    If we did that they still would post. We are trying to at least contain it.

    ^^^ it is a small improvement from posting iPhone stuff in Droid news.... I'm gonna find an iPhone equivalent of DF & see if they have an overactive Droid section..... anyone know of one? I tried icanhazproprietaryportsforchargingagain.net & lolphones.com

    Exactly what I just said haha...you can't shut it down, because the main site would be cluttered. There is no way to contain the iPhone hype by simply ignoring it.

    There's a difference. No iphone-centric site needs a droid section because the hype is not there.

    They still pay out the nose for iPhone subsidies... I'm sure they also have some sort of timed exclusivity with either the iPhone, the iPad, or both. (my guess is iPad)


    On an aside Apple had to make this deal, Verizon has already paid the R&D costs for a CDMA iPhone, which opens up China for a possible iPhone landing...

    I dont understand why people are making a deal over a device. I have an ipod touch over here right now and am thinking about getting an ipad..but I prefer the droid phone over the iphone....it is what it is. Just keep it calm people with iphones and family members with iphones should be able to come here and discuss it with out registering on a new forum. If the iphone hype is getting to you let me suggest turning off your tv and staying off the internet for a few days. They hype will die down then.

    Please refrain from posts that do nothing but incite problems.

    Actually it is cause we are open and mature here on droid forums to allow the discussion...we have no problem with openness.

    There is a difference between my post and yours and the intentions. Don't pretend not to understand that.

    At least the staff doesn't. We're working on passing that trait onto some members. :D

    of course. i understand that, but my point is valid to. after CES, do you think apple forums had to work overtime to delete all the threads about the Atrix and Bionic? No chance. The hype wasn't there. It's awesome that you're allowing the discussion, but you and I both know and as some mods have already stated you needed to create this section to keep it in one place. if you were to delete it, it'd spill over into the main forums whether you guys like iphone or not.
