Nicholas Johnson was keen enough to share an Android Users Guide with me.
It’s pretty cool and lays-out how to access and use many features associated with the Android Operating system.
While I was investigating the section relevant to “calendars”, I was struck by the thought that I don’t like their look and feel. And, now I realize that I am of the opinion that Android is not “elegant”. You have to take more steps to make it work – as opposed to it working the way you might expect an extremely well designed piece of software to function. Also, many of the apps and features have an “etch-a-sketch” and “washed-out-Google(y)” appearance. It’s reminiscent of Windblows (although that was more “grainy”) prior to Windows 7 (all of which was stolen from Steve Jobs any way). Now I need to look deeper, and might even hesitate to use the word: “prior” until I can verify. I will say, under any circumstances, that I like what Android does with Map-oriented apps. It’s at least as good as anything found on an Apple device. The “Directions” feature is particularly easy to use and relevant.
So.. Now I have to decide whether I’m enjoying my Sprint driven EVO 4G more because it’s just something different than my iPhone 4, or the Blackberry 8900. Maybe I’m just relieved to be off of the over-populated AT&T network. Perhaps I simply like the craftsmanship of the HTC handset itself.
I still think Blackberry users are simply insecure (read more about that, and, here). We, the collective “we”, that comprise Prudent and Optimistic Gentlemen, might suspect the iPhone and related Apple products are simply superior and facilitate domination in many facets of life.
What makes my opinion worthy of consideration, other than my perspective is simply reasonable? I’ve owned and operated all the handsets discussed in this Blog. Most of the readers of this Blog likely have not.
Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.
