just switched over from htc hero (sprint)
I am amazed. I used to have a 3G and decided (stupidly) that I wanted something different, something that everyone else didn't already have. So, I went to Best Buy, had them cancel my Sprint contract and bought a 16GB 3GS (in white so I could still be kind of different) and I must say that I missed you trusty iPhone OS and all of your quirks. It may have some funny bugs, but I love it and I think that the voice feature is fantastic. So welcome back iPhone and please reintroduce yourself to my MacBook!

I see ads for new phone all the time. It makes me curious but when it comes down to it the Iphone and its capabilities are unmatched. Just my opinion but really, I know that other devices wont do everything my iphone will. Welcome back.

I do love my iphone though so chances are I wont switch, but I am definitely considering it right now though..

it is much improved from previous generation wm phones, i have the htc touch hd running the leo version of tf3d, but what wm lacks right now is the kind of development you find on the iphone.
It will really depend on your uses. But the screen is bigger and yes higher resolution, so that is nice.

I have my reservations about android, especially since you're limited to the internal memory of the phone for apps...that's just stupid....so your phone has 8gb or whatever (limited by the sd card) but the internal memory is only 256mb and that's all the space you can have for apps...that's pathetic.

Actually the app memory on the iPhone is limited to the version of iPhone you have. If you have a 4GB then its 4GB if its an 8GB then you have 8GB and so on, up to 32GB. A friend of mine had 8 pages of apps totaling in about 290MB.

Don't confuse storage size (the 8 or 32 GB on the iPhone) with RAM - the space you need to load/run a game.
This is one of the reasons you can't multitask on the iPhone. If you load up a nav app, that's usually your entire RAM gone and trying to load another app would either crash you or just not load.

we're not discussing ram, we're discussing internal storage re the Hero. Those devices come with ram + internal storage + an external storage source like a micro sd card.
Apps can only be installed to the internal memory, which is by default quite small. Incidentally Windows Mobile with the new marketplace is doing the same thing. Apps downloaded from the marketplace can only be installed to the internal storage. Just silly.

I too am curious about a lot of phones, but I haven't come across anything that compares to the iPhone. Even the devices projected to come out in the first and second quarters of next year don't seem to match up. Plus, come next June, there will be another iPhone. That's what I am waiting for.

The thing I consider is that the iPhone obviously wont stay the same forever they need to stay competitive. So when you switch to some new phone then the new iPhone comes out with even more features you're stuck because you don't have the cash to ditch your new phone and get the new iPhone or you're locked in to a contract. I am usually curious about new phones but not even considering switching.
