Many lovers of Android today are only modern generation users. Some of us only started with Gingerbread 2.3 while many others first got to know the Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0. Frankly speaking, I hated Android before the release of the Gingerbread OS, but one thing was certain to me: The future of Android OS was and is very bright. Then I loved the Windows Mobile platform even more than the iOS.
