Android vs Android

Interesting article here from Slate.com.

The gist is that Android is actually a great mobile OS, and is only blighted by the handset manufacturers and carriers. Well, stop me if we haven’t seen that before. I’ve spent years doing clean installs of Windows to get rid of all the crap-ware pre-installed on consumer PCs. It’s probably fairly obvious that I’m an Apple chap, but I’ve constantly been amazed by how well a clean install of Windows works.

Every time I’ve used an Android phone – generally when a friend is trying to show it off to me – I have put it down/given it back within 30 seconds due to the horrifying software experience (not to mention the generally cheap as shit hardware). But I’d be really interested to try out a pure Google Android phone without the crap.
