I guess your experience of integrating your Android phone has been vastly different to mine (which was seemless integration and functionality first time, every time).

We have an Android, iOS and Windows OS smartphone in my household and there are pro's and con's to each of them. Interestingly the Samsung Omnia WinMo7 phone is not enjoying pairing with my current E82 or my colleagues E90 on a consistent basis. It runs with incredible smoothness though and as far as a phone doing what it's supposed to do, it's quite good. I manage the wife's iOS devices and I can see why they appeal to the masses.

On a different point, I'm not a fan of Siri given the data is stored by Apple for mining.

Tech is always being superceded, often more quickly than expected (take the new iDrive for the F30 as an example) and this, in my view, is the "flavour of the month".
