How are Samsung’s Bada OS and Nokia’s Symbian OS competing with Android and iOS?
The future of operating systems and internet lies with the small gadgets which are compact and yet efficient. There are numerous open-source Operating systems available in the market for the computers. But the mobile phones are becoming smarter day by day. So in order to pave the path of prosperity for such devices, companies such as Google, Nokia and Samsung have taken the lead. The competition for the operating systems market of smart phones is really heating up. Nokia’s Symbian OS is finding it tough to compete with the Google’s Android Operating System and Apple’s iOS designed for the iPhones. Samsung has recently launched its all new open source smart phone OS named Bada which is specifically designed to compete with Android.
Strictly speaking Android has got a major hold on market share because of which the other operating systems are playing the catching up game. Due to the popularity of Android other operating Systems have to reinvent their technologies. Firstly Nokia is in dire need of new injection of applications to sustain with its Symbian operating system. It is gradually losing its foothold in the market. The Android is proving to be more than a handful for Nokia. Still Symbian with its new range of Smart phones such as E7 and N8 is trying really hard to give a tough fight to the comparatively new Operating systems such as Android and iOS that have arrived in the market.
If we take a look at the Samsung Bada OS that has been launched recently by the South Korea based company we would find that it has a much improved performance in comparison to the age old Nokia Symbian OS. However the Samsung Wave is working absolutely fine with Bada and is perhaps outperforming some major smart phones designed across the globe.
Smart phones are a high end market and therefore the opportunities are also limited to a certain extent. In spite of such major disadvantages that the market faces Google Android has virtually gripped every such smart phone user’s imagination. Android does eat up the battery a bit too much in comparison to the other operating systems yet it provides the widest list of widgets and other functionalities that is unimaginable in other smart other smart phone OS. Android and iOS of Apple has a vital lead over Symbian since it is an open source OS. Because of this many smart devices are trying to get a hold on the Android and incorporate them in their devices.
The first look and the best possible experience of BADA can be generated on the Samsung Wave. Yet after you spend a good bit of time with Bada you would still miss the Android somewhere if you have explored Android fully.
There is always room for improvement for both Bada and Symbian. Bada and Symbian OS can take heart from the fact that the developer support for such non-Android operating systems has increased vastly in comparison to the past few years. For instance Apple iOS has increased the application store for its devices. Bada being a new OS compared to Symbian it is finding it hard to merge seamlessly with other phones apart from Samsung. But it’s sure that if the OS can present itself in the best possible way then it can easily take on Symbian and Android one at a time. There are a handful of phones that are using Bada as their operating system so time would tell if Samsung is really able to compete in the highly competitive market of smart phone OS.
