It is awesome. That video also told me a lot of things the iPhone can't.

It will be interesting to compare this to the 50 reasons the iPhone is better video when it comes out.

I'm in the HTC camp, so fairly impartial.

And there is the wonderful thing about choice. The fact there are 50 things you have a choice to use is great. You don't have to use them if you don't want to.

The 50 iPhone things will be interesting. I'll see what I'll be missing losing my iPhone 4.

One thing i have recently discovered which it didnt mention is the setting the alarm to briefing so that when it goes off it reads out the weather, todays schedule, and news headlines. (all very JARVIS from Ironman )

I think that video helps to demonstrate the completely different direction that Android and iOS are going in (very similar to the windows Apple OS).

One is becoming a mini computer and the other a controlled functional environment. In my view I think both are currently going too far in different directions.

I don't know why apple restrict some capabilities, although it does guarantee the performance of their phones, and the other seems to be going down the line of an incoherent user experience.

I agree about the different directions, totally polar. One lets you do almost everything, the other almost nothing. But i'm not convinced about the incoherent user experience only being on Android when people couldn't even disable their facebook contacts on the latest iOS update. Its not coherent if people that have had the phone over a year cant work it out.

Yeah, I agree with that (not particularly the facebook example) but in general. The more functions you have on a phone the more settings, etc you need and I think that both OS are suffering from that.

I have more (although limited) experience on Android and I can see this happening.
