Apple or Android. Here's something that might help.
For me, it comes down to what the phone plugs into.
My Alpine head unit supports the large flat 26pin Apple iPod/phone plug and, even if it falls down between the seat cushions while I'm driving, I am still controlling it and seeing song titles with the radio head unit. Plus, its recharging the phone while I drive.
More importantly, I just moved to the Seattle area from Californa back in December. So, yeah, I use navigation a lot. Especially when they warn you of traffic congestion ahead. Something Seattle drivers have to endure.
I really appreciate the voice prompts from Verizon Navigator "ducks" the music down from the iPod function that I'm listening to so I can hear what the lady is saying. Basically, I only listen to Sirius sat radio on the Alpine if I know where I'm going.
I use Nike+, and NikeGym+. The first is the wireless sensor transmitter that I keep on my shoe laces. The other is built into the media centers on Precor treadmills, ellipticals, AdaptiveMotionTrainers, at the 24hr fit super sport I go to. At the end of the workout, a small file is stored on your iPod/iPhone memory for each workout. When I plug my iPod into my PC, fire up iTunes. These workouts are automatically sent to Nike+.com.
So, while I can say my previous employer sells chips for both kinds of handsets, i found the iPhone experience to be well integrated and it has yet to disappoint me.
The bedside alarm clock industry definitely has iPod-doc market locked up. Hard to find one without the dock/charge feature.
The challenge Android has is getting all manufacturers to agree on a new system that replaces the micro-USB connector they use now, plus the headphone cable.
