Oh, and Google is already *better* than Apple at design when you are talking about android vs ios. ios' skeumorphic crap looks cartoonish compared to stock android 4+. Even OEM skins are getting very light, allowing stock android design to shine.
On the other hand I will admit that hardware-wise, Apple crushes all android OEMs (and PC laptop makers) in the design area. But you can't totally blame google for that.
