Does anyone have experiences with this stuff? If not, why don't you like phones like these? I would like to hear you opinions.

I have an iPhone 3G and it's pretty good. I hear that, despite a few flaws, the 4 is actually quite good as well. HTC looks good too, but I've never used it.

I've never used a HTC phone before but I've always heard good things.

I am waiting for Google's Nexus S phone to come out. :)

Yeah well the iPhone 4g is a tad too expensive for what it offers I must say. And also too expensive for me. But thanks anyway.

Google Nexus S sounds sweet, when is it going to come out? I couldn't find a date really, so I suppose it will still be a while.

My old G1 is really dieing on me atm so I certainly need something around christmas.

Got myself an iPhone 4 because they were on sale for $149 at Radioshack.

Whhaaaat. 1.49$ with a contract, I assume?

it's more than 900€ here in germany, that's about 1200$!

Also I will get a Samsung Galaxy S. Even though it is more than half a year old, it still seems to kick everyones asses.

Not $1.49, $149. That's pretty standard in North America in terms of iPone prices WITH a contract, yes. I got my iPhone 3G (back when that was the big one) for $99 w/ a 3 year contract.

Yeah they don't even give out 3 year contracts here so $149 for an iPhone 4 was the best deal out there. So far I very much enjoy the 720p video camera it has. :)

Well I meant 149 I just thought you americans would put dots in between every 3 numbers.


ANYWAY.

I will enjoy my 720p camera as well 8-)

(the iphone camera is better though :( )

hi duckducksheep :3
I have an android phone and they are really incredible (the droid eris from verizon)
The coolest thing I can do with it is I have an unlimited data plan, so I hacked the phone to give me root admin access and now I put off my unlimited internet just like a wifi hotspot and get internet anywhere! comes in handy now that I live in my own apartment and cannot afford real internet. me and my girlfriend watch netflix movies on my xbox using my droids internet
also i love you

Yeahhhhh well Android is pretty rad. I mean I bought the first ever android phone, I gotta know.

Just got the Samsung Galaxy S and HOLY SHIT SUPER AMOLED FUCKING ROCKS.

Never saw contrasts this good ever.

When the screen is displaying the color "black" you can't even see where it ends on full brightness at midnight with no light in the room on. The black is that good.

Also yes I noticed that you can distribute wlan from the phone. Without any hacking even. Could be useful if I want to use my laptop in the wilderness.

But meh when is this going to happen =)

Still nice.
