Well I'm new obviously. I reside in Virginia but I'm in college down in Florida. I don't have an Android phone because I'm a poor college student and I've had the same phone since January 2008 (Lg Voyager). It's about time for me to upgrade so I've been looking at new phones. I guess I want an Android phone because of the features, software, and because the hardware isn't made by one specific company. I like how there are several companies utilizing the OS and making their own hardware based off of it. Leads to better phones and tablets IMO.
