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.

Android for me. I can't stand most of Apple's products except for the iPod (I can't live without that!). Nothing personal against Apple. I just grew up using Linux about 90% of the time and Windows the other %10. I like to tinker with my OS's and devices. I can't do that with iOS. Honestly, I wouldn't even use Windows at all if it wasn't for Netflix, DivX streams and gaming...

So basically, if you're a bit of a nerd, poor or generally just cheap then Android. If you're completely technology illiterate and have some money to burn then iOS.

As far as how well they work. I've used both and never really had too much of a problem with either of them concerning typical day to day use.
