Android 2.2 can’t match iOS 4 features: 10 reasons why #Humor

Are you a fan of our Facebook page? I’ve been sharing other stories over there about the mobile industry that I find interesting and just came across this piece on eWeek titled Android 2.2 Can`t Match iOS 4 Features: 10 Reasons Why. I got a good laugh from it and our Facebook fans thoroughly enjoyed it, so I thought I would share it with our larger audience. 10 reasons why after the jump.

Android 2.2 Can`t Match iOS 4 Features: 10 Reasons Why by Don Reisinger of eWeek

1. Google isn’t so big on software

Google’s real plan with Android is to dominate the mobile advertising space. It fully realizes that the best way to achieve that goal is by doing whatever it can to capitalize on the desire for touch-screen smartphones with the help of Android. That’s precisely why Google offers its operating system for free. But due to that focus on eventual mobile advertising dominance, Google falls short compared to Apple on software design.

2. Apple understands consumers

Apple understands what consumers want and how they will use a particular product. That comes through in all the products the company sells, including its iOS platform. Google, on the other hand, doesn’t seem to understand consumers as well as it could. It’s certainly doing a better job than most companies, but it still has a long way to go to match Apple. In fact, Google’s consumer understanding seems to be more Microsoft-like than Apple-like. And that could be a problem — especially for its operating system–going forward.

3. Multitasking

Multitasking on iOS is a key reason why Apple has enjoyed such success in the mobile market as of late. For years, consumers were hoping for true multitasking. But for years, the company made no promises. But in iOS 4, multitasking is running on the iPhone. Because of that, Google has a long way to go to match anything Apple is currently offering.

4. Folders make it all OK

Apple’s iOS platform is better than Android 2.2 for several major reasons. But one of the minor things that consumers should think about is Apple’s operating system’s folder support. With little effort, consumers can quickly create folders, lump similar programs together, and more. It provides a rewarding experience. And it’s something that Google has a long way to go on in order to catch up.

5. Ease of use must come into play

In any evaluation between two operating systems, ease of use must play a role. After all, if a particular operating system is easier to use for the average consumer than another, it should get the nod. In this case, iOS 4 easily gets the nod. Apple’s operating system is simply easier to use. And it doesn’t suffer from the strange quirks that arise on Android due to vendors trying to tailor the user experience to their own products.

6. Responsiveness

One of the main issues with Android 2.2 is that the software doesn’t respond as effectively as it should to the user when compared to iOS. Does that mean there is a responsiveness issue with Android 2.2? Absolutely not. In fact, compared to other operating systems, it holds up quite well. But Apple’s platform is different. It’s just that iOS simply provides more responsiveness when users interact with it. It could be extremely difficult for Google to catch up anytime soon.

7. Too many variations

Because Android is an open platform, vendors that get their hands on the operating system can change it however they see fit. That openness creates an environment across the Android ecosystem that loses uniformity and provides variations of the Android operating system on different phones. The result is sometimes spotty performance that must be taken into account when evaluating differences between iOS and Android.

8. Apple’s App Store

Apple’s App Store is integral to the success of iOS 4. With hundreds of thousands of applications, Apple’s marketplace is the best place to find programs that appeal to both consumers and enterprise customers. Admittedly, Google’s Android Market has been growing at a rapid rate, but it has a long way to go to match Apple’s store.

9. iTunes integration

Whenever users pick up an iOS-based device, they can access iTunes from the product. That’s extremely important. It provides them with an end-to-end entertainment experience that isn’t so readily available on Android. After all, iTunes is the world’s top music store. If only Apple’s products have access to it, few could say Google’s offering can best Apple’s.

10. The tablet issue

Google has said that Android 2.2 is not designed for tablets. Apple doesn’t have that issue with iOS 4. Currently, iOS 3 is running on the iPad. But this month, Apple plans to offer iOS 4 integration with its tablet. When that happens, the company will prove that its operating system is the best choice for just about anyone trying to go mobile. Then the onus will be on Google to respond.

Update: Maybe the joke’s on us. Here is another article from Don that was published earlier this year: Google Android OS Secrets to Success: 10 Reasons It`s Now on Top It even has a slideshow!

    I agree with some of those, but…. really? Folders and multitasking?
    Also, I find it kind of bothersome that every paragraph ends with almost the exact same sentence.

    • http://Website Richie681

      Here’s my reply to that author. He is the epitomy of fail in internet “journalism”
      I really hope this article was written as a joke. I really do. If not, you really need to do at least a little research before writing an article. eWeek should really rethink using you as a writer.

