    This article is for all the Android fan bois who preach how much better it is because its "open source". Ahhh... just makes me want to laugh at how naive most people are when they don't do any research before making judgments.

    Android is dead anyway. HP WebOS is a ground up design that will have its own content manager, e-store, and interface just like iTunes. Android is a mess of "put whatever, wherever" and it's had 3 years to get a system together. HP's going to become #2 behind Apple damn near instantly when WebOS is fully operational.

    Google knows this and that's why they are trying to move towards a platform, but Android will die quickly to WebOS.

    I always found android to be like a foreign roadmap.

    It's all over the place!

    But having said that, haven't they made their impact as a brand?

    in Ireland & generally Europe, Android is pretty huge!

    Just remember kiddies:

    There's more source code available for iOS 4.3 than there is for Android 3.0 (as of 2 April 2011 11:25 GMT).

    Any claims of "Android is open" will be referred to those URLs while I lol my tiny little head off that Apple has more source available than Google. Judging by Rubin's allusions to Honeycomb development and availability, I'll be chortling in my little head for quite a while.

    It's open source for companies, which just ends up screwing consumers. You can't give cell providers anymore power than they already had.

    Honeycomb will have its source released once the port to phones has been made. I can't say I blame them as they move towards standardizing Android. It is much needed and most welcomed in the community. Android is not dead. Nor will it be when HP drops their webos. For such an "informed" member of this community to say that is pretty laughable.

    Hate to say it but have to laugh at this post also. I checked out the Android phone also and could never change over to it. It's my opinion here... it's nothing compared to the iPhone....

    Turn the power button on that's on the back and go to town. The only issue I have right now is finding a great case for it. I have one ordered from Zoogue, but wish that Targus would drop one like I have for the iPad. Once Apple has worked out the backlight bleeding I will return the iPad 2 for another one. The Xoom is a solid tablet and gets used far more than the iPads do, but I have almost 400 dollars wrapped up in Apps so it will probably be what keeps the iPads around as well.

    I totally agree with Android on phones not being up to par with iOS on phones. Granted, you can do more things on Android than on iOS concerning Stock Phone vs Stock Phone, but iOS has a better feel. I want Apple to release a larger screen. I am interested to see what Android has in store for their new phone OS code named Icecream. In the mean time I am waiting on the iPhone 6. The 5 will be a waste of time IMO.

    I like android better than iOS and it takes some getting used to. Android does need tightening because the app store situation is getting out of hand. Ere is a lot of junk cluttering the app stores and scammers trying to make a buck by making fake "dreamcast emulators" that close when you open them.

    I honestly think they should set hardware requirements so they don't clutter the market with devices that are all similar. I guess their take is more quantity than quality.

    I'm love the fact that I can have more freedom when it comes tocertain apps and stuff (emulators etc)

    Apple hit the nail on the head with instituting guidelines for 3rd party apps. I just think they need to make their sandbox a little bigger that would let devs hook into more functions. Android is just beginning to institute this as it is much needed.
