Apple Vs Google-An In-Depth Look At Switching From An iPhone to Android-OpEd | AZ Tech Beat

Angelo Coppola looks at switching from iPhone to Android.

Some good observations here, but in these sorts of switcher articles I read over and over about how you need to figure out if you want to continue investing in Apple and iTunes. What I would like to see is how those things are done in Android world and what it would take to migrate. I want a look at the Android equivalents of what’s in the Apple ecosystem: music.app/iTunes, iBooks, iPhoto, Videos, and the rest. How do I play music on the desktop in the Android ecosystem? Google music’s web app? Amazon’s web player? You’ve already lost. May as well use Spotify or Rdio.

I haven’t yet read a comparison of ecosystems. The hardware is nice, but it feels like this part is overlooked.
