Yes, the list is weighted. But your marks still seem to be off - you gave desire and mini 8 points in calendar/agenda section. Shadamehr's example clearly shows that the advantage Desire has is a lot bigger. You suggest that the difference in e-mail between Desire/iPhone and N97 mini is one point? That's a bit shocking. And both the legend and mini get 8 points for general speed impression? Web browsing on N97 mini is just "one point worse" than on iPhone or Desire???

Sure, Android *is* less mature, and it shows in some areas. But, at the same time, I think is technically more advanced (or at least it feels that way, and I'm not talking about eye-candy but about how the OS seems architected, how it manages tasks & memory, how fast is developing, how easy is to develop for it and extend it). A more modern OS which hasn't yet reached maturity but has space to grow and feels fresh.
I don't think Nokia would explore the Maemo/Meego way if Symbian would hold so much room for development in the future.
