"Amazingly robust operating system with little or no lag time. It makes Windows Mobile feel like a retiree; even the iPhone feels like a middle-aged person compared to Android OS."

The iPhone is amazingly slow in some respects. No idea why, except that the S/W is poorly coded or the data structures not appropriate. OTOH, Android is new and not yet full-featured. It may well evolve into bloatware. Just look at how the Firefox browser started as a fast alternative to Navigator, but is now a real heavyweight with all its features.

However, the real plus point for Android is its open nature, in start contrast to other OS's and the iPhone SDK. Now it is up to teh carriers and hardware vendors to ensure that it remains open and all the features accessible, by letting go of their intrinsically controlling natures.
