OS Comparison

Apple’s IPhone OS, from what I understand, apps can be removed and added from the main screen.  Apple provides the tools needed to plug additional apps to the main menu.  Therefore, if an app does not seem to work so good, it can be replaced with another if available.

OS Comparision

REACT OS, which is an OS used on many generic phones, cannot have apps removed or added from the main screen.  It maybe possible, but it seems that nobody programs apps for it.  The only option is to use JAVA pluggable apps through the JAVA games section on the phone by installing.  Therefore, if an app does not seem to work so good, the buyer is stuck with it unless a JAVA alternative can be used.

All data will be updated and new stuff added once I get the Odyssey and determine if the specifications are correct.

Other details can be seen at http://aprivatebeach.com/blog/2009/12/purchasing-cell-phone-from-chinavasion.  The common features that both phones have such as WI-FI and FM radio are not included in the table above.
