The History of Mobile Operating Systems

Mobile operating systems have come far in the last 15 years. From dull screens with no Internet connection, to the mini-computers that we have today, the changes have been staggering. [x]cubeLABS has a graphic on its site displaying the progression of several mobile operating systems over the years.

For a full-sized look at the chart, check out The Evolution of Mobile Operating Systems at [x]cubeLABS.

I’ve used a couple versions of Palm OS, Windows Mobile, iOS, and now Android. How many of the operating systems have you used? Do you have a favorite?

[Disclaimer: the creator of the chart previously sponsored a text link here at 40Tech a month or two ago, but we’re writing about this chart because we think it is pretty darn cool.]
