PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless With WebOS out of the picture and the Blackberry Playbook as good as gone as well, we really only have iOS and Android left until Windows 8 comes out. I’ve finally gotten around to getting an Android device myself and spent the last week trying to see if my theoretical knowledge of the system and what I remember from the last Android device I had (which ran 1.6, viewed as ancient in Android land) fits reality. Read on for a full tear down and comparison on the two OSes.

A few things overlooked

The author, I think, overlooked a few important things.

For instance, apps that cost money on iOS often have comparable apps on Android that are free. Bonus.

Also, as a power user, I appreciate that Android lets me be in control of the device in a way that iOS certainly does not. Rooting, custom firmware, a much more open Market, and so on and so on. That may not matter much to a 'typical user', but it matters to me, and, I imagine, others.
