Android 2.1 vs iPhone os 3

Android vs iPhone

I know there are a thousand and one comparison guide and charts out there for comparison between Anroid and iPhone, but it is always nice to see someones point of view. Fanboys, there is no reason to come on here and argue, this is a simple chart to help some others get some prospective. As always you should test both devices yourself (store or a friend) and come up with your own opinions and conclusions.
