Let me start by saying that I'm sure this has been covered but a search revealed nothing and an updated discussion can always help. So again, sorry for covering treaded ground, but here we go... I'm leaving my job and giving up my company blackberry - so I need a new phone/carrier/the whole package. I am at this point pretty darn addicted to smartphones and use them heavily for web browsing, email, maps, twitter, playing music, and scheduling myself (I don't really play games though). While my blackberry curve was leagues better than my old Windows Mobile-powered-Wing it still has left a lot to be desired. I need a step up. So its basically iphone vs an Android phone and while the iphone seems to win in nearly all the benchmarks out there, I just can't get past the Apple Tax, closed platform, non-replaceable battery, and my general Google fanboy-ism. I could also see myself developing OSS apps at some point - which Android has the more compelling story for. Further research has lead me to view my options as the Nexus, HTC Droid, or Eris. The Eris - although it has great reviews - just seems a bit kiddie so it's a distant third. My concerns are in this order * Good hardware (I'm ok with an onscreen keyboard unless the touchscreen sucks) * Total cost of ownership * Ability to use at my new job (meaning syncing with Exchange Server - though this shouldn't be a huge problem) * Snazzy Operating system So what do you guys think about my options? I hear the Droid is less buggy than the Nexus but this infographic from billshrink seems to imply that it is a far more expensive option. Since it's older that is very surprising. Does this seem accurate? Also, whats up with the Nexus specs? 4GB - can I use a micro SD card? What are your opinions? I'm really just looking to engage in a discussion on this topic.
