They should have had their minds changed since at least Froyo.

I don't get all these arguments... People buy what they like, either it be iphone or android or others. Doesn't matter which one is better, if everyone bought the "superior product" everyone would have the same phone. People choose their phones by their looks, simplicity, popularity, hardware, etc. Prefering a phone over one other because it has a good look or it's more popular doesn't make anyone a "sheep", just someone with different tastes. Not everyone cares which phone is 4.56% faster...

Saying that it isn't about hardware power isn't necessarily saying that Android is unusable...

A lot of people don't care about the specs of their phone. If it feels responsive and does exactly what they want it to, that's good enough for them. Which in many cases is probably true. Someone who uses their phone for say, call/text, music, and Angry Birds isn't going to care if their phone isn't the technological king of the mountain.

Quite honestly, a lot of people here are probably the same, on both sides. If the next iPhone came out and was the most powerful phone in existence, I bet most Android users would stick with Android because they prefer the OS.

PC's yeah, phones not that much.
Also, I didn't mean that's how I choose my phones, was just saying that I can see who does it, and I got nothing against it smile.gif

You've been saying that for a year. How many phones officially have that now? Honest question.

We don't even need ICS. Android is just all around better than iOS.

Sounds like ICS is going to be pretty good, from the Techradar review:
Quote:
The other new addition is the dock at the bottom of the screen - this stays on every home screen, and like iOS can be altered to contain the applications you like to tap away at the most. Folders are more iOS-like too, with users given the ability to drag and drop icons on top of one another from the home screen to create bundles of apps which you can simply rename. Given Apple's ire about Google 'stealing' certain elements of its UI, we can't help but think this will create a little more angst down on Infinite Loop.
Quote:
Overall, we love what Google has done with the Ice Cream Sandwich UI. It's nothing mind-blowing, but the little touches here and there will add to user delight, and that's what's needed to chip away at those that are dyed-in-the-wool iPhone users.


ICS just isn't being made available apparently, unless you want a Galaxy Nexus.


PCWORLD had this to say:
Quote:
Google first introduced Ice Cream Sandwich back in October, but Google didn't release it to developers until the Galaxy Nexus shipped in Europe a month later. Many phone manufactures made promises to release Ice Cream Sandwich updates for their their then-current line-up of phones that would roll out shortly after Ice Cream Sandwich launched. As of this writing, only the Nexus S (a handset that Samsung developed in conjunction with Google) has gotten an update for Ice Cream Sandwich.

CES brought more promises, but Ice Cream Sandwich phones were few and far between. Almost all of the new phones coming to US carriers in 2012 will ship with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). These aren’t devices that are coming in the next few weeks, mind you; Many of them won’t make their way into stores until around the middle of 2012. That means if you want the latest version of Android--and all the improvements and bug fixes it brings along--you’ll either have to track down a Galaxy Nexus or Nexus S, or hope that your current phone gets the update.
