get the invisible shield and then put a case around it

I LOVE the camera/camcorder functionality of the new 4G. Apparently Apple got some guys from Canon to come design it.

I hear the 4GS comes out around Christmas time, which is right when I'm eligible for an upgrade. So I'll wait until then.
I love that all of that came stock from the beginning with my droid

Eh. I've played with the droid. It's nice, but not all that. And the stock camera with the droid isn't anything close to what the iPhone 4G brings. Droid is a nice phone, especially the 2nd generation that recently came out. But I'd still prefer the functionality of the iPhone. Mac just does it better. And I say that as I type this post from a PC.

Re: iPhone 4

GMScud, couldn't disagree more. I currently have an iPhone -- but Apple is behind the curve with technology. The 4G comes with a bunch of stuff android based phones have had for some time. I know people dropping the iPhone like crazy in favor for other smart phones. There's a reason Apple losses market share every quarter.

Re: iPhone 4

Apple has a way of marketing their products that develops blind loyalty. Heck for my son's birthday he wanted an ipod Nano. I swear we had the same conversation as the two bears!
ME- But this other mp3 player has a touch screen,
SON- "is it a ipod",
ME- no,
SON- "then i don't want it",
ME- but it plays songs, has more memory,
SON- "can i get it in green",
ME- no but you can get a case,
SON- "so is it an ipod",
ME-(shaking my head) no, ipod is just a marketing name,
SON- "ok dad so can i get the nano"

seriously, had this conversation in best buy, and wanted to go off on my own son like the evo sales bear did. Of course I didn't but geez how does Apple get into his head and he is only 11???

Dealing with one carrier will do that. That's going to change soon enough though.

It is just like fashion, same reason they have to wear a Holster shirt vs. a Wal Mart.

I remember when I was younger we skied a ot and I always had to have a CB jacket, they were super expensive and did nothing different then a non-CB jacket but I had to have it cause it was cool.

Re: iPhone 4

Matty -- I don't think so. While AT&T isn't the most stellar carrier ever, a lot of the people leaving cite the phone far more often than AT&T. After using the N1 and Evo -- they destroy the iPhone 4 on many levels. To each their own, but I just hate that Apple could release anything and people buy it without comparing it to other products. The iPhone was pretty revolutionary at the time, but it has since slipped towards the middle of the pack as far as performance and features.

Re: iPhone 4

You really don't think opening up the iPhone to other carriers is going to result in an increased market share for them? Did you see how many 4G iPhones they have sold already?

Re: iPhone 4

It will increase their market share, sure. Never said it wouldn't. However the more time that goes on, the more I see people jumping off the iPhone bandwagon. I'm saying the people that are dumping their iPhones now aren't doing it because of AT&T, they're doing it because of better phones.

Sure, the true geeks are always going to chase the latest and greatest product out there. But the average consumer looks for the status symbol and the big name brand more than anything, and that's the iPhone.

Wow thats ridiculous that you cant do that on the older generation iphones. I had heard that you cant run multiple apps at the same time, but I guess I thought you couldnít check email while leaving a browser open. Not listening to music while doing other stuff is just wrong. Can you play your music stored off of the drive at the same time while running a application? And not having folders is absolutely ridiculous too. And before you also couldnít move applications on top of your background? I will say that of the iphones ive looked at they do come across as smoother when moving from point to point.

So on the moto droid you have 3 background selections, one to the left, one in the middle, and one to the right and you only see one at a time. I keep all my news app on the left, just basic phone stuff in the middle (to keep the normal view real simple and uncluttered), and all my media stuff on the right. I hate that its not revolving, I really wish that I could go from the right screen to the left instead of having to go back to the middle then to the right.

The other thing im not crazy about is youtube. On the droid you cant get a lot youtube videos that you normally can on your computer. Im not really sure whats the deal behind this and never really looked into it. Im thinking some flash stuff?

Free navigation is awesome. Running Pandora, trapster, and navigation all at the same time is the only way to drive on the highways. I donít have a house phone or anything so Verizon is a must have for me. The other must have is a legit keyboard. I know you get good with a touch screen after a while and im good with a touch screen, but having a real keyboard is absolute in my book. Every try and send a text on a touch screen when its hot outside and have condensation on your fingers from the cold beer(s) you were holding? Itís a bitch. I will say that the droidís keyboard takes some getting used to, but the moto droid 2 coming out is apparently much easier. And the speaker on the driod is badass, sometimes you donít have a stereo but you still need tunes.

Also apple itunes format is a scam in my book. I donít think there stuff is DRM anymore (??), but anyone who has ever purchased a drm format itunes over a mp3 when both options were available for the same price went full retard in my book. My thought is a good company wouldnít have done that in the first plane. A la googleís Donít Be Evil.
