    More rumors...

    I can't even count how many times the iPhone was coming to Verizon.

    Quoted from the linked article:

    "Droid reviews have largely described it as a second place alternative for users who want to stick with Verizon. That being the case, the prospect of a Verizon iPhone appears poised to deflate Droid sales this holiday season."

    What a load of bullshit. Who would've guessed that this quote came from a website dedicated solely to Apple products? :rolleyes:

    Give Google time for about 2 OS Updates for the Droid before Q2, 2010, and the iPhone will be a relic...

    It's not news that Apple and Verizon have been trying to figure out how each could make money by working something out together. What I thought was interesting was the details of what the Verizon iPhone might look like. If you've just gotten a Droid and a 2 year contract, I would not like hearing that either. The other piece is the Verizon "special" ETF for the Droid and some of their other high end smart phones. That's what stopped me from ordering a Droid more than the off chance that iPhones will be coming in 3Q 2010.

    Doesn't sound good that the Verizon version might have a 2.8" LCD screen instead of the 3.5" screen that is currently on the device.

    I agree. Not saying the iPhone is a bad device, it was way ahead of its time when it came out. However, I do feel that most people who have an iPhone will stick with ATT for their iPhone needs. And the people who get the iPhone on Verizon will be those that want one because they wanna be apart of the "cool" iPhone crowd. I truly wish Verizon wouldn't pick it up and stick with being one of the main Android supporting networks. There is huge potential for lots of great things that can come from a huge network of Android users. Just my 2 cents worth. -Mitchell

    If the iPhone had been available on Friday, November 6th, I still would have chosen the Droid. Even with all of these bugs that many of us are experiencing, I would have chosen the Droid. I love my Macbook Pro (so I'm not anti Apple at all), but the Droid is so much more appealing than the iPhone is to me.

    From someone who wanted an iphone from day one, but refused to move to AT&T and just bought the Droid on launch day, I think this is great.

    All that it will do is force each company to be better and the consumers will benefit from that.
