iOS 7 Vs Android 4.2 Vs Windows Phone 8 Vs Blackberry 10 – Comparison

iOS 7 Vs Android 4.2 Vs Windows Phone 8 Vs Blackberry 10 – Comparison


While there are still mixed reactions on iOS 7 which comes with an all new design, let’s check out a detailed comparison table which gives you a detailed insight on where each of the OS stands. While some say that iOS is an explicit copy of Windows Phone OS as well as from Android’s Jellybean OS, it has become tough for Apple to give out clarification. 

With Google keenly looking at the iOS 7, it seems like the next version of Android will surely be different from what we saw till now. Rumors are doing the rounds that the next version of Android will also be supporting the low end devices. In recent Android OS version, Jellybean 4.1 – 4.2.2 didn’t see many changes in terms of UI /UX and almost looked same.
