    Here is my reason i choose android over apple I as a consumer want a phone that i can make mine and have the phone experience be how i want it not how a guy in a black turtleneck tells me. If apple was smart they would "leak" their source out to the world but they are not and android will always be mine

    my droid does the tapatalk thing

    Not getting an iPhone4 right now for those reasons. However if the iPhone5 does come out on Verizon at the end of the summer and has a 4+ inch screen, I may reconsider then.

    I am quite happy with my droid x and will not purchase the iPhone, although while it is a great device its just not for me.
    I am with CK in saying WAIT. The iPhone 5 should be out around July. You don't want to be stuck buying last years tech when this years is right around the corner.

    The tail wags the dog gentlemen. Let's not kid ourselves. Apple rules the roost and they can and will dictate terms. Sad but true.

    Apple farts and people fan it away for them : )

    i sort of understand the iphone attraction. but, for me, i can't even fathom buying an iphone 4 (3G, single core) just 2 months before all the dual core 4G droids drop. moreover, waiting until july to buy a single core 4G (iphone 5), when the dual core 4G's will already be out???? personally, i don't understand the rationale. but, maybe that's just me...

    A big issue with me currently with the VZW iPhones is that they're CDMA and not GSM. If I do decide to get a new VZW iPhone I'll be waiting until after the first couple batches of the CDMA devices go out. Let the gun jumpers help test them in the open. I'll wait for a more stable device. Lucky for me it'll be real easy to not be tempted to get one of the original CDMA iPhones as I'll be in basic training and unable to get to a phone for the initial hype. :D

    Maybe when I get out of basic and my NE2 is up I'll look into it. That's why I personally won't be getting a VZW iPhone 4 right off the bat. :p

    i guess the rationale is by the time 4g is actually viable across the nation, the iphone will have a 4g version...and since many many americans will not be in 4g coverage area they want what they perceive to be the best 3g phone that VZw has to offer.

    I couldn't agree more - like the device, hate the company.
