5 Things Android Better Than iPhone

1. You don't need iTunes to activate your Android

Why do I should get some bloatware application installed on my computer just kid use my phone? If you want to the store today and buy an iPhone, you can’t make a single call until you’ve “activated” it using iTunes – so that you have to download and install a desktop app just to make your phone work like a phone. Even Windows Mobile didn’t require you to install Active Sync!

With any Android, you buy it, turn it on and configure it, and you’re done.

2. App Freedom

With the iPhone, if you need to run an app you will need to get it from the App Store (unless it’s jailbroken). The means every legitimate app must be approved by Apple, and is subject to take-down without notice.

With few exceptions (AT&T), Android phones are able to install and run “non-Market apps”. Just like Windows Mobile, you can grab an installer (.cab for Windows Mobile, .apk for Android), run it, and you’ve got the app, even if it was “rejected” from inclusion out there.

3. Alternates to built-in apps

Don’t like the browser that comes with Android? No problem, you may get any one of the others from the Market.

Want another SMS client? Visit the Android Market and take your pick.

With Apple, if you don’t like what comes built-in, you’re out of luck. They don’t permit any app that “duplicates built-in features” – even if the app does it better.

4. Carrier Options

With iPhone, if you’re a U.S. customer, you’re pretty much stuck with AT&T. Of course you can buy an unlocked iPhone and use T-Mobile with it, but you’re limited to EDGE speeds.

While it’s true this may change sometime soon, we all live in the present. At present you can buy an Android phone for T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon.

5. Google Voice

Google Voice is the single largest threat to mobile carriers to date. With Google Voice, providing that you are connected to a network (WiFi, cellular data, etc.) text messages are free from your Google Voice number, and also the latest version they come through immediately.

Download: Metal Detector App for WinMo - Beta

Metal Detector application for Windows mobile that use build-in electronic compass on HTC HD2 as metal detector.
Current status of this app:
This is far from finished, but as we both are quite busy at the moment, we'd like to share the current beta of this app.

All gauges are fully functional. Clicking sound and vibration working too. You may turn them on/off using the corresponding buttons on the left.
To exit the app, use the lower right button.

The camera button has a new meaning as of v0.2.0.0:
It enables a test mode, where sensor readings are simulated. Use the sliders to advance the main/aux gauges

Todo's we're aware of:
- artwork needs final polishing
- sliders do slide but have no effect whatsoever, temporarily used for debugging
- screenshot (camera) button switches debugging mode (this will change in a final release)
- detection algorithm still crappy
- sound and vibration status not saved on exit
Download beta version Metal Detector from XDA.
