My contract w/ At&t just ended on Jan 1st and I'm going to switch (no more At&t and iPhone!). I'm having a really hard time deciding b/t the Evo 4G on Sprint or the Nexus S on T-mobile. What do you guys think?

On Sprint, I plan on getting the Everything Data plan with 450 Anytime minutes and on T-mobile I plan on getting the 450min plan with unlimited data. The plans come out to be about the same per month, so it's really down to the phone.

I live in Atlanta now and will be moving to Boston in 8 months, so I'm covered either way.

Originally I had planned on waiting till after CES to decide, but it doesn't seem any new phones for any carrier will be available until at least Feb or March. Which one should I get guys?

Isn't the Nexus S the best and fastest Android phone? And it runs Gingerbread, and will be updated first before any other Android phones to new versions.

None of them! They all suck compared to what went down today. Both those have Single Core 1GHz Hummingbirds and 800*480 screens, you want Dual core now and 960 x 540
Such as:
- Moto Bionic for Verizon
- Moto Atriz for AT&T
They both have Dual core and super high res screens and that should be the norm for atleast a year, before the next gen. HTC and Samsung are playing catchup atm(although I love my HD2 with android)
EDIT: I think the Month long wait is worth it for a way more superior device. I'd go with a cheap Cricket phone in the meantime

evo running gingerbread here and i wouldnt trade this phone up. granted i'm going to upgrade to a dual core model, but this has been a beast of a phone. and besides i wouldnt own a moto phone there still having issues with fully rooting the droid x.

i cant get past how the nexus s looks... more like a galaxy s knockoff instead of a new design like the nexus one was

Evo 4G: Core i7 2600K running on Intel graphics
Nexus S: Core i7 920 with a GTX 470

Not entirely sure why people love the Evo. Its a bit slower than my HTC Desire, and I don't even think it has an IPS display.

The Nexus S.

Has Gorilla Glass (htc phones do not).

Super AMOLED screen for true blacks, higher brightness, better viewing in the sun, viewing angles, less power consumption.

Gingerbread. The S will also be the first to get updates on all releases of Android.

NFC, and better hardware in general.
