Yeah, I did some research and found that it was being hotly debated. I hope it really does, and it's not all a lizard man hollow moon conspiracy to make me think I've found the perfect little device, and then not get my tasty GPS. Ah well, knowing myself, I'll say "Yeah, but quad cores are coming out soon... " and be forever waiting. I wonder if they have medicine for my condition?

Excellent and insightful post.
To be honest, I was expecting a WHOLE lot less, app-wise, when I got my Droid 2 Global. I'm still surprised when I can say "you know, I wish my phone would randomize the ring tone and notification tone...", and then do a quick search and find a whole bunch of applications that do exactly that, some for free even.

Well, good luck with the iPad, mate!

You misunderstand. I have no problem with the quantity of android PHONE apps. I find all I need on my captivate. However, tablet apps are a different story. The first twitter app just came out. There are like 3 RSS apps. There are no ebooks app for people with their own content. These are basic apps. There are very few choices, unless you use the phone version. I'm talking tablet apps only.

Ahhh! I assumed that Android would allow phone apps to be run on tablets in a similar way that iPhone apps can be run on the iPad, which hasn't seem to be that bad. Is it really that much worse on an Android-based tablet? Strange!

Well, they do allow you to run phone apps, and they do it much better than the iPad (no pixel doubling), but the experience is still not nearly as good as a dedicated tablet app. I am still hoping that honeycomb apps pick up soon. I really am more excited about the android possibilities.

Excellent, and I agree indeed. Although I'd much rather developers take into account the possibility of drastic different screen sizes, although I do not know how feasible that could be as per the functions allotted.
