In the past few months, new versions have been released for three of the biggest mobile operating systems: Apple’s iOS, Google’s Android OS, and Microsoft’s Windows Phone. I’m pleased to be able to say that Brighthand has reviewed all of these, so we can present you with information on the best mobile platforms available today.

Android OS 4.0 — The goal of this version is to bring together the two previous editions of Google’s OS. Android OS 2.3 (Gingerbread) was designed for smartphones, with OS 3.x (Honeycomb) was only for tablets. The new edition, code-named Ice Cream Sandwich, runs on both. You can find out how well the merging of features went in our review.

iOS 5.0 — The iPhone 4S debuted with a new version of the iOS. However, older iDevices received an upgrade. If you like to learn what the iPhone 4 offers these days, read our review of iOS 5.0.

Windows Phone 7.5 — This new version was known as Mango before its release, and it’s the first really major update to Windows Phone since it launched in 2010. Microsoft added a greatly updated web browser in this version, and made a lot of other tweaks to the user interface and other apps. Check out our review to see everything that’s included.
