Google Once upon a time, in a land, far, far away, there were two mobile operating systems. One of them was designed for mobile from the ground up; the other was trying really hard to copy its older, desktop brother. One was limited in functionality, inflexible and lacked multitasking, but was very efficient, fast, and easy to use. The other had everything and the kitchen sink, was very flexible and could multitask, but had a steep learning curve, was inconsistent, and not particularly pretty.

I suppose Symbian deserves to be mentioned in all this, as it was as well a flexible and powerful mobile OS, with interesting variants (both the Nokia developments and the stylus oriented UIQ from Ericsson)
