1 Mobile Platform Comparison 2010/01/06


3 What is Symbian? An proprietary operating system for mobile devices and smartphones by Symbian Ltd. Symbian is the world's most popular mobile operating system, accounting for 50% of smartphone sales in Q2 2009. The process of publishing the source code under the Eclipse Public License (EPL) was slated for completion in 2010.

4 Symbian’s History YearEvent 1980Psion founded by David Potter 1984Psion Organiser launched 1986the "vastly improved" Psion Organiser II launches, with a simple-to-use database programming language, OPL. 1987Psion begins development of its “SIBO" family of devices and its own new multitasking operating system called EPOC to run its PDA products. 1989First EPOC16 devices, the MC400 and MC200, ship with a primarily 1-bit, keyboard-operated graphical interface. 1997The first version of EPOC32 Release 1 appeared on the Psion Series 5 ROM v1.0. The EPOC32 operating system, at the time simply referred to as EPOC, was later renamed Symbian OS. EPOC32 was a pre-emptive multitasking, single user operating system with memory protection, which encourages the application developer to separate their program into an engine and an interface. 1998In June Psion Software became Symbian, a major joint venture between Psion and phone manufacturers Ericsson, Motorola, and Nokia. As of Release 6, EPOC became known simply as Symbian OS. 1999The Psion Series 5mx, Psion Series 7, Psion Revo, Diamond Mako, Psion netBook, netPad, GeoFox One, and Ericsson MC218 were released using ER5. A phone project was announced at CeBIT, the Phillips Illium/Accent, but did not achieve a commercial release. 2000The first phone, the Ericsson R380 was released using ER5u in November. 2001The first 'open' Symbian OS phone, the Nokia 9210 Communicator, was released in June 2001. Bluetooth support was added. Almost 500,000 Symbian phones were shipped in 2001, rising to 2.1 million the following year. 2003First shipment of Symbian OS 7.0 and 7.0s, an important Symbian release which appeared with all contemporary user interfaces including UIQ, Series 80, Series 90, Series 60 as well as several FOMA phones in Japan. It also added EDGE support and IPv6. One million Symbian phones were shipped in Q1 2003, with the rate increasing to one million a month by the end of 2003. 2004Psion sells its stake in Symbian. 2006100 millionth phone with Symbian OS is shipped. 2008Symbian acquired by Nokia; Symbian Foundation formed.

9 What is Android Android is a software stack for mobile devices that includes an operating system, middleware and key applications. The Android SDK provides the tools and APIs necessary to begin developing applications on the Android platform using the Java programming language.

10 Android’s History In July 2005, Google acquired Android, Inc. Update History: –1.5 (Cupcake) Released on 30 April 2009 –1.6 (Donut) Released on 15 September 2009 –2.0 (Eclair) Released on 26 October 2009 –2.0.1 Release 1 Released on 3 December 2009 –Upcoming software stack is to be named Flan

11 Android’s History Handset layouts The platform is adaptable to larger, VGA, 2D graphics library, 3D graphics library based on OpenGL ES 1.0 specifications, and traditional smartphone layouts. StorageThe Database Software SQLite is used for data storage purposes ConnectivityAndroid supports connectivity technologies including GSM/EDGE, CDMA, EV-DO, UMTS, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. MessagingSMS and MMS are available forms of messaging including threaded text messaging.text Web browserThe web browser available in Android is based on the open-source WebKit application framework. The browser scores a 93/100 on the Acid3 Test. Java supportSoftware written in Java can be compiled to be executed in the Dalvik virtual machine, which is a specialized VM implementation designed for mobile device use, although not technically a standard Java Virtual Machine. Media supportAndroid supports the following audio/video/still media formats: H.263, H.264 (in 3GP or MP4 container), MPEG-4 SP, AMR, AMR-WB (in 3GP container), AAC,HE-AAC (in MP4 or 3GP container), MP3, MIDI, OGG Vorbis, WAV, JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP. Additional hardware suuport Android can use video/still cameras, touchscreens, GPS, accelerometers, magnetometers, accelerated 2D bit blits (with hardware orientation, scaling, pixel format conversion) and accelerated 3D graphics. Development environment Includes a device emulator, tools for debugging, memory and performance profiling, a plugin for the Eclipse IDE. MarketLike many phone-based application stores, the Android Market is a catalog of applications that can be downloaded and installed to target hardware over-the-air, without the use of a PC. Originally only freeware applications were supported. Paid-for apps have been available on the Android Market in the United States since 19 February 2009. [36] The Android Market has been expanding rapidly. By December, 2009, it had over 20,000 Android applications for download. [36] Muti-touchAndroid has native support for multi-touch which is available in newer handsets such as the HTC Hero. The feature was initially disabled at the kernel level (possibly to avoid infringing Apple patents on touch-screen technology)

12 Android’s Features Application framework enabling reuse and replacement of components Dalvik virtual machine optimized for mobile devices Integrated browser based on the open source WebKit engine Optimized graphics powered by a custom 2D graphics library; 3D graphics based on the OpenGL ES 1.0 specification SQLite for structured data storage Media support for common audio, video, and still image formats GSM Telephony Bluetooth, EDGE, 3G, and WiFi Camera, GPS, compass, and accelerometer Rich development environment including a device emulator, tools for debugging, memory and performance profiling, and a plugin for the Eclipse IDE

22 What isn’t Windows Mobile –Is not the same operating system and functionality of Windows that you have on your desktop PC –Doesn’t run standard Windows applications including ActiveX controls designed for the PC. –Limited browser functionality – subset of JavaScript and limited screen size affect usability of desktop websites –Slower devices – most Windows Mobile devices CPUs run at 200-400MHz –Limited storage – The internal flash storage is significantly smaller than your PC’s hard drive. Usually you will have anywhere from 32MB to 128MB of internal storage
