Friday Poll: All Android or Do You Mix Up Platforms?

(Feel free to click around the Lytro image if you are bored.)

This morning, our boy Ron wrote up his opinion on the “fanboy” situation that plagues almost every tech community. Whether you own an iOS or Android or Blackberry device, someone is bound to call you a fanboy because you chose one over the other. At one time, Apple users were pegged as being the worst fanboys, but since, it has grown to include other platforms as well. Hell, even in the Android game you are starting to see groups of users band together as “Nexus fanboys” and/or “Motorola fanboys.” It really doesn’t matter what piece of technology is in your hand or on your desk, someone is bound to have a problem with it and thus refer to you as biased or as a fanboy.

But during his piece, Ron talked about removing the blinders and embracing “good” technology overall rather than siloing yourself into one platform or brand. I’ll just say that as someone who runs an Android site and has dedicated his life to the platform, even I find myself branching out to other areas of tech until I find something I truly love. For example, my favorite tablet to this day is still probably the Blackberry Playbook. Had that sucker actually had an app ecosystem, I probably still be using it. On a computer level, brace yourself, I use an iMac and a Macbook Pro. I’ve been through every version of Windows since the early 90s and in the last year made the switch to OSX. So far, it has been a breath of fresh air.

So I’m just curious, since I know that many of you own iPads and other non-Android products, what your mix of technology is. Windows or Mac? iPad or Android tablet? Anything else?

  • gotta mix it up! android phone for my business line, iphone 4s for my personal line, and a Samsung series 7 slate windows 8 tablet.. who says you have to choose??

  • Droid RAZR MAXX, Dell Windows 7 PC, the “new” iPad… Just all over the place. I am happy with the phone and tablet, but computer is showing its age. I will likely stick with Windows for computing, though. I hate buying apps for both Android and Apple

    iMac – Sony Vaio – iPad 2 – Samsung Fascinate – iPhone 4S – Xyboard 10.1 – Apple TV (2) I like it all.

  • Sour_Diesel

    I’m all mixed up. Desktop is iMac, iPad, Transformer Prime is what I am on now, iPod Touch, Windows Laptop, and G-Nex on my hip. I’m basically a person who chooses tech on capability not just who its made by.

  • jpv190

    Mac Book Pro 13″.. Xoom Tablet -Wifi only.. and Samsung’s Nexus S 4G ( If I had the money I would buy an iphone instead though).. And Xoom beats up the IPad..

  • Used to own a Macbook. Switched to a Samsung PC this spring. I really like Windows 7. I use an iPod Classic with iTunes still. Of course I rock a D4 (still wish there was more of a dev community for it). I can appreciate iOS and WP7, but nothing beats the openness and customizability of Android.

    • Don’t actually own a tablet yet, but I’m liking the Asus and Acer ICS tablets

  • SolipsisticPsychologist

    I currently own a HTC Rezound, Galaxy Tab 10.1, Windows 7 laptop and an Apple iMac. As far as phones and tablets go, well you couldn’t pay me to use the closed iPhone and iPad systems. But despite not having some of my favorite Windows applications available, I think I will always prefer using my iMac for all of my computer needs. That is until Apple, in all their idiotic greed driven wisdom, decide to implement Gatekeeper on all of their computers and ramp it up and eventually get rid of an “opt-out” feature. Well if my current iMac becomes so obsolete over time that I might be forced to upgrade to a new operating system that runs Gatekeeper or a more sinister incarnation, will will most definitely be the final Apple computer I allow in my house.

    If Microsoft decides to follow suit and reimplement their already failed version of Gatekeeper, then it will be hello Linux and a big “EFF YOU!” to Microsoft and Apple. Either I control what is on my computer’s or no one does.

    Switch between an iPhone 4S and a one x…apple tv 3..MacBook Air and an iPad 3..apples ecosystem is just too convenient to integrate all my apple products…had a transformer tab but sold that..the app selection is what mostly keeps me on iOS

  • I just recently got a Blackberry Playbook at a conference for free and I was shocked. It is actually pretty sweet. Except for the obvious lack of apps, I think the Calendar, Email, and photo gallary apps are awesome and blow away anything I have seen on the Android.

    The Playbook 2.0 OS and the BBX(10) OS are going to be sweet I think. But then again I liked WebOS to πŸ™

    Other than that I have 3 Android devices and Fedora 16 laptop and PC.

