"This whole Android situation began about two years ago when I
wanted a tablet computer and started looking for one. I didn?t want
to plop down $600 on an iPad but I didn?t want to settle for a
tablet that wasn?t going to meet my needs as a real portable
computing platform either.
"The topic arose again about two months ago, when Jason and I
were talking about tablets, the new iPad 3, Android tablets and the
general state of mobile devices in the workplace. From that
conversation, I decided to write, ?Why I?ll never own an
Android-based anything? and followed it up a few days later with
?Android angst revisited. The saga continues.?
"I received much negative commentary over those two posts in the
form of emails, Google+ rants, comments in the Talkback sections of
those articles and on other websites. It was both stimulating and
irritating to see so many people tell me how wrong I was for having
rejected Android devices. You see, I eventually chose to purchase
an iPad 1 and an iPhone 4."
