      I have an Iphone but it SUCKS but Siri is good

      • trailblazerz

        Playing with my friends iphones I find Siri quite useless besides messing around.
        Google Now voice search is better imo though I still find voice search not ideal and obnoxious unless driving.

    First of all, I rely on Google apps heavily ,gmail,picasa,youtube,gtalk, maps and the found the whole integration with your Google account cool. Plus it was so fun after boring old iOS .
    It was refreshing and liberating :-)

    Why I choose Android.

    I was flooded out of my house and lost everything in June 2008. I needed connectivity. I needed a way to email people and get access from the internet on the go. I had no home, and no computer. I seen the commercial for the G1. What sold me was the street view ad. I could have gotten the iPhone, but I wanted the physical keyboard and something different. I knew Android would be big. I wanted to get in at the bottom level. So i got two G1′s for my lady and me in Oct when they released. Never looked back.

    I don’t think I could have done what I did without having a smart phone. I mean i probably could have, but it would have been much more difficult.

    Android integrates with my workplace network without any issues. Setting up my tablet on the secure network took all of five minutes. After the setup, I have been able to connect almost instantly ever time.

    Setting up an iPad takes several hours and even then connecting to the network is not consistent and frequent loss of connection if you do manage to connect.

    Also there are more available apps that are useful to me on Android at lower prices.

    At my university you can choose between programing for Android or the iPhone. Other then that I love how my LG 4x HD looks like and using android ics is a joy in every way.

    I was hooked on Android from the eaaaaaarly demo video with the spnning globe years ago. Handful of friends had iPhones and the interface just didn’t interest me for a phone despite having an iTouch. From the video till I got my OG, i had a Treo 700wx and LG Rumor(still best physical keyboard ever).

    Google pretty much owns my soul, with a piece given to Amazon as well.

    My job actually promotes the android devices to us because of the compatability with our systems…they actually suggest not to use apple products because some of our systems will not work with their products….but I have had Android products for about 6 years now and I love them because of the ease of use!! Currently using the Galaxy S3!!

      G1 release date: October 22nd 2008. Total time for Android 4 years (to the general public).

      Unless you are part of the Google acquisition team:

      “Google acquired Android Inc. on August 17, 2005, making Android Inc. a wholly owned subsidiary of Google. Key employees of Android Inc., including Andy Rubin, Rich Miner and Chris White, stayed at the company after the acquisition. Not much was known about Android Inc. at the time of the acquisition, but many assumed that Google was planning to enter the mobile phone market with this move.”

      Or part of the Danger Team:

      “Android, Inc. was founded in Palo Alto, California in October 2003 by Andy Rubin (co-founder of Danger), Rich Miner (co-founder of Wildfire Communications, Inc.), Nick Sears(once VP at T-Mobile), and Chris White (headed design and interface development at WebTV) to develop, in Rubin’s words “…smarter mobile devices that are more aware of its owner’s location and preferences.” Despite the obvious past accomplishments of the founders and early employees, Android Inc. operated secretly, revealing only that it was working on software for mobile phones. That same year, Rubin ran out of money. Steve Perlman, a close friend of Rubin, brought him $10,000 in cash in an envelope and refused a stake in the company.”

  • Alec Waddelow

    The tightly integrated and connected Google ecosystem. It all works together so seamlessly on an android device. That’s the most compelling reason that keeps me with Android.

  • AndroidLove

    I use my S3 for work and love it

  • jonstle

    I just love how it works with just about everything. If you need something specific it is pretty easy to make an app to fit your needs and install it without having to go through an app store.
