    could you elaborate abit more on the likes or love about theDroid so people like me could make up our mind in purchasing the phone.I am holding off on buying the iphone 3gs. I really don't a game toy.

    The Droid first of all is a better phone. The clarity is second to no other phone I have used. The screen is big...bigger than Iphones screen. It doesn't crash all the time. This phone as a PDA is VERY good. The sdk is available, so apps will come from everywhere, not just one company. By far, the best phone/PDA on the market.

    Drawbacks are:

    Camera sucks for stills, but takes increadible video for a phone. I hear they will fix this in a future OS update comming soon
    No flash embedded in a browser or otherwise. Also, comming soon according to Adobe, they will release flash for Android, but not for Iphone.
    Keyboard sucks, but you can install better keyboard apps. Skinny fingers...not a problem, but if you're big boned like me, then...
    No cut and paste. It does suck. Some apps have it, but the browser doesn't.

    Hope this helps your desision.

    Scratch one drawback of your list!

    The browser does have cut and paste, you just have select the menu/options button then, more, then choose "select text" and this will copy it to the clipboard. Then paste. The shortcut is select + e

    I have to disagree with you about the camera. I have taken some very nice, clear, high quality pics with it.
