KaiOS: Don't Write Down Feature Phones Just Yet

When discussing the phone market, people tend to throw around the names of major manufacturers like Apple, Samsung, and Huawei, along with the two major mobile operating systems that have effectively divided the smartphone market among themselves: iOS and Android. The global mobile phone market is more than just smartphones, though: there are still billions of people out there who don't use smartphones. The feature phone market is still huge - there are many emerging markets where the affordability of the feature phones still beats the smartphones' versatility when it comes to buying decisions. This doesn't mean, though, that feature phone users will have to forfeit the benefits of smarter operating systems and mobile broadband. There is a platform that helps them navigate the web, follow their friends on social networks, keep in touch with them on various messaging services, even play games and explore the best online casinos to win money on the internet. The platform is called KaiOS, and it is the second most-used mobile operating system in India today.
