As to media players; the next time I'm in the market for one, I'll seriously consider an unlocked Nexus phone for that role. Until then, my Galaxy Player serves me well for its role - a pocket web device with turn-by-turn Google Maps navigation. I really don't care that it'll never get beyond 2.3.whatever.
I recall reading that your iPod was recently upgraded to iOS 6.
Seems to me that you lack the self-awareness to recognize the cognitive dissonance inherent in defending the Android platform while not caring about non-Nexus devices and their problems, which represent >90% of the platform.