      1:Google is THE software company. Android is preferred over iOS by a pretty big margin currently, Chrome is quickly climbing up in the Browser game while Safari is more of an inside joke. Google does software extremely well. So well, that in most of the arenas they’ve been in, they’ve come out on top, or close to it.

      2:For not understanding customers, they seem to have a lot of users for nearly all of their software ventures. Gmail, Search, Android, etc.

      3:This is where you go way out on left field, and leave me to think you’ve never actually used an Android device. Multitasking? Really? Android has had multitasking since day 1. And REAL multitasking, not the spotty version Apple uses. I can have multiple apps open and doing tasks, regardless of what they do.

      4:Again, you should really pick up an Android phone before you write an article on them. Folders, like multitasking, has been an Android staple since the beginning.

      5:Ease of Use? Android is extremely easy to use. Hell, my Mother can use it, and she knows absolutely nothing about technology or even the internet. If you have been attached to Steve Jobs’ nutsack(iPhone) then of course it will take some getting used too. They’re different approaches, but neither are hard to understand.

      6:Responsiveness? My Droid X is worlds more responsive on 2.2 than my Bosses iPhone4. Even he says so. Newer Android devices are extremely responsive.

      7:Variations. There’s variation in iOS too. What OS version is the original iPhone on? Why is that? Hardware limitations. Older Android devices are on older Android versions. Why? HARDWARE LIMITATIONS! There’s a difference between this fragmented variation you try and prove and choice. Choice. Choice! If I want a hardware keyboard, I can have one. If I want a bigger screen, I can have it. If I want *insert newest technological buzzword*, then I can either have it, or wait a couple weeks and there will likely be an Android phone with it on it.

      8:LOL App Store. Hundreds of Thousands of apps. Yes the Apple App store has Googles Android Market beat in terms of sheer numbers. Numbers aren’t everything. How many fart apps? I’ll take Androids slimmed down market for the time being.

      9:iTunes integration. No Thank you. I’ll take the ability to grab music/photos/videos off any computer I want, rather than having it tied to a single computer. This is probably one of my biggest pet peeves about iPhones iTunes integration. I have multiple computers I use for diffent times(Laptop/Desktop/Work), so everytime I plugged in my i-Device in a computer it wasn’t set up for, it’d get wiped. Android doesn’t have that issue. If there’s a file I want from my desktop, I can plug in and move it to the SD card, THEN, I can go to my laptop and get another file without wiping my device. Love it.

      10:Samsung Galaxy Tab. Wonderful device that uses Android 2.2. Yes Google said 2.2 wasn’t optimized for tablets. That doesn’t mean it’s not usable.

      Anyways, I laughed quite a bit reading the article. If anyone wants to follow me on twitter it’s @Richie681. We can argue Android vs iOS all day.

        • Joel

          lol yep! thats the spirit indeed. I can understand how some of those things said may have been true IN THE PAST and when compared to CERTAIN DEVICES…but when you pit the iOS against today’s top androids like the Droid X, Evo, hell even the Galaxy line…then you’ll be able to see why 99% of that post is inaccurate.

          • AndMac

            As a former iPhone user, I can dispute many of the eweek claims, but there are also a few truths in there.

            I don’t have much experience with 2.2 (I have a Vibrant now, international Galaxy S before…,) but the UI of iOS is overall more elegant and consistent than Android. Gingerbread is supposed to dramatically change Android’s UI and I really, really look forward to it. But I am not holding my breath that the Vibrant will get it.

            Which leads me to my biggest disappointment with Android: it’s locked as tight as the iPhone.

            I used to be annoyed at having to jailbreak my iPhone to get tethering. But I was surprised to find that I had to root my Galaxy S too. (They are both as easy to do, but after all is done, MiFi on the iPhone is much more reliable than any of the Android tethering apps I’ve tried.)

            But Android is supposed to be open. Yet I still don’t have Froyo and no Flash on my Vibrant, even though Google officially released it months ago, and it’s even out for the Galaxy S. Ah, it’s the drivers, stupid, and if Samsung doesn’t give them them to you, all this open talk is worthless.

            Many are saying the Vibrant and the Galaxy S will never officially get Gingerbread, even though the hardware supports it, because Samsung is likely to EOL the Galaxy S and never do an official Gingerbread for it. I don’t want to believe it, but the key idea here is that Android updates should not be held hostage by the manufacturers.

