This infographic was submitted by and acts as a time line showcasing the evolution of mobile operating systems. Upon submitting this infographic, the folks at XCubeLabs had the following to say:

An infographic which clearly illustrates how the commercial mobile operating systems has grown over time. From the first commercial Palm OS to the latest Android 3.0 Honeycomb the mobile operating system world has gathered many features which makes computing faster and smarter. Palm was the first mobile Operating System to be launched commercially right back in 1996 followed by Windows Pocket PC 2000. The mobile OS technology slowly gained traction from their on but was the market was still away from total maturity until Apple launched the revolutionary iPhone in 2007. Now the mobile market share is split between Symbian, Android and iPhone in huge numbers with windows, palm and blackberry fighting for the fourth spot.

This infographic is OK at best. It’s incredibly hard to read because there is not enough contrast in colors. There’s also not any real data being visualized. Honestly, time line infographics are not easy. They require a clean design and the ability to organize a great deal of information. They are often pretty text heavy, so it’s important to come up with a good amount of data, facts, and figures to break up all the text. This infographic has a lot of dead space in the top half, which could have been fixed with charts and graphs about mobile operating systems. That small addition would greatly improve the infographic.
