Its not really that surprising, but its impressive. Maybe those capitalist pigs over in the land of Macs and iPhones will rethink their strategy when pushing through an unfinished product (iphone 4).

If there were a good "Android touch" mp3 player Apple might not charge an extra $100 to upgrade from 8gb to 32gb. It costs them about $15 more but they charge you $100.

Good to hear, I'm looking forward to swapping to the Android platform for my next smartphone. At the moment I've given in to the big Apple with a 3GS, won't touch the iPhone 4.
