									Android Jelly Bean vs. Windows OS 8 vs. iOS 6

Apple is all set to launch iOS 6, while Microsoft has added several new features to
Windows OS 8. Android's Jelly Bean disappointed most of its fans, but Google inserted
several innovative features in Jelly Bean, making it better than it used to be. All the
three companies are working hard to stay ahead in the race for smartphone
domination. Apple's successful lawsuit against Samsung is bound to elevate iPhone
apps development, adversely affect Android apps development, and give Windows app
development a chance to capture a larger part of the market.

Here, we will take a look at the three operating systems and see how well they perform
in the following key areas: UI, Maps, camera, mCommerce and Browser.

So, which one is the best?
Apple, Windows, and Android are the three major players in the mobile market.
Windows 8 is the new kid on the block, but it offers a wide range of powerful features
that will definitely give boost to Windows app development. Android app development
is bound to benefit from the latest features that were added to Jelly Bean. Apple iPhone
is one step ahead of most other mobile operating systems, and iPhone app
development is a great idea.

For any businessman, it is imperative to develop apps for mobile operating systems.
While iPhone and Android are leading the mobile market, Windows is bound to catch
up within the next few years.
