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.

If there are only these two choices I have to say IOS. Because in my experience Android just does not work.

Even though I don't use it heavily, I have an Android phone. It is a low-end Huawei IDEOS X3 (U8510) which cost just $99 AUD for a smartphone. It works just fine. My wife has a Samsung Galaxy S Android phone, and it too works just fine. My son has an HTC Salsa phone running Android, and it too works just fine.

The only member of the family who is having trouble with their smartphone is my daughter, whose phone keeps cutting out all the time. My daughter has an iPhone, and so she spent a great deal more money on it than any other family member spent on their phones.
