Google Today, Google has released the software development kit for Android 2.0, the company's mobile operating system. The SDK gives away all the new features, and there's indeed quite a lot in this one. The biggest new feature is multitouch support, but there's a whole lot more.

"
You actually think that Android shipped without any bugs?


There's no such thing as a "bug free OS".
But that doesn't mean that every OS is "buggy" either.

Android doesn't feel like a buggy OS. For me, it feels solid and stable.

People disagree with you.

Given the infinite numbers of people connected to the Internet and the huge numbers of handsets that have Android these days - it's hardly surprising that you're going to find people that are dissatisfied.

Now compare those thread (which were pretty barren aside the opening poster) to the hundreds of threads singing Androids praises, and I think you'll see that the picture isn't nearly as bleak as you're post would suggest.

In fact, to illustrate my point further, I could just as easily list off a dozen threads with people moaning about their iPhone yet the iPhone is arguably the most usable smart phone to date.

There are major difference in stability between 1.0, 1.1, 1.5 and 1.6. Most of your links predates even version 1.0. Having bugs in alpha and beta stages of a project is quite normal and doesn't necessarily mean that the final application will be of poor quality

Today Android is quite stable, and calling it buggy is very far from the truth. I'm not saying there are no bugs, but that's very different from being buggy. Every software project this size have bugs regardless if its made by Google, Apple, Symbian...
