    I have been wanting the Iphone but I am not going to lie...the Droid is pretty sweet from what I have seen. Still though my next phone will be one of these two. I can't wait.

    Yeah, I'd be all over this if I hadn't gotten the iPhone 4 as soon as I could in the summer. No AT&T 3G in New Castle, but we do have Verizon's. Unfortunately, I'm locked in with AT&T until summer of 2012...

    Does this mean the end of the Droid?

    I thought it was cool that (apparently for no extra cost) not only is unlimited data still an option with the Verizon iPhone, but you'll be able to use your phone as a mobile wifi hotspot. A nice combination right there.

    Yeah, I love to talk and not be able to use data simutaneously.

    Really, this is a "meh" for me.

    Personally, I'd barely notice not being able to do that. 99% of the time I'm calling someone from home, and I have WiFi here. And if I'm not calling from home, I'm usually on the road, and the last thing I need to be doing then is talking AND using the web.

    I love my Droid X. I will probably wait til Apple comes out with the next generation iPhone on Verizon, which I imagine will be able to fully utilize the 4G LTE Verizon network.

    A lot of people are gonna be happy. Doesn't mean much to me, though. Like Mackey, I love my Droid.

    I love Android and it is definitely here to stay because of the amount of phones that will continue to use it. And I know this might be a shocker, not everyone likes the Iphone. For me I will look at the Iphone as a possibility, but if I like a Droid phone better, I will go with the Droid. Not gonna get anything til its a 4g phone.

    The type of work I do makes that function necessary.

    Well, if you're talking about work purposes, you at least can do that while connected to a Wi-Fi connection.


    But, I agree with Hicks. I don't think the vast majority of smartphone owners would really use that feature.

    I like Android plat-form as well. My Galaxy S Captivate is freaking awesome. In fact I get pissed at trying to navigate my GFs Iphone for anything. This coming from a life long Mac user... IOS's main problem is lack a customizable home screen. I freaking love having all these widgets on my android home screen. I can't believe this feature hasn't been implemented in the Iphone yet considering that Apple actually created the widget screen/ dashboard several years ago in OSX Tiger!

    One thing about the Iphone vs Andriod is that Iphone updates are handled so much better with Iphone compared to having to wait for the latest android build for your particular Smart phone. I'm still on Android 2.1 (no Flash!) and Google is about to launch 2.3 soon. That to me is an epic fail on both Google and Manufacturer's part. I understand that all the phones are bit different, but they all have the same damn 4 buttons at the bottom. Does not make sense that it takes this long to update the phones.

    There are multiple HTC Droids, which one you referring to? The Eris? Incredible?

    My bad it's the Incredible. I just saw on Verizon's website it's only like $100 for a two year contract.

    I love my Incredible. Really nice, fast. Battery life isn't great but when you use phone for lots of stuff you kind of expect to have to charge it every night.