  • baldypal

    Windows 7 PC and laptop. 2 Android phones. 1 Android tablet. (Wife’s iPad 2, like oil down my throat to say that). 1 Android MOTOACTV. And a partridge in a pear tree.

  • Korey Page

    GNex, New iPad, xoom, and windows 7 laptop. I like using both mobile OS’s and I wouldn’t mind getting the iPhone later this year if the LTE sim card matches up. Or whatever decent phone comes out late this year.

    I mainly love the google ecosystem and like others have mentioned I can get it on iOS as well. Not up to the standards that is on android but serves it’s purpose. I just get tired of things quickly and I like to mix it up every so often.

  • VZ iPhone 4S, GSM GNex on TMo, MacBook Air, iPad 3 4G LTE, Lenovo U300, iMac Dual Boot OSX / Windows 7. Would try an Android tablet but so far haven’t found one I like.

    I love Android and am very happy with my devices, but iTunes is still the best music player,, store, podcast catalog, and internet radio application in the whole damn shooting match.,

  • Zacharypt

    iMac that dual boots into OSX and XP, Macbook Pro, iPad 3, Xoom Family Edition (Wife’s) iPhone for work, 2x Galaxy Nexus LTE (mine rooted), and I still have an acer netbook i boot up every now and again (mostly used for table leveling)

  • ericl5112

    One of each: android, iOS, Windows Phone in both phones and tablets (well, not a windows 8 tablet yet, but when they come out).

    I develop for them though, I probably wouldn’t do that for personal use. For personal use, the sim is in the android 99% of the time, and I usually pick up my Transformer or (recently) Tab 2 7.0. I even use the Transformer as my sole laptop. I do have a windows desktop though to program from, and a mac at work for iOS dev.

  • Android phone and Tablet; Qosmio laptop

  • I own a windows 7 laptop, a galaxy nexus, and an Ipad 3. Android tablets aren’t that great yet. If the nexus tablet is good I’ll sell my ipad. πŸ™‚

  • Alexander Garcia

    I mix it up. My current smartphone is a Droid RAZR Maxx. My current laptop is the Samsung Series 9 running W7. I would never get a tablet… but if I had to get one, it would be the “New” iPad. I LOVE Android smartphones, but Android tablets are a bit “meh” for me. Cheers.

  • bobbymay1

    Gnex, Macbook Pro (running OSX and Win7), Nook Color with ICS build (doesn’t work too well), and an iPod Classic. I had an iPod Touch before, but both buttons on it stopped working. Multiple platforms is perfectly fine with me.

  • iPhone 4, Xoom Wi-Fi, Macbook

  • SecurityNick

    Mobile-wise, I’m Android all the way. Galaxy Nexus phone, Motorola Xoom (WiFi), which thanks to Droid Life turning me on to CloudOn, it’s finally a fantastic work device. Of course, my work PC is Windows, I’m typing this on my Windows 7 PC at home (which also has an Ubuntu Partition that I use from time to time). My wife on the other hand has gotten entrenched in the Apple-verse. She has an iPhone 4S, an iMac, and a MacBook. I recently bought us an Apple TV, which I honestly was expecting it to do more, but it’s nice how it ties the whole user experience from an Apple point of view together, something I know Google is working on, but haven’t quite gotten there yet. I’m starting the process to build a Media PC and get rid of Satellite, but still trying to figure all that out. I really wish there was a good Android/Google solution to that. Everything that I’ve read up on Google TV just doesn’t quite seem to deliver on what a true Media PC could do (same as the Apple TV can’t do that). If anyone has any suggestions on that, I’d welcome it. But back to the user experience, I think it really makes a difference if you are entrenched in a particular product. If you use a lot of Google services/programs, then Android is the way to go, if you have a Mac, well those devices just really work well together.

  • tomgillotti

    Android phones and tablets. Windows desktop and laptops. As much as they piss me off sometimes, I wouldn’t own anything else.

  • Android and Windows 7

    Galaxy Nexus is everything anyone could ever ask for in a smart phone, mobile computing device that fits in your pocket. Android is Amazing, Google’s services are what really makes it a winner for me. Gmail (personal and g-apps), calendar, contacts, maps, nav, music, pictures/picasa, G Talk… even g+ is becoming more useful.

    Windows 7 Ultrabook (Lenovo U300s in my case) has changed my higher need computing… all day battery, super light and thin, easy to carry around, the keyboard is awesome for typing a lot, instant sleep resume… I really love my OG Transformer, but my Ultrabook has replaced the need for a tablet for me.

