In fact, the Caddilac Escalade had the distinction of making the 10 Worst Vehicles list. Is that what you are saying about the Droid?
Hmm you know I contradicted myself in another post never to buy a 1.0 or first gen of anything, however I did due diligence when I purchased my droid phone and broke down and got one. No I didnt wait in line like and Izombie and get one on day one, it was 3 months later when i was due for an upgrade. Now the Droid X is near and appears to be a marked improvement over the First gen that I have not had any problems with and enjoy using. Upgrade or no Upgrade conundrum. If they improved the one thing was text size adjustment I will get one, maybe, on the fence...
The iPhone 4G is riddled with problems and AT&T is one of the most disorganized companies in existence.
I feel like an idiot for trying an iPhone with Bell. After 7 years with Blackberry my old eyes liked the larger viewing for technical drawings. If only I could retrieve them! Sick to death of Bell and iPhone - agreed, never again! I am going to take a six hundred dollar hit to get away - worth every penny. I am on my 4th iPhone since March because Bell does nothing, and Apple can't hold Bell to anything near service. Great apps for kids............
The strongest argument for them I've seen revolves around true remote desktop capabilities. PhoneMyPC for android and the LogMeIn app for IPhone make them invaluable for trouble-shooting quickly and conveniently. It's the added flexibility of the android platform that pushes me in that direction, that and the much lower cost of ownership for all the time waisting activities coupled with the ability to use an android phone for storage and access on any system with a USB port.
Take Away all the games and gadget apps and how many are actually of any use other then to kill time? goes for both the iphone and android
The only thing I find more "superior" is the amount(amount not quality or price) of apps offered by iPhone. The phone its self I found incomplete when it first came out. It is now just becoming almost complete. AT&T is the other reason. Never again.
I still don't understand what is so superior about the iphone. Maybe "I just don't get it" I've used it and it's just not that impressive. I personally enjoy the android and blackberry platforms so much better. I have a friend that was amazed that their iphone "talks" to them when giving directions. Mine has done that since day one, as well as folders, multitasking, wallpapers, video, etc since day one. I just don't get it.
First, I think the X is nice and would love to have one. I'm not sure if this would mean I am restricted to belt loop mounting accessories or will have to change my wardrobe to cargo shorts and parchute pants. It may be worth it if it means I can skip out on an iPad.
