Help me choose a new phone
 
As a birthday gift to me, I'm gonna get me a new phone. What should I get?

1. Get Verizon. AT&T sucks.
2. Right now Droid X is the flagship phone unless you want a physical keyboard, you can get a Droid 2 or Droid Pro.
3. You may want to wait for more 4G phones to be available for VZW. Just sayin.

My Droid 1 is still rocking and I love it.

I really like my Droid Incredible, but the games really rock on the iPhone. It's the difference, literally, from playing the freeware Linux Distro Games (Android) and playing a PSP or better (iPhone).

The nice thing about Android is that you can SSH tunnel and RDP. And I rarely even do that because I'd have to be VERY desperate to use it in that fashion.

I'm biased towards physical keyboards so any new Android with keyboard should do fine with your provider of choice. You always get 30days to try it out.

That said, I have a Blackberry and love it cause it gets things done quickly via the tons of keyboard shortcuts.

I have the Captivate and love it. The GPS on it isn't the best though.

You may want to check out the Samsung Windows 7 phone as well. I forget the name of it, but it looks sweet.

Go play with a Windows 7 Phone. I think that'd be the best bet. Either that or the Captivate, IMO. But I'd look at Windows 7, don't rule that out.

just a note of caution, it is my hunch that the windows 7 phones will get badly hacked.
jussayin for precautionary purposes

I got an iphone from my work about a month ago it is really awseome 2 cents.

I will need to give it back in a month and become Drol the foneless.

I have the Vibrant (T Mobile version of the Captivate) and it is nice except the GPS blows almost as much as Oprah's ass after a big pot of pinto beans and mexican cornbread for dinner... almost.
Many times it has reported us driving 100mph on the highway and off a bridge into the ocean. :eek2:

What do you want out of it?

:)

That will help determine what would be a great fit for you :)

I got to play with a Venue Pro today at a T-Mobile store (was picking up my stop-gap corporate phone till I get my hands on the VP) and Windows 7 was AWESOME. But, I personally use an iPhone 4. Both products are great but both are "polished" differently.
