My HTC Hero, for example, came with SprintTV, NascarTV, and some other useless bloatware that I can't remember.
Yep the Nexus S is what all Android phones should be like .

None of this bloatware crap slowing down the phone .

iPhone is overhyped. I am not saying it is a bad phone. It is a good phone. iPhone makes a lot of press, but it is no way revolutionary considering the attention it gets.

Sure overhyped but the product its self is solid and way too many people on OCN bash it .

From a developer's point of view, one device is superior. When making a app, you have one CPU, one screen resolution, one size of RAM, etc. to code for. It makes apps highly optimized for the hardware.

When making an app for Android, you have to account for many different screen resolutions (for example), which can make it challenging when making simple things like buttons or pictures in the app. "Hmm, this will fit on a Droid X's screen, but how about an Evo Shift"

A company having one device at a time isn't a bad thing. Plus, to most consumers it doesn't matter.

To answer the question in one word:

Yes.


Iphone 4, Ipad 2, all these frivolous "upgrades" apple does to keep knew products on the market are a waste of money. I am an apple user through and through, but I rolled my eyes when the Iphone 4 came out, just like I did at the Ipad 2, and many other refreshes they have done to keep themselves profitable.

How could you roll your eyes when the iPhone 4 came out when it was a huge upgrade in comparison to the iPhone 3G to 3Gs? It upgraded everything across the board quite drastically.

I actually helped make apps for android and I can tell you it is ten time easier to develop for android.

true accounting for all models is difficult, however it is still better to deal with that than the garbage hoops I had to jump through to try and develop on my 3GS. Plus, android has software so regular people can develop easy apps for the phone.

The goal of a OS/phone should not be lets worry about the dev's but, lets worry about giving customers the option to have a different phone if they want.

No choices for apple, tons of choices for android.

When it came out, I sort of rolled my eyes because they didn't keep the classic iPhone design. Since then, the glass/aluminum design grew on me.
