    Personally I would get the HTC HD2. The hardware on that is nice, add the XDA-devs and that thing is sexy off the wall. ;D

    Nokia N900. A powerful OS goes a long way.

    The HTC HD2 tempted me awfully, but WM6.5 put me right off.

    Well i really didn't like the lag on my WM based HTC FUZE before i went to the Droid. I did have an Iphone as well, so I would either use a Iphone or go blackberry 9700.

    I'm still not on Android, will be an android pretty soon once my contract ends. But I think I'll be Looking for a Palm or Windows Treo if Android didn't exist.

    I have this Palm Treo 600 about 5 years ago, and guess what? I just replaced my Moto RIZR Z3 with that same phone when my Moto's controls started falling off. My 5 Yr. old Treo still works great. Except for a brighter spot on the lower left side of the screen, it's still working just fine, including battery life, where I can play music with the speaker phone for half a day and I would still have enough juice to get me through the day.

    With that testament, I hope the Android phone I'm looking to get soon have the same quality as my Palm Treo 600. :)

    Seriously, I like my Droid, but had Apple announced an Iphone for Verizon late last year I'd still be waiting for my bite off the Apple. Now, you'll have to pry my rooted, wifi-tethered Droid from my cold dead hands. ;-)

    EDITED: Words come to me, but the Droid doesn't tolerate my thin connection between hand and brain.

    Since as per this thread Android would not exist, I wouldn't know how sucky WM6.5 would be. So most likely the HTC Touch Pro 2 or the HD2.

    I'd still be using my Palm Centro. Yeah, people like to complain about how "boring" the OS is, but guess what? I've been using that OS (over 3 different devices) for about 12 years, and never managed to kill one yet. No crashes, either. That was a sturdy little OS. :)

    I dont know lol, I fell into Android because I wanted to switch to Sprint, their prices are just too good to pass up. I probably would own a Palm Pre.

    I'd probably stay with iPhone. Not because I like Apple, I hate they way they do business and all their fanbois (I feel SO uncomfortable in an Apple Store, those aren't my people), but because it does what i want it to do. Of course, to make it do EVERYTHING I want it to do, I had to jailbreak it. But I'm glad Android IS around, I plan on making the move to that when my iPhone contract ends in Summer '11!

    Most likely a Blackberry Bold 9700. I was an all out Blackberry fan before I came to Android.

    This.

    I came from a Motorola RAZR v3m, and I probably wouldn't have left the dumb phone market without Android. I never was all that interested in Windows Mobile, and had heard from a few people that it was pretty blek. I had never seen too many Blackberries at home before, so I was never exposed to that market. And I have always disliked Apple, even before I became interested in Android and my Moto Droid. So no chance I would have went there (plus, my family has Verizon, and wouldn't ever convert.).

    So, I think it's safe to say that I'd still be rocking the RAZR. :)

    I'd go back to Blackberry! Probably the newest Tour since it doesn't have a trackball.

    I'd have either a palm pre, or there was also a cool nokia that was flash-enabled so you could watch Hulu on it. Still waiting for a hulu droid app...
