I realise that this is perhaps asking for trouble, but I've got to say it: I can no longer see any reason to be recommending an iPhone over the better Android handsets, not even to "unsophisticated" users.

Comparing like with like, Android handsets no longer have any significant functionality gap. Frankly, they do more. As of 2.2 I think it's fair to say that Android is at the very least feature-comparable with iOS. The higher-end handsets (remember, "comparing like with like") are every bit as well-designed and -built as the iPhone.

It seems that every DST change there are reports like this. The claim is that even with the current iOS release, some users are still experiencing wacky alarm behaviour. Really not acceptable, and it implies a rather unusual lack of attention to detail.

Throw in the downright nasty behaviour Apple is engaging in with respect to e-books and I'm simply not seeing any reason why the iPhone is a better choice absent an established investment in the platform.
