3. Operating Systems

3.1. Android

3.1.1. The Android software development kit (SDK) includes a comprehensive set of development tools.[76] These include a debugger, libraries, a handset emulator (based on QEMU), documentation, sample code, and tutorials. The SDK is downloadable on the android developer website. Currently supported development platforms include computers running Linux (any modern desktop Linux distribution), Mac OS X 10.4.9 or later, Windows XP or later.

3.2. IOS

3.2.1. iOS (known as iPhone OS prior to June 2010) is Apple's mobile operating system. Originally developed for the iPhone, it has since been extended to support other Apple devices such as the iPod touch, iPad and Apple TV. Apple does not license iOS for installation on third-party hardware. As of January 14, 2011 (2011 -01-14)[update], Apple's App Store contains more than 300,000 iOS applications,[1] which have collectively been downloaded more than 10 billion times.

3.3. RIM

3.3.1. The operating system is designed for use of input devices such as the track wheel, track ball, and track pad. The OS provides support for Java MIDP 1.0 and WAP 1.2. Previous versions allowed wireless synchronization with Microsoft Exchange Server e-mail and calendar, as well as with Lotus Domino e-mail. The current OS 5.0 provides a subset of MIDP 2.0, and allows complete wireless activation and synchronization with Exchange e-mail, calendar, tasks, notes and contacts, and adds support for Novell GroupWise and Lotus Notes.

3.4. Symbian

3.4.1. Symbian has a microkernel architecture, which means that the minimum necessary is within the kernel to maximise robustness, availability and responsiveness. It contains a scheduler, memory management and device drivers, but other services like networking, telephony and filesystem support are placed in the OS Services Layer or the Base Services Layer. The inclusion of device drivers means the kernel is not a true microkernel. The EKA2 real-time kernel, which has been termed a nanokernel, contains only the most basic primitives and requires an extended kernel to implement any other abstractions.

4. My Choice

4.1. Out of the top 5 smart phones of 2011 I would choose the Apple iPhone 4. I chose this phone because it has many features and according to people's reviews it is not hard to use. Other phones, like androids, are more complicated to use. Also I chose it because I am more familiar with the settings and apps it has. I also like the size and the touch screen it has. Since the iPhone is only with Verizon and AT&T, I would choose to have it with Verizon. It is more economical because it has the cheapest unlimited data plan.
