    Talking Android... Resistance is futile!

    Here is the Q3 Gartner sales report. Android is #2 WORLDWIDE for Q3 sales. Best part is that it has held that spot most of the year. iOS is dwindling as well. Looks like Uncle Steve was wrong when he called Android "irrelevant"

    Android Tops iOS, Becomes Number Two Mobile OS Worldwide According to Gartner | Android Phone Fans

    Enjoy!

    It's OK for your Droid to be different. Just be supportive and reassuring and it will do just fine. It's when you or other people point at it or mock it for being different is when its' feelings get hurt. Just show it unconditional love regardless of its' differences and it will in turn reciprocate that love and loyalty.

    Android caters to the masses, so this was kinda inevitable. Virgin even offers a $99 android phone. There are multiple phones, on every carrier using it (even at&t, although i heard there worse than verizon in terms of all the carrier stuff added) There are also 2 for 1 deals with verizon and sprint.

    Honestly as a user of both, android needs alot of work (alot) and it would be good to have it stay more or less 50/50, but apple really needs to expand the amount of carriers it's on to play that game.

    In one way it's a shame, because Google doesn't stick up for the end user at all, which is why on the "open" Android OS i'm prompted with OTA updates for apps and a vcast appstore i never asked for. It along with the other useless verizon software cannot be uninstalled.

    You know what else is a joke? Scrolling through your applications page. It's 2010, (almost 2011) and my android runs froyo, with a 1ghz processor. My 2007 iphone was far smoother. In terms of navigating the OS, using the browser. (opera's pinch to zoom is a joke too, pinching and zooming to predefined zoom levels is NOT pinch to zoom, it's a sloppy hack job)

    quality counts for alot.

    And in the English language, alot is not one word. For example, repeat after me, a lot of iPhone users are sheep.

    Why are they sheep? Verizon, sprint, At&T all strangle the Android platform far far harder than iOS (although most of them don't have the chance yet to strangle iOS)

    My Incredible has two radio apps provided by verizon i can't uninstall, along with cityID, my verizon mobile, slacker, vcast apps, vz navagator.

    Yeah android is open, just more open to carriers

    So why can't my droid from 2010 scroll through it's app page without stuttering? Cause i don't think it's the hardware, (a lot)

    My guess is that the iPhone (and i'd throw in the touch wiz theme of the Fascinate) more operates as a transitional animation between two screens. Where as the stock android app drawer is more of a real time response to touch, that is a lot more processor intensive.

    it doesn't. Otherwise you couldn't cann it half way through (just as smoothly) and go back, half way through getting to the next screen.

    It's just open gl es. Android doesn't have it for the OS yet.

    Jesse, you have some really good valid points. The unstallable apps are far from what any user wants...forcing people to have an app is crap, and completly violates googles policy. I disagree with your complaint about the smoothness though. My schrolling is just fine, id say its completly on par with iOS. What I think any OS should have is a native file manager, that's where android needs to improve. Copy and paste in my oppinion sucks as well...but it is being worked in on one of the next updates.
    Turtle bit me.I thought they were slow....they snap so fast. ................. <3

    It matters because it is wrong. Arguing that it's acceptable because we were able to figure out what he meant is ridiculous. Would you accept a 12fps video player? Of course you wouldn't even though you could probably watch a video and figure it out. Low standards shouldn't be tolerated in apps, OSs, hardware or forum posts.
