The concept of Android OS giving the user more freedom is great but the implementation fails. They need to focus on quality of operation rather than quantity.
Android people slam the iPhone for its closed OS but its faster and works with much less issues.
Actually most of us accept it as last year's (maybe 2-3) technology, poor battery life, a tiny screen and you have to install App A to make App B work so that App C can almost work, but then you have to jailbreak it, and then save your hush's, and then have a developer make a website for App A to finally work. But if you change computers, you have to go through the process all over again.
We really don't mind the iphone, it's just like picking up a simon PDA and going... yup, it's greyscale, yup it's snappy, yup it appears to work for that task. To each their own!
I will add that any iphone I had has been more buggy than any android device that I have run, stock to stock.
People actually still use bookface? I'm barely using it over the new alternatives today.
