Great post and really interesting to see how Google are evolving Android. The usability of Android Honeycomb for a non-techie user is the thing that has held Android tablets back compared to the slick nature of iOS on the iPad. Hopefully Ice Cream Sandwich will resolve a lot of those issue whilst still allowing a technically minded user the opportunity to configure the OS as they like.

Android CAN be used as a simple app launcher if people want to. All the other features that makes it “too complicated for non-techie users” like widgets, live wallpaper, etc. are entirely OPTIONAL.

I told u so.com. “been had this” “Microsoft will have to sew them over…”
What an illierate little person you must be. Ghetto much, ebofonics much? Lemme guess, you have a windows or iPhone and know nothing of android, right? Android is the way of the future. Why bother posting just to run your mouth about negative stuff?
