Android, Symbian OS 4, Who’s Got Game?

While mobile phones have the capability of dedicated gaming platforms like the Sony PSP or Nintendo DS approach
they still offer impressive gaming potential. We have a look at the three biggest names in the phone’s firmware – Google’s Android
Apple OS 4
and the open-source alternative Symbian. Our goal was to answer a simple question: Which mobile operating system is better for Mobile Gaming for each system
we saw two types of games – dedicated online?. Dedicated games are something written specifically for this platform
they must usually purchased
downloaded and installed to be eaten. Online games are just that – they are there
on the Internet
and users need only to show your phone’s web browser to them to play. This web games use either Flash or Java technology
and simple Tetris-clones to real money area casino games like slot machines
or. Android Published in October 2008
Google’s Android mobile operating system on a Linux-based kernel. From early 2010
it is the fourth most popular smartphone platform
at least in the U.S.. The Android OS supports both acceleration and multi-touch interaction. It has excellent graphics capabilities
especially when it comes to its 3D rendering capabilities. Games like the popular 3D Battle HomeRun really show what the device is capable of. Optically
Android games rival the Nintendo DS and products that are a touch-screen interface facilitates the comparability still apt.Online Gaming on the Android suffers offer. Its Java support is mediocre
and as of yet
it does not support Flash
so most online games do not run well on Android devices. Fortunately
the full Flash support with the v2.2 update has been promised
due later this year. Pro Excellent graphics features Multi-touch and accelerometer support Cons lack of available games Very bad web game support Apple OS 4 Apples upcoming update to the iPhone
iPod Touch and iPad software was taken care of headlines recently. It offers several major updates to the existing version
especially its multitasking capabilities.For gamer
but not much new. Apple has cried about the new game center
but users seem less excited. It is basically a clone of Xbox Live multiplayer gaming over networks offers. While Apple at the forefront in this department
we have to see how this pans the new Game Center
OS supports 4 out.Beyond an enormous variety of downloadable games available through the Apple Apps Store . Many are free
and those who have not come very cheap. The variety is excellent and the quality is often breathtaking
especially when on a iPad.As for online gaming
like OS 4 rates pretty well. Despite its lack of Flash
there are many dedicated iPhone games
which can be played instantly on the web. In addition to many 3rd party vendors
Apple hosts a huge variety of “official” web apps on his website. Pro incredible number of downloadable and Web-based games Multi-touch and accelerometer support Cons No flash Unterstü ; estimation (maybe never) games can be expensive Symbian The open source smartphone platform has been in development for a while but the code was just released in February 2010. Almost half of all smartphones sold in the Symbian OS and is the world’s most popular mobile operating system. Most devices out there running on older Symbian versions. In fact
at the time of writing
only one device supports the new Symbian ^ 3 – N8 Nokia. Its touch-screen
high-definition video and 3D graphics accelerator begging for hardcore games on its borders to bring. Unfortunately
Symbian behind the times and has quite a lot of catching up to do before it can compete with Google or Apple for a top position in the mobile market. Yes
the numbe
rs of Symbian’s favor
but if we look at quality over quantity
it comes in last.Oh yeah
games – Symbian has excellent Java support
making it suitable for Web based games
but then
most Symbian devices don ‘t touch screens
they can play complicated. Dedicated games for Symbian are rare and tend to look and play like the best games from five years ago.
The widespread availability
high device compatibility Excellent Java support makes Web-Gaming easy
Most phones run old versions Not much in the way of download games Judgement? It is hard to say. Symbian slopes gently into the 3rd Place
that’s for sure
but Apple’s OS 4 and Google’s Android fight hard for the first place. Apple has to offer in any event the “wow factor” and the number of available games is amazing
but with Android flash get with the next update
it is something that iPhone users have to have been years. At the end of the day we are tempted to call Apple OS 4 of the winners of the mobile phone gaming war
but the world is moving fast
and Android is catching up fast.

IPhone OS 4.0 – on the new features and who are the strongest

What OS 4.0 will bring to the iPhone? First line: multi-tasking. Apple has finally found the last piece of the puzzle, and found their dev team, how to let the iPod and similar devices that run more than one app at a time, all without killing the battery. Double-clicking the Home button opens a screen of currently running applications, and a second click will focus on the target application immediately. Early reports say this new multitasking support is amazingly efficient -. But beware, be limited to 4-user applications running at once Other new features include a few user interface improvements. Users can organize the applications into folders, change the background behind the icons and save up to 2,000 icons instead of the current 180th Business users This class of iPhone users is available on most benefits. The new multitasking more than quadruple the performance of the iPhone, and the time it takes to reduce to do everyday tasks. Increased security measures such as the ability to encrypt emails and PIN codes will certainly benefit companies. The new "Unified Inbox" system in the mail application will also benefit business users, they had to manage multiple e-mail accounts simultaneously. Casual users Again, does the new multitasking support large change in how the iPhone works. Casual users can now flow to the Internet via Safari music while reading an iBook, for example. The ability to customize the iPhone interface even more by the background makes the device more personal. A variety of other new features, by the way, photos to a new 5x zoom rotate the camera, all will come together to OS 4.0 a big step-up for casual users. Gamers

3G and second generation iPod touch owners Sorry, because of its old hardware, you will not be able to take full advantage of some of the new features that OS 4.0 does. Above all, your device does not support the new feature multi-tasking, so you will only be able to establish a program at a time. Original iPhone and iPod touch owners No luck running The first generation devices simply do not support OS 4.0. Owners of these devices do you think about an upgrade.

A new "feature" that is introduced with OS 4.0 is not as welcome as the Other: IAD. These introduce new mobile advertising system in-app advertising. The system enables full-screen video and even interactive advertising content from an application to start out without the need to send the user to offer Safari to this type of content. In some ways the new system is less intrusive than before, but at the same time it can only open the iPhone up to more spam. A total of previews and hands-on reviews of the new OS 4.0 are very positive. Most users will benefit at least some level of the upgrade, and all users are encouraged to take the plunge. The only people that are left in the dark, are owners of older models – and of course those poor souls who do not yet have an iPhone of their own !
