You can change the background pics + lockscreen, its been there for some firmwares now. Have fun with your rooting and unresponsive phone.


    Oh and,



    That answers it all. +1 to that.
    A theme is not just the background.


    How is Android outselling Apple's iPhone exactly? Look carefully at how many the iPhone has sold each quarter compared to the Android phones ROFL. Last I saw, iPhone sells around 16 million, while Android sells 1-2 million each phone.
    You answered the question right there. There are many android phones. 1-2 million each phone adds up.

    Companies make more Android phones than they can sell ROFLLL. Thats why their phones are trash, they don't stick to one-two phones which are superior, but instead make ****** phones constantly thinking they will make money.
    What does this even mean? The phones are trash because there is too many of them? Everyone has different tastes, giving more options is better, not worse. Some want a qwerty, some want thin and sleek. iPhone gives only 1 option. And if the companies weren't making money, do you really think they would continue to make more phones?

    Android will always be trash, until they can fully utilize their hardware and software capabilities. Like I said before, I cannot stand phones which have better hardware but multi touch capabilities are pure ****. Apple = butter multi touch, Android = Crap, jerky unresponsive. Which one is better?
    Android does not make multi-touch phones. Android is an OS. Motorola, HTC etc. make multi-touch phones. That's like saying you hate Windows 7 because your Dell notebook is flimsy. Dell is Dell. Windows is Windows. Android is Android.

    Ease of use/better media player etc. are all opinions. I know this is an Apple-fan forums but there is still be a clear difference between fact and opinion.

    This is why you need an open system:

    -homescreen replacement
    -widgets
    -PSX emulator, GBC emulator, etc
    -REAL multitasking (not just pause it)
    -open a file (from a file manager) with an array of apps; not just what the dev says is okay (or apple as a matter of fact)
    -make ringtones right on the devices without needing itunes
    -lock every app on the devices with a swiping motion, no more pins to remember
    -access internal memory
    -copy any text from anywhere on the screen using OCR (app is called copy-paste it)
    -dropbox upload ANY file you want; no restrictions
    -multiple email apps, you pick which is best for you. thats goes for contacts, photos, calendar, you name it.
    -many browsers to choose from, not just two
    -voice to text input
    -alternate keyboards (thumb keyboard, smart keyboard,better keyboard) for those who dont have the ideal hand size to wield an apple product
    -return apps in 15 minutes
    -download ANY file right from MY browser; i dont need goodreader to do it

    PS- I dont even need to be rooted or what you guys call "jailbroken" to do it. I can do it right out of the box.

    You guys may get me on a couple apps, but you WONT get me on all. peace.

    flame on!

    Considering on paper that some high end android phones have better specs than the iphone 4 for example, they don't seem to run as smooth. it isn't a simple combination of putting the best of the best hardware together if A. the hardware doesn't work well with other hardware, and B. the operating system isn't built BASED on that hardware and optimized for it. that is why an iphone 4 with less impressive specs on paper seems to perform better than the highest end android phones.

    look at it this way, most macs run better out of the box than a custom built high end desktop hackintosh with os x on it. the hardware and software are carefully selected and sometimes custom built for a specific purpose and to work well with the other peripherals.

    Actually it is about open systems VS closed systems which goes hand in hand with AppleVSAndroid. Android is getting better and better, but Apple has less bugs with their quality control. A process that Android is implementing right now.

    Well I guess that makes sense but usually when people start this it has nothing to do with the article at all.

    I don't see the big deal about one company criticizing another company, but when it is reported that it was a "rampage" it seems ludicrous to me.

    No need to call people anything(Aimed at Everybody). As for this comment it was Linksys(Cisco).


    iPhone technology previously sold by Linksys is now available from Netgear without the iPhone trademark. The Linksys CIT400 iPhone is now available as the Netgear SPH200D.

    If apple opens up it's platform were going to here that apple is monopolizing the market any yada yada yada. (((If it's not broke don't fix it))), I'm tired of people complaining and dumping on the top dog cause there trying to be the top dog & since you never see two football, basketball, baseball, hockey or any pro sports team share the prize cup or what ever there competing for.
