    Meanwhile Android is getting its ass kicked by their own users.


    Droid X not only is dealing with defective screens and a security issue but users are now reporting mysterious problems with flaky wifi in the new flagship phone for Verizon.


    Some other Android users are disturbed by a new Android development that bloatware which can not be removed is now appearing on new Android handsets.
    Bloatware is also known as crapware and is there in an attempt to make even more money off the poor mobile user tied to a contract.

    Good reads still love android just hate manufactures that cripple it, let google handle the android os ui people. Everyone else does a horrible job except htc with there sense ui it's not that bad. I wish every android phone was like my nexus one!

    Do you think they will ever surpass the demand on the iPad and iPhone? This reminds me of when the wii first came out, the hardest thing to come by for like it's first year. By next years iPad how many do you think will have been sold?

    HOT NEWS: Apple could sell 1,000,000 devices this weekend!

    Apple moving through iPad, iPhone 4 waiting lists? Could sell 1,000,000 devices

    from Boy Genius Report by Boy Genius

    One of our Apple sources has been communicating some internal Apple information to us, and from what we’ve been told, this weekend could be big. Currently, if you go to an Apple retail store and can’t find an iPad or iPhone 4, Apple will offer the ability to reserve one for you. These are “Priority Lists†and contain your name and information in addition to the specific device and configuration you want. These lists allow Apple to determine how to manage their channel inventory or possibly ramp up on production. Here’s the big news we’ve been told… Apple is apparently incredibly interested in clearing out these waiting lists, and if our tipster is correct, they’re aiming to do it by this weekend. We have been told that stores have lists that could be anywhere from 500 to 1500 or more customers waiting for iPhones, and anywhere from 250 to 750 customers waiting for iPads. Apparently all Apple stores have asked employees for an “all hands on deck†approach this weekend, somewhat similar to that of Apple product launch days. We have even been informed that Apple stores might open early on Sunday to accommodate extra traffic. Lastly, our source let us know that clearing out these lists could result in the sale of up to an additional 500,000 to 1,000,000 iOS devices in just a few short days.
    Thanks, Lindsey S.!
