[Infographic] Android vs. iPhone vs. Blackberry vs. Windows Phone

Authored by: Steven Blum — Nov 7, 2011

In the war for smartphone supremacy, you've got to know your competitors' strengths and weaknesses to be able to compete in the market. Where does Android coming out looking fa-bu-lous and iOS not-so-hot? Where does Mango reign supreme? Let's take a look...

This extensive infographic provides an overview of the differences between Android, Mango and iOS. It's a fairly exhaustive comparison, so a summary is difficult. However, there are some trends. Not surprisingly, app quality on iOS was judged as better than Android's while the reverse held true for customization. Blackberry's email client was judged as the best while live updates supposedly looked most elegant on Mango.

Some of the categories are a bit subjective, though, such as usability and design. Other judgements should be questioned: for example, how can the quality and quantity of apps for Mango be rated so high when there are so few of them (approx. 1,000 at launch)?

In any case, it's quite a thorough review. Enjoy!
