The very simple back story:
- iPhone 4 was announced
- Simon said 'hey, you've been wanting a new gadget for a while, you should get an iPhone 4'.
- I didn't protest, funny that
- Simon brought home a loaner iPad to play with.
- I was more impressed that I expected to be (and as Simon will attest, my expectations on technology are so high, the result is I'm rarely impressed)
- I wanted that iPhone 4 more than ever
- Simon brought home a loaner Google NexusOne Android to play with.
- I played
- He took it back
- I pined
- I bought a Google NexusOne Android. 3 days later. (and I was a little bit unbearable in my impatience I might add)
There is essentially nothing I'd have got with the iPhone 4 that I don't get with the Android - with the exception of the Apple brand - an ommission which I'm more than comfortable with.
Like I've been doing with Open Office, I'm going to write a series of blogposts on my experience with the Android, tips and tricks, things I've learnt, things I'd like to see (I always want more when it comes to tech!), and as always, I'm also more than willing to try things out on request if you care to leave a comment.
