I Take My Android Phone For Granted Compared to iOS!

"We love both Android and iOS, but the open nature of Android just means it can do things others just can't. Here are our favorite Android apps and features that you won't find on its Apple-clad brethren."

Lifehacker has an article up today highlighting 10 things that Android has over iOS, and as an Android enthusiast since early 2009, I'm a bit embarrassed to say that I forgot about most of these. Not forgot in the sense that I don't know they exist - forgot in the sense that I use them all and just assume they should be part of any premium Smartphone experience. While I might only use some of these (advanced automation features, removable storage) once in a blue moon, others (such as widget support, custom launchers and ROMs) are absolutely essential to me. Don't get me wrong, I own an iPhone - but only for the few apps that I don't have an Android equivalent (the iPhone has never been my daily driver). And these days, those apps are few and far between!

So Androiders - what do you find essential on this list? And iOS users - what do you wish your OS had (Or what does your OS have that I should be insanely jealous of?)!

Android 3.0's Fantastically Fun Features Presented For Your Perusal

Posted by Jason Lee in "Android News" @ 05:00 PM

"Here's the Android 3.0 Honeycomb homescreen for tablets. It's slightly different from Android's phone-interface to take advantage of the larger tablet-sized screen, which means there's even better multitasking and widgets."

The folks over at Gizmodo have put together a nice brief roundup of of some of the cool new features coming to us in Android 3.0. By all appearances Honeycomb is going to be one sweet tablet operating system (pun intended). I cannot wait to play with a device running the new OS. Now if I can get a decent tablet with only WiFi. I don't need another monthly fee for a device I honestly may not use.
