The "Alternatives to iOS and iOS Devices" forum is for discussion of non-Apple smartphones and tablets and their operating systems, as well as comparisons with Apple products. After following the discussion in Site and Forums Feedback and weighing the pros and cons, we've created the forum to meet the growing traffic in the iPhone forum, and the growing interest in discussing the competition. We've included iPad competitors here as well, for the sake of consistency. There will of course be situations where a comment is made about another device or system in an iPhone or iPad discussion in the the forums for those devices. That's perfectly fine, as long as the comment is organic in context, and the over-all focus and purpose of the thread clearly is and remains the iPhone/iPad. Threads that don't meet these criteria may be moved to this new forum or deleted by the moderators. Enjoy!
