    I'm on my Droid now. If I was on the computer, I would give a laundry list. However, first and foremost, NO BATTERY PULLS. I don't miss those one bit. Better memory management and no spinning clock when issuing a command to perform a simple task like opening a program.

    Newer OS that is open source so no limits on development of apps. Java is old on the BB system.

    Market is so much better than blackberry app world and a lot of the apps are free.

    No battery pulls

    Better virtual typing IMHO (right up there with the Iphone)
    Physical keyboard as well.
    Better resolution screen
    Turn by turn navigation
    MUCH MUCH MUCH Better browser. Right up there with Safari on the Iphone
    Fast as hell
    Email is better in my opinion....ok here me out. BB are great at getting you pushed email, but from there it kind of sucks. There are truncated generic looking. With BB you also don't have an option to not get email. There were times I wanted to not get my work email, but it was a pain to stop it. With my Droid...I make the decision when I want it....and the emails look like they were meant to.

    Better updates. Well I am betting on this since it is google and they like pushing things and being creative.

    I can't stress enough there there are a bunch of apps out there. Similar to another "there's an app for that" phone.

    Now....this phone takes a little time to learn and the manual bites. Once you get moving with it though....amazing.

    Focus issues with the camera have been documented to death. The fix is supposedly on the way.

    I was a devoted BB user and left my Tour for this phone. Not even close to looking back.

    ** on a side note...beware of what you here on the Crackberry android forum. Some is legite, but others are pure out BB trolls making crap up.
