I have an Android phone for development as well, haven't been that impressed - but then I keep looking at things thinking 'And here's another spot where my parents would get lost...' Very curious about the new Pre stuff though, including the multitasking implementation for the tablet - which iOS fundamentally isn't set up for (thanks to the 1 app window thing...). Maybe with iOS 5? (But then, I actually thought that 1 app at a time was something every user could just 'get' on a phone - no task manager, no strange double-click to find the icons of recently run (or running???) apps, etc., though multitasking is more important/useful at the iPad form factor.)
And to be fair, I know there have been some trojans on Android (and jail-broken iPhones), but I don't know of any actual viruses there either, just had someone ask me what virus scan I run on my phone. Ugh. If you want to see really annoying mixing of virus/worm/trojan into one term 'virus', then being used to justify saying the Mac is full of viruses (?), check out some of the Jason Mick articles on DailyTech. OMG. Which has sensitized me to seeing these virus claims. Sure, maybe 1 day, maybe an actual virus is technically possible, but there just hasn't been one.
OK, but enough of that - what I meant to say was...
Happy on your Android phone!?!? DAMN YOU, AQUATIC, DAAAAAAMN YOU!!!!!!
