Wrong point of view here...
The real question here isn't quite so much when Android is going to kill
Apple's smartphones but when are the non-phone features on an iDevice
going to make speciality devices moot. Others that have complained about
specs cited in isolation have stumbled onto the dirty little secret that smart
phones make crummy cameras. They also make crummy media players.
They also make crummy web browsers. They also make pretty crummy game
machines. We put up with that because we all need phones and having
something else built in means that something is available even if it is mediocre.
My media player of choice is an Android because it is open, has gobs of space
and plays anything SD natively. So even if the wife drags along the iphone or
the ipad, my Android is coming along too.
So are the real cameras.
The real question is whether or not there will be some sort of vendorlock
keeping apple phone users tied to apple when those contracts expire.
Just like Windows an DOS in the past, it's not so much about how good
stuff is but whether or not you will be out in the cold for using something else.
Compatability is king, especially in a web being pushed to discard open web
technology for highly proprietary "apps".