            Other than that, there are a myriad small and not so small annoyances I’ve experienced with my Samsungs:

            OTA updating seems buggier than it should be, and Samsungs’ Kies is one of the most finicky pieces of software I’ve ever experienced.

            GPS is still funky.

            Battery life just sucks compared to the iPhone, with or without the various hacks and using SetCPU.

            I might start over when Gingerbread comes out….

        I totally agree with what you say spot on. I was just about to write a similar worded reply. I don’t think ‘Taylor Wimberly’ has ever used an Android phone before because how can someone not know Android supports multitasking and folders unless they haven’t used it. They’ve been part of Android from day 1.

        the biggest reason android is “preferred” is because of price and one of the lamest excuse ever ive heard is “I wont get an iPhone because everybody’s got one”. as a software platform android is not as good as iOs

      Oh yeah, this “list” sucks! Apple fanboyism at its best

      • Shantanu

        Not that I care but since when did citing a source gave you the permission the copy paste the full article verbatim?
        Especially when the source explicitly forbids it..

      • http://Website milrtime83

        I guess I’ll risk getting down ranked as well…

        Citing your source does not mean you can just copy/paste someone else’s article in it’s entirety. Maybe if you were providing a counter point to each individual argument, but a simple “follow us on facebook because I share stores like this” isn’t anything most people would call useful or original commentary.

        • Shantanu

          lol yeah..what can I say.. The most positive rating a comment has got is like 30-40 and my comment got 110 negatives for pointing out the correct thing :P
          anyways..good to know there are at least a couple of folks who know what’s right.. meet you in the downvote oblivion soon :P

    • http://Website Darshan

      For what it’s worth, you’re absolutely correct, and I have no idea why you were voted down at all, let alone so much. The article is quite funny, but that’s beside the point: you can’t just copy an entire copyrighted article and pretend it’s okay because you cited the source. Taylor really should know better.

    • http://Website some internet dude

      He posted it here because this article is what you write when your in comedy, or writing from an insane asylum.

  • Yogarine

    Not really sure what there is to laugh about this. All points except point 3. sound like valid reasons to me. And laughing about issues that objective users or well-informed outsiders will find valid can only mean one thing: fanboyism. Fanboyism is dangerous, watch out with that.

    Of course, could be you’re being cynical/satirical in some weird sense, if that’s so then I don’t get it.

    I own both a G1 and an Xperia X10 right now, but these are exactly the points that will probably have be buy an iPhone as my next phone.

    • Johnny

      ::rolls eyes:: Seriously give me a break bro. Valid points??! He is saying you can’t multi task on Android?? Freaking press and hold HOME

      • http://Website martin

        press and hold home does not show you currently running apps, it shows you the last X programs you launched.

        however i agree his points on folders and multitasking are goddamn ignorant i beg to wonder if the eweek guy has ever used an android phone.

        • Dean Williams

          I’m sure he has. It was a G1 running 1.0. Obviously, he knows his stuff!

        • http://Website mikaeldalc

          Well, on my Samsung Vibrant, I press n hold HOME and it brings up last used and task manager lol.. but its ok, I still luv u.

    • http://Website johnny b

      See this is what irritates me. People buy phones like the xperia10 ,ally,devour ect. And think man this phone sucks android blows wtf I’m buying an iPhone. And they are right. But before bashing android buy a real gosh dam android phone. Like a Droid 1 or 2 a nexus one a Droid X or incredible just to name a few high end badass android phones. Google tries to offer cheap android phones that don’t give full credit to the android os. Good and bad I just wish people would realize when they buy a cheap shit phone 9 times outa 10 they are getting a cheap shit phone. Don’t get me wrong the iPhone is by all means a great phone undoubtedly but I think both OS’s are quite equal. Just my opinion though. My suggestion though buy a real fckin android phone e before bashing bro.

    Wow is all I can say. How did that article even get published??! Every single thing he said was beyond ridiculous.

    I’m curious as to whether Mr. Reisinger has ever actually used Android. I can create folders. I can multitask. In fact, I didn’t have to wait a full three years after the product was released before I was able to do both of those things.

    He’s correct in that Google isn’t so big on software, mainly because Google is not a software company, and only has two software products (Android, Chromium).

    As for understanding consumers, Chrome went from nothing to third place in just a couple years, yet Safari has been lagging behind and barely registers on the list of browsers. Its search engine is the only one that really matters to people. Its phone ecosystem went from nothing to the fastest growing in less than two years. I’d say Google must understand something about consumers for those things to happen.

