    "hook up your iOS device to your computer, fire up iTunes and hit the ?Check for Update? button"

    You wish it was that easy to update in Android, you have to wait for ATT, Tmo or Verizon to 'test' it out first... what a joke!

      In Android you do not have to "Hook up your iOS device to your computer" and I do not understand what does it mean ?Fixes a security vulnerability with certificate validation.? does it mean iOS has got security issues ?!

        @AdnanPirota Right in Android you can't get the updates for months...

      • Months and months

        Or less than a week in my case.

        (3.1 to 3.2)

        @AdnanPirota as far as hooking up with your PC goes, that is gonna go away with iOS 5, and people will still be able to update as soon as Apple releases updates. Unlike Android where the user is on the mercy of carriers. Also there is no - ho ho ho..you cannot use video calling on Skype because you do not have one of those 4-5 Android phones.

        I am guessing you too are a non android user as updates happen daily in android life. You don't have to wait for carrier updates as since it is open sourced many new complete rom updates with newest software are avaliable daily. You get to pick the flavor you want and takes less then 5 minutes to do it. Apple you have the same blah blah steve jobs liking only software and look and you have to wait for apple to give it to you.Android has so many developers updating all version daily you get new software before many carriers do.

        @Fletchguy [b]I am guessing you too are a non android user as updates happen daily in android life. [/b]

        Not officially it does not. One HAS TO hack/ root/ jailbreak their Android device to get an update that is compatible with the device but not signed on by the carrier where as anyone with a compatible iOS device gets the new official updates - including devices 2 years old...[b]

        Not exactly 5 minutes - it takes a bit longer for they cyanogen mod - at least on my Nook Color - but do go on... [b]

        Apple you have the same blah blah steve jobs liking only software and look and you have to wait for apple to give it to you.[/b]

        As opposed to waiting on the carriers to come off of an official update?!?!? Dude there was an article or two on ZDNet trumpeting the fact that AT&T FINALLY vetted Android OS 2.3 Gingerbread for Android based smartphones released in 2011 - and with one that was released in 2010 getting some Gingerbread love as well. And Apple's iPhone 3GS which was released in 2009 is more than capable AND is signed off by Apple to run the update just released TODAY. Besides one can always root their iOS device to get the functionality/ tweaks/ whatever... but I guess because it's Apple then they suck when you have to hack/ root/ jailbreak but with Android it's okay... Cue the Double Standards! [b]

        Android has so many developers updating all version daily you get new software before many carriers do.[/b]

        And with jailbreaking tweaks and apps one can get capabilities with iOS prior to Apple releasing them - case in point is the new notification system that has been available for jailbroken iPhones for about a year now...

        @Fletchguy I think it's funny (and pretty pathetic) that people like you always just to rooting Android devices as the fix for everything but even just a year ago when somebody would defend the iPhone saying they could get such and such feature by jail breaking it was never a valid argument for you guys. What hypocrites.

        @AdnanPirota In android you can download all your apps through internet, you dont have to connect your phone with your computer and download apps through designated software like windows Zune or itunes for apple.

        I think that this refers more to a potential crack in the armour rather than something that is being currently being exploited for any reason. Unless something is 100% bullet proof its considered vulnerable.

      @Hasam1991 In the BlackBerry TabletOS, your device tells you it has an update and wirelessly downloads and installs it. iTunes/smyTunes... Of course Apple will "invent" this in iOS 5....

        @mapsonburt Unfortunately, RIM laid off 2000 employees today ? I suspect it wasn't because they are making billions in profits.

        @mapsonburt - At which point during the OTA update process does RIM/'Roid backup the dataset?
        Gr8Music
      • And ATT will profit!

        @mapsonburt Yep, and ATT will make millions in overage usage on data plans by iOS and BB devices getting the updates OTA weekly.

        @mapsonburt i love my playbook. and i love not having to ever plug it up to my comp. and when ever i do, which is rare, i can plug it into any comp i want and transfer movies off one and songs off another. theres also wireless syncing. it also backs up if u want it to for the person who asked. when the android player and email gets sorted out this will be the number 3 if not 2 tablet. its everything i wished my ipad was.

        @gke565 Not on the iOS devices, they will be done via WiFi only if I recall correctly.

        @dXoom

        Before you gloat - Ericsson had OTA updates at the start of GSM.

        So do I want to use my original Ericsson phone in preference - what do you think?

        @ mapsonburt

        Is Apple inventing OTA updates, no. Are they claiming to - no!

        Do you like to pretend Apple makes false claims - when in fact you are making false claims? YES!!!

        Apple as always concentrates on what the believe matters - quite frankly OTA updates is not the most important part of a phone by any means.

      I agree I have a Galaxy 7" Tablet and Sprint upgraded the OS to 2.3 Verizon will not update it. What the heck?
