    I talked to a guy the other day, who said the Droid sucked, and his iPhone rocks.

    given the available evidence, we are therefore at a rhetorical impasse.

    I was actually thinking about paying ETF with Verizon on one line of the family plan, paying off *cough* money I owe Sprint, and getting a Palm Pre with less coverage and having my family mad because they are on Verizon, just to get a Palm Pre.

    To have it come to Verizon and have the flash memory and storage memory doubled... wow. Speaking of Flash, they think it will be 4 months and the phone will be able to play real Flash videos.

    I took the POS Blackberry 8530 back today. I can't wait!

    I was tickled when my Droid came with a 16GB card.

    I noticed I can also take the battery out.

    Glad you enjoy your droid.

    My iPhone ROCKS! You must be one of those folks who are on GT but not like Glocks! ;)

    One of the iPhone's glaring disadvantages to business remains security. According to RIM, manufacture of BBerry devices:

    The BlackBerry® Enterprise Solution has been approved for storing and transmitting sensitive data by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) as well as government organizations in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Austria, Australia and New Zealand.

    Much of what enterprise IT values in BlackBerry is missing from the iPhone with or without a third-party technology like Microsoft ActiveSync. No native VPN. No native Mobile Device Management (MDM). No private on-premise secure OTA App push. Only 30 or so IT policies with ActiveSync (of which iPhone implements 13). Limited on-device encryption. (via Computerworld)

    The Droid runs on Google's Android (open) OS...security is, by definition here, not in the cards.

    My opinion; use what you like.

    I don't form strong emotional bonds with inanimate objects.

    A fone is a fone.

    I have neither, I have too much respect for my money.

    Glad you enjoy your toy, that is what life is all about!!

    People who think the Droid rocks have never used the iphone.
    In a gun perspective....
    Iphone = Glock
    Droid = Taurus
