Puzzled im like: So? Whats so good about that?

So i come out and go visit a friend of mine who happened to have just recently bought an android based mobile. So i ask him: Cool! But i have a question. What makes android special?
He looks at his cell phone for a while then at me and says: Well... its the latest software?!!!
It has HUGE benefits.
Not having to use a program like i-tunes to transfer files to or enable your device.
1. I can connect my Android device to my pc, and mount it as external storage. To break it all down for you, connect the Phone to PC, and drag and drop files to and from.
2. Flash support.
3. Like mentioned earlier, Custom ROM's, Kernals, and Themes. There is a growing community of developers that are hard at work everyday making improvements and tweaks to the original software. Most of the time, for the better.
4. Not having an i-phone... Sorry, Had to jab that one in there.
5. A wide range of devices, anywhere from starter phones to some far out high end devices.
If you like to tweak, tinker, customise, and not live in the walled in garden of Apple, Android is the perfect choice.
If you're not into any of that stuff, want to use the phone out of the box and not change a thing on it, I'd recommend you to an I-phone.
