PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Ian G. Clifton: "Early on, iOS did a lot to push mobile devices forward and helped set bars in a lot of areas for other platforms to meet. Unfortunately, iOS has not changed much lately and in some ways hurts Android when used as the 'golden standard' due to its limitations. A lot of the harm isn't realized by consumers, but Android developers encounter it constantly when something has to be done 'the iOS way' or an Android feature is not even considered because iOS cannot do the same."

"I don't think Apple is exactly sitting still either.

Nah, they're busy implementing features that Android has had for years ;) Turn-by-turn directions, anyone?

Maybe. But it wouldn't be smart of them, and I don't think Apple is a dumb company. They're stupid successful with their current trajectory without having to become someone else.

My point is that a lot of the calls for Apple to change course or do some dramatic shift or something are made without merit.
