"The look and the feel of the iphone"...So Iphone stole the look and the feel of Palm? Am I hearing this right? I mean there can only be 1 smart phone company right? A monopoly? Again lawsuit null and void...

BTW the first Iphone was released in June 29, 2007 and the first Android OS was released in 2005...So I am guessing apple will accuse someone of going back in time to steal their OS...Again lawsuit null and void...

The only thing they share is the fact they are both smart phones and they both are parts of alot of peoples daily lives...IMHO it ends there...

But its the same basis...Apple is just trying to cause controversy and try and kill the competition...Does no one remember the mudslinging when Windows went up against Macintosh in the late 80's/Early 90's? It was the same shit with each trying to sue each other to kill out the competition...IMHO its how apple always has done business and always will...

With the iphone you have set points you can click on and make stuff happen...You have set locations the icons will go...With Android you have none of those boundaries...You cant set the iphones resolution and change the gesture motions...You can on android...

My wife loves her iphone and I love the fact that she loves it...In my house I have an Iphone 4, IPOD 3rd Gen Touch, IPOD 160gb Classic, 64 GB Wifi/3G IPAD, IPOD Nano, and a smaller IPOD classic...I like them for what they are...But NONE of them have the capabilities to do what I do with android...

BTW the iphone 5 is going to be bigger...

The hero sucks...

The evo's stock interface blows...

The thunderbolt interface is just like the evo's...

I just feel that HTC puts way too much of their bullshit in there...

I have yet to see a HTC phone impress me...

IF Motorola would unlock the bootloader on the Droid X it would easily be the best phone on the market...One gripe about Motorola is they have started encrypting the bootloader after the insane things that were done with the droid 1...

Incredible's battery last about as long as virgin in a gangbang...

Droid has been doing flash since 2.2

Yes it does both actually...

Then they are not doing shit correctly...Because all your contacts and such are stored in your gmail account...If they are TRUELY losing them then they would be deleting them from the gmail and phone...

Keep away from app killers...It does more harm then good...With linux there is a process for shutting down an app...App killers do what they say just completely shut the app down...Which can make those apps fux up...

You are completely wrong on that one...LOL

Apple only approves apps they can make money on...

Thats recockulous...

iOS is a software which is what runs the iPhone, itouch, and iPad which is just like android...So thats how I can compare...

Google Android vs. Apple iOS: Feature War Heats Up - PCWorld

For the better part of 20 years, Mac lovers fumed in frustration as Apple languished in sub-5% PC market share territory. Wintel dominated. Big, ugly, buggy, clunky, and everywhere. It seemed as if graphic designers were the only people stubbornly refusing to admit defeat and join the rest of the planet in using Windows.

But then Steve Jobs came to the rescue — and over time, people actually started buying Macs again. And then the iPod! and iTunes! Somehow Apple found a way to reinvent and completely dominate an entire category of consumer electronics. The company seemed to change overnight — and became the leading-edge technology giant it always knew it was supposed to be.

And then the iPod begat the iPhone – and lo, the consumer beheld it and said it was good.

Windows Mobile, Symbian, Brew, RIM, all the closed-deck nonsense pushed by the carriers — they were the dinosaurs in the path of the iPhone asteroid. Even AT&T’s awful network couldn’t stop the juggernaut. Apple had irreversibly changed the wireless industry, for the better.

And then onto Apple’s coattails stepped the Google.

When Google bought the little startup Android in 2005 and eventually launched it into the market, people were extremely skeptical. Previous Linux-based and open platforms had failed miserably, and why would developers want to work on Android when there were already 100,000 apps in Apple’s App Store and growing?

Then HTC and Motorola latched onto Android in a big way (the former to come out from the white-label shadows, the latter to get its mojo back). Droid, Hero, Desire, Droid Incredible, Droid X — all of a sudden it was like a veritable Jawa swap meet. Yes, the Android market was a scatty mess, the apps were fewer and barely legal in some cases. But Android was getting ready to take over.

Back in January I pointed out that Google’s Nexus One was not a big deal, but Android was; Nexus was the concept car, not the iPhone killer. Some believed Android would win because the iPhone was chained to AT&T, whereas Android wasn’t chained to any network. This was partly right, however it goes far beyond that. Once it was clear that Android was building a critical mass, handset OEMs saw their chance to beat Apple and stay relevant. The smartphone segment suddenly had exploded — up to 50% of all new shipments were now smartphones, and in another year it will be closer to 100%.

You may laugh at that last statement, but it is more likely to happen than not, and all because of Android. I realized this when I saw the LG Optimus, an Android smartphone now on T-Mobile for $30. Thirty bucks for a smartphone. Remember when the Motorola RAZR became ubiquitous? It wasn’t popular at the start when it cost $300, but when it became cheap it was everywhere.

Apple may certainly come out with a very low-end iPhone; the company is indeed incredibly adept at segmenting markets with 2-3 different versions of a product and relentlessly driving down prices on all of them. But will Apple ever have 20 versions of the iPhone? 50? Of course not. Will it ever license the platform to OEMs? Are you kidding me? This is why Android will completely dominate the wireless world. It is spreading like a virus throughout the ecosystem as you read this (see chart above). Apple will always be the Maserati of smartphones — leading-edge, trendy, stylish, downright awesome. But Android will be the Ford Taurus — maybe a little dull in comparison, sometimes clunky, but dependable, cheap and everywhere you look, just like Windows in the last Apple Holy War (except for the dependable part).

Mobile app developers don’t necessarily have to choose between these platforms, and mostly aren’t. It’s a far cry from several years ago when you’d have to port your app to dozens of different handsets — now just 2 or 3 platforms and you’re done. However, if you had to prioritize your focus, Android in the long run is the right place to be. Apple’s distribution platform is much better currently, but the numbers game is more important. If you want ubiquity, sell to Ford, not Maserati.

I have been with Verizon for 8 years...I have NEVER had issues with reception and I drive all over the place from Missouri to VA...VA to NYC...NYC To Florida...Florida to New Orleans...And the only place I ever dropped service is a 5 mile stretch in the mountains of West Virginia...

Never had an issue with customer service that they didnt fix...They thought I hadnt returned a phone that they had sent me a replacement under warranty for...I told them I did...24 hours later they took it off my bill...

I pay under $200 a month for 1400 anytime minutes, free nights and weekends, unlimited texts, unlimited mobile to mobile and 2 data plans...That covers 4 phones...2 cells, a droid x and a iphone 4...
