    One of the main points in any Android vs. iPhone argument is the "seemless Google Integration." But what does this really mean?

    Google obviously has many services, Gmail, Calendar, Contacts, Maps/Navigation, Google Goggles, etc., but what about these things makes them "built" into Android phones?

    Most of these services are either available or will be available for the iPhone, so what is so unique about Google's services on Android phones?

    the phone just works with all Google products without issue, and each product works with the other products on the phone. Google Maps and Navigation doesn't exist even closely on iPhone (in fact, I think some app "skooler" or something like that, was just released this week, we've had it forever now! [forever in tech terms of course])

    And, again, it's the way each one integrates with the others. Contacts exists on the phone, just as they do on the web, those contacts can be linked to Google Maps and a Calendar entry.....each service has a separate function but they all work as one.

    And it integrates seamlessly into the phone dialer.
