Smartphone turf war is enraging gradually and original equipment manufacturers (OEM) are taking every possible step to humble their competitors. Be it hardware or software, every one of them is bringing new features to the board. The month of June was evident of the case as the likes of Google, Apple, Microsoft and Research In Motion brought up their respective mobile operating systems.

Though all the aforementioned use different business models, platforms and live in different ecosystems, there are all interrelated in effect to the market. These launches might not have an immediate effect on the market but the near future of the industry is about to take a new turn with the possibility of some big pillars falling down or new ones protruding to new heights.

iOS has been a dominant player in the smartphone market for a long time now, but Android is quickly catching up, in fact in some regions it is already the top seed. Windows Phone is taking big, bold and fearless strides to narrow the lead taken by these old players. RIM, the beleaguering company, is turning every stone to stay in the market.

However, as it goes with technology industry, the consumer market is always unpredictable. New players come, old companies catch dust, only the innovators and customer caring live through the day.

The month of June was a busy schedule for the media as the aforementioned released newest versions of their respective operating systems in quick succession. RIM was the first to show off its upcoming BlackBerry 10. Apple followed quickly with iOS 6 at the WWDC and then came along Google with its new Android 4.1 Jelly Bean upgrade and Microsoft putting an end to the busy traffics in San Francisco.
