I just switched from my IPhone 3G to a Droid. The store rep claims the Droid with the slower processor, will yield a longer battery life. I'm not ap hungry. I use my iphone for phone calls, browsing and a calcutator. I have a garmin nav in each of my vehicles and plenty of computers when I'm on the ground. I do hope to use the tethering offered for $9.95 by Easy Tether.
I'm not a hacker and don't want to mess with rooting.
