I got my android on Thursday evening, and it’s now Wednesday, so I feel I now have some perspective on it.
Technical things first: I got the Motorola Droid 2 from Verizon. It has a pull-out keyboard, which sold me on it. It is a little bulky.
First, the bad: no universal cut’n’paste. You almost forget how much it is taken for granted on today’s computers. I view this as the next gaping flaw the os should address. The browser deals with resizing suboptimally – I would like a mode where I force the text to be bigger and reflow. In a related note, you would expect mainstream websites to have a more mobile friendly version, no?
No crappy pre-loads
Pretty good app selection
Several decent games
A solid 5/10 on voice recognition
If this continues, apple has their work cut out for them to stay ahead of the game.
