I'd probably suggest the Droid if you go to Verizon (it's popular so it's like every app is built for the droid), or your choice of Android handset on any provider. Can't go wrong. I was nervous making the leap from WinMo to Android but my fears have all been squelched.

the nexus one is not made by apple. Pretty sure it's HTC and the only way to get the nexus one is from www.google.com/phone or craigs list or ebay im guessing

I'd go Droid over G1, for several reasons (16GB/newer hardware/OS/platform), I have the Droid and love it. Looking forward to the next generation of this line, they really did a nice job on the Droid.

If you get rid of your iphone, let me know. Plano is kinda far, but I'd be willing to make the drive for a good deal.

My next phone (unless the iphone gets a significant overhaul this year) will be a nexus one or a nokia n900.

I've had an iphone for 20 months now and have blown through 5 of them (about to be 6). Only once was my fault due to a drop.

If Apple was named Microsoft, there would be rioting in the streets but since it's apple they get some kind of free pass at making a great mobile device but a shitty phone.

I'm done with blackberry too and their fees for enterprise data. I've got users spending 45 bucks a month for enterprise data (BES server contectivity to outlook/exchange requires this package and gives them the same as a 30 dollar iphone plan). I have one guy spending more on data than his voice service.

why people complain about their iphone so much is beyond me, if you don't like it, you can EASILY sell it for more than enough to cover ETF costs.

I'm down man. Let me know. Shoot me a PM whenever you're ready to sell.

By the way, I had a little LG Xenon for a little while which has a keyboard and loved that phone. I'm not sure how the app store is or anything like that, but all in all a great phone.

why people complain about complaints about the iphone is beyond me, if you dont like them complaining, dont take the time to post about it, you could EASILY just ignore it and get on with your life.