    Google and Microsoft are similar in their platforms, giving the end user choices in both hardware and software. Choices that allow us to be in control, giving us the ability for true individualism. I want Windows Phone to do well, but for me Android meets my needs and is better. I want the Chromebook to do well and am interested in it, but for me a full powered Win7 laptop is really what I need.

  • SueWest

    I have a mixed bag of gadgets. I love good tech & find pluses and minuses with all of the platforms I use. My main phone is a VZW GNex but I also have an iPhone 4. The iPhone really is getting a bit dated though and it is so tiny. At this point the iPhone mainly acts as a remote (HTPC, Google TV & AirPlay). I also have a new iPad but am in the process of transferring to the new Transformer Pad and will pass the iPad on to my Mom (she wants a larger screen than her Nook). Computers are also mixed bag with Windows 7 HTPC, a MacBook Air and a MacBook Pro that dual boots Windows 7 and Lion. I love all my gadgets and they all have their uses. I do have to add that the Android community is by far the most helpful and friendly. I am very proud be a part of it, if only as an end-user.

  • brando56894

    I’m Linux all the way baby. On my desktop I run Chakra Linux (only dual-booted because college stuff required Windows only apps that didn’t run well in Wine), and both my tablet (TF101) and phone (HTC Rezound) both run Android. I used to hate Macs until I was forced to use them for 3-6 hours three times a week for college summer classes and found out that they actually worked better and were less annoying than Windows, which I had used previously for 15 years. Not to mention they integrate a lot better than Windows since they both have Unix roots. One of my favorite things was the ability to remotely runs apps (over SSH) without having to install anything extra. Would I get a Mac computer? Maybe if I was made of money, would I ever get an iPhone? Probably not. Whereas they’re beautiful devices, they seem to fragile to me and I’m not a fan of them being closed-source. If you don’t like the way something works or if there’s a bug, you can’t fix it. You have to wait for Apple to issue an update for it.

    Mixed up. iMac 27″ with Lion, Moutain Lion, and Windows XP partitions with an Exchange Server that my company runs on (with Office 365 as a back up and Sharepoint workspace). I personally use one ATT and one VZW iPhone 4, with a Google Play GNex on the $30 T-Mo UL data/text plan (which is a freakin’ great combo), and an old VZW Pre Plus (running WebOS 2.0.3) for notifications of email & messages. And for keeping up with stuff, I have a VZW LTE iPad 3 with a VZW unlimited data SIM in it.

    I am checking out a couple of Win 7 laptops and waiting for Apple to announce its new laptop lineup, and looking at one or two Incredible 4G devices when they come out to put on my two out-of-contract LTE lines.

    Most people are such fanboys. Give Windows Phone a freakin chance.
    I absolutely love my GNex (except that I’m still running 4.0.2).
    But no manufacturer beats Nokia’s build quality, so I tried out the news Windows Phone and its awesome.
    Best 2 phones Ive ever owned, and I definitely prefer the Lumia 900.
    Give it a chance, if not just return it. Plus it’s really in sync with my Windows 7 laptop, and will continue to build with Windows 8 rollout. Be open minded, give it a try. You can;t go wrong πŸ™‚

    • brando56894

      My friend had an old Sidekick and finally decided to upgrade to a smartphone, she asked me what she should get an obviously I told her to get an Android device. She came in a few days later with WP7 and I asked her how she liked it and her response was “I hate it!”. It took her like 2 hours to figure out how to even get pictures off of there. Just like Apple, you need to use some specific software to do everything with it. If I want to get something off of my Rezound all I have to do is connect it to a pc and copy and paste! Also I’ve heard that the Windows Marketplace has a very small selection of apps compared to Apple’s AppStore and Google Play.

      • windows phone uses the zune software. yes it a application like itunes that you have to manage your media in.. where its different than itunes is that it runs flawlessly. i’ve been using it for 4 years and love it more than windows media player and xbmc. on the app side of things they only have about 32000 apps with about 500 being added daily. yes its not as many as android or ios but its still alot. also windows phone is incredibly responsive it does take a while to learn how to use tho because it is different. dont get me wrong i absolutely love android but im going to be switching to windows phone because in my opinion it is a better operating system. i dont use alot of apps… and dont really need to root anymore because i dont need wireless tether because foxfi does it better.

        just my 2 cents

  • JDS

    thinkpad, android, ipod. never giving up the ipod

  • Geeks on Hugs

    If I can run Android on it, I choose Android. I’m a developer and I even attempted to do my development on Android. It CAN be done, but it’s not optimal yet. So I still have Windows on my old laptop which I develop on (via RDP on my Xoom). I also have a netbook dual boot with Windows and Linux. Any PCs I get in the future will be Linux if not Android and I plan to have a Linux box soon as my remote host for development.

