I can understand your view. There are apps and things you are "used to" or need on a iPhone, just like if I bought an iPhone now I might complain about doing things a new way. If there were apps I'm used to and they aren't on the iPhone, I'd complain. What you are saying there are apps that just don't exist on Android, and that is a valid, REAL reason to switch.
But, barring the reasons stated above, I don't see why people would switch. Personally, I've come to love Android, I really do. I just don't think the iPhone offers anything to me that Android doesn't.
oh, and "go play photoshop" is a reference to a very funny spoof video released a few years ago.
It really was funny.
I had an iphone and came back to VZW as soon as the Droid was introduced. The iphone is a CRAP business tool compared to the individualization and customization of the Droid. I was so happy to part with the Apple dictatorship and come over to an open market where I can do a, oh my gosh, don't say it, BATTERY PULL. There will always be people out there that want Apple, I am just not one of them. I would not have even had an iphone if VZW would have taken care of me when I dropped my XV6800. Loved that phone.

What bugs me is how popular the iPhone is. Sure it'd be a good move for Verizon, but it just really annoys me. The iPhone is overrated, and it's not nearly as fun to use as Android. I switched too, and the Droid is far superior but it will never look that way because an iPhone is an iPhone.
My sister's a mac too. It bothers me when she goes to buy a $2000 mac laptop and I'm standing here saying "Yo, the Hackintosh I can make for $1000 has much better hardware, forget about the mac" but of course since Macs are popular everyone just claims there better?

Android may be gaining a foothold in the market but whatever happened to Apples five million lawsuits? I guess they fell through for them to be taking the iPhone to Verizon. Maybe they figure they have to do it the long hard way instead of making them cease and desist.
it's all about the apps people, that's the issue, if the apps were the same on the droid I'd never even think about getting an iphone, but the apps are 10000x better on the iphone
the problem is that the apps will NEVER come close on android phones because there are so many different android phones with various capabilites and features which means the devs have so make the lowest quality product. They don't have to worry about that with the iphone.
the average person cares about all the apps, not weather or not you can root your phone and overclock it
