Two months without Android

When we opened up the office for the new year, Nicholas told me he had dropped his HTC Sensation in the Ocean, on a family trip to the Beach, over the holidays. He did his best to save it, drying it out, but it was too late. He had lost his HTC to water damage.

He needed to be connected, so I gave him my Nexus S, to get him back online.

Up until recently I have been carrying a Nexus S and an iPhone 4, so this is the first time I've been flying solo with an iPhone only.

One of the first things I noticed was that the apps I used to use regularly on my Android performed a little better on iOS or at least that is how I perceived it. The iPhone only experience has been pretty good so far, Gmail for iOS is great, Google Maps is Great, the one thing I do miss is Google Talk.

At work we run most of what we do with Google based services and Android really does this better than iOS. Google have however made most of their apps available as Native installs for iOS and they all work really well.

I'd dig to get my hands on a new Android at some point, preferably a Nexus 4, but until then I'm pretty comfortable using my iPhone as my primary communication device.
