iPhone 3GS.

But I want an Android phone. The HTC Desire looks very nice. When the contract for my iPhone ends (which is not before the end of 2011...) I'll have a look what Android phones will be available by then and choose a nice one.

I want an Android phone because programming for it is much easier (I've tried Objective-C for the iPhone but didn't like it) and you're not subject to Apple's stranglehold on the iPhone app store.

I've been using the HTC Desire for about 2-3 weeks and I'm very impressed.

My wife has an iPhone and my last phone was a Nokia N95. IMO the iPhone is good, as far as it goes, but by being easy to use it sacrifices some versatility. Out of the box the HTC Desire doesn't compare (again all in my opinion) but after a few weeks I am gradually getting it set up the way I want it.

eg
The iPhone has icons as does the HTC, but the HTC icon links to the application while the iPhone icon is the application. If you remove the iPhone icon (too easy to do by grubby fingered children, in my experience!) then the app is uninstalled, while in the HTC you just need to readd the icon to the screen. You can also have the icon in multiple places. The HTC also has 'widgets' that attach to the screen so for example I always have one screen out of seven dedicated to a photo slide show using a full screen widget. None of this makes or breaks the phone, just some little points of difference.

iPhone isn't enslaving any one.
iPhone isn't for every body's taste neither Android, neither any other device.
If you don't like the iPhone, don't buy it.

IMVHO:
* Google doesn't care about Android market all, doesn't care about the apps quality and doesn't care about the users.
Just check into Android market to see all kinds of trashy apps not to mention the illegal use of many registered trade marks.
All what they care about is to prevent Apple from getting all the ads revenues of mobiles.
* Google doesn't employ an approval policy in Android market not because the believe in the freedom of developers and users.
They don't have an approval policy because they know it brings a lot of headaches and even they want to deploy such a policy, they can't find a policy better than Apple's.
Google isn't really different from Apple, Microsoft and Oracle.
After all they are money making machines...

I'm the very proud owner of the HTC Desire. It's a great phone and would not trade it for any other phone (even the iLockIn ehm... I mean the iPhone ) But that's just me.

LG RD 6600


It's got voice calls and SMS.
For everything else I got a Canon S2iS, iPod and Mac/Ubuntu. For me a phone should be a phone.

If a phone can be a phone + some more features why woudn't one want it?

For example my 5800 is a good phone + excellent music player(with a senheiser headphone) can be compared with ipod + good video player,comes with 8 GB memory card + internet browser (opera, wifi/gprs) + office editor(quick office) + ebook reader (adobe pdf )+ mobile camera quality(can't compare it with canon) + some games like chess, skyforce reloaded + maps with GPS + smart applications like auto profile changer with timer, calendar & gps options + auto answering , call recording or terminating application + some more....

what do you say??

I got my HTC Desire here in Oz, but it was zero up front and essentially the same contract as I was on previously.
