In this page, we will show you the differences of BlackBerry, iPhone and Android OS in details. After that, a phone to phone transfer program will be illustrated to help you transfer data between two smart phones. Now let's see BlackBerry vs. iPhone vs. Android first.
- BlackBerry OS: The BlackBerry OS is RIM's proprietary operating system for its range of smart phones. Renowned for superb email integration, the BlackBerry was originally a device targeted particularly at corporate users. These days, the BlackBerry is as much a consumer device as it is a business tool, but its strong emphasis on email remains. The BlackBerry is famous for its trackball and QWERTY keyboard design, and many users swear by its physical keyboard for fast text entry. BlackBerry App World, an app store similar to iPhone's App Store, has already been launched in international markets.
Pros: Fantastic email, trackball or track pad is easy to navigate, multitasking, complete wireless synchronization.
Cons: Touch-screen model was less than impressive, Web browsing needs improvement.
- iPhone OS: The iOS is Apple's operating system for its iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices. Best known for its ease of use thanks to the excellent capacitive touch screen used in Apple's handsets, the iPhone OS also has the largest mobile application store - the App Store. The iPhone OS is widely considered to have the best mobile Web browser, Safari, and the best MP3 playback thanks to its iPod feature. Despite its popularity, the iPhone OS has been criticized for its closed nature, the lack of multitasking and Apple's stringent review process for third-party apps. In addition, heavy e-mailers may not take to the iPhone's on-screen keyboard.
Pros: Ease of use, shallow learning curve, great mobile Web browser, excellent App Store.
Cons: Stringent app approval process, not able to send files via Bluetooth, closed OS, lack of multitasking.
- Android OS: The Android OS is an open-source operating system initially developed by Google, which brings together mobile phone manufacturers, software developers and telecoms. Like the iOS, Android is purely designed for touch-screen phones. However because of its open source it can run on a variety of devices, including candy-bar and slider smart phones. The Android OS is best known for being easy to customize and having tight integration with Google services such as Gmail.
Pros: User-friendly, open source, ability to tweak and customize, multitasking.
Cons: Still in its infancy, much smaller development community compared to the iPhone, not as polished as alternatives.
