    I love the Verizon network but I was going to leave Verizon to go to ATT just because the Iphone is such an incredible phone, and the apps are amazing. But Verizon got the Droid which was comparable to the iphone so I jumped on it. I am really liking the Droid so far the apps available are not even close to the iphones, and apps are a big deal to me. When Verizon gets the iphone I'm jumping to that phone day 1.


    Accept competition, don't hate on it
    The question I have then is why did you get a Droid? Simply put. You wanted an iPhone but got a Droid but will get an iPhone if it comes to VZW. Ummm... that really doesn't make any sense to me. I don't hate competition, I embrace it because it produces better products. Which is why Android exists as well as the Droid, Nexus, Incredible, Evo, etc... What I don't like is being locked into a device that I cannot do anything with other than what is prescribed to me by the manufacturer. I also don't enjoy having to pay for a new phone if something happens to the battery and having a fixed amount of storage. DRM is also another big problem with me as I believe once I pay for a piece of media I should be able to play it on whatever device I choose. Which is why the iPhone is in my opinion and inferior device. Maybe not hardware wise but definitely from the software/OS front.

    I got the Droid because it was the closest thing Verizon had to an iphone and I believe most of the Droid owners feel the way I do
    Me thinks your wrong on that one.

    It's OK for your Droid to be different. Just be supportive and reassuring and it will do just fine. It's when you or other people point at it or mock it for being different is when its' feelings get hurt. Just show it unconditional love regardless of its' differences and it will in turn reciprocate that love and loyalty.

    I don't.

    Then again, I don't claim to speak for most Droid owners.

    iPhone HD to get video conferencing on June 22 | The Apple Core | ZDNet.com

    New Iphone to be called Iphone HD, to be announced June 22nd. Will have multitasking, front facing camera, 960 X 640 screen. Video conferencing is also going to be supported.

    My guess is it won't include mini HDMI out and you will have to buy an expensive dock to hook up to your tv and of course no SD cards for expansion. Probably won't have flash support either.

    Damn, I can't wait till the Droid 2 comes out.
    FYI 960x640 on a 4" screen is not a correct ratio for a screen that small. Anyway besides that. Aside from a front facing camera what else will it have to offer? Multi-tasking according to the article is going to be for "select" 3rd party apps. No SD cards, no removable battery, nada. It can record in HD, yay? No flash support, confirmed as everyone working on the iPad is going HTML5. So essentially a somewhat faster, a little larger screen with a better resolution but nothing above and beyond a Droid let alone an Evo 4G. Again nothing compelling or woohoo about it.

    That's the way I feel.

    Or would have, since my Droid was a Christmas gift from my parents. If I had my way, I'd still be using my Razr.

    Think of something. Because that's how I feel. VZW gets iPhone, I'm switching (and yes, I'll leave these forums).

    Yep, the Droid's nice. But for what I want/need in a smartphone, it's more than likely never coming to the Droid. I can get what I need on an iPhone.

    And being a person who makes a living as a photography, I don't "play" with photoshop. In fact I have never had a game on any computer other than what came with it. My computers are a tool to work with, and to make me money if at all possible. They aren't game consoles (so I don't know what "crysis 2" is).

    Everyone has their likes and dislikes. People need to be tolerant.
    (I know it doesn't happen).

    Then why did you get a Droid knowing that you can get what you need on an iPhone but not Android? Kinda like knowing that the red pill will kill you and the blue pill will cure all your ills. But you took the red pill because it's your favorite color. It just doesn't make sense.