    As for iTunes, I don’t think I know anyone who doesn’t complain frequently about how bad it is.

    • http://Website ncb1397

      Google is a software company. All their products are software running on smartphones, desktops, or servers. They usually gain revenue by embedding ads that users can click when people use said software. It is similar to how a Android developer might make a game for free (like Angry Birds) but put ads in it for ad based revenue.

  • http://Website dudeki

    Maybe we DONT WANT iTunes integration. And even if we did, android users can use doubletwist that can also synch songs between smartphones and desktop.

    Android has had multitasking in its initial release and iOS users had to wait till iOS 4 for that!

    There are android apps that allow for folder creation!

    And finally stats have shown that android 2.2 pwns iOS 4 in terms of speed and responsiveness.

    Im not fanboying, just telling the truth.

  • http://Website senaia

    1. Yea google isn’t so big on software, but at least Android works mostly how the user wants it to. Ios… not so much
    2. Apple understands money.
    3. Multi tasking… this made me laugh. I got my g1 a week before cupcake and could multi task fine. Around 12 months later, probably more, Ios got multi tasking…
    4. See above point and replace multi task with folder organisation
    5. Android probably easiest to use mobile software ever. To make a point…. how do I set the new A7X single as my ringtone on Ios without downloading an app first?
    6. Ok responsiveness I’ll agree with but only because I’ve never had to correct myself when typing on ios. I do sometimes have to correct mistakes with Android.
    7. I’ll also agree with software variations to a degree. Networks install an awful lot of bloatware to Android devices which can’t be removed without root. Ios on the other hand isn’t without its variations. The original iPhone is still on 3.1.3 while other phones are heading rapidly towards 4.2. Yes, this is due to hardware limitations, but so is the majority of Android variations.
    8. Apples app store is a joke. Yes it has a lot of apps, but do we really need 6000 fart boards? and who would buy an app that costs over $200?
    9. Itunes integration… yea its a big popular store, but I’ve never used it so won’t comment
    10. I’m not a fan on tablets, especially those based on the same software as a mobile phone or media device. They’re just not portable enough often requiring a case or bag… not practical in both ios or Android in my opinion but that’s just me

    • http://Website Sam

      What are you talking about in point 7??? The original Iphone is stocked at 3.1.3 as the G1 is on 1.6 and the G1 have more Hardware than the original Iphone

        • http://Website Sam

          Yes I know, but I’m saying original with no root, With root a G1 its better than many phones in the market

  • http://Website Andy

    Some of the points may be valid here – however they are due to Apple locking down their system to only one of everything. If you don’t like the design of the iPhone its tough, you have to have a candybar. If you don’t want to use itunes, again its tough, only way to use the music. Just because they fel out with Adobe, users now suffer from no flash.
    Android doesn’t link to iTunes because apple wont let it, same with any other system that may want to use iTunes. Is a real shame, because apple does a lot of things great, but locks things down too tight, sues everyone, over everything and prices things too high.

    At least android gives you a choice, and many of what other manufacturers/service providers add, is to benefit and compliment the system. By being an open platform, google has enabled people to make apps much easier to create and has let people use whichever software they please. There are all sorts of mods and different versions out there. It gives the user a true choice on how they use their phone and how it runs. With different manufacturers competing against each other we get different types of hardware and always pushing the boundaries.

    Apple has done a lot for the smartphone market and the iPhone is still one of the best phones out there. If it was cheaper and there were more choices I would probably get it, however the HTC desire suits me fine, is easily as good as the iphone and is a lot cheaper.

    Apples mantra is very similar to Fords old one;

    ‘You can have any colour car you want so long as it’s black’

    is it jsut me or was i able to multitask and create folders on my g1? must have had a super g1 ?

    1. You mean they are not big on their main (only?) delivery system for advertising? Google lives and dies by software and are preferred over Apple in every arena where they have competed for more than 2 years. Chrome vs. Safari? Android vs. iOS?

    2. Apple understands that consumers only want to use their phones on AT&T?

    3. Android could multitask before iOS, did you do any research?

    4. Android has folder support. Part of the advantage of having an open system is that we don’t depend on Google to give us all of our features.

    5. One button does simplify things. For low level users, this level of simplification is acceptable. For anyone who wants to do more than use their phone to make calls and write texts, it is limiting.

    6. This argument may have held some water with Android 2.1, but with the JIT compiler added to the kernel, 2.2 is extremely responsive.

