    Really, I wish the rumors would quit. If Apple was to put iPhone head-to-head with a real Android device on a REAL network... together??? ... it would take about an hour before the EARTH knows who makes the better device ...and Apple (unfortunately) doesn't want that.

    Hardcores would know who makes the better phone. Unfortunately mainstreamers will always think the Iphone is better. The only thing we can hope for is Android continues to grow and hopefully by the time Iphone gets on Verizon it won't be as big of an impact.

    The iPhone on the Verizon network would be a HUGE seller. It's AT&T, not Apple, that has the most to lose if that eventuality comes about.

    Facts and figures about which phone is superior would be meaningless if the iPhone came to VZW. The unwashed masses view the iPhone as cool and chic, and that's enough to sell millions if the device. If Apple brought the iPhone to VZW it would quickly curb the marketshare upswing of Android and turn the tide back in favor of Apple. Let's face it, the folks who frequent this and other Android "fan" sites do not make up the majority of VZW customers. I'd say that easily half of the current Android phone owners would jump ship to iPhone and half of the current iPhone fanboys would jump over to VZW, but stick with an iPhone if Apple came to VZW.

    Android needs to QUICKLY improve its user experience and its handling of media (hopefully they go a long way with Gingerbread) if they want to complete with an iPhone on VZW.

    More needs to be done than just Android improving. They need to get the developers on board with coding for Android OS.

    I posted months ago that I would indeed "make the switch" to iPhone if it came to VZW. My reasoning was (and still is) that for what I need in the way of apps (for my work and my hobbies), they don't exist on Android. I counted over 40 apps last time that I could get at that moment on iPhone, but not on Android. And, like I said before, I have contacted the developers of most of the apps, and they have no plans to make Android versions of their programs.

    Sorry, but in this case, I have no brand loyalty. :)

    There's no money in Android (compared to on the iPhone) and on top of that it's a pain to code for Android due to all the different resolutions, different OS versions...

    That's OK we have plenty of Devs who don't seem to have an issue with it.
