The Orange View (on hiatus) Because Apple is great but it isn't perfect

I’m only linking to this because Gruber links to all its opposites

Finance blogger Cullen Roche has abandoned his iPhone in favor of an Android phone -- and he seems quite happy about it. Here's a brief snippet:

I have to say – Apple finally has real competition.  I’m still learning how to use the phone, but I am incredibly impressed by the Atrix 2 at first glance.  First, the phone is sleek, light and just as aesthetically pleasing as any iPhone.  This was always a major gripe of mine with the first few Android phones.  They were clunky or felt odd.  Not the Atrix.  It’s very light, has a massive display, but doesn’t feel huge.  You barely even notice it in your pocket.

The touch screen experience is every bit as impressive as the iPhone.  This was always another distinguishing feature on the early Android phones.  The user experience via touch was clunky compared to a super smooth iPhone.  That’s all been rectified.  And the screen is crystal clear as if you’re staring into blue ocean water.

As far as the technology goes – the Android OS is really impressive.  It’s every bit as fast as the iPhone, but the Android OS has the potential to outmatch the Apple OS.
