Hi Steve

Then we are completely agreed, that's exactly how I see it as well, (smile).
I can only comment on an Android tablet though, not a phone.


Kind Regards,

Jackie Cairns

Hi Jackie,

I didn't disagree, I wrote in an earlier message, that if you just want a
simple out of the box experience with little room for customisation, then it
has to be the iPhone.  However, if you want to be able to manipulate
ringtones without iTunes etc, then Android is the way to go.

All the best

Steve

Hi Eleanor

I like the Nexus 7 tablet.  The Talkback speech is very good.  I still
prefer Apple over Android though, probably because I am just more used to
it.  I sold my iPad to finally get to grips with the iPhone, which I now
have.

Of course it is subjective, but I can't help feeling that iOS out of the box
is easier than Android.  Steve and others will doubtless disagree, but that
is my take on it.


Kind Regards,

Jackie Cairns

How are you getting on with the Nexis 7 Jackie?  More favourable than the
iPad I wonder.
