Good for them, it's nice to see a smartphone alternative rising in the ranks. Now the only real problem is whether I want an Android Phone or an iPhone 4. On one hand, the Android Phones usually have more going for them while the iPhone has that amazing screen and front facing camera. This is going to be a really tough decision for me.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
Yes the iPhone has an amazing screen. However, the screen isn't large enough that you would really be able to tell the difference in pixel density. The front facing camera is ok, but that's not an iPhone exclusive. The only thing I really like about the iPhone 4 is the 30fps video recording.
I'm not an Apple hater, I had the iPhone 3G and now have the 3GS. It's just that the iPhone isn't as innovative as it was when it first came out. Other companies have picked up the slack since then.
Ya, i think i might decide to switch over to an android phone after my contract with AT&T is over. The iphone is a great phone overall but i like trying new things such as new phones then the same one over and over again with few changes that won't last/amuse me for 2 years...
I am waiting right now. From what I have heard (I watch this closely as I am trying to make a decision on an upgrade) the Droid-X matches or exceeds every phone on market including the iPhone almost if not everything else even the EVO. There are some confirmed (Scorpion HTC 1.5Ghz), and some rumored (a 2Ghz Motorola with extended battery life past the 6 the Droid-X does now) coming to market very soon. The iPhone 4 is also rumored to me personally from an inside source to be hitting V by December. I personally don't really like the iPhone 4. It has to many connection and reliability issues for me.
The many connection issues come from AT&T's network. When I possibly get my iPhone I'm going to unlock it when the iPhone Dev Team comes out with an unlock for the iPhone 4 so I can use it on T-Mobile. I feel that if you're already with a mobile carrier and you want the hottest phone around. Why not unlock it and use the network that you've been a subscriber of for the past few years. Sure they ain't got as much 3G coverage but at least it's more reliable then AT&T's network.
Android seems to be a big hit.
I remember the days when no one cared what "OS" was on their phone... Every phone had a different interface lol

Many features of these new phones don't work out here in the Virginia countryside. Sprint works the best around here.
As a result, I find that I have no real need for a lot of bling in my phone. I just dial numbers and talk to people,....then I hang up.
I don't text, send pics, or use the internet on a cell phone.
While I'm glad to see Android taking off so well, it doesn't affect me at all.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Yea... all I do is talk and text... but I think if I had a data plan I would do a lot more...
My next phone will likely have android on it...
I just find it hard to shell out $200-400 on a new phone... argh
