See, here’s the thing.
“With a proper overclocked and undervolted kernel, this thing is going to scream.”
That’s from a great post about the Nexus S on Android Central.
Real, actual consumers (and not hackers) who say “I like Android because it’s open” will never, EVER follow it with something like you see above.
If they’d stop saying things like that, which are basically invalid marketing arguments they’ve accepted as religious fact, made moot by carrier restrictions on their phones, effectively crippling them way past the point of the iPhone’s perceived “lack of control”, I would be 87% less stabby on a daily basis.
