    You realize that's probably because the tech-savvy Android users aren't going to call you, they're going to look up the answer on xda because they've rooted their phones and are running custom roms in the first place, right? xD

    Honestly, I agree with Occam. In general, all the non-techie people I know have/want iPhones because they are popular and stylish. iDevices are what the non-techie people want; Android is the geek phone.

    Thats such crap. Android is what people SAY they want when they cant buy an idevice due to price, and try to make themselves feel better with an inferior product. Its like people who say "Im happy with this Porsche, why would I want to buy a Lamborghini? They are ugly and anyway and chicks don't get turned on by them."

    Regarding the iOS vs Android debate, the same goes here in European shores, you get the iPhone to be "stylish" and the android to be "geeky". That's just the stereotype that's plagued the whole mobile market for years. But really, I think that's a shallow way to look at it. They can both be stylish and geeky, it's just a matter of preference.

    An iOS device is so locked down, making it almost idiot-proof for non-tech savvy users. They just open up the device, download and use apps, not having to worry about having to root your phone or do something else to it for added functionality. They use iTunes to add/remove media.

    On the other hand, for advanced users who want to add that certain functionality, it's a big hassle, add the fact that you are most certainly tied to iTunes (you can't even drag and drop songs or movies without it) and the app store under normal circumstances unless you go the extra mile to jailbreak.

    I think they both have their potentials, especially android which is now blooming with more and more apps. The problem still lies on fragmentation. Android has way too many devices.

    I am a software developer by profession and I know how frustrating it is when your program fails on a certain platform/very specific machine because it doesn't have the standard specifications as the majority of the other users have.

    The same goes for android, a lot of phones to support while on iOS, you just have basically two. Easier to develop and support, the reason a lot of apps are still not on android. To most developers, especially those who do not have a lot of funding, cringe at the thought they have to tweak certain options for a particular device or two --- and potentially even more tweaks for other devices in the future releases.

    However much I'd like to switch, I'd still pick iOS devices until android settles its fragmentation issues and finally put a standard in terms of hardware specifications to be highly optimized as iOS devices are.

    Also, if all my apps were currently in the android app store, I'd switch too (well, have them both, really ) Again, not saying one is better than the other, I just "prefer" iOS right now because of the apps, even if an android device had supreme specs, it's pretty useless to me if I can't have my apps on it or equivalent that's better or at least at par with the original app.

    off topic: Hey! We're on the same map. It's just weird here how the iPhone is way too expensive, I could buy and iPad+normal smartphone for the same price.

    When I started playing on a Tablet (ipad), I never went back to my iphone.

    The experience is super on the ipad. Large screen, easy touch, great res.

    When I am playing for competition, I am on the software version, running on broadband.
