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.

Honestly, neither. For all I hate Nokia for what they did to Symbian, I'd rather go back to using s40 phones and hack some J2ME apps to get the features I miss ;)

But if I really had to choose, it would probably be Android, because I believe that its technical issues have more chance to get fixed over time than iOS' ethical issues. As an example, it seems that work has finally begun on solving Android's longstanding touch responsiveness problems, whereas one still cannot easily distribute iOS apps that did not receive Apple's approval.
