Google Once upon a time, in a land, far, far away, there were two mobile operating systems. One of them was designed for mobile from the ground up; the other was trying really hard to copy its older, desktop brother. One was limited in functionality, inflexible and lacked multitasking, but was very efficient, fast, and easy to use. The other had everything and the kitchen sink, was very flexible and could multitask, but had a steep learning curve, was inconsistent, and not particularly pretty.

"My Galaxy SII is a true computer, instead of a mere smartphone."

- A 'real' computer sports something akin to a GNU userland. While Android is certainly more *customizable* than iOS, it remains firmly in the realm where *smartphone* OS's belong.

"Swiftkey X allows me to do something no other smartphone keyboard can: work with two autocorrect/suggest dictionaries at the same time."

- Maemo5/N900 sports dual dictionaries out of the box.
