    • Comparing the Six Four Main OS Systems Deciphering the Mess - App stores and all.
    • Intro • Chad Udell • Solutions Architect - Float Learning • Blog at Visualrinse.com and FloatLearning.com
    • Layers of the mobile world • Carrier • Network • Device • OS • Platform
    • Layers of the mobile world • Carrier • Network • Device • OS • Platform
    • • 2010 - 15% of all phones sold are smartphones • 2011 estimates - 40% of sales will be • who are the players?
    • #1
    • #1 - Blackberry
    • The Smartphone Grand-daddy • Biggest Marketshare (21%) • Oldest Approach to Smartphone-ism (2002)
    • Basics • Mature OS (4.6 widespread, 5 is ready) • Java Based OS • A tad archaic in its user experience
    • App Development • Store is a second party approach • Enterprise provisioning and push is a plus • Encryption and security at expense of flashiness
    • Web Development • Browsing isn’t its strong suit • Ajax based RIAs are a pain • Next OS is web focused • Even still, no Flash
    • #2
    • #2 - iPhone
    • The Established Cool Guy • Sizable Marketshare (14%) • Was a gamechanger, now ‘the man’
    • Basics • Mature OS (3.x, 4, coming soon) • Objective C based Custom OS (iOS) • Made for the internet and media consumer
    • App Development • Registration Requirement • Store is 100% them • Enterprise provisioning and push is a tad weak • 200,000+ apps and growing
    • Web Development • A solid, but sometimes slowish browser (Mobile Safari) • Ajax based RIAs run great! • No Flash! >:-
    • #3
    • #3 - Android
    • The Upstart • Rapidly Growing Marketshare (3% Q2 2009, 9% Q1 2010) • Outselling iPhone • Multiple OEMs, Carriers • An ‘ecosystem’
    • Basics • OS is still solidifying (1.5, 1.6, 2.1, 2.2) • Java based Open OS SDK, C is ok • Built on a Linux kernel • Made for the post iPhone consumer
    • App Development • $25 Registration Fee • Open-ish store, AdHoc distro is welcome • Enterprise provisioning and push is largely MIA • 50,000+ apps and growing
    • Web Development • A modern mobile browser (Chromium Mobile) • Ajax based RIAs run great! • Flash! :-)
    • #5
    • #5 - Windows Mobile
    • Lost and Searching? • Diminishing Marketshare (9%) • Number of new handsets is down • OS 7 looks promising • Just fired the dev staff?!
    • Basics • OS is somewhat stagnant • Scaled back windows OS • 7 (when it comes) is a Zune/Silverlight hybrid • 7’s backwards compatibility is in question
    • App Development • No Reg Requirement • Open-ish store, AdHoc distro is welcome • Enterprise provisioning and push is one of the strengths
    • Web Development • Antiquated browser • CSS and JS is pretty tough to get working • Old version of Flash! :-(
