Android should create a commercial similar to Apple's "there's an app for that", named "there's a phone for that. You want a android phone with or without a QWERTY keyboard, there's a phone for that, You want a android phone on any carrier you want to choose, there's a phone for that. Big Screen/small screen/ low end/ high end.. whatever you are looking for.. there's an android phone for that.... IMO, that is what makes android #1.. choices and freedom to do whatever I want to my phone easily

That would be a dope commercial. I think that the fact that android is software and not hardware made by a bunch of different manufacturers would make that hard to do, but that commercial would be that sh*t that makes your soul burn slow.

Never liked Apple products, not saying they are bad I just never liked them. I have a torch and have no problems with it. Would like to get an android phone and get back into flashing custom roms and stuff like that, but I dont know if I could go without BBM.

And the main reason why Apple computers don't get viruses is because Windows has a much higher user base than Apple. When people create viruses they want to fu*k with the most possible people so they create them to run rampant in Windows based computers. Also virus makers are more familiar with the Windows operating system, the tools that have been created to create viruses, spy-ware and other malicious software are native to the Windows.

If Apple were to take over the market as far as OS's go they would have just as many viruses as Windows has. Though the Apple OS is based off the "Unix kernel" and just upgraded to Mac OS X, which despite is age, Unix is considered one of the most secure operating system ever.

There is no comparison. Android OS is better than IOS point blank period. Anybody that knows anything about how both operating systems work and what can or cannot be done with them would know that Android OS beats the sh*t out of IOS. The fact that Andriod OS is open source allows for so many customizations as well.

As for phones, the IPhone and IPad are both beaten by the higher end Android OS phones and tablets. The majority of the people who still use the IPhone and IPad only have it because Apple made it and it is a status symbol for them.

The one thing that Apple does have going for them is the ignorance of their consumer base. Their customers, for the most part, want something that is very simple and does not have a lot of options. Too many options confuse a lot of consumers. Android OS shines because of the endless options. Those that want few options will be very reluctant to leave their limited Iphones for an Android Phone because of this.

As far as the apps difference...you can pretty much find most of the stuff on the Android Market as you can on Apple's App Store. Android has plenty of apps to offer. The Android Market has grown tremendously and is only going to get bigger.

So wanting something simple is ignorant? Wow. That's a ridiculous notion. The general population is going to want something that is easy to use, they are not like a lot of the people in this section or BX for that matter. It's not like the Android OS is rocket science, it's just a matter of what you are willing to do. Customizing your phone is fun as hell to do, but I know several people with android phones that are still running the stock rom and have done nothing but minimal changes. I agree with the fact that Android has better hardware and software, but the rest of that sh*t was.......

I'm starting to think that a lot of the older crowd that want a "cool" phone with ease of use rock an iPhone and the twenty something crowd with more time and patience to fool around with their phone have started to gravitate to Android. I just came back from Vegas and a lot of the 30 and up crowd seemed to have iPhones, and the younger crowd had Anroid devices. Apple's selling point is not ignorance, it's apps and ease of use. Android still doesn't have sh*t along the line of games and cell phone games are big business. I know plenty of iOS device owners who have conceded that android is better but refuse to switch because they are comfortable with an iPhone, they have concerns about battery life, and they just don't need any of the extra sh*t that android offers.

Ignorance is not the same as stupidity. Ignorance means lack of knowledge. In this case lack of computer knowledge. The younger crowd are more used to using computers and such which is why they prefer the Android OS. I know plenty of people who own Iphones and find Android phones too complex. It is because they lack the computer skills of today's youth. I am not young by the way. I did grow up around computers though.

I did not mean to offend you, but I stand by my statements. Most people are ignorant to a lot of things and rather not have to deal with them at all. They want an easy button to handle everything and makes things very simple. That is a fact. Look at all the consumer products out there.

People today rather buy a simpler product over a more complex product. Even if the more complex product is better all around.

If you prefer I can refer to Iphone's base as "Casual Phone Users". It is similar to how the Wii has had great success with inferior hardware and software. Nintendo created a system that is easy too use and made specifically for those who are ignorant to gaming. Aimed toward the "Casual Gamer".

As for the games. Android does have a lot of games, yes it is lacking in some, but more and more games are being released for Android OS. And if you are that serious about games, you should own a DS or PSP. Why would your phone purchase come down to games?

In my honest opinion, the only thing a iphone has over android is the seamless ipod component. I don't use any apps except my banks, tetris, and angry birds. Thats it.
Real talk.

iPhone is k!lling it in the peripheral market but I don't even use a phone case so why would I care about all that extra plastic and junk? Hardware and software for Android > plastic / silicone attachments. Y'all talk about how s3xy the iPhone is then proceed to throw it in a bulletproof glass box cause the thing is fragile as hell.

iPhone owners make no sense to me, but if you want to pay more for less functions and a higher chance to get milked for more of your dollars then be my guest

.... every dog has its day...especially if its on every carrier
Apple has itself to blame for that. I would have never known how good Android OS was if it wasn't for the Iphone only being available for AT&T. After owning my first Android phone (Mytouch 3g), I never would leave the platform for an Iphone. Apple should have never signed that exclusive deal. IMO, Apple really f*cked up with that one.

This, Apple screwed Apple, and now their sheep are

Like Apple aint have the chance to go to every carrier, put their software on to other peoples hardware, and make substantial improvements to their OS, etc...dudes is acting like Google's cheating

the thing that bothers me about android owners not the os but the owners is that they act like owning an android device makes your smarter or some sh*t........ people own and spend money on what they want and alot of people spend money on bullsh*t! i've played with android devices and was on the ropes about getting the atrix, but why would i? its not that nice to make me wanna switch over for my jailbroken iphone is about what and what with it minus dual core and 4g and wdf needs 4g? 3g is plenty fast for me.
