OK I have read your replies to others and understand what you mean somewhat. Let me tell you this: it's a pretty weak argument for your big shout about android is all about choice.
First off you can't blame Apple for your lack of research before you bought your iPod Touch, can you? What you said is a known fact.
Secondly, Yes I can customize my homescreen to anything I want and I'm pretty happy with it, I can do it right there on my device or on iTunes if I choose to do so. Once customized everything is in sync.
Does it have live information like Andorid or WP7, of course not. Not a deal breaker for me. Every system has its quirk and if I want I can show you the flaw of Android very easily. And better yet, live information will come, sooner or later. Right now the most important thing for us who use iPhone as a tool to help us is a simplicity of the system. The way you can plug-in your iPhone to computer when you got back home from work and it will call iTunes up, back up your data, sync everything (and I mean "everything"
) and even charge the phone without a single buttone pushed, the way I can have a peace of mind for at least a couple of years for an OS upgrade, the way the battery last you a whole day...
...and how fast and reliable the system is.
Checking weather? Oh yeah...I'm just a second or so slower than you. Big deal!
No, iOS is not for everyone but again your example is pretty weak if that's your argument for "Android is choice".
Heck, I can customize my Windows any which way I want on my PC and I still can't remember when the last time I changed my desktop background, let alone doing anything else.
How about when Google forced Motorola to cease to use some company's map database as planned? Is that the way the supposedly "all-about-choices" system behaves?
