I love the Android platform. It is far from perfect (what is?), but I cannot see myself even considering anything else for the time being. All this said, I am amazed by the explosion of Android popularity over the past few years. Why, do you ask? I just feel as though the platform is pretty difficult for the average user and it takes a good amount of tweaking and setting up to really get a smooth phone. Of course I say this as an ex-Linux geek, so maybe this is all driven by my need to make sure everything runs a certain way. It's just that iProducts are so simple and straightforward. Ditto for the Blackberry. But when I see someone with an Android, I stop and think, "does this person actually realize how capable that device in their hands is? Do they have apps besides Facebook and the NY Times?" lol I should have a better opinion of my species!
