I have only had ios devices since they first came around back in 2007. I honestly don't know very much about Android aside from it's an open platform. Around a couple of years ago I did try switching over to Android, I can't tell you which version it was, but I believe it was Honeycomb. It was an HTC phone, and I had nothing but problems with it from Day 1. It wasn't so much the android platform, it was the phone itself. I'm getting tired of ios. There's nothing wrong with it, I just would like to try something new. I don't know anything about rooting or sideloading apps or anything technical like that, but I'm a geek so if someone would explain to me what exactly "rooting" is, then I could easily learn. The Samsung galaxy S4 honestly looks amazing, and when my current phone (a horrible windows phone, again, I wanted to try something different) contract is up I want to try the Galaxy. I'm in the market for a 7" tablet, and I hear good things about the Nexus 7, but it's also getting an update within the next month I assume, given that the last model came out this time last year. Any other big name android tablets besides the Nexus 7, I know the Kindle Fire HD is but it's a locked down version? Anyway, what makes Android so...different than the ios? I mean to me it seems the same, besides the two different app stores and such.
