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.

I liked symbian too. However only 2 of those 3 were correct. I generally found S60 to be kind of sluggish at times, but it was so capable in a device with only physical buttons that I didn't care.

I Think what held it back also was the complete weirdness of symbian c++. If only they had gone with Qt sooner...
