While I am having a grumble, Google have possibly Innovated more ideas than anyone, Providing everything it can to the best user experience and FREE ! What about apple innovation? Touch screen phones, Sony Erricson and blackberry plus other did it first. Rounded rectangle phone, all screen, all touch sensitive, Sony did it first. First ever pad, film 2001, Star trek next generation. First video phone, 3 in the late 90's. First email and internet, Nokia among others. First to have a shortcut bar, LG. All these things and more apple have tried to sue over! When I talk to iphone users they appear to think Apple invented everything and others copied Apple? Go look at the two phones side by side, have a play with them then decide. I agree Android is quite ugly and gray/black but its the only one that lets you change it to what ever you like!
