Well, if it keeps up with all the sweet and fatty foods theme it is bound to grow a lot - and become overweight.

Tend to think they are underestimating the impact/swing iPhone on Verizon will have ...

interesting. i was seriously expecting android developers to battle more with fragmentation.
that said, volume doesn't always translate into profit... i still forsee the nibbled pome laughing all the way to the bank for a while to come.

Honeycomb makes iOS look like Windows 3.1 against Windows 7.

No restrictions wrt hardware, especially GPUs (I'm looking at you, Windows Phone 7) will ensure that Android will always be miles ahead.

too many people are locked into AT&T contracts
The threat is not so much AT&T subscribers jumping ship to Verizon, but rather that their slightly larger existing base now has the choice of an iPhone 4 when renewing.

Previously if they wanted a (good) high-end smartphone on Verizon's CDMA EV-DO network, the only choices were Android or Blackberry based.

Ja, and the At&T iPhones won't work on the Verizon network. They would have to buy new iPhones. Verizon uses a different technology.

No surprises there. Android is simply the best. Nothing else comes close.

Agreed. My move from Symbian was extremely satisfying. Found it easy to work. Love the variety of applications.

Obviously you have never worked on an Apple device. iOS is by a large margin the best mobile operating system available. Android would take up second place. Android is a pretty decent system, at least much better than Windows Mobile and Symbian. The problem with Andriod is that it is way too fractured. Their apps store is also not comparable to the Apple App store. For example their Skype application sounds like a robot and they don't have video calling yet. Next time before you makes such sweeping statements, think and get your facts right. You should also substantiate your statements otherwise it is worthless.

LOL....you just made my day! I think you wanted to say "fragmented". :)

The only reason why Android is "fragmented", is because manufacturers insist on skinning Android with their own custom UI.

If you have a "pure" Android phone, like the Nexus One or Nexus S, you'll get the update the moment Google releases it.

*iOS looks old & tired next to Android 2.3 & 3.0 .

These so called "best smartphones OSes" can't even match the functionality you get from old school Symbian. What a bunch of hot air.

Bwaahahaha. Android > iOS. Live with it.

Lol. You two need to get over it and just accept the truth. Android > everything.