    7. This is only a disadvantage if you can not find a variation which you prefer to iOS. We are just comparing operating systems though, aren’t we? So having options is a advantage.

    8. Apple’s store is bigger, and more expensive.

    9. Android users don’t use iTunes. If they did, they would be Apple users.

    10. iOS 3 and 4 were NOT designed to be used on tablets either. Apple just ignores this fact because the iPad is usable, as is an Android tablet running 2.2

    Is this guy a joke, he must have been living in a cave over the last year. Where does the Iphone go from here? Are we going to see them release a new one every 6 months, the rate that android Is moving it will make the iphone look ancient by the middle of next year. Dual core phones and tablets, up to a gb of memory, and a lot of different form factors, apple cannot compete.

  • http://Website Johannes

    This guy should work for All he does is written in the form of a list, and most of it is so utterly retarded that it is easily mistaken for humouristic content.

    The only thing that I can kinda agree with is the last point of #5. Custom carrier UI, bloatware and restrictions to the platform is the work of the devil. I live in Europe where this doesn’t happen, so I have never tried it first-hand, but when I read about carrier specific app stores, paying for tethering(lol?) and apps that can’t be removed, I shit my pants. I am not saying that something like HTC Sense is a bad idea, but I am saying that the when carrier decides when to update Android it is a bad idea.

    Anyway, love my Desire and if I should win or be given an iPhone 4 I could not sell that fruit infected piece of garbage fast enough.

    Wow! They had nothing better to do. Most of those reasons are invalid. The topic itself of each supposed reason was more descriptive then the supporting detail. Multitasking? Apple just did that. Even now its not true multitasking. Their applications pause not run in the background.

    Folders? Android had that already.

    Itunes?! Music doesn’t make a phone. Cool they can go together but music will not make my phone work better, operate better, run faster, or make calls for me.

    They win for now on apps. But you need apps to make certain things happen on iPhones. That’s all it mostly is. A bunch of pannals full of apps. Android has most of that functionality built in.

    Android is so easy to use. Apple played catch-up this year. They added a bunch of features that other ui’s had already. Nothing spanking brand new to the game. I love android & apple is good but a lot of false info is said. None of those reasons had a real supported detail.

    Wow, there are pro’s and con’s on both sides but before you knock one or the other you might want to try using both before you put your foot in you mouth. The G1 had copy & paste not to mention multi tasking long before apple decided to finally add those options to their OS. All in all it doesn’t matter which way you go its all about what you want and need out of your device. This guy is obviously pro-apple, has never used android, and his only source of info is by other apple lovers. Next time check your sources and get it together kid, this made you look really bad!!!

  • http://Website Thorpeland

    Oh this list is comedy! Its clear by how many of us have responded, we know the truth. Fact is, an OS on version 2.x is already kicking the butt of an OS on version 4.x. Android is evolving and adapting faster than iOS can. And you really have to search hard to find something Android cannot do that iOS can at this point.

    The sad thing is, many people will read this article and think “oh golly gee whiz… i should go with an iphone”. Because Apple is a marketing genius as a whole, people who don’t do their homework fall into that Apple reality distortion field everyone jokes about. And that starts with people reading articles like these. And believing them!

    What gives me comfort is the statistical fact that more and more people are buying Android phones, learning what its all about and the OS is quickly growing into a competitive product. Articles like this one almost seem like a desperate grasp to hold on. When in reality there is nothing Apple or Microsoft can do to stop the inevitable. Which is getting passed up by Android in the very near future.

  • http://Website corydunbar

    1. Google isn’t so big on software
    Are you serious? Android is a more advanced OS and it provides more functionality and customization

    2. Apple understands consumers
    Really? it took Apple 4 years just to add pseudo-multitasking. something i*hone users have been clamoring for since the 1st generation i*hone.

    3. Multitasking
    iOS 4 uses pseudo multitasking (only certain apps can partially run in the background) whereas Android has true multitasking and Android has had multitasking since its first device the t-mobile G1

    4. Folders make it all OK
    Folders for everything that iOS 4 does have been available for Android for a long time.

    5. Ease of use must come into play
    Anyone who cannot figure out Android doesn’t have a brain of their own. Android is vary intuitive, but for some people that use Android they assume its like the rest of the iOS saturated market. Therefore they are confused when an Android device doesn’t run in the exact same manor as an i*hone.

