Thought I might add something here...
I totally hear you. My wife is jealous of iPhone users' ability to buy a bedazzled case when I can't seem to find one for the Nexus you sold me for her. I get your frustration.
Here is my take, which in some way echoes some of the above info:
With Android we have freedom; we have choice. And because Android is Linux, I will share this...
...About a year ago my Toshiba Windows Vista laptop (Family Computer BTW) was dying. Not a single adult website was ever viewed on that thing and somehow this piece of junk somehow managed to pick up a virus. I found the culprit and killed it...Culprit: Windows. What did I do? I backed up the photos of my baby and music and whatnot and installed Ubuntu 11.10....what a beautiful day that was. And the Kodak printer that has no Company Sanctioned support for Linux around Network/WiFi printing...no problem!!! I made it work using command line and some files provided by the Open Source Community! Thank you Google and Open Source!
For the record, I have ZERO issues with my phone and computer talking to each other. I send all files between the two devices using Android Device Bridge (ADB).
Bottom line is that you have a choice. And no one here would fault you if iOS became that choice. We would miss you, of course. And I am not suggesting you move away from an open set of options! (Please don't bail on us bro!) I know that you have been through a lot recently with Android; hopefully something I have said resonates with you my friend.
