Just found this posted (June 13th.) on Android forum in regards to "great user experience".Disagree. That would be the beginning of the end to a great user experience....

Take that in your pipe and smoke it, Apple! Google's Ice Cream Sandwich OS won the Gold Prize for best the platform experience at Parsons' 2012 User Experience Awards! Since Android came out it has obviously been the best mobile OS for utility and functionality, always showcasing more features and more useful features than it's competitors, like iOS. However, the one thing that Apple always did well with their OS was to refine the aesthetics and the design of the UI. Google's Android OS struggled to match this, arguably all the way up until about Gingerbread before it started to excel.
Google took things to a whole new level with Ice Cream Sandwich, though, and the results of this contest speak for themselves. Google's new focus on improving the design and user-friendliness of Android has really paid off, and at least for now, and in this particular contest, Android has finally bested the fruity alternative. It will be exciting to see what new improvements they make with Android 5.0! Congratulations Android!
Whilst ICS is quite feature rich, I don't believe it's amounting to a great user experience,
I have a Samsung phone running ICS.
CoPilot hasn't worked for a large amount of people since ICS came out (me included). I've got a few other apps which consistently don't work either. Now whilst this isn't google's fault, i'm sure the fragmentation is causing the developers massive headaches trying to get things working on so many platforms.
Contrast to my iPad and touch, and they just work. The UI may not be as "useful" (e.g. I love the Swiftkey keyboard I have on the phone), but it works with a minimum of fuss.. I'm too busy to be fighting my tech these days...!
Anyone can design a study or get stats that support just about any position they want.
The drug companies have known about this for a long time. I wouldn't think os companies are much different.

2) a "favourites" clipboard list for all the stuff I regularly paste like email addresses!
3) clock, weather, and calculator native IOS apps. Again, just no excuse to exclude them from iPad owners.
