The Ben NanoNote and future NanoNotes are marketed to people that care
about the quality of the NanoNote in their lives. For those who want
best-in-class tech specs, I suggest Android devices, or iPhone/iPad.
Or get a Ben and discover why the Ya is worth the wait :-)
I have been wanting to ask about Qi's stance on Android for some time, and I don't intend to go off on a tangent, but it seems like android is OK? A lot of people equate it with Linux, is that a fair statment? From what I see, I tend not to like it, but maybe it's just aversion to the unfamiliar.
In terms of Free software, it looks like android is inferior to Qi-hardware/Gnu/Linux because 3.0 is proprietary. I don't think that is ever supposed to be the case at Qi.
I'm sure the ipad/phone are worse in that regard.
Also, I read something about qi's mission being to demonstrate "the proof that community development is superior to proprietary approaches "
If that was really meant, then the most exciting stuff is actually right here, where users ARE supposed to have a say.
