PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless With WebOS out of the picture and the Blackberry Playbook as good as gone as well, we really only have iOS and Android left until Windows 8 comes out. I’ve finally gotten around to getting an Android device myself and spent the last week trying to see if my theoretical knowledge of the system and what I remember from the last Android device I had (which ran 1.6, viewed as ancient in Android land) fits reality. Read on for a full tear down and comparison on the two OSes.

Ah, Symbian S60. My all-time favorite mobile os. Lightweight, responsive, and it didn't hog the battery. Damn Nokia forever for what they did to it. I held out with Symbian as long as I could, but eventually I gave in for the convenience of actually having decent modern apps. The really sad thing is, if Nokia and the Symbian foundation hadn't gone bonkers with those $200/year certificates for app distribution as of S63rd, there could've been third party Symbian markets for years yet. But who's going to pay that kind of money to develop for a dead platform?
