Windows, Android, iOS, Jelly Beans: a look at tablet operating systems
An operating system (or OS) is a platform that tablets and computers use to run apps and games. The tablet market is dominated by three operating systems: Apple’s iOS, Google’s Android and Microsoft’s Windows. Though you’ll find many different manufacturers designing tablets, the majority of them will rely on one of these big three developers to provide the operating system. They operate on the same basic principles - touch screen interface and apps to access content, but each has its unique values to suit your needs.
