I’ve listened to the Apple fanboys crow on about how the Motorola Droid doesn’t have iTunes. They say it’s “Missing the experience” of iTunes and purchasing music in the iTunes Store. I have a question. Why would a wireless phone need to connect to anything to get content? It’s a wireless phone!
The iPhone requires me to attach it to a PC to sync content to it. The Droid has an Amazon store where I can download content directly to the phone. Even deleting a song on the iPhone is a pain since it has to be done from iTunes. My Droid allows me to just tap and hold the track and select Delete.
No smartphone should require its owner to also own a PC to use it. We’re moving beyond the PC and into an era where all that we need can be in our pocket, and iTunes is so 2005.
