Today, Android is undoubtedly most popular and most used mobile operating system in world. At present, Android mobile operating system has direct competition with Window’s mobile operating system. So far, Window’s mobile operating system is much behind android in reach and popularity; however, it is increasing its presence with new launches. In next few days, Microsoft is going to launch Window 8 mobile operating system. Microsoft says that Window 8 mobile is much better than Window 7 mobile. In last few years, high end mobile market has grown very fast thus increasing demand for better mobile operating systems. Therefore, Microsoft has also realized need for a good mobile operating system to remain successful in operating system business. Microsoft is clear winner when it comes to computer based operating systems; however, in mobile operating systems Google is clear winners because it entered this market very early and at right time. Apple’s iOS mobile operating software does not looks to have direct competition with others because it is only restricted to Apple’s Iphone only and same is the story with Blackberry operating system. On the other hand, Nokia has already stopped development of its own mobile operating software Symbian. Therefore, there remain only two major players one is Google’s Android and other is Microsoft’s Window based mobile operating software. Now question comes in front of us is that which out of these two operating systems in best.
