PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I have often wondered why there wasn't a flood of Android portable media players - now the WSJ Reports: "With the move, Samsung will round out a series of Galaxy-named gadgets that matches product for product with Apple Inc.'s line of iPods, iPad and iPhone. Samsung will have the Galaxy Player, Galaxy Tab and Galaxy smartphone. All use a variation of Google Inc.'s Android operating system and work with apps developed for it."

You can write your own! No third party approval. If switching to a third party OS is too much for you, you can improve the device itself through writing apps for it, or finding apps online and installing them. Screw the App store review!

So what is wrong with App Store?
I don't need to wander through web for some obscure apps. In AppStore I can easily buy/download what I need with one click. And I need to enter my credit card in one trusted place to buy software. On PC it is Steam. Too bad they don't distribute other software than games through it.
AppStore prices are very low. For a price of typical PC-shareware game you can buy a few blockbuster titles on iPhone.
If someone is just asking $1 for a nice app or game, only fcking morons will pirate.
