Ahh, Another one of the age-old debates of Android vs iOS.
These are some of my opinions against the new iPhone 4S, iOS and Siri being Ground-Breaking… I’ve done some voice command tests as well to prove that Siri really isn’t as ground-breaking and as new as people believe it to be. These type of features have been around for years already. The iPhone 4S is just a catch-up device. This set of hardware, software, and functionality would have been a bit more groud-breaking and innovative had it been released in the iPhone 3GS. Other devices around the same time that phone came out were releasing 8MP Cameras, Voice Command Features, and more. A lot of you believe that iPhone was the first smart phone out there to integrate a touch-screen into a cellphone, an mp3 player, and so on. Anyone who’s a bit savvy with Google will find that Sony Had a touchscreen Ericson back in 2000, There were also other cell phones with the capability of playing MP3’s years before iPhone’s release in 2007. I believe the only reason iPhone does so much better is because of perception of the device as being revolutionary.

Some people have been also arguing that Siri is innovative because you can speak to it without the need to use actual voice commands. Iris and Vlingo for Android are capable of doing that as well. Vlingo is a personal assistant as well and has been out for a while now. In the end, I believe it all boils down to personal preference on devices. The real point I’m trying to make though is that there’s nothing Evolutionary or Ground-Breaking about the new Apple Product Releases. This has all been widely seen in previous devices from other companies years before.

    Dude Check out the Motorola Xoom or Samsung Galaxy Tab. Its way more advanced than the iPad in many ways. Check out some video reviews and see for yourself. Even some Apple fans would rather have the android tabs when it comes down to true features, hardware, and software

  2. Jeremy M says:

    I really want to get a GOOD Android tablet. I enjoy keeping up with gadgets.

  3. Dro Simoes says:

    I do too. It’s “Hip” to be an Apple product owner these days. Personally, I prefer not to be tied down by a product which strives on being proprietary.

  4. Jeremy M says:

    Yeah. Totally. Oooo… dual core version of the same phone that came out last year with voice recognition. WOOOOO!!!

  5. Jeremy M says:

    Regardless, I believe it is personal choice.

  6. Dro Simoes says:

    I will give it this though, iPhone was the reason for all of these other devices coming out, but now, they’ve fallen way behind.

  7. Jeremy M says:

    It isn’t. Siri-usly.

  8. Dro Simoes says:

    And I’m in no way trying to tell anyone to go one way or the other, I just think a ton of people are misinformed by thinking iPhone is so ground-breaking with all of it’s new features when in reality, it’s just playing catch-up all of the time.

  9. Jeremy M says:

    Dude, I concur. I realize that – hell, I switched to T-Mobile years ago just to get an Android phone.

  10. Dro Simoes says:

    I can respect that, But android has been capable of doing that for years…

  11. Jeremy M says:

    I love Android and iOS. Both have perks and both have pitfalls. I got the iPhone 4S the day of the release and I like it. Siri is more fun than helpful. I enjoy fucking around and asking it Magic 8 Ball like questions. Really fun when drunk!!
