I love my Androids..but that's because I'm a nerd and love to tinker with things. I will admit that the whole Apple ecosystem is nice..and the fact that there is so much accessories and stuff available in that ecosystem..it definately leaves me envious at times. If iPhones ever become customizable to the same extent that Android is..I could see myself actually trying one out..but until I'm able to change the (imo) fugly UI on them..then it's anything but Apple for this cat."Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don't turn up at all." -Sam Ewing

iTunes does not bother me one bit. It is even better now that I can Wirelessly sync my iPhone anywhere I want with iOS 5 and iTunes 10.5. I was syncing my Android devices with iTunes using third party solutions because it is just so easy. I have iTunes set up perfectly so when I sync my devices, it is mirrored perfectly on there as well.
I love Android and its customization. It is my favorite OS, although iOS 5 is extremely nice. It runs better than Android did for me (stock) and it is in beta form. Smooth as butter and nice new features.

The wireless sync makes it much more palatable; I just hate the presence of iTunes. I know I am being a tad unreasonable, as I am, for all intents and purposes, tethered to Google servers.
Still, till this day, I cannot bear the sight of iTunes. If I ever had to switch to iOS, I want to know that I will never have to sync to it... ever. EVER!
AP/Avt: now, if I wanted to continue my use of Amazon rather than go to iTunes for music and other digital content, how easy is that now? Can I buy an mp3 from Amazon from the device?

I'm not sure about buying music through amazon straight from the phone. However, you can rip you amazon library and port it to iTunes and sync from there. I'm sure there are other options if you jailbreak though.

I was thinking about it but the more I use my EVO, the more I like it. I like the bigger touchscreen since I have big fingers, it is easier to use the keyboard, and even so my EVO is not rooted, there are lots of great apps to 'trick out' my phone, and jailbreaking the iPhone is risky now adays with all the ios updates, not as easy as it was with the older ios. I think I am going to stick with my EVO (until I am sent back to Romania....lol).Viata este bun...Traiasca si sa invete

The smart phone war is getting hotter by the minute! I am suprised with the way the economy is that sales are still at the level they are at. It won't be long before they level off and carriers start seeing delinquent accounts become rampant. I know quit a few people that went back to dumb phones to save on the monthly expense. The president has already admitted unemployment will be over 9 percent this winter and into 2012.

I had no urge to change from BB to android but did because BB wouldn't produce a device I really was looking for. Since becoming an android user I have no plan to change again. I really dispise apple for a variety of reasons, i will never own an apple device. The android experiment has worked for me but to me it is extermely difficult to change software, rom's exc. I really dont understand nor feel comfortable with all the code and crap like that. Downloading and installing leaked software for BB's was not problem for me, that seemed much easier. If BB ever has a device compable to a flagship android phone add a much larger choice of apps I may think of changing but for the most part I am happy with andoid. But apple will never be in my pocket.

Though still doing research, I am seriously considering an Android, particularly, the Motorola Photon 4G. Been looking at some of the key features and it fits my business and personal needs perfectly:
-Large, 4.3 inch screen
-International GSM/CDMA capability
-8MP HD camera w/front facing camera
As for Apple, I never liked their products and most likely, never will.

My job has me accessing Flash based websites. Since iDevices don't have Flash, the iPhone isn't something on my radar. Moving to Android added so many capabilities, it is hard to look at going to more limited options.RuneCryption - Unique memory game for PlayBook & BB10.

At first I was going to switch back to the iPhone 5 (if Sprint gets it) but after using, rooting, and tricking out my Evo, I will not switch (4G network has nothing to do regarding my decision), besides the apps I use on android are free but are not though iTunes. I just hope that Sprint does not offer unlimited data, if they do, we android users are going to have problems. Lets face it, Apple is doing their best to have a monopoly on the smartphones and most of the new features of OS5 are from the Android platform.
Note: When I do go back to Romania (in November), I will have no other choice but to go back to my iPhone4 but I still will not buy a iPhone5

I used to be a BB user. I really really liked the BES environment. Email, contacts, calendar all worked seamlessly, and that was crucial for me. I don't do games on my phone (except for Angry Birds, and I am admittedly an AB addict...) and I don't use it for music (aside from Pandora) and I especially don't do social networking at all (well, OK, I do LinkedIn, but that's different.) I see iPhones being supported better and integrated better into my work environment, whereas Android is the ugly stepchild who gets ignored.
So, IF VZW gives me an early upgrade, and IF iPhone5 has LTE, and IF the screen is 4 inches, and IF I can keep my unlimited data plan... I'll switch when it comes out. Otherwise, not so much, at least for now.
But if I do, I don't know if I'll ever be able to face all the Apple Fanboys in my family, after all the grief I've given them about Android being so much better...

It can go both ways, depending on how you look at it. I like Apple's quality control, but it has a stranglehold on distribution. I luckily stumbled upon Kush Deck and his Gingerbread Deck, and haven't looked back. But, this wouldn't have been possible without the community. The same is said about cvpcs, and his ability to get a Bionic to boot into CM7.
I guess, I've been spoiled by a good community in XDA, and the Slackware community. Slackware has Pat Volkerding as its Steve Jobs, and his small band of helpers. But, he allows others to take on projects, otherwise not supported by him, personally

Too many apps already purchased.
Removable battery and SD card.....
Free tethering via USB.
