Android In June of last year, I finally decided to commit to an Android device. I had carried every flagship iPhone up through that point from the original iPhone to the 5S. To the world around me, I heaped the praise into a life transforming device, but in my tech circles, and on my blog, I frequently posted about my frustration, mostly with shackles and intentional limitations imposed. So last year, why I decided to make the jump to Android. I outlined 10 reasons why I was finally ready to make the jump to Android’s 4.4 release, KitKat. A year has passed. It's time to revisit my original assertions and complaints with some follow up and see where I stand one year later.

What exactly is it that you need to do, "on a tablet". As I think that is the issue here, you expect the tablet to operate like a normal laptop with Windows or OSX. It's not, it's meant to consume media, read ebooks and other materials, email, web surfing, light gaming, maybe edit a office document. I think your putting to much responsibilities on a device that wasn't meant for the tasks that you had in mind.


thats exactly what i want to use it for
but the reality is:
- browsers are crap
- mail-clients are crap
- mediaplayers are crap
- office-tools are crap
- filebrowsers are crap
- the whole thing is dog-slow (which i blame on java ;) )


and for the killig-blow riddle me this:
what went wrong when you have a device that was specifically made for touch-input, with an os that was specifically made for touch-input, that connecting a bluetooth-mouse is a vast usability-improvement?
