Google At the Google I/O conference, Google just held its second keynote address, which focussed on Android. The talk was held by Vic Gundotra, and he unveiled a number of new features coming in Android 2.2 "Froyo", as well as some features coming in Froyo+1. The main theme of the entire keynote? Openness and choice, and a whole bucketload of not-so-subtle jabs at Apple. I'd like to apologise upfront for a possible lack of critical notes in this article - I'm still handing out the brownie points to Google for yesterday.

I'll take your bait.

iPhone on Verizon is still a rumor.

The strong one, and likely to be happened this year.


I do agree that sheeple will flock to the iPhone if that does happen. Let's face it, you're just not cool if you're not sporting that apple logo. Your street cred can't afford take that kind of hit.

Someone managed to put Android on iPhone, but it's useless.


I bought an Apple sticker to attach to my Droid so I can get a good sense of self worth when people see it and just assume I have an iPhone, even though I know I'm a rebel going against the herd.

Just by attaching Apple sticker can't fix ugly interface.

"It's still a rumor, and has been for some time.

"What would be cool if someone ported Windows to the Droid, I would be way uber cool then.

+PLEEEAAASE, do explain! How is it useless? I just have to know.

+ I am going to TOTALLY take your word on it. Really, I am. Your opinions on the aesthetics are in no way shaped by the iTard club card in your back pocket is it? No? Didn't think so.

Agreed. The Iphone and OSX perfectly demonstrate this assertion.

Arguments from Android shills really laughable, mostly come from jealousy.