    6. Responsiveness
    the iOS homescreen is essentially the same as my Android rolodex if you’d really like to compare which phone is faster, pit a Droid X with 200 apps(app limit is determined by hardware specs, ROM, RAM) vs. an i*hone with 176 apps (current i*hone max)[11pages * 16 apps/page]. Check to see which device can smoothly scroll through all of their apps the fastest.

    7. Too many variations
    Since when has giving customers choices been the bad marketing decision? any good business knows that more profit comes from product variation.

    8. Apple’s App Store
    Apples App store has been around longer, no duh it has more apps. Compare which App store has grown faster since Android became a mainstream OS. Both APP stores are flooded with to many renditions of the same thing. eg. fart apps.

    9. iTunes integration
    Although Android doesn’t have itunes direct integration their are 3rd party apps that do the same function as the i*hone>itunes. For example Android users can use an Android device>doubletwist>itunes or they can abstain from itunes all together and just use Amazon MP3 which is native to android devices.

    10. The tablet issue
    it may not be designed for tablets, but Android surely does work on tablets. Check out a Samsung GalaxyTab. Not to mention Google is going to be releasing a tablet focused rendition of Android in Q1 of 2011. iOS on the i*ad is simply a port of the iOS from the i*hone 3Gs to a large i*ouch. the only change is the screen size rendering.

  • http://Website Omeer

    Android must really suck for being years behind iOS even after growing 1,309% in a year while the iOS regressed. Even more so because Android is the most popular OS in America. Tsk tsk Android when will you learn that you simply cannot rectify apple fanboy idiocy with cold hard facts?

  • http://Website Jay

  • http://Website Phil

    Seriously folks…..he lost all credibility when he said Google wasn’t a software company. Its this new talking point to brand Google as an ad company. I don’t know why or what sense it makes. They don’t design ads. They just serve them. Anybody that knows anything about the internet knows Google is nothing but a software company that gives away products and services supported by ads. Anbody that knows anything about Apple knows that they are a hardware and UI design company had don’t hold a candle to Google in software engineering. You can barely name any real advances in tech coming out of Apple where Google has stuff from developer libraries to servers products for end users.

    In a nutshell the iFools are getting desperate. There is almost no way iOS can catch up to Android now. I think seeing that ridiculously huge lead in market share the other day has panicked them. Because it’s only a matter of time now before we start seeing the top apps go to Android first or worst yet exclusively. Remember there are MANY things you simply can’t do with the API on iOS. If devs start taking full advantage of Android you’ll start seeing alot of exclusives.

    The best part of this article was reading the comments… lol EPIC win for android! the true columb was a waste of my time. Obviously this guy hasn’t laid hands on an CURRENT android phone… Words of advise buddy… do your research before writting something like this…. I have a ton of friends who have iPhones yet EVERY ONE of them would rather have a newer android phone if they weren’t tied down by a shitty AT&T’s contract. Even jailbroken iPhones can’t do what Androids do!!! I’m a rooted phone user, CyanogenMod all the way! but regardless rooted or not, Androids will run circles around an iPhone all day long. Try streaming vids and music across different platforms wirelessly with an iPhone… ya you CANT…. I’ve dealt with iWhatever’s for years cause of my line of work… the more you handle iOS the more you realize that your using a product that Steve Jobs decides whats best for you… look how he handled the Adobe deal. Apple had the chance to get it first but Jobs stated that it was to much of a “security risk.” Everything thats not produced by Apple is a security risk yet what happened when the iPhone4 prototype got lost? Hundreds of people’s information became compromised which included major newscast members, head of secrete projects for the military, senators, congressmen, and quite a few other public figures.

    The only thing I really agree with is how Android wasn’t made for tablet use… but yet again Android is such an adaptable OS that you have a company like Notion Ink that reworks everything and is fixing to come out with what I like to call the iPad Killer but more commonly known as the Adam tablet…. Those of you reading, you should go check it out! engadget has had a few articles over it and they really dont take to kindly to the company because its been a year since they announced this thing, but it should be coming out this month! This tablet will set the standards how a tablet SHOULD operate! I also love how transparent the company is with the consumer!

    Do your research you tool before making accusations like this…. What college did you graduate from? or did you? This is about the most uneducated POS article i’ve ever read. Still can’t believe the editor allowed this to be posted…

    After following alot of complaints towards apple (especially the antenna gate) and the reactions of the company as well as Steve Jobs, I will never buy a apple product any time soon.

