Hardly the main one. Personally, I find widgets useless. Even MS learned that less with Vista. Next, trying to squeeze a desktop metaphor into a tablet or worse a phone, in my opinion, ranks up there with converging the PC and tablet and phone.
Android is incredibly fragmented and the vendors unreliable with respect to updating Android. Let's see how fast all the tablet models get updated. What is Asus' incentive of updated the transformers. It sold 80k units, so few that they were unwilling to fix the bad GPS. They issued dongles.
It goes without saying that tablet apps continue to be a failure. I would *never* use a banking app on Android. In my opinion, it is too risky. Or to put it another way, is the risk of getting a compromised app worth the gain. Not to me.
Going back to how smooth it is, they say that each release and each release they still have to fix it. You willing to gamble on this now? I'm not.
Resale value. Nuff said.
I've said it before, I'm pretty hardcore. I'm a professional development and Android just doesn't appeal to me. Well, to be honest, it appeals to my hardcoredness, but my not my common sense. I'm busy and life is too short to futz around with these devices. I futz around with Windows because it adds to my bottom line. I get paid to write software and if the customers wants Windows, I tolerate Windows. But when it comes to my devices, that I use for me, I'd rather have something I can use, then pass down to my wife, then kids, etc.
That simply isn't Android, in my opinion.
