*puts new phone purchase on hold*

Nah, I mean, it's tempting, but 1) I hate Sony Ericsson phones and 2) I'm never buying the first version of a phone again.

Verizon looks to be releasing their version of the EVO on 11/23. I also hear the Droid 2 Global will be released for the holiday. I love my Incredible, but it not being global was kinda annoying. I had to switch back to my Storm for a week. It wasn't fun.

I'm so sick of my Blackberry. Seriously considering paying the non-upgrade price for an EVO 4G.

Anyone reading up on the CES convention? So many Android Devices coming out this year. From new phones to Tablets. Damn I want the OS 3.0 Honeycomb.

Is that only (for now) going to be with tablets or is it going to be on newer model phones as well? A friend and I were arguing about this the other day.

I can't see most of Honeycomb's unveiled features being useful on a phone, but they will probably have slightly altered versions like Apple does with iOS.

I haven't looked much into it, I'm just kind of surprised they'd call it 3.0 if it's not for the cell phones themselves. I'd think it'd be referred to by something else.

Anyways, that fucking awful Moto Cliq finally broke, don't know if I mentioned that in this thread. So, what am I going to do for a new phone? Stick with Andriod? Sure. Stick with Motorola? Eh, why not, I've used Moto phones almost my entire cell phone life and that was the first one to be that godawful. Getting the Moto Defy next week.

Got the Samsung Transform the other day and damn, it feels good to have a smartphone. Had to get an app-killer app to close the processes since my battery life leaves a little to be desired, but it's all good now.

Do Android OS upgrades come out like Apple's iOS or are you stuck with it as long as you have your phone?

They are available at the carrier's discretion and if they're compatible with your phone, it's a mess really, phones get left behind a lot quicker than with Apple.

Personally I had always been a Samsung user until I needed a new phone last September, I'm a Mac and iPad user and the iPhone 4's design was really tempting, but then Samsung came out with the Galaxy S line and the contracts with any other smart phone are lighter on the wallet, so I was tempted by the Captivate. That is until I found out the GPS was essentially useless on that phone. Then I found the HTC Aria, and it really is the perfect smartphone for me, it's fully featured but it's so muc smaller than every other bulky slab phone, and as someone who keeps their phone in their pocket, smaller was better. The only thing that let me down was the camera quality, oh well I have plenty of high resolution cameras. So I guess I have a mobile computing rivalry going on in my life being an iOS and Android user.

I was reading that Honeycomb will likely be just for tablets, but that Ice Cream will have tablet and phone versions. And that there may be a 2.4 Gingerbread update around summertime that may incorporate a few Honeycomb-ish tweaks on phones.

Wow there are so many new Android devices being launched it's crazy. Verizon seems to be getting the bulk of them. They are getting the HTC Thunderbolt, and now the Xperia with PSP built in so you can download PSP games and play them on your device.

There is also the Xoom by Motorla coming out with Honeycomb which blows the ipad out of the water, the only issue I have with the Xoom is the price!!! 1199.99 are they crazy!

So, I haven't actually got my new phone yet, but I AM buying it tomorrow. Trying to choose between the MyTouch 4G and the Moto Cliq 2 (I know, I know lol). Advice?

Argh...given Motorola's track record of (not) updating phones not named Droid, I'd go with the MyTouch 4G.

I'd go with the G2 myself (and did, and am very very happy with it... )
