    Current iphone 3gs user here. I'm thinking about picking up the N1 and selling the iPhone because of my general dislike for all things Apple, however, I tried out the Droid last year for 30 days and went back to my iPhone. I'm wondering if things have changed significantly in the Android world since then.

    I'm particularly interested in Android alternatives or flavors of the following iPhone applications:

    • Lastpass (password manager)
    • meebo or BeeJive IM (instant messaging apps)
    • kindle (kindle reader)
    • audible (audiobooks)
    • Jaadu RDP (remote desktop) <-- this one is a deal breaker for me

    I'd also be interested to know if the copy/paste functionality has improved at all. When I had my Droid, copy and pasting from the body of an email was almost impossible. You needed to hold down one of the tiny droid keyboard buttons and drag your finger across the screen to highlight the text. At that point if you highlight the wrong text you were S.O.L because it immediately copied the text as soon as you raised your finger from the screen. Please, please, please, tell me this has been improved!

    I'd love to get away from my iPhone so that I can delete iTunes forever.
