    It should be winning gadget of the year as well.

    Only device running Android 2.0 and Google Maps. Not to mention Moto splashed back onto the scene in a big way.

    Should be ahead.

    How you ask?

    Take a look at the Desktop voting. The 27" iMac has over 40% of the votes. This for a computer that has been pulled for the shelves in some stores because of monitor problems. Apple has yet to find a way of fixing them to everyone's satisfaction. Monitor flicker was the first problem and now some are complaing of a yellow tint to the screen. But Apple Fan Boys are voting it number one. :icon_evil:

    So why should one really be surprised that the iPone is in first place.

    BTW, I'm a MAC user.

    hard to beat navigation on the droid, especially compared to any other smart phone out there. very good functionality and it's FREE! :icon_ banana:

    agreed we should be ahead though. definitely the best 'new from the ground up' device that came out this year.

    Not knocking the iPhone it's a great device but what did it bring to the table in 09 that was new and/or exciting?

    Nothing, but you could put a turd in a shiny plastic case with an Apple logo and Mac users would buy it by the millions. They are also usually fanatics, so I'm sure they are voting on every single computer in the office, etc.

    Besides, in the end, who cares? I like my Droid better than I liked my iPhone. That's all that matters to me. I don't care what others think, and even if we won by a million votes...is Google/Moto going to send me a rebate check or something? All that should matter is that YOU like your phone better. I don't need to compare my phone to iPhone users and try to impress them.

    we might be a little bit behind, but all things considered thats impressive with the amount of time the iphone has been on the market, and how many people have one.

    the droid is doing quite well!

    Keep in mind the iPhone has been available for several years which has allowed Apple to build a large fan/user base. Give Android the same amount of time. I noted that the droid is ahead on the GPS.
