    I Agree.

    Do any of you think the Verizon iPhone will really hurt at&t? Im only asking because at&t has a really good line up of android devices for their customers this year and they will still have the iPhone.

    vPhone will really hurt AT&T, I think they'll lose atleast 5-6 million users. Maybe, as much as 10 million. All 3gs users I think. I don't see anyone leaving AT&T and paying the ETF for the same phone they already have. I ponied up just to leave that crap service, but I think I'm in the minority... Now, I think they would pay the ETF to jump from AT&T 3gs to Verizon 4g, and definitely when they could get vPhone 5.

    I definitely hear ya on that one but with the frequency they are being reported now and some well known sites posting the reports I say a release is imminent. Now as to a release date, I think that is where people truly have no idea. Will it be tomorrow, will it be 6 months from now?? But I do think things are lining up for a definite 2011 release.

    precisely. i'm not buying that respected news agencies would confirm things and then just blame their sources if it doesn't happen. it's gonna happen, no one knows an exact date, but its definitely 2011

    It's going to crack me up watching the hype/hysteria if the elusive WHITE IPhone launches on VZW. I'm talking a whole other level than just a VZW IPhone, all because of a color...

    Speaking of which, how long before we start seeing celeb branded android phones? Like the Jay-Z MixDroid or something. Sell! Sell! Sell!

    Say what you will, the iPhone is still a good phone. To deny otherwise is ludicrous. I've got my Incredible and will be keeping it, but if the iPhone does drop, I will be getting one for my wife as she doesn't have as much interest in Android. Plus, with all of the apps I have for my iPod Touch and iPad, it would go along good with my Android.

    People have to realize just because one phone is good that another is not automatically bad. And without the iPhone pushing like it has, I will bet good money the Android phones wouldn't be as far along as they are today. God knows, the Windows phones weren't pushing them to develop, nor was Blackberry. The iPhones have been the best thing to possibly happen to Android. And vice versa.

    Actually, the iPhone is a great mp3 player and mini computer. It is NOT a great phone. Independent Consumer Reports will not recommend it as a phone (latest models)....

    Only because if the antenna problem. I don't think they are too bad as phones.

    Their cydia app is not the greatest. I will just come out and say it for the "few" of us rommers, themers and devs, but android is the bomb for rooting/ romming!!!!!!!

    2 clicks and I have free wifi for my 13 hour car ride!
