weak and boring applications
I gave up my iphone, very reluctantly, due tragically poor AT&T service. I got a droid incredible with verizon, because of their good service in the Portland Oregon area. With all the advertising about the apps for droid, I figured I would give it a shot.
The internet screams on this system compared to the iPhone. I can't tell if its Verizon, or the droid, or both, but it is significantly faster.
However, I have to say going from the iPhone to the Droid is like going back to DOS 1.0. The applications are a joke. Who cares if you can run multiple apps, if none of them are worth running. There are thousands of apps, many of which are redrawn versions of the same dinosaur 1995 software. The only applications I have found any use for are the medical software databases I use for my practice. I must say that those run very well, and look better on the droid than the iPhone. It is a massive disappointment that such technology can only be useful as a phone, and simple database. I really isn't any fun at all.
I am now considering reactivating my iphone as a second phone, simply to have access to all the awesome applications, and reducing my Verizon Driod to phone service only, because it is so dull.