  • http://Website Jay

    This article is hilarious. I was really looking for the line admitting it was a joke. It cracks me up when iPhones get a feature (that every other platform has had for years) they act like the iPhone invented it. iOS received folder support (only on the homescreen) and “multitasking” 15 minutes ago and now they want to talk about it. Let’s get real, I had a Nokia 5800 before, it was 2 years old, and from day one I had true folder support (throughout the OS) and true multitasking. Android as both as well and has had it from day one. Android is about choice, 10 people can have 10 different Android devices and all 10 will look different even if they are the same device, because I have the option to change whatever I want. Every iPhone looks the same (oh, I forgot, you can change the wallpaper…lol!!!). Get real man, iFans need to admit that they have been had by Steve Jobs.

  • http://none IhateApplesoMuch

    Really? do you have downs?
    1: between google maps, google voice, gmail google has more native software than anyapple product, apple’s only integration tool is itunes, google has EVERYTHING integrated into android.

    2: hmmm……. taking a 200$ laptop, take out the room for cooling, take out the cd drive, reduce the hard drive to less than 100gb, and throw in a 3 year old intel2duo processor, throw an apple symbol on it and slap on a 1599$ price tage, AND BAM! you have the “new” macbook air.

    3:apple’s multitasking is not even true multitasking, its half-baked close and reopen tools, such as the new windows phone uses. from what youve said, the reason IOS’s multitasking is better is because its on IOS.

    4: no. folders are nothing. you can make folders on an android device as well, you can link them to your homescreen and you can add more things than jus apps, such as pictures, files, backups(another thing IOS doesnt have), and contact information

    5:Android too complicated for you? go and change it, you can do that, its open source.

    6: Go use any iphone comparable device(1ghz processor or more) running android, itll be just as responsive as the iphone.

    7: easy, go uninstall the 3rd party software, simple. one again i say, you can do that, android is open source.

    8: the android market may not have as many stepbrothers sound boards as apple’s but it has more quality, functional apps instead of just stupid fart sounds.

    9: every single google made program is integrated into android. not just a stupid music player. also, you can use ANY music software to sync your android device, your not limited to just one.

    10: android 3.0 is going to be primarily designed for tablets. all the IOS on tablets is, is just an increase in native resolution. the Ipad has no difference from the ipod touch. as a matter of fact, it has less than the ipod touch(no cameras). The difference between a android 2.2 phone and an android 2.2 tablet is more seamless than the difference between an ipad and a iphone.

    The writer of the article is lost for the most part.

    I will admit to one thing that the article says that I agree with and have a problem with Android, with every manufacturer comes a different user experience. Now what I mean by that is that Moto has Blur, HTC has Sense, Samsung has TouchWiz and you also have plain vanilla (my favorite). It does not give a fairly uniformed feel for the consumers.

    It is difficult to tell someone how to navigate their phone unless you know which UI they have, along with which version Android they are running. It would be nice if some form of a standard could be made by Google. They could incorporate the ‘powered by Google’ stamp of approval (or what not) on it so that consumers could move from HTC to Moto or Samsung without having to get use to a new UI.

    Rooting is available for those that like the custom UI’s available (and that includes vanilla :))

    Wow, he also wrote this one about 2 weeks ago:

    Check out #6 “Apple isn’t powerful anymore

    Apple might still be a major player in the mobile market, and it’s a company that should be respected. But Google has shown that it can beat Apple at its own game. Granted, the company had to do it with several devices against one, but it did it nonetheless. It has proved to the industry that it can beat Apple without much trouble.”

    This guy decided he could turn journalism into a formula where you just write lists of vague and uniformed praise/criticism about competing companies. Rinse, repeat, and profit. Now my head hurts that eweek actually publishes this crap.

Good you feel that way but look at the facts, I only read the first four and got sick of this guy. For 1 Google isnt big on software. Why should they be like microsoft they give an os to companys to build on but wait you have google maps, google sky maps on your Iphone dont you. I dont see any apple maps, or apple skymaps anywhere. case and point. Number 2. Apple will never understand cunsumers. Android has falsh and adobe pdf capabilities, and the G2 comes with word, and spreadsheets stock. Now flash on mobile isnt near what it is on pc’s and mac’s its still better than iphone, at leat i can watch a facebook video on the go rather than wait till i get home and hope i have the time to watch it. Number 3 multitasking. I had a G1 in Jan of 09 that had full multitasking, way way way before the iphone had it. Multitasking only came out with the iphone4 and iphone update earlier this year about 2 years behind. And it dosent have full multitasking, the G2 can run 8 programs at one time and seamlessley switch between them. Then number 4, they last point he tried to make and made me make this comment. Folders. Once again my G1 had folders and is not all that hard to make them. Long press on the home screen, add folders, name it and its there. Then open up the slide drawer long press on the app or function, the drawer closes and drop on the folder. Pretty easy huh, and google did this 2 years befors apple, wow pretty amazing. not to mention that palm, and windows mobile had some of his points down pat before the iphone4 did. guess what iphone, ipad, ipod and ieverything is going the way of the imac, gone and just about forgotten, but windows still is majoritys choice. dont listen to these type of people when you go to buy a product check out every platform outthere you just might be suprised as to what will actually benefit you more than just going with whats is popular. most of all check the facts for yourself!!!!

