1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Is this a JOKE??
    Lets see:
    Better (higher res) screen 3.7" (854x480) vs 3.5" (480x320)
    Dedicated Graphics processor (i.e. better video capability)
    Multi-tasking (so you can be doing things in the background)
    Real 3G coverage so you can actually GET videos to play (i.e. through YouTube ect.)

    And the sound is, IMHO a LOT better than the iPhony 3Gs (both loader and more dynamic range), unless you routinely watch videos w/o sound...

    KZI, correct on all accounts, but the 3GS has basically the same GPU (actually, some believe it has a GPU 2x the speed of the Droid's).... see differences between: PowerVR SGX 530 (Droid) vs 535 (IPhone)

    Ah, thanks for the clarification. Too bad Apple didn't bother to put a screen on the phone that could utilize the power of the GPU:icon_ devil: lol. What a waste...
