    IMO an all glass phone is... very dumb.

    Would you like all glass car keys too?

    Companies are required to release the source code of their Android OS build vs. no source for apple OS

    You can change launcher/home screen without needing root.
    actually generalize that/

    You aren't forced to use the default 'core function apps'. ( you can go to market and get handcent, lP, ADW etc.)

    Glass is scratch resistant. I don't need my keys to be scratch resistant. Thanks for the irrelevant analogy though.

    You can intall apps in the background, and the market doesn't kick you out every time you install an app.

    You don't have to put in your password for free apps.

    More free apps in market than apple's app store.

    So what? My coworkers Evo shattered too when he dropped it. It's not as fragile cause it has a plastic back, but it will shatter nonetheless. I'll take a glass back over a plastic one that'll look like a wolverine attacked it

    Agreed, glass, especially gorilla glass Is far far better than polycarbonate for a phone screen.
    Polycarbonate sucks because it gets so horribly scratched up compared to glass that is much harder to scratch.