    For me it’s not because of the technology, but rather the philosophy. I don’t want a corporation making my decisions for me. I love the open android ecosystem. One fo the complaints people have for Android is a major reason why I Love it: FRAGMENTATION. Fragmentation means that Google does not control it. It’s wonderful. We each have what we like and yet the system is still cohesive enough that we can run a wide variety of common apps.

    I do agree about the fan boy nonesense. I think some fun rivalry is ok, kidding around, but people really take it too far and act like jerks about it. That’s just crazy and I’m embarrassed for them.

    I went from a flip phone directly due a GNex, so have never had a non-Android smartphone. I’ve always been with Windows for computers, but also have a Macbook Pro (paid for by work so that I can mess around with Mac OS, since I provide some tech support in my department). I use Windows computers for everyday use, and don’t use the Mac that much.

    My first smart phone was a Treo Palm Os, then Windows Mobile, now Android. PC’s have strictly been windows, but I have to admit, jumping on the ginormous mac at BB is pretty awesome! I’ve been less than thrilled with the durability/build of my last two Dell’s, so I could see a jump to a mac for the next one – I just don’t know how far they’ve come w/playing well with other systems (android, windows, office, etc). I honestly enjoyed my Samsung WM phone (funny, I forget the name) and would consider WM again, even though they’re locked down similar to Apple, since I’m on Exchange at work and the sync is the best. I wouldn’t trade my TPrime tablet for any other tablet right now.

    All Android on the phones – all Motorola, too. I’ve been through the Droid, DroidX and currently run with the Bionic. I switched to OSX from Ubuntu/Windows in 2010 and never looked back! I run with an iMac and MacBook Pro for desktop computing. For tablets I’ve run through an iPad, iPad2 and I’m currently on a VZW 4g enabled iPad HD and loving it. I use a Kindle for an eReader, an iPod Touch/Nano for music player and I think that is pretty much it. Oh yeah, I did pick up the webtop dock for my Bionic when it was on sale for $90 a few weeks back but I find it really lacking.

  • I gave Android tablets a chance for over a year, until I tried the new iPad. While iOS is mind-numbingly simple and I’d rather use Android on tablets, that iPad screen is a real killer and things sure are smooth. At the same time, my Epic 4G Touch (SGSII) runs smooth as butter as well and also has an excellent screen, so Android trumps iOS on smartphones, IMO. And Win 7 is the best full-size OS on the market, so that’s what runs on my HP Envy notebook. Bottom line: all current platforms have their strengths and weaknesses, and so folks should pick what works best for them and forget about the rest of the shenanigans.

  • I only care for functionality, capability, price, and companies with corporate policies/tendencies that I approve of. Design, brand name, manufacturer, carrier, and apps are irrelevant to me. I refuse to buy products for the sake of a sticker…

  • It’s not about iOS vs Android vs Windows. It’s Google vs Apple vs Microsoft. You have to pick one ecosystem. I don’t see how people mix and match ecosystems. I’m all in with Google’s many awesome services. I’m not going to buy an iOS or Windows Phone device and have access to none of those services.

    I do have a Windows 7 PC, but that is a traditional OS and doesn’t anchor itself in any ecosystem. Windows 8, however, is heavily reliant on Microsoft’s ecosystem, which is unfortunate.

    • CopierITGuy

      I’m with @google-9e66d161daeccef81687c8ed2eafa4c9:disqus . I love the Google ecosystem. My work pc requires Microsoft products in order for me to do some of my job (Windows), but other than that, I use Google services on it (Chrome browser {with about 2 dozen apps}, Docs, Gmail, Voice, etc.) My mobile world is all Android. Still rockin’ the HTC T’Bolt and the OG Transformer tablet – use both for work and home.

      Never been a fan of Apple products – never even owned an iPod. My T’Bolt (and previously my OG Droid) is my iPod-type device, rockin’ Google Play Music! While I can appreciate their pioneering of the touch-screen smartphone, Google has way outdone them since joining the party.

      • I’m fine with iOS as a piece of software, but I need my native/integrated Gmail, Drive, Calendar, Voice, Gtalk, and Maps support. You can sort of get all that on iOS, but it’s all janky.

