My Droid X reboots itself once a day. I also miss the abundance of "quality" apps that iOS has to offer, specifically RDP and VNC. Also IPSEC VPN doesnt really work that well from my phone to my Mac Server. Honestly, if apple puts out a phone with a screen bigger than 4" i will buy it, if not... I will go with the bionic this year.

I own an Atrix (with 2.3.4) but I still love windows mobile. Hacking was just so much easier and the HTC HD2 is like a transformer, it can be whatever you want it to be (except an iphone).

the rest of the phones they come out with, are dated technology, which makes upgrading problematic and then you get cut out of functionality and apps cause your device isn't fast enough.

my suggestion, do a lot of research so you know what you are getting into.

you can install android on it youtube it (i wouldn't use it for everyday use, but it is cool to see it.)
That's why I bought a Nexus S, so I didn't have to deal with any crap. XP

Anyway, I am gonna check them youtube videos out later, I doubt Android would run smooth on an iPhone due to limited specs.. O_o

I was referring to build quality. The iPhone is one sleak device... I like how it looks. Imagine it with a 4" screen, dual core, and 1GB of RAM... O_O

Me? Nah I don't have any secret Apple hero worship or anything of the sort; I definitely love Android for what it is. My only "confession" is that I really want OEM manufacturers to do away with the custom UI, because it's hurting the Android image due to unnecessary bloat and skin layers. Something just feels... wrong about a stock Android phone unless it's running the vanilla OS.

I don't have a confession but I do find myself defending apple on some occasions
I find that people who blindly hate apple are equally if not more annoying than people who blindly love apple
I'd still never own an iphone but i'd be ok with an ipod though

it's apple's sexy build quality that makes you feel all warm and cozy inside. Android is designed for you to be you. Apple is made for you to be Apple. I wish android phones didn't come so cheaply feeling. Still, it's like with all good things in life. It's what's on the inside that counts

Some Android phones look and feel premium, though. I have always loved the Droid X and Galaxy S II designs.

My confession? I'm a mobile OS addict. I have at least one device from each OS, and I'm constantly playing with them.

I agree. I hate people that blindly despise a product as much as people who blindly love them.

I've been primarily an iPhone guy until I recently bought my Nexus S. I am planning to buy a Windows Phone 7 device later this fall when Mango is released, so I guess I'm sort of following your trend. XD

WebOS interests me as well, so I'm tempted to check one of them out. I've owned a Blackberry a long time ago, so it's unfair to judge it based on that.
