    Kudos for the well-though out consideration. This FEELS like mostly a VZW forum, and in that regard it's relevant, even though it's really Android. I enjoy the discussions on the future of the market ad the implications and all, but it's mostly OT conversation.

    The one downside is 5 gazillion threads about "IPhone or [insert Android phone here]?"

    I don't know who supports or who owns this site, but it's a GREAT site and I can't blame you for capitalizing on the success by inviting IPhone users and making it a great resource for comparisons and information. I mean, I would imagine it's a bannable offense for even mentioning Android on an Apple forum.

    People here love Android, but I'd say they love smartphones and the potential more. In that regard, an IPhone section is wholly appropriate.

    Perfectly content with my D1 but anxious to upgrade to a dual core LTE.

    No real interest in leaving Android, although if WinMo7 really gets it's act together I could consider trialing that. But given the costs involved and that you are stuck for at least a year, trialing wouldn't seem real popular risking being stuck on a platform you're not as satisfied with for a year or more. I mean, if I went to the IPhone there would be a learning curve for me after becoming accustomed to interacting on Android, not to mention searching out the equivalent of 100+ apps - that would be a frustrating period for me.

    I don't know much about the Iphone, honestly. Do they make customer roms for it and can the cpu be overclocked like my Droid?

    No roms per se, but they do have themes and you can change out whatever icons etc you want once you jailbreak it. there's really no need to overclock the cpu as I assume you do that for performance gains (and yes the D1 almost needs to be overclocked). the iphone is smooth as butter when it comes to performance/responsiveness

    If 4g rates go up alot or if there is a capped data plan then I would think that the iphone is the cheapest and best 3g phone verizon has to offer??

    Thanks for the reply. How about Flash? That's one thing that my son complains about the most with his Ipod Touch.

    as dumb as it sounds haha, i still prefer my OG droid to an iphone, but i'm sure my opinion is not the popular one. Yeah, I could see a 3g iphone become the best selling 3g phone for VZW if LTE is more expensive...in fact, I'm pretty certain that will be the case. If the analysts are right, it'll outsell all the android devices combined quite handedly...

    It all depends. I'm going to Basic Training in March. By the time I get out my new every 2 will be close. Depending on what all happens in the phone market while I'm digging holes and sleeping in them I may or may not jump ship. I know for sure I won't get an iPhone from the very first batch of CDMA iPhones. I'll wait till everything is proven stable. Basically, it depends on the app markets of both platforms at the time of my NE2 and the hardware advances. Right now the Droid Bionic is looking pretty nice to me. Who knows what will be available in August. :p
