2. An operating system (OS) is an interface between hardware and user. It
manages hardware and software resources of the system.
An operating system which controls mobile devices is called Mobile OS.
They are simple and deal with the wireless versions of broadband and local
It is specifically designed to run on mobile devices such as mobile
phones, smartphones, PDAs, tablet computers and other handheld devices.
4. Android OS (Google Inc.)
Bada (Samsung Electronics)
BlackBerry OS (Research In Motion)
iPhone OS / iOS (Apple)
MeeGo OS (Nokia and Intel)
Palm OS (Garnet OS)
Symbian OS (Nokia
Windows Mobile (Windows Phone)
5. Bada is a proprietary Samsung mobile OS that was first
launched in 2010.
The Samsung Wave was the first smart phone to use this mobile
Bada provides mobile features such as multipoint-touch, 3D
graphics and of course, application downloads and installation.
6. The BlackBerry OS is a proprietary mobile operating system developed by
Research In Motion
The BlackBerry platform is popular with corporate users as it offers
synchronization with Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Domino, Novell
GroupWise email and other business software, when used with the
BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
7. A software platform and operating system for mobile
Based on the Linux kernel and Virus Free.
Android Open Source Project.
This OS is originally developed for the location based
service provided with a unique user interface.
Developed by Google and later the Open Handset
Allows writing managed code in the Java language
9. • Android uses Linux for its device drivers, memory management, process
management, and networking.
• They are all written in C/C++ internally, but you’ll be calling them through
• In this layer you can find the Surface Manager, 2D and 3D graphics, Media
codes, the SQL database (SQLite), and a native web browser engine
10. DVM(Dalvik Virtual Machine)
Android OS Run on the ARM based chipset devices.
Dalvik runs dex files, which are converted at compile time from standard
class and jar files.
As Android devices use java for core programming process, it is to have
JRE(Java Run Time Environment).
But Instead of using JRE android use A specialized virtual machine called
This virtual Machine is optimized to run java code and Make a link
between hardware and core of android system.
12. Kernel (Brain of OS)
The kernel is the main component of most mobile
operating systems; it is a bridge between applications
and the actual data processing done at the hardware
Almost every mobile has different types of kernel
installed on devices.
Android uses Linux kernel to execute various
Kernel contains hardware drivers, Memory location
Information, automatic logic unit, power management
14. Supports 2D, 3D graphics
Supports Multiple Languages
Android supports different languages. We can say all famous languages
about more than 100. By using this feature it is easy to adopt to different
languages. Earlier in the feature phones English is to be the only language
in the mobile devices.
15. Java Support
The Java supporting feature enables developers to enhance more features. As it
supports Java, operating can be developed.
Faster Web Browser
As it enabled with web browser we surf web easily without complexity just like in a
computer. It easily loads multimedia so that it makes web browsing faster.
It Supports MP4, 3GP, MPEG4, MIDI
It supports different types of formats. There is no need to convert from one format
to another, as it enabled with different formats of audio and video styles.
Additional Hardware Support
Any hardware can be easily connected with the Android based devices easily. We can
make a device to connect internally to get more features.
Faster data connection enables to do video call. We can take advantage of bandwidth
and new generation networks using Android.
16. Open Source Framework
It makes users to make their own applications and to make changes
required for themselves. Enthusiasts can make Android more powerful
and useful by developing themselves. As it is an open source operating
system, we can use it easily and without cost in the equipments.
Uses of Tools are Very Simple
It makes use of a single button to do more than assigned work. For
example volume control button can be made to click a photo by
changing simple algorithm in the android.
17. Availability of Apps
Anyone can make use lot of free apps in the app store and from other android stores.
It gives freedom to install from third party users.
Great Social Networking Integration
Integration can be made to different social networking sites, so you can enhance
Better Notification System
It makes users to check important notifications directly from the dashboard.
It makes work easy. Earlier we used to go for every application refresh to
Updated User Interface Design
Interfacing that means human to machine integration made to update in
android. Touch screen made very useful change in the mobile use.ex
18. Low Chance of Crashing
The Android OS is very smooth and easy to operate and less chances of crashing
Stability and security is better than other mobiles OS as it is based on Linux
Improved Power Management and Application Control

Developers can easily intregrate Google Service in Android App where
Siymbian has some restrictions.
Android Play Store is More Popular than Symbian (Nokia Store).

29. Price points
Customization (One of the strong points of Android has always been
the level of customization it allows. While Apple wants to keep
control of default apps in order to maintain a homogenous software
and hardware experience, Android lets you pick your own level of
30. Custom ROMs(Another reason why Android is better than iPhone is you
can actually replace the software that came with your device with a custom
ROM, if you want to. This is essentially installing a new operating system,
and many Android users do it because their carrier or manufacturer is slow
to upgrade to the latest version of the Android platform).
31. Widget (Android’s widgets have long been a feather in its cap compared to
the static rows of icons you find in iOS. Even Microsoft saw the advantage,
developing the Live Tiles system for Windows Phone. Widgets are still a
major advantage for Android over iOS. Simply put, you can see all of the
information you want at a glance on your home screen without having to
fire up an app.)
Speed of improvement
34. Windows Mobile is a mobile operating system developed by Microsoft that

43. Disadvantages of Android OS
compared to ‘ios’ of apple,windows 8 of Microsoft.when we open same app
in the ios and windoes8. We observe the slow response of the android when
we open apps in the different platforms.
Compared to other operating systems android makes use of processes very
efficient. This makes processor to get heat. Some hardware companies take
care to reduce heat,but it went in vain when we operate it a long time and at
When we use an android app we encounter several adds in between
application use, because anyone can make add by inserting some logic in
the app program and can interfere in into the phones information.
44. We can only hope that the next versions of Android have overcome the
actual limitations and that the future possibilities became a reality
