The permissions thing, and the amount of data that the OS and non-removable Google apps move in and out of my phone after I try to lock down the security as much as I can, leaves me not wanting to be anywhere near an Android device. But, as you mention, some of the permissions are flat-out ridiculous: "in order to install Amazon Kindle book reader, you must allow Amazon to have full access to the GPS technology in your phone to track your position 24/7, do you accept?"
