The Great Smartphone OS Shootout: Windows, Apple, and Android; What Should You get?

Now that smartphones are available for basically every provider, everyone wants to have the newest device with the latest operating system. Unfortunately, many people look at the phone's specifications before they look at the system it runs on. In my opinion, pretty much every "smartphone" produced this year has specs that will suit anyone's normal phone use and this is why choosing a phone with a comfortable OS is very important. Here is a simple guideline that will help you get started:

If you like Windows 7, you will most likely want a Windows Phone 7.
If you like Apple OS X Lion (or other versions), you will most likely want to get an Iphone 4 (or 3gs)
If you like Linux, you will most likely want an android phone.

To me it's as simple as that. Currently, both my laptops are dual booted with Windows 7 and Ubuntu but phone wise I chose a Samsung Focus and I am extremely satisfied.

Also, just something to remember if you don't have much experience with these computer operating systems is that Apple usually has a "locked" OS, which means you don't have many customization options. Windows gives you a little more freedom but not as much as Android systems.

If you have any questions I will be more than willing to give my 2 cents just write a comment.
