Robert Scoble abandoning iOS for Android

Social media star and Apple fan Robert Scoble claims that he has had enough of the Apple iPhone and is switching to an Android device. On his Google+ page, Scoble wrote that he was "getting ready to leave the Apple platform and switch to Android" and is "no longer an Apple fanboy." Scoble believes that Apple has "slipped" but believes that "most apps are smoother and have fewer problems on iOS" but is leaving the ecosystem regardless, citing Google's Project Glass' easier integration with other Android devices.
