"Android lets you…"

Daring Fireball points to a Scoble article about why some  Android developers are creating for Android first and iPhone second (if at all). He lists three reasons:

1. Android lets developers have access to the dialer so that app developers can watch who calls you and who you call.

2. Android lets developers look at the wifi and bluetooth radios on the phone so app developers can build better systems to track where you are, who you are near, and whether you are near things like your car.

3. Android lets developers ship and test without waiting up to three weeks to have their apps approved.

Read #1 and #2 again…I don’t know about you but I don’t want an app on my phone that can do those things, I don’t care how benign the reasoning behind it is.
