    ike Ah-Loe

    Many of the points against Android are unfounded. Any Google device and most flagships now get monthly security updates. The use experience is completely objective, nothing quantifiable about it. I think stock Android is much more of an easy experience but that means nothing. Unlocked Google devices have no bloatware. Wifi tablets aren’t even tired to a carrier. Also Android supports usb out of the box, making it a better solution for POS developers who don’t want to design hardware to support more 3rd party usb hardware. The only legitimate point is that there is generally more support for iOS devices for some POS software, but that’s nothing against Android. That’s just marketing working.
