Apple is starting to copy Android. Then they shouldn't sue each other, because they're getting some idea of each side. It should be a give-and-take concept. :)

Well the last para just sums it all for the iOS... Though I can still see many haters still bashing here... Come on... I know you love Android but this really is not your forum... So stop trolling here... Just shows your immaturity...

I just finished downloading it, it's perfect, i love it. But the upgrade was a total pain, stupid itunes gets slower every time they update it.

I think the last sentence sums up the apple experience perfectly...
iphone is about the apps, it's about other developers making apple products more appealing.
If you actually look at the hardware apple have provided over the years it's really lacking in innovation (initially no mms / gps / terrible camera) ... BUT... as a vessel / conduit for apps - it's perfect... it's taken 5 versions to get to resembling a fully functional OS...
iOS 5 perfectly encapsulates this - it's simple, clean, it's not innovative, it's not customisable, it's simply a front end for the app store...
I think that's what I've been battling in my head for a while... I don't want a phone that looks like everyone else's.. I don't want to be restricted in what I can / can't do on my phone..
And if that means suffering by not having the 'best' apps (and let's be honest, Android doesn't) then so be it...
At least my phone is MY phone, it looks and works how I want it to - it's not someone else's vision of what a mobile phone should be...

Yawn. Nice to see Crapple nearly up to date. About time it was able to do most of the things that Android and others have been able to do for years! As for imugs complaining about people copying them when its normaly Papple copying everyone else, the most blatant one ever is here for the world to see! Notifications! What a total Android rip off! If Slapple can sue every company for having a product that has a vowel in its name Goggle could probably sue the pants of them for such an obvious rip off!