    I have after leaving my last comment skimmed over the rest of the article, and wow talk about a fanboy and not having any clue to the competitors products.

I give him some props for making the iphone to give some competition, but remember google bought android in 2005 before the iphone was even thought of. Read up on it and eventually you will see through the BS and see the facts. Android will kill apple either roll with it or get rolled over. Peace

    Wow. This article is so lame that even Android users are having a problem figuring out it was meant to be a “joke” aimed at dissing iOS.

  • Glen

    Dear author of above-mentioned biased and unsupported ariticle:

    If you’re going to write such an article, please do not litter it with ever repeating statements such as “Google has a long way to go” or “Google falls short” without any data or specific examples. I could write broad opinionated statements too – iPhone sucks.

    Every point is opinionated and completely biased.

    1. Apple might be a software company, but it doesn’t mean that they alone are the best OS makers. Before Apple, and mainly the iPhone, Microsoft dominated the market – and some would argue that they still do. And how many Windows OS phones are popular? Apple doesn’t want open sourced software because they do not want Apple devs to cut into their market. Google may not be a software giant – now – but where they don’t have to focus on PC software, they give attention to Android.

    2. The last time I checked, all MS products are locked pretty tight – just like Apple. If Google doesn’t understand consumers or what they want, how is such a successful search engine? Why are so many websites using Google AdSense? Phone wise – iTunes doesn’t even offer the best prices for music and/or video. Google doesn’t attempt to control this. Instead, they let the consumers make the choice via apps like Amazon, Amazon music, Shopper, etc.

    3. What’s so hard about playing music, pressing the ‘Search’ button and searching something on Google, and then seconds later getting a phone call, talking, and going right back to web surfing after the call hangs up? And if you still aren’t convinced Android doesn’t do multi-tasking, just compare the number of Task-Killers Android has in its market vs the number in the iTunes App Store. Android can do so many things at once that it needs an App Killer!! iOS can’t say that.

    4. Long press the screen on any Android phone and not only do you get the option to create folders, but we get Widgets. So what if iOS can now create a handy folder to dump all the neat little icons in it. Can you have a widget on your screen that shows the weather for the week – WITHOUT having to launch an app? Can you see your calendar for the next 5 days – WITHOUT having to launch an app? Can you flip through music – WITHOUT having to launch iTunes Music? Didn’t think so. Still happy about those folders?

    5. What’s so hard about looking at widgets and being able to tell it’s going to rain today? What’s so hard about pressing the dialer button and making a call? What’s so hard about pressing the convenient Apps list button and scrolling through available apps? All you can say is “Apple’s operating system is easier to use?” Prove it. If you’ve finger swiped one touch screen – you’ve swiped them all.

    6. Two words: Snapdragon processors.

    7. I actually can’t argue this. Fragmentation does hurt Android a bit. In my opinion, this is Android’s Achilles Heel. But this argument is going to last but so long. Enjoy it while you can.

    8. I have only this to say: Quality over quantity. Not to mention its already been proven that Android apps cost less for the same app offered on Apple.

    9. You can have iTunes. Please. I’ll enjoy downloading music from any computer and being able to offload it onto a friends computer. I’ll also enjoy being able to buy music from Amazon MP3 store and several other apps right to my phone without having to integrate it through a tied down, Hitler-like atmosphere.

    10. Ok. Sure. You beat Android to the tablet market. Big deal. Anyone who’s owned one or seen one will tell you it’s just an over-sized iPod Touch. Literally. Android tablets are on the way…and they offer usb ports, cameras, memory card ports, etc. So keep your giant size iPod Touch, er, iPad.

I mean I used my friends iphone and he needs 3 folders for games :| and when i asked him he had 3 folders he said ” because they dont fit in one folder” needless to say i laughed at him and pulled out my desire and showed him my ONE games folder and crushed his apply fanboy heart!
