Android becoming an iPhone

by Phoenix100pr - 3/29/12 10:24 AM

Hey Cnet TVl, I enjoy your show a great deal, I have a question and a request if I may ask. You think you can write or do a show about why more Android device is being built without expansion slots and no removable battery?

Because from my understanding, as a Mac user and owner of everything Mac, this is the MAIN reason why people, including myself never bother with an iCrap iPhone. Although Apples ecosystem is better as far as quality is concern. However I was OK, comfortable with Android ecosystem. However if the new trend in smartphone are going to be like the iPhone, with no expansion slots and removable battery. Why would I chose to continue with Android, it's a no brainier that being force chose between all the non removable no expansion slot phone in the up coming market, Lots of Mac owner with Androids device will jump onto the iPhone bandwagon. After all the ecosystem is better every which way.

However in a perfect world I WANT to stay with Android phone, because of the removable battery and expansion slots. I don't care what anyone says, I need that extra battery in my pocket. I have all my family and friends on that dam iCrap iPhone, running around like a chicken with it's head cut off looking for an outlet all over the city. I don't want to be one of those headless chickens kind of people. However if I were force, then I will gladly be that headless chicken looking for a plug for my iPhone 5. Can you write about this new trend, and do you see a movement from Android to Apple because of this? Thank you.
