PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless A big day today for 20 million Android users out there: Samsung has started the process of updating the Galaxy SII to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Sadly, only a few European countries and South Korea will get it this week, although you can flash the official ROM yourself if you so desire (like I did today). Sadlier sadly, its TouchWiz is virtually identical to that of Gingerbread. Update: This is what HTC is doing to Ice Cream Sandwich. And I thought TouchWiz was bad. Please... Just - stop. Stop it. Stop doing this. Go away.

Apple is a phenomena unlike anything else on the market. Drawing generalizing conclusions from it is always risky.



And so is WP7. It is a brand new OS on a highly competitive market. On top of that WP7 have less features than both Android and iOS. Did they really expect that to sell well. This doesn't mean that WP7 can't be a success some time in the future, but it will take some feature development, time and marketing. iOS was far from feature complete when it was first released, but look at it now.

You seem to agree with me. Apple could get away with missing features, MS couldn't. Their following that is radiating recommendations on every direction is something that no other company has in any industry.
