iOS 4 - Apple did it again - They Ship another junk

Damn you Apple, i don't know how I should praise you for this wonderful piece of crap. Yes a crap, i have a better word but not going to lose my language ethics in front of my pals. 
Now, let me explain what this story is all about. Just after a year launch of iPhone 3GS, Apple released another phone and named it as iPhone 4. Well they did nothing out of the box in this product. Everything was already existed before in so many mobile phones, even in some low handset model from Nokia. The only thing which entices me was the display or so called retina display, the gyro accelerator but i was not interested in this. The interested thing was the launch of next OS i.e. the iOS4 (They removed phone word from “IPhone OS” because it is being used in iPod touch also). Well as per the conference they introduced more than 100 new user feature and 1500 new API's. It was said that due to hardware constraints some of the feature will not be operational in IPhone3G (The one i posses), fair enough. I waited so long and finally the day of launch 21 June 2010 came. I don’t know about their release process J but the date and timing of release was different in all countries. Yesterday (21 June) I was soooo excited in office and around 12 o’clock I came home with full of synergy. The moment I entered my home, I had only one target to acquire that was my laptop. After midnight, the day turned to 22 June 2010. I thought till now they must have released the iOS in Japan. Unaware of the fact I checked for the update and got a message that my OS is the latest one. It means they did not release it yet. So I continued my regular activity with feeling that it will be released very soon and I will have lots of new and feature. Damn, it was 4:30 am when iOS finally arrived in my IPhone. During the final booting, I was looking at my iPhone like a father looks at his first child (Thoda Zyadaa ho gaya but yehi fact hai). Now it was the time of exploring. I unlock my screen and say what; damn there is no home screen wallpaper (A feature introduced in iOS). The moment I saw this it was certain that they fooled the iPhone 3G users (Poor us). Fortunately we got some good features like uni-mailbox, folders but missed some of the very nice features. I never expected something so annoying is going to be released from Apple. I spoiled my night, wasted my time and lost my most adorable thing i.e.  sleeping and what they gave us in return, an OS with less than expected features. I was expecting 50% of feature to be compatible with iPhone 3G. With this I realized that I am done with Apple. At least with the IPhone, not with my Macbook J.  
Now it’s turn to get some Android devices because I know that future belongs to open community with infinite collaboration of people around the world (Sorry Heera but this is the fact :) ). So what I have in mind. Well people, there is only two company in my mind. One is HTC another is Google. In HTC either desire or EVO, well no option with Google they have only nexus one. I am just waiting for these devices to be launched in Japan (After reading this Sahil must be very happy).
So now, how I will get all features in my IPhone? Woooohhh, I am not going to make it public, but all the people who stayed with me in Japan, knows how I deal with Apple. Kyun bhai logo sahi bola na J

So till then cheers…
