are you all iphone owners?

my sony ericssons have always been ****.

I don't get it either. I have a Samsung Eternity that I use Pandora on ALL the time and I also watch TV (Flot TV) on everyday. I never have any issues.

As for choosing between the droid and the Eris I would go with the droid. Running android 2.0.1 is much nicer then running android 1.6. This weekend I will probably try the hack to upgrade to Android 2.1.
The Eris runs 1.5. HTC is supposed to be coming out with an update to 2.1 for the Hero and Eris sometime early next year.

P.S. I hate the droid ads. They make it out to be a ground breaking phone.
"the droid has a huge screen." So does the iPhone.
"the droid has access to thousands of apps." So does the iPhone.
"the droid, DOES." What exactly? Everything the iPhone does? Ever since the O.S. on the iPhone was updated with copy/paste and picture messaging (among other things), I can think of no reason to switch, mine's been amazing.
The droid does commercials are awesome! So shut your face.

The Droid has a flash with its camera, so take that.

Yes, posting from it now. This phone plus Verizon's 3g coverage means that I will be streaming Pandora and surfing online the whole way from Tampa to Panama City Beach.

My only gripe is the physical keyboard. It can blow sometimes, but. I might also just need to give it time.

It just takes some time to get used to the keyboard, although I still do occasionally make mistakes on it. Make sure you get a car charger if you plan on streaming for a whole trip.

THAT is my only gripe with the iPhone, you can't do anything else when you're listening to Pandora. I only use it in the car though, so I shouldn't be texting/browsing mt.net/etc anyways.

You're talking about the droid right?

curly, have you seen the droid screen? It is larger than the I phones, and beautiful. The higher resolution really makes web surfing better, its nice.

this is why i love the sony ericssons. I can be looking at google maps, browsing the web, and playing games all at the same time and switch between... and still get calls.

I have only needed to call someone once while I was browsing the web. That was at 5am on black Friday trying to see if any Dicks Sporting goods stores in the Raleigh NC area had 380 ammo in stock. Other then that if I am talking on my phone it is next to my ear. So I don't really understand the issue with not being able to talk and browse the web at the same time.

Ohh yah if anyone wants some roms for their droid shoot me a pm. It a ton of fun to play super mario on it and watch the iPhone kids get jealous.
