    Google and Andoid teaming up? … I was unaware that they were two different entities.. The title to this article is a bit off. (or did I miss something?)

    But yes Google’s integration into it’s own mobile OS, Android, is really clean.

    Uh… this article is really screwy. Google and Android are the same thing; Android was created by Google.

    Secondly, the Google Voice and Gmail/Calendar screenshots are of the iPhone application. I find it really hard to believe this article met quality control for Smashing Apps. Get this crap off here, rewrite it, then let’s see it back up.

    C’mon….

    I’m with the previous comments.

    Google and Android are not separate. The Android OS was created by Google.

    The Google Calendar and Google Voice screenshots are from an iPhone. Android has dedicated apps for both Calendar and Voice.

    Please . . . a little quality control on your articles would be good.

    Ugh, this article is riddled with problems. First off, Google and Android; THEY’RE THE SAME THING. Thats Googles mobile operating system dummy.

    Second, Google Finance: Apple has the Stocks app. True while i dont personally use it, and it may not be up to par as Googles (i wouldnt know), there are several other apps that fill the void on the app store.

    Third, in your ‘fantastic’ Google Voice section you show the pictures of the WEB-APP on the IPHONE!! Thats suppose to be an argument for the Droid? Are you mental?

    Fourth, Gmail & Caldendar: With the built-in apps on the iphone such as Calendar and Mail, i can not only have my own calendar, but Googles calendar & gmail alongside. In a single view i can see all my calendar events for personal and Google for the day/week/month. I can also see all of my email inboxes, including Push Gmail, in a single unified inbox on iphone Mail. And all of this takes place OTA & pushed direct to my phone upon any change on my phone or the gmail website.

    Fifth: Google Listen. This sounds like a gimmick to me, but regardless, the iPhone has had the capability to download and stream podcasts for years. I do it on a daily basis. True there is no subscribing straight from the device, but once again there are apps to fill the void.

    In fact, i’ll raise you. Shazam. Been out for a long, long time for the iPhone. This simple yet powerful iPhone app lets me hold the phone up to a song for about 10 seconds, while it figures out what music is playing, then displaying all the song/artist/album info and letting me see lyrics, music videos on youtube, and allowing me to purchase that very music on iTunes.

    Im not taking anything away from Android, its an extremely capable system with very useful apps. Im merely trying to show what a one-sided argument this article is, and the holes in the points of the article.

    To sum up, “Google And Android Teaming Up To Beat iPhone” was a rather worthless read for me.
