Have you ever said? "I’m thinking about an Android or an iPhone. Which one?”
Android, on the other hand, has a market where there isn’t any real inspection process, which makes it a buyer beware free-for-all. The end user is accountable for the security of their device. If the official Android Market (recently upgraded to the Google Play Store) isn’t enough for you, there are about a half-dozen other markets that you can download apps from, as well as the ability to download apps directly via a PC or your phone and side-load them onto your device — all without any risky jail-breaking or rooting of your device. This makes it very difficult for anyone to limit what apps are available.
On an iPhone, I have to email the document to my Amazon account from Calibre. I then log onto my Kindle page on Amazon, select the document, and select Deliver To My iOS device from a pull-down menu. It isn’t that you can’t do all of the same things, but in some cases, the simplicity of iOS can make things a little more difficult. Each of these are examples of “power use” though, where I’m pushing beyond the “appliance-like” mobile experience. Many users would never try these things. However, for people who want to push the limits, iOS can be a stifling experience.
