This exactly, I highly doubt they would. Considering Steve Jobs on multiple occasions bashed Android going for higher and higher screen sizes, I don't see his wants being trampeled on so quickly either. iPhone's will most likely stay at 3.5" for a long time.

Beyond bored of iOS. Beyond bored. 4 years of ownership is way too long to stick to something for me.

Personally, my issue is with people who have the "cult of Apple" mentality and trash Android without any firsthand knowledge of the platform. I'm actually pretty surprised you went with an iconia over an iPad--if I were going to buy a 10" tablet it'd probably be Apple despite iTunes, just because of the general mess I've found Honeycomb and Android tablet apps to be, though of course I say this as an owner of zero tablets of any kind, so I guess I'm glad your Iconia's working out enough to bring you in on the phone front. Always good to have new blood in here, in my opinion.
Buddy, you have no idea how much I agree with you about all this. I like both platforms, all for different reasons. I'd truly like MEEGO to have been popular, true Open source and extremely powerful linux distro had it any real dev support. Intel and Nokia were supporting it, there was hope. But that died with the N9, oh well.
Too many apple sheeple are out there, it just disturbs me. Back when there was donut and cupcake I understand. There were limited number of devices and they had problems, and the iphone 3G was one heck of a phone. I used to argue day and night with my best friend's with his G1 back in high school. But ever since 2.2 and the SGS and especially now, its almost silly to hate on android. Its a fantastic OS!
And I regret not getting an iPad a lot. I actually wanted the Asus TF101, and waited on release date. Little did I know Asus had supply issues, and barely had an initial supply for release day. It took 2 months for supply chain problems to get fixed. I got bored, and bought an Acer Iconia the next week.
I HATED HONEYCOMB SINCE 3.0.0! IT WAS AWFUL. Buggy as hell. But after many months, overclocking, Taboonay 2.1 Rom and 3.2, it is much better. Still a great device for content consumption such as netflix and youtube, which is all I use it for now. Browsing is still pretty slow. Dolphin's good, Firefox pisses me off by not having flash. Overall I like Opera even if its sunspider is not the best, it is fast! The build quality of the iconia is laughable. Fully aluminum construction my behind! IT feels like its made of plastic and will fall apart anyday. The camera cover (a common problem) just fell off within a month. I found out a cheap piece of tape was holding it together, a true testament to the quality of Acer. Garbage tablet. Garbage tablet OS.
I'm really excited about gingerbread though and ICS. my pops has an Epic 4G touch and its a great phone. ICS I had a terrible time with on the nexus at a VZW store, but that was before people knew to force gpu rendering. I like ICS for the most part, its fast and smooth, but it borrowed a ton from HC (expected) and eh..... I like gingerbread a lot, lets leave it at that.
Thanks for the welcome guys
