My System Specs

Default

Thanks for confirming that I'm not completely nuts

From seeing my parents' Android phone, the Facebook app is quite similar to the web interface (essentially the mobile site's layout). Since I don't need notifications from my Facebook (I use this forum more than Facebook ), the browser is just fine. If ever find Facebook going through the trouble of hijacking Opera Mobile to get to my phone's info, I'm closing my Facebook account.

@geokilla I agree I'm sacrificing a lot of the "smartphone experience" but it's one I'm willing to make. My browser + web interface is good enough that I don't need a dedicated app for everything. As for Google itself, I just smile and nod because my research group's putting everything up on Google accounts.
