Eh, some freedom are what caused many of the security holes over the years, don't you think?
I'm not saying anything against the SD Card, or the different browsers. I'm normally the "it ain't about who did it first, it's about who did it right". Which is why many of us on iOS don't really care about customization.
Space? We have our Media from iTunes + iCloud, it's practically too easy. Browsers? Specifying Chrome or Safari, they're best suited for native web design on mobile platforms.
My developer ego is getting ahead of me. I respect Android, just don't like how it's being developed.
To a degree that freedom has caused alot of Android's problems, I'll give you that. However, it's more todo how it is developed then how customisable it is. Android is too chaotic and it pays the price for it.
I can understand that, if it works well why change it right? I can respect that.
For me the cloud is not the answer. However, as I live in a country where you only get tiny usage allowances (but pay a fortune for them) and get charged like a wounded bull for going over those allowances, I tend to avoid it while I can. That isn't to say I don't use the cloud or appreciate it, as I do, just don't want to rely on it too heavily on a mobile device due to said reasons.
Anyway, I'm not trying to downplay iOS/iPad. If you like it and it suits your needs then that is great I'm just saying why I don't like it as much and why I personally prefer Android.
