personally I would go for Android os at the moment, but all things change very quickly. Over the past 18 months have used touch diamond, xperia, touch pro and have recently started using a hero, and I have to say that it feels and looks much better than any of the WinMo phones. But having said that I had a G1 on Android when they first came out and preferred the WinMo devices when I started using them.
iPhone - average device now, but still a phenomenal app store and can see an announcement in the new year. iPhone will always be more of a niche market in the same way as the Mac.
I'm looking forward to this coming out and will be buying one.
If you are wanting all of the .xls .doc etc, then like others have commented, get a netbook/laptop or even a tablet pc, there's going to be plenty of those to choose from in 2010. Going to be a great year for the gadget freaks amongst us!
Guys stop comparing this phone with the iphone....
This phone is gonna be announced on Jan 2010 and iphone 3gs was released during july 2009... Didnt u notice the gap....And 3gs was not even a totally new thing,It was just a revamp of the previous model...
Every month or every 15 days atleast 1 new moblile is announced with added capabilities...
Well iphone has a group of followers and so does most of the brand...
When a new iphone is announced this jan then would be the right time to compare...
Apple Iphone days are over, because this phone has better specs, better OS and the finally the cost of it is very cheaper and yet still unlocked. Gosh it gets released in India too, it will sell like hotcakes or candy.
M20, 30 Dec 2009From the things I've seen, Anriod is much better.
With anriod you can add apps(and more).. I ... moreDude if u havent tried then don't talk bout it
If u had seen HTC HD2 u would not say that about windows phones
as for this phone, this is going to be an awesome phone with android yes i believe this is gonna overtake droid
About the OS depending on what u need to do, different OS's r better
Like on Productivity I dont think any one will argue no os is above windows mobile

Comparing it with iPhone are you?
How about multitasking out of the box to start with.
And the very widely used bluetooth file transfer.
1 GHz processor, 512 MB RAM.
And yes internal memory, how about almost unlimited external memory by virtue of External MicroSD card slot so use can use multiple cards.
iPhone, well don't take Nexus One so low, it should be compared with HD2 atleast.

This isn't a website for you! From the info we have seen, this looks great. I guess we will see what thing is like after jan.05 when the reviews start popping out. Personally, i can't wait!
This is what all the excitement is about?? There is nothing here that's spectacular. If this had a 12MP camera on it that recorded 1280x720 HD video at 30FPS, with a great lens, both Xenon and LED flashes, plus the things missing from Android, then I could see some excitement. But this?? It's nothing more than an iPhone 3GS without all the built in memory, which is inexcusable.
When is Android going to get equalizer settings and the ability to create your own custom equalizers like Symbian? And how about some customizable profiles like Symbian has? Hey, maybe this one will actually be able to run more than 6 applications at once too.
STrange all this debate about os supremacy, well its personal preference.I personally believe that wm offers more customisation freedom, like working eclairs and dounut os in wm phones, iphone winterboard already there. Haven't seen a plain program that runs divx/xvid in android yet. ms Office is than a dream for Dream owners!!
This is a dream phone. Every thing you want is probably here.
Price is said to be US$ 530. How true is that?
Priced similar to HTC MAgic, huh...
3.7" AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 480 x 854 pixels resolution, 1 GHz Snapdragon processor with 512MB RAM(!!!), 5MP camera, 1400 mAh Li-Ion battery.
This is dream...
i was first thinking of getting the motorola milestone or the htc legend ( which is due to come in march according to the leaked htc road map )..........but this is my next phone now....
3.5 mm jack
1 gz processor and rest the other specs......where do you get all these features in a phone costing 530 usd
the best is nokia symbian platform lots of apps available in the market for the same so people trust nokia buy nokia
All of you WinMo lovers who are claiming that Windows is fast/fine/superior/blaa blaa blaa are talking from your rectums!
I am currently an HTC HD2 user, have had Vario 3, Touch HD, Vario 2 etc over the years so pretty fair to say i am historically a primary WinMo user.
I bought an HTC Hero to see what the fuss was with Android and it is plain and simply MUCH better than WinMo hands down backside-whoopingly better! Fast (and thats with a processor half the speed of this one!) fluid and well thought out and best of all, not full of bugs, random slow downs for no apparent reason, non-finger friendly layouts etc like the WinMo is. I bought the HD2 as i thought it would solve the WinMo problems due to it's processor counteracting any slow downs, the new sense UI solving Microsfots rubbish design and to be fair HTC have tried hard to cover up WinMo failures however it just isn't solvable. I am more of a power user than day to day run of the mill pleasure user but there is no denying that Android blows Winmo out of the water!
Open your eyes WinMo devotees as even us long established WinMo users can see when we are honest and give it a decent try for a bit that Google is MILES ahead and the apps are nearly all free!!!
Guillermo, 30 Dec 2009"Google releases all the products in beta only, I have never seen any full version from Google... more"Windows Mobile is an obsolete OS, it's fast on recent smartphones because is old. It's like saying Win98 is better than Win7 because is faster. I just hope MS really put effort into WM7."
Have you even used it? It's fast? Do you know how sluggish it was on the Omnia II? And that had a 800Mhz ARM11 CPU. Hardly Cortex A8, but still.
"Google releases all the products in beta only, I have never seen any full version from Google"
Yet Google betas are far more stable than Microsoft releases...
Windows Mobile is an obsolete OS, it's fast on recent smartphones because is old. It's like saying Win98 is better than Win7 because is faster. I just hope MS really put effort into WM7.
As for this phone, i think it's the best Android phone on the market to the date. Even better than the Motorola Milestone overall, 1 less led flash and no keyboard for better processor, more RAM, lighter and thinnest, wifi n support...
