Made the jump and got a "google phone" (HTC Dream with Android o/s).

Quite happy with it so far. Nice integration with google services that I use, snappy response on actions and quite fond of the 5 line keypad.

On the down side wish the battery would last longer and why in the world not include a 3.5mm jack?

If they ever give the HTC HD2 the Android makeover Ill pounce. I have no idea why all phones don't have the 3.5 jack, it makes no sense.

I just got a Motorola Droid... this thing is amazing!

Granted I've never had a smart phone before so I don't have any real standards for comparison, but the variety of free apps available is staggering (some devs make the free version of their program ad-supported, but i can live with that).

My main gripe is that it has now made my camera, my garmin, and almost my netbook obsolete.

@ d3ath, the iPhone has thousands upon thousands of free apps. :)

But I myself am tired of my iPhone and will be switching to the HTC HD device.

Yea, the iphone app store is like 10x the size of the google apps store, but thats not surprising given how long its taken the droids to take off.

BTW I may or may not be using my droid as a 3G wireless modem on my laptop right now... Verizon says that "feature" is not offered right now, but I say hogwash! This phone runs Linux, I tell you!

For giggles I took an x-ray of the phone (opened to expose the keyboard). Image attached.
