Itunes on Android? Lets take a poll?
So recently Android out performed Apple in market share, ect... Now, I foresee a future where Apples will be looking for new revenue streams becuase of their competition. So What makes most sense would be to port itunes to Android! But when is this going to happen?!?!?! Would you want itunes on your device? Lets take a poll. Yah or nay?

Heck no would I want iTunes on my Evo. Anything that Apple makes comes with balls and chains. No thank you to that. If anything, I would rather Google develop their own music service with someone like Amazon.(AT&T) Nokia 5110 (2001)-->(Cingular) Nokia 6102i (2007)-->(T-Mobile)Blackberry Pearl 8120 (2008)-->(T-Mobile) Blackberry Bold 9700 (2010)-->(T-Mobile) T-Mobile G2 (2010) (Sprint/Nextel) HTC Evo 4G White (2011)-->(AT&T)HTC Inspire(2011)-->(AT&T)HTC Vivid(2012)-->(Verizon)Motorola DROID RAZOR (2012) (Verizon) Samsung Galaxy S3(2012)

I am fully against Apple and am glad that Android has caught and surpassed in the smartphone space, but I doubt that they will be needing to break down the walled garden to get some more revenue streams. Keep in mind that they are currently dominating the tablet and media player spaces and Android will have to work pretty hard to catch up to (if they even try in media players).
When I got my Evo and ditched the old iPhone 3G that I was using, I cheered at the thought of ditching iTunes for good. There is no way that I would want that bloated ecosystem on an Android device. I think that Google will should work harder to fully flesh out the music integration that they demoed at I/O last year.

Um, no, I don't want iTunes on my Evo. As far as I know, in order to add songs/movies to your iTunes-connected device, you have to add them to your iTunes account on your computer, and then sync with your device... I'd much rather just drag and drop whatever I want onto my phone's SD card directly.

I would LOVE Itunes for my Android! Hate Apple all you want, they are still the leaders when it comes to digital music distribution and organization. Though, i'd rather buy my music from Amazon, Itunes is THE industry standard for music organization.
I'm a DJ and sometimes I really On my Itunes playlist to find music (Sometimes). Till then I'm good with using Double Twist!Follow Me on Twitter @DjSayWut

Hmm, I have to laugh at this one. More specifically, laugh at all the knee jerk reactions to anything apple. Ignoring the obvious infinitesimally small likelyhood of such an event, i would say yes!
Why would the answer be anything else? All I saw was: Would you like android to gain a EXTREMELY popular, fairly well rounded music player? Who can argue with that? Anything else is just irrational hate. Even if you don't use it yourself, just the fact that every other music player, including the one that you did use, would feel the need to step their game up would be a win-win for everyone. But then again, that's just me and those unfortunate fancy reasoning skills I've gotten used to... should have just hit my APPLE=BAD button that comes with the evo..

I consider dragging and dropping absolutely stone age compared to a good sync feature. Ymmv.
