I'm disappointed in the review, but I certainly understand where he is coming from. A lot of the freshness of Mango has worn off, and Android's getting incredibly close to unifying the ecosystem.
The OS fits my needs perfectly, but some of the issues he has (power twitter user, google docs, loads of iOS quality games) are not currently addressed via third party apps.
That being said, the other reviews I've read all seem incredibly positive, and hopefully the phone will succeed in bringing good consumer perception to the platform. Without the consumers, developers won't allocate lots of resources to fix the issues Josh had...