    • I’m buying a Mac this year. Mostly because I can’t stand Windows, and I need a powerful OS to run alongside Linux. I can’t use Linux for my creative uses until we get Adobe CS and for my gaming needs until we get Steam. Everything else, Linux wins.

      • Well, at least on the Photoshop/Adobe front, you can get them working on Linux with about 10 minutes of work. I have CS6 running on Lubuntu right now and it runs just as well, if not better, than the installation I had on Windows 7. If you want to know how, look into Wine and Play On Linux.

        • Hmm. OK. I did try this ages ago and it didn’t work too well. I’ll try again, thanks!

      • Don’t bother with Linux. Its a hideous mess when running pretty much anything. Get the Mac and bootcamp along Windows πŸ˜›

        • I’ve used Linux for over 5 years and am completely comfortable with it.

    • I hear you. PArt of me only buys an Apple Device because I have soo much locked up under DRM (yes I pay for music not porn) It’s nice to see how the other half live from time to time. I just don’t know how they do it with such a small screen.

      • You know that the music your purchase in iTunes is now all DRM Free right? Sure computers have to be authorized still, but my music purchased through iTunes all plays on my G-Nexus with no issues.

    I mix platforms from MS, Android, iOS and whatever else I like at the time. I see communities being overrun with pedantic schoolboys who act like if you don’t un-categorically agree with their prized possession, you’re scum. Part of the reason why I peruse forums (this or any other) is to learn the latest news or tips/tricks, etc. about a product. I tend to click away with more disgust than before from the barrage of negativity that is pervasive on these sites. The good thing is that there are always at least a few decent, adult, and mature folks that still have not been diluted by the punks of the day. It’s those people that make the forums tolerable. In the case of this forum, the guys like Kellex who, different opinion or not, never seem to make anyone feel unwelcome, give the site the credit and validity that it has. Funniest thing is you never see the punks talking smack at events, cuz they know they’d walk around holding a towel to their noses. πŸ™‚

    MP3 player is Zune (I use the subscription service and love it)
    Desktop is custom built PC with Win7
    Laptop is Vista (couldn’t be bothered to pay for an upgrade, hardly use the laptop)

    If I owned a tablet it would be Android 4.x. My GF has an iPad2 and to me it’s like an oversized iPhone with just the one button. Yes it has soft buttons for stuff like “back” in the browser just like ICS, but to me it’s more intuitive to have that stuff at the bottom where your hands will more naturally be while holding the device.

    My ultimate dream would be if MS wrote a Zune app for Android πŸ™‚

      Plus one to zune on android. I’ve settled down with rhapsody to cut down on multiple devices.

        Hmmm, not bad I just checked that out. Zune still has a key point over it unfortunately. For the same price, you get to “buy” 10 songs per month for “free” with credits from your subscription fee. Of course, if you’re like me and forget to use them, or there’s nothing worth using them on that month, then it’s a waste lol.

    I stick with android because I know how it works and I like the customization. I’ll admit I’ve not so much as touched a WP7 phone, but from what I’ve seen of it’s advertising, it doesn’t appeal to me, and I feel like I’d grow to hate the huge tiles, instead of the option to use smaller icons (my homescreens are crammed full of frequently used apps)

    I’ve used iPh*nes but I’ve found that they’re not very intuitive to use for me. Even if I liked the iPh*ne I’ve sworn off any apple product (no matter how magical it may be) due to their lean towards litigation over innovation. Competition is good for the consumer, and they seem to be doing everything they can to limit competition.

      Respect man, I always like what you have to say on here. Usually sensible choices with tech means sensible blog posts about tech. You are an example of that. For me the last 4 years it’s always been mainly Android phones and Win7/OSX/Ubuntu for computing. I had a jailbroken iPhone for a month or two last year but it still felt so limited, almost like a toy. When it comes to tech, I feel like everyone should try as much as they can to truly find what they like.

      • ddevito


        I had an iPhone 3G – loved it, then got bored with it. I jailbroke it, and ran so many jailbroken apps and features it ran slower than a windows mobile phone (that’s CE not the new ones).

It’s free, way more configurable and has pretty much all the features of the previous two, unless you actually like to buy your media lol I have all my media stored on my Linux box and have it shared via UPnP to XBMC running in my Living Room. Didn’t cost me a dime either. πŸ™‚

        I have OpenELEC running on my Pi – it’s okay, but I’m waiting for a better port. The Revue sucks at HD video – the Apple TV is much better, but it’s the iPad’s best friend – AirPlay alone is the reason I bought it.
