Some years ago it looked like Windows for touch devices was dead and it was a two horse race: Android and iOS. I've always hated Android. The reason is simple: it's a POS copy of iOS... like a cheap Chinese knockoff. Really, let's call it for what it is. Grid of icons, blah blah. There's hardly any difference in the way the OSes function. But in practice, Android has the following issues compared to iOS: 1. It's less refined. Everything seems loose and disjointed. 2. The design is outright terrible. Settings for instance. The fonts, the white space... the ugly icons... brutal. 3. The Apps. Again, cheap chinese knockoff of iOS Apps. 4. Performance. Again, cheap chinese knockoff of iOS. Just try pinching and zooming and scrolling. Chop chop chop. 5. Usability. Compared to iOS it's not as easy to use and enters into the world of geek. I design and develop software for a living. I take a lot of pride in doing it, like others. Android is simply a cheap chinese knockoff of iOS, whereas Windows is completely unique. As others have seen, I've been putting the Surface Pro 3 through its paces. Windows 8 Touch blows Android away. Just the pinching and zooming and scrolling is excellent on Windows 8... like iOS. The uniqueness of the OS, the multi-tasking, Web browsing, quality App experience. It's all there in Windows. Android simply doesn't seem to have evolved much like it's stuck. I wonder if others feel the same as me and if Android will start to fade and Windows gain ground. The staleness of Android really hit home with me when I played with a Samsung Tablet in FutureShop over at the lonely Samsung section. I picked it up, touched the screen, and there we go: the same old, tired Android staring at you. It was depressing coming from a Surface Pro 3, something that gives me, in my opinion, such a more rich, deep computing experience.
