I went with Dell for 2 reasons their warranty, accidental coverage, and the fact the latitude 10 was offered with two removable batteries 2-30/4-60 whr.
I went with android phones over IPhone for one major reason, more choice in types of phones....I think I'OS is smoother but really didn't care for either Android, Blackberry, or I'OS....I wanted and have been waiting for someone to bring to the table something which could tie all things mobile, business, social networking, gaming, music, and video. I knew if I was to get what I am looking for, it would have to come from Microsoft. Two reasons why I put all my eggs in one basket concerning the perfect Mobile OS. How long has android and I'OS been around (?) ....and yet neither one has done anything close to one platform . one is to restrictive (proprietary) = I'OS....the other is to liberal (to open, unstructured, cumbersome)= android....I as an IT (geek) field engineer like the concept of Android, which is open to more of the individuals interpretation. That is great if you are a teenager but for a business IT... you know, good and well, it could mean and will mean, a lot of corrupted Data...and an IT nightmare come true. ***(keep in mind this is all under the umbrella of tying all devices together under one OS [ecosystem]...PC...Phone....Tablets) *** The second reason none of the 3 Mobile OS'S Blackberry, I'OS, Android cannot do what Microsoft can: They do not have the will, and or the resources, to take on such an ambitious endeavor. Personally, ( in my opinion) ..I think it is why Mac PC OS x is the way it is ....a lazy mans OS....yes I said it, Apple did not want the headaches which come with making their OS more open as Microsoft has...(Think about it) I find Mac a cumbersome limited lazy OS compared to Microsoft....yes Microsoft has more problems , more issues, but only because they dare to actually make their OS more versatile and useful in the practical use of everyday life. Simply put: Blackberry, Apple, and Android do not have the ability to do, and or, create a one size fits all ecosystem and they do not have the ambition or drive to even try.... In my opinion they do just enough to stay viable and that is it.....Where Microsoft has tackled what the others have seen as to much of a headache and it is no surprise they are the dominant (Preferred) Ecosystem both in business and in home users.
In conclusion Microsoft is where my hopes and wants will be met for an all inclusive ecosystem which will make my life as efficient as it can possibly be when using a Phone, Tablet, and a PC......
