I have these now and will concentrate on more apps to use for work. All the apps I listed for you are free and I am sure I am goingto have to pay for some but most of the apps are very affordable and I can justify paying for them.
I want everything in place when I go to my local store to buy so I can walk in, have them transfer my contacts in the store, set up my email and pretty much thats it.
I also went to Apple.com BTW and downloaded the full PDF users guide for the iphone 4 so when I do this at the store I can go home,sync the phone in itunes and start playing with it to set it up to my liking and have the apps i want ready to install.
As you can see I have been planning this for some time...

And I sincerely hope Apple never makes the screen bigger... am I the only person who still wants their phone to fit in their pocket? I'm just over 5 feet tall, and these Droids will NEVER get in my pockets...

For me, the decision is easy since I live in an area that does not have LTE coverage. Because of this, I will definitely be going for the iPhone as I do not want to pay for something that I cannot have access to. I'll be paying full retail, but I have 2 lines that will be eligible for upgrades in May and July so if anything better comes out in the near future, I can upgrade at a cheaper cost.

The Bionic looks great but being a LTE phone I'm doubting its battery.. On the other hand its known that the iPhone 4 has awesome battery life and furthermore in my opinion the best out of any smartphone currently available. Of course battery is only one component of the many you should consider but its a very important one as a phone with a terrible battery is essentially just a fancy paper weight.

I have wimax hspa+ but no lte yet if Verizon rolls out lte as fast as sprint rolled out wimax in my area I should have lte by fall. I don't want to pay extra for lte but I would rather pay the extra amount than get lte in my area and be stuck with 3g . I have a hard decision

Ordinarily this would be a hard choice for me as well between these 2 phones and even add in the mix the new HTC Thunderbolt(That is whatthe new Incredible is being called now) but I have been waiting for an iphone for some time and have even gone as far as spent alot of time on itunes in the app store choosing some very good productivity apps to make my phone first and foremost a good business phone(All the naysayers say that you can't do this like a BB) but trust me I have found plenty of good apps and then the last I would say 25-30% of the phone will be apps that I can enjoy even at work but mainly outside of work and believe me none will consist of games(OK maybe one or two... but anyway that is my game plan.

I'm thinking the Droid Bionic looks really good on paper but that's as far as it goes. It still will have motorola's half-baked motoblur and will be running probably 2 android versions behind at launch the rate google is going with updates lately. iPhone 4 may be outdated as far as most cell phone's now are concerned but it's not just any smartphone and will last years longer than the Droid Bionic will 4G or not.

I wont trust anything my motorolla. I had an i9 flip phone (really nice. Glossy smoke color, mocked the Razr in terms of design. High res screen) it was a nice phone till the battery gave me issues. It got hot and started to smoke. I could see some orange glowing from the phone so I threw it down on the floor to eject the battery since it was too hot to touch. I conteacted Boost mobile, they won't help me, and I contracted motrolla and they gave me some BS responce. I just went and got a cheep $29.99 phone from Radio shack before getting the BB 8330 a week later and then the EVO three months later in November.
so iPhone > Bionic

I'm in the same boat- Droid user looking for another phone.
I'm gonna leave the Android OS for now
-I love the Android OS features and the google apps (way better than the iOS versions). But I love the selection of 3rd party apps even more. Android has improved, but not quickly enough. Maybe in another yr or two Android will have caught up
-I like CDMA. LTE is not fully deployed yet and it's gonna cost more. Not a good value yet for me. I'm sticking with CDMA. Unless Verizon is too cocky and they run into problems on their CDMA network. I can't think of an Android phone running on CDMA that is coming out in the first 1/2 of the year. It's like they all switched to LTE.
-Personally, I still like the iOS/iPhone platform. Don't get me wrong, Android is a good platform as well, but it's a personal preference.
