Apple "Never mind the fact that the iPod turned the entire music industry on its head. Never mind the fact that most successful notebooks today resemble designs first popularized by Apple. Never mind the fact that the blueprint of the modern day smartphone remains the original iPhone. Never mind the fact that competitors are scrambling wildly to copy the success and design of the iPad. Forget all of these things, because when it comes to Apple, the 'what have you done for me lately?' mentality reigns supreme."

That's the tragic point of this entire thing. Android has MORE than enough hardware to accomplish the task. The OS (Gingerbread, things are much better now) was just unoptimized for the scenario.

Sadly that was more an intentional design rather than lack of optimisation.

The UI was all software rendered as Google devs thought having an OpenGL UI would cause bigger issues when switching between applications that also use OpenGL.

Whether that was a mistake on their part I don't know.
