    Couldnt have said it better myself.....lol

    To dismiss extended batteries, replaceable batteries is...laugh out loud funny.....if the iPhone, iPhone 4 has better battery life, fine. With what I read it does compared to Android phones. But if I can pop in an extended battery in my phone and surpass the battery life in an iPhone, thats nothing to sneeze at...I would look at that as a pro, not a con.

    OK, pointless and incredibly childish arguments aside; you dual-booted a phone? That is ****ing cool.

    I agree completely.

    I loved my Blackberry for what it did. I love my Android (Droid X) for what it does (seriously, email on the BB was far better and easier, but everything else is better on the droid, save for lack of BBM). Had I an iPhone, I'd love it for what it does.

    The iPhone is by no means a bad device. It makes calls, takes pictures, plays music, makes video calls, and has ridiculously good battery life. It also has a form factor which many companies still can't quite figure out how to incorporate. In consumerism, aesthetics does play a major role.

    I don't want an iPhone killer, I like market competition. Without the iPhone, Android might not be what it is today. Without Android or Blackberry, the iPhone might not be pushing and inspiring others to push the limits of handheld technology.

    Some people like chocolate, some people like strawberry. One might have fewer calories while the other has all natural ingredients. What we can all agree on is that we enjoy eating it. Get it? :)

    Be careful... you will ruffle UNC's feathers on that comment.

    I actually recall seeing an article posted showing the Droid X beating ALL smartphones on battery life. I will hunt for it, but I am not going to make it my life mission.

    I see the opposite happening on the net. More and more sites are utilizing flash.

    Yeah android was actually ported over to a few iphone models as a "why not" kinda thing. I ran it on a 3G and it was kinda laggy and slow with issues sorta like you would have with a new ROM. But that was also with the first public release. Havent played with it since.
