    I switched from a 3gs and have no plans on going back for the 4...I am happy with my Incredible and will most likely sell it to one of my crew that have Moto Droids when I get ready to upgrade when and if the next big hit makes it worth the move...

    Going from Android to iphone would be like throwing a free roaming chicken into one of those dark sheds where they step on eachother and sleep in theirs and others ****. I see nothing appealing with the iphone

    Not to mention, besides customizing the phone to your liking, the paid apps becomes a deterrent to switching, as well.

    Who wants to invest $30-$50 or more paying for apps and then turn around and do it all over to switch to Apple? Not to mention, I don't care how great IPhone is, there's still a learning curve to set-up all the apps and do your back-ups, etc...

    Mostly I think BB is the one at major risk as the others catch-up on doing the email thing right. IPhone and Android users I think will be reluctant to cross platforms because, so long as their phone is doing what they want, it takes more than just some prettier widgets and little sleaker phone to get people to switch.

    Don't care what anyone says, there is little true differentiation at this point as far as content and function (BB and corp e-mail aside).

    Camera and ram are the only two reasons I legitimately see myself upgrading this phone before it dies, and unless a new Droid is as painful of a switch as other alternatives I'd be unlikely to change.

    I got to be completely honest, i would also. Theres a lot of apps i love on the iPhone that i cant get on Android.

    I love my Incredible though and it aint going nowhere unless the iPhone hits Verizon.

    1. Snap to column view (HTC Browser)
    2. Updated Google Maps with Nav.
    3. Sync your Google contact,calender,etc.....
    4. Give a choice to have flash or not in the browser.
    5. Itunes sucks. Get rid of it.

    Unless Iphone changes the following, I'm not going anywhere.

    Agreed. Like you said, 99% of cell phones don't know or care about multitasking, let alone the open source possibilities of Android. They just want something that works. Add a beautiful interface to that and you've got a very appealing product.

    For as much as I love the customization of my Droid, I am still jealous of the fluidity of the iphones interface, and now, the screen.

    Agreed, unfortunately... I'm still of the mindset that people should be required to get a license before they're allowed to touch a computer... Or procreate... :)
    As far as your jealousy though... The screen is nice, but not that much nicer, and just wait until 2.2.... It's smooth as silk!
    My droid runs better on 2.2 clocked at 400MHz with 15 programs running then it did on 2.1 at 1.2GHz with 8/15 programs running, and I'm not even exaggerating :)
