I agree that there are some folks that grab the android devices because of the Google stigma, but many who buy Apple products do so for the same reasons (status symbol...etc). In a comparison between the two operating systems the Android OS is clearly superior, and in regards to hardware you have variety to choose from (also a benefit).Almost all my friends have droid phones and I can't but help feel like it's the new "Apple". People are just getting it because it's different, because it's not Apple.
True i have the curve 8900 it freezes a lot. I can never keep more than 2 days of texts on it.I might be one of the few but I honestly don't care who made the iPhone, I would still buy it. I didn't get it because it's Apple, frankly I dislike them, but have continued to get the phone because of it's features. It's a well made phone on many accounts. I am not knocking the Droid phones, but my experience between them has proved the iphone better, in my eyes.
I have a BlackBerry for work, and I have never wanted to destroy a phone so bad as I do that one.
Interface glitches on the Droid? You must have a bum phone.I'll be one to say that I HATE the Droid that I have for work. There are way too many little interface glitches that should have been worked out long ago in user testing that still crop up.
Anyone with most kinds of technical backgrounds notice it immediately - your average consumer isn't bothered by them, has been my experience talking to people about whether they like theirs or not.
I will be getting something else when my little LG Fusic dies.
