Have not explored the possibilities of a Droid, Pacanis. When my BB subscription runs out in Sept. I am thinking about an IPhone. What are the Droid advantages as you see them? Other than the really cute commercials....

I don't see any advantage of a Droid over an iPhone. People talk about Apple's closed system and the android's open one, but those must be some serious power users. I see no difference between getting apps from Apple's site or the android market place... and I do not use my phone as a computer, only if I need to quickly look something up when I'm out.
And this Droid is the glitchiest phone I have ever owned. From what I read, iPhone's are pretty stable. And available with my carrier now. However, I have had this original Droid longer than any previous phone I have owned. I will need to give some serious thought to my next phone and size will be a consideration. I do not use my phone to read books, so really don't need a huge screen on it. iPhone's are a little smaller.
Decisions decisions.

I just bought a Kindle2 with wifi and 3g for $99 from Woot.com. Woot is one day, one deal, so I don't know if the Kindle deal will come up again.
