Do yourself a favor and try out iOS before you buy an iPhone. I think you will find that it is powerful in some aspects and very limited in others. For my uses, Android serves me much better. Not to mention the Android marketplace isn't ruled with an iron fist, giving users access to certain apps that are extremely useful but will never be found on iOS.

thanks vin. i am really not an advanced power cellphone user, so i think apple's stuff would be perfect for me, because it seems like the iOS does the regular things pretty well. but i will try it out beforehand.

ViN hit the nail on the head. I used to have an iPhone (3GS), but I changed to an android phone and haven't looked back. All the things that the iphone can do, the android phones can do and then some.

Don't rule out the android phones.

I just recently changed from android to the iPhone and im not looking back at all. So much smoother and once the changes come this fall all my gripes with iOS will be gone.

Why? Have you been following the development? Over 200 new features promised in mango. The latest build is available to devs, and I haven't seen one negative review of the progress thus far.

MS is serious about this platform, and Windows 8 will be on millions of tablets shortly after release.

Still sporting my Samsung Intensity II and loathe it. I miss my old flip-phone. Simple, easy to use. Was a *great* phone. Oh well.

It still does not mean that the android market (or apple for that matter) will just stand down and not build on an already proven stable platform. My Android tablet is already taking the place of my laptop. I use my Android O/S more now than I use ms for my daily browsing/email/etc.

By the time Windows roll out this "promised" platform, Android/Apple will already have a bigger advantage over Windows.
