    Well my Ipod fell in water and got short circuited i guess. I want a new change from Apple and I am really looking forward to the android market. I live in Canada, and I am waiting for the Motorola Milestone to come out from Telus. I am a really big gaming fan, and the Android Market dosent have alot of games to choose from ( as I have heard). I like Rock Band for Ipod Touch, and it cant be ported to Motorola Milestone so Im pretty upset. I only have 500mbs per month with Telus :(. What do you guys think I should do?
    Get an Iphone to get App store?
    Or get Motorola Droid for all the specs and Android Market AND a new change (REALLY looking forward too)?

    iPhones and iPod touchs are the same thing. You've answered your own question?!


    Basically, my advice would be the following:

    - Get a Nexus 1/Droid
    - Sell your iPod touch
    - Get a ZuneHD

    No phone in existance can act as a router. It *can* however, act as a wifi hotspot. With that being said, I agree with lekky. Zunehd is far superior to itouch, and the nexus one and droid both run circles around the iphone. Keep your options open though. Look into sprint, the hero is nice, and the moment is actually faster than the droid, and the latest maintenence update fixed 99% of the known issues.

    Ignore sensesfail99. If apple made a 5.2hp 1 door clown car, but apple made it, he would swear up and down it was better than a ford gt.

    It would be the iCar and it will be considered the best car in the world despite the mountain of evidence to the contrary. :D

    I think half the people on this site hate on the iphone because everyone else does. I think along with iphone fan boys and fan girls there should be a Iphone hater fan boy club. I have a zune hd and a ipod touch. The ipod touch blows the zune hd away. The only thing I really think the zune does that the ipod doesnt is it has hd radio... but if youve got the money to invest in a 300$ mp3 player chances are you like music and you have a lot of it, so you wont need some *** hd radio. So take it from someone who has both of these mp3 players and can give you a real review... not just some bull crap opinion that probably has no support.

    The reason i say Iphone is because the virtual keyboard dominates all other virtual keyboards ive ever used....

    the mytouch i have is cool, but I think before summer ill be switching to an unlocked iphone....

    and yes iowa, it would be better than the ford gt... What car isnt better then ford? :p

    Radio is nice, if you like the music the radio stations play. Me? I hate all that mainstream garbage. Between my personal collection and Pandora, I'm 100% content. I'll hear enough mainstream crap when I'm at a night club, I don't need to hear the same Top 5 songs over and over again on the radio.

    Anyways, since you already dumped money into the apple app store, just sell your touch and buy an iphone.

    What's not better than ford? Hmmm dodge, chevy, toyota, honda, nissan, kia, saturn, vw, scion, etc. and whether or not someone needs hd radio isn't your call. Really. And he's looking at the droid, so vitual keyboard not needed. Also I wouldn't call an mp3 player an investment.... and if the virtual keyboard is your dealbreaker, your standards are incredibly low.

    Dodge and chevy are both better than ford :p!! It all comes down to personal preference.
    But please tell me how Virtual keyboard being a deal breaker would be a low standard? I mean I thought it would be important to have a virtual keyboard that is actually easy to use to text. My mytouch has a decent one, but the iphones is better by far.

    You remind me of the kids in school who were wearing trench coats and all black just because you wanted to be "different" from what other people were doing, yet inside you really just wanted to fit in.

    Dont hate on the Iphone/ipod because you dont have one and because everyone else on the forum is hating on them too. Sheep

    Plus the moto droid looks like a hunk of crap anyways

    Lol this is expected from the typical fanboi. But what's funny is the fanboi calling people sheep. I have owned quite a few mobile platforms, and while not owning an iphone, I have spent considerable time with one.( an experiment with a friend, we swapped phones for two weeks when I had my tp). And your response... so typical. " so what if it can't multi task.... your phone..... its ugly! Yeah its ugly! So ha" well the look and feel of a phone is opinion. So that being a main argument is moot. Your grasping at straws here kiddie. and I hate to break it to you, (maybe you need glasses), the iphone and droid form factor are almost identical. And also buying something because it looks cool makes you an even bigger fool. that just shows your insecurities as a person, and you need something to validate your existence. Even though I'm not a fan of moto,(quite the oppoite actually), the droid is a great piece of hardware.(although I don't like the keyboard, it could be better).

    And as a deal breaker, how about the devices ability as a communication device? (I.e. MAKE PHONE CALLS) So keep drinkin the steve jobs kool aid, sheep.

    On a side note, infering someone is a crazed multi murderer just bc YOU can't come up with a decent rebutal is both childish and sad. Really. Do you really have the need to validate yourself and posts by name-calling alone? And yeah, I'm guilty of name-calling at times(I.e. sheep ) but at least in my posts I provide some good factual evidence as well as solidly informed opinion. And if a keyboard WAS so important to you, well, that's why they invented qwerties.

    IOWA You are the best. I appreciate all of your opinions but I think ill stick with Moto Milestone. I dont care about the looks and the qwerty keyboard just takes getting used to. Once again I appreciate all your opinions, Thanks.

    Anytime. The mobile thing is a major hobby of mine, so I like to know it all so to speak. The droid is a solid choice, great piece of machinery. Let us know how you like it.

    Great... My ipod went down the drain almost literally... My ipod was completely submerged in water and stupidly, I turned it on. It flashed, then turned off. Then i turned it on again and poof short circuited. Ill try to get it fixed with warranty if I can but I doubt it. Any new ideas. I can only get one thing. So iphone or motorola milestone.

    Normally when something like that happens you whip out the battery and leave everything somewhere warm and dry for a couple of days to dry out and 19 times out of 20 you will be ok.

    Unless it's an Apple product - you can't get the battery out - go for warranty.

    Get the MileStone...

    Thanks guys.

    Do any of you think Android Market will get as many good apps as Iphone?

    UPDATE: THE MILESTONE CANNOT HAVE CUSTOM ROMS???? CAN SOMEONE CLARIFY??
    Also, can you add nexus one wallpapers with the interactive background?? Oh, one more thing. Is there a way to port the nexus one keyboard on the milestone (I mean the voice part on the keyboard. The speech to text thingy on the keyboard)
