Operating System: The Captivate runs on Android, a graphical interface developed by Google that has a growing following by consumers. Google developed Android to be open and easy for developers to create new applications, and there is a large market of free or low-cost apps. Windows Phone 7 was developed by Microsoft and it should be considered a proprietary system, much like Apple's iPhone operating system. All three operating systems -- Android, iPhone OS and Windows Phone 7 -- are targeting the same users who want highly visual, easy-to-use phones from which they can handle both work and life requirements.
