    Ok, now let's come back to reality 1) A slew of Nexus devices doesn't make any OEM immune to lawsuits. 2) If you tell carriers to go to hell, then how will your device run? The BIG 4 carriers (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and Tmobile) already own the majority of spectrum allocated for mobile tech. A Nexus phone that isn't compatible with one of those networks would never sell. 3) Updates are always nice, but no more OTAs if you tell the carriers to go to hell. That means having to manually apply every single update. 4) "Apple must burn." Yeah, sure, whatever. Let's just degenerate into mindless fanboys because that will make surely make Android a better platform. Without iOS, that HTC Inspire you have with "AOKP ICE COLD SANDWICH ROM" would be a Blackberry at best. And Android would not be as good as it is. Just saying

    The only thing that picture brings to mind is how vanilla the UI is. Would be nice to see something more than just a page of icons on a grid.

    Anytime I see pics like that, it reminds me how much things are swayed tiwards the iPhone.

    The Android device is open to the app drawer, not the home screen. Androids have widgets, and multiple home screens. The fair photo would show home screen vs home screen.

    And if you are just showing the images to base a comparison, sayimg the Android home screen doesn't matter, then the app drawer needs to be open on the first device. After all, app drawers have been around a lot longer than iPhones. My BlackBerry 8830 had an app drawer that would make it look similar when open.

    You know it's not just about what's on the screen. Form factor too. Not saying there wouldn't be keyboard-less slabs if the iPhone didn't exist but the influence is there.

    Umm, we going to hurry up on these supposed "patent settlement" talks?

    Munich Judge Peter Guntz said Motorola had infringed Apple's "overscroll bounce" technology, which enables users to move documents over the screen of their device and let them bounce back to the centre after releasing their fingers.
    Assuming appeals by Motorola, recently acquired by Google, are rejected and Apple chooses to enforce the court's order, devices such as the Droid Razr could be recalled.

    I'm beginning to think that "settlement talk" is just posturing by Google.

    I'm sick of this lawsuit stuff. I have no beef with apple other than that.

    I just ordered my wife a new iPhone 5. She's been using my old razr. She told me a girl at work was bragging about the new ios6 that if someone calls you, you can send them a text message. I told her that she could do that on the razr. She didn't know.

    My point is yes Samsung copied some of apples things but apple copied Android also by their pull down notification tray and the direct text.

    I like iOS but apple needs to chill with the banning of smart phones and lawsuits.
