If your intent is to use Java to develop apps for the device, then Android is the obvious choice. Java is not supported on the iPhone.

(In fact, per clause 3.3.1 of Apple's agreement, "Applications must be originally written in Objective-C, C, C++, or JavaScript as executed by the iPhone OS WebKit engine...")

I am using Droid. This is my first ever smart phone. Impressive phone. Now and then I get ideas on apps. If you already know Java, you don't have to learn a separate language to play on Android.
