by Ellen Wills Content Developer

The new hi-tech smartphone's are a huge hit in the market as the result of the features and functionalities that they offer, despite making calls, sending messages, listening to music etc... Not only individuals but businesses too have achieved significant benefits by making use of the mobile technologies.

The rising demand for enhanced practicality in mobile devices has given birth to the rapidly expanding range of advanced technologies for custom mobile application development. Here's a list of the most popular mobile platforms that changed the face of mobile industry.


Google's Android has received great applause from people across the world. Designed specifically for the geeks, it currently holds a major share of the smartphone market. The popularity of Android to a great extent is due to the versatility of the platform, availability of Android powered phones in different shapes, different sizes and across different hardware manufacturers, making it more easily accessible for the techno-savvy.

The openness of the platform allows users to stuff their devices with features and apps of their choice for a personalized smartphone experience. Android offers a good level of support for integration of business services like Microsoft Exchange and such.

Although Android's position seems to be strong in the market right now, it's difficult to foretell how things will work out.


Apple's iPhone is the most advanced smartphone's in the industry and holds a strong position in the market. It is powered by iOS, an operating system packed with loads of features. Unlike, Android iPhone apps are subjected to serious scrutiny before users can get their hands on them. The downside of this is Apple keeps control over the platform as a whole and does not offer flexibility.

But for businesses, there is no better platform than iPhone that guarantees quality and reliability for the users and ultimately the business enterprises, ensuring great return on investment. Further, the visual appearance and intuitive interface of iPhone makes it favorite of business executives as well as an ideal platform for deployment of commercial applications.


Microsoft's Windows Mobile and Windows 7 phone has enjoyed varying degrees of success in the corporate as well as consumer market. Popular brands such as HTC and LG are producing handsets powered by Windows phone operating system.

Windows Mobile has been widely adopted by manufactures of PDAs and Mobiles, specifically designed for commercial use. From mobile app development perspective Windows provides a rich set of features and development tools.

RIM BlackBerry

RIM BlackBerry platform for a long period was considered to be the best choice for professionals as well as business entrepreneurs. Over the years Blackberry has made significant advances and has introduced several new handsets that have proved to be popular among the youngsters.

The platform offers an array of enterprise services with Blackberry Enterprise Server seen as a major asset for the corporate users. It offers enhanced security features, making it a preferred choice for those who heavily rely upon this platform.

Possibly, the major issue with this platform is that the web browsers supported by the system are far more less advanced when compared to those of Android and iPhone. However, the more recent models have to a great extent been successful in addressing this issue with the inclusion of the latest Web-Kit browser.

The mobile applications being available in the market are not restricted to a particular platform or category.
