Google "As an online discussion about iOS vs. Android grows longer, the probability of someone bringing up this link approaches 1." The argument goes that before the iPhone, Android looked like a BlackBerry clone, and after the iPhone, it suddenly turned into an iOS clone. While this argument, with its pictures, is snappy and easily digestible, it doesn't actually seem to be supported by the facts.

iOS not flexible?

In other words, unlike iOS, Android was built to be flexible, and run on many sorts of devices, with different screen sizes and form factors.


Actually, iOS is a variant of Mac OSX. That suggests to me that iOS is more flexible than Android -- inasmuch as I am unaware of any Android-based desktops or laptops. If such exist, I guess that puts them on par.
