Android 2.2 Can`t Match iOS 4 Features: 10 Reasons Why - Mobile and Wireless News & Reviews
all i can say is ....wow.
Another one of these factless articles of "10 reasons why [insert something] will [something]". I lol'd the whole time. Would read again.
i sure hope nobody paid that guy to jot that garbage down
Ignorant people. Ignorant!
what is worse.. there will be newbies that will believe this
Anyone with a Android phone know that article is bs.
That is a horrible article.
I sure can't wait until Google catches up and gives Android multitasking and folders.
I sure can't wait until google catches up and provides one platform for developers to make apps. That way, I know that when I download an app from the market, I don't have to worry that the developer was making sure that it works on the Incredible or the X and just hope it works on the D2.
Wow..... just wow
I can certainly tell you haven't developed for Android...
Reasons 1-4 were just funny and proved the author has never touched an Android phone.
Reasons 6-9 were valid, but the rest was just funny.
Is that coming in Honeycomb or Icecream? LOL
I wonder how much that guy gets paid to verbally suck off Steve Jobs and Apple? Sounds like the announcer blowingthe giants at the game five world series.
6. Responsiveness? I played with the Droid X, and iOS 4 has nothing on it. Tie at best.
7. Too many variations? I really don't think so. I really think that people aren't having a problem with Android variations. In fact, with all of it's variations, almost as high a percentage would buy Android again, as would buy iPhone again. Too many choices just doesn't seem like a big drawback to me.
8. App Store? If you need to do something, there is an App in the market. There may not be as many, but you aren't going to look through them all... EVER in either set, so what does it matter?
9. I have never wanted a song on Amazon that I couldn't find. Maybe others have difficulties getting music from Amazon... but I haven't. Plus we are FAR more integrated with Amazon (directly to phone) than the iPhone is with iTunes (sync through iTunes software).
10. Tablet issue... let's revisit this after I get hands on with the Galaxy Tab.
If we are talking iPhone 4, then yes, the integrated GPU does provide a smooth flowing responsive interface. When compared to older Android devices, sure it looks great, but compare the performance of last years Android to a 3G running iOS 4 ... that is if you can find anyone who hasn't reverted back to iOS 3. On the newer Android handsets, there are not quite as optimized, but it is a marginal win for Apple.
Exactly. To the average consumer HTC's SenseUI is Android as is MotoBlur or TouchWiz. And if they don't like it, they can either change their launcher or get another phone. Apple calls it "fragmentation", Consumers call it choice. Developers call it opportunity.
Agreed. As long as the app you want is there, it doesn't matter if there are 25 apps or 3 million in the App store or the market. What Android needs isn't so much more apps, but a better way to find/sort them.
I would categorize it more as "iTunes captivity".
Personally, I think the hardware vendors are jumping the gun and are going to shoot themselves int he foot on this one. While I have nothing against a 7" tablet vs. a 10", they've got to make the price point more attractive and optimize Android for tablet use FIRST. I'd pay $250 for a tablet. I won't pay $600.
Don Reisinger owes me a cleaning bill. I spit out my coffee all over my shirt, I laughed so hard.
Too bad there doesn't seem to be a fact-checker app in the app store.
I just had to tweet the guy ... I just had to.
I am going to call them iWeek now.
They have been running a spat of articles the last few months all pro Apple and anti Android.
It does not help that when I went to read it there was an Apple ad on the top of the screen.
I disagree. I've played with both, and the new Android phones are just as snappy as the iPhone 4.
As of November 1st 77% of all Android phones in operation are using either 2.1 or 2.2.

Considering how many older iPhones are still operating, I would say that neither side wins in the fragmentation department.
There are a few I've purchased, but I'm listening to Pandora right now.
As far as apps. Every phone you have with your google account has access to every App you have ever bought. That's not the same thing as the iPhone app being available to every iPhone you own, but it's darn close...
Regardless the point on the site was media related, not iTunes App related.
seriously? The new Android phones blow away the older iPhones. Seriously, new Android phones versus new iPhone. Tied.
I absolutely agree... I need a better way to find the app I want.
Maybe, but you have to consider what the device CAN do. If you buy an iPad, it's severely limited compared to the Galaxy Tab. To be able to do what the Galaxy Tab can, you are going to spend a couple hundred more on accessories.
I know it was media related, which in reality has no advantage. My point was just that it is easier for a family to share apps on iPhones. I don't want my gmail account on my wife's and daughter's phone. We all have our own email account
*Just incase anyone was confused by my comments, I have no plans on going back to iOS right now, I am loving Android, I just want an android phone without a manufacturer screwing up the OS
Ah, I see. I'm not putting my account on my wife's phone either, but it's a start, I guess. I really don't see how Google would identify all the phones you share in your family.
