Another iPhone Killer Like I haven't heard that every third during of the last few years whenever a new phone comes out. People need to make up their minds! Was it the phone that came out 3 days ago that was the iPhone Killer or is it this one. Wait! I'm sure it's the one coming out 3 days from now!

It was Android's multitasking that killed the iPhone for power users. The iPhone is great for stupid people, of which there are many.

The iPhone is great for stupid people? Wow, whatever. But anyways Apple did really well with their multitasking. The only thing that can kill the iPhone's multitasking is if developers don't update their apps with the new APIs. Probably all apps from now on are going to be able to multitask, but its just those older ones that need software updates. Most utilities, social networking apps, etc will update pretty quickly. It's just the games that might take a little longer to work with iOS4 multitasking. And you guys have to remember that multitasking is not just fast app switching. I don't know why people keep saying/thinking that. With iOS4, you can play music in the background, upload stuff, download stuff, finish loading a web page, track your location and other gps services, make skype calls, etc. I've used Android phones plenty of times and don't see anything that's really missing from iphone. That covers just about everything you need multitasking to do. Is there a specific multitasking function that you would personally like to see on the iPhone?

The iPhone is good for stupid people, most iPhone users will readily admit they are not good with technology which is WHY they use the iPhone. Also, after reading many of your posts in the last few days E.N., are you Steve Jobs?

E N you know nothing of multi tasking on a IPhone then. Thats how a ANDROID works with multi tasking, but the IOS 4 doesnt work that way, not now and probably not ever.

"Is there a specific multitasking function that you would personally like to see on the iPhone?" eh i really don't want to see a iphone at least not in my hands. not that it isn't a good phone but well i can't pull a lefty with the new one :P and android just works better for me. (i'm a power user not one of the stupid people) I still wonder how ios works when it needs to support 50+ models like all other os types do. don't hate apple just think they got it easy in there position.

iphone does not suck, say what you want but apple is the leader in technology. what sucks and is a joke is the carrier they tied themselves to. at&t is the problem.

apple may have been the leader in technology back in 2007 or even 2008 but now there are much better devices out. and since apple makes very little changes to each gen iphone, sooner or later you will pick up an iphone and go, nextttt.

"We're not going to beat around the bush -- in our approximation, the iPhone 4 is the best smartphone on the market right now. The combination of gorgeous new hardware, that amazing display, upgraded cameras, and major improvements to the operating system make this an extremely formidable package. Yes, there are still pain points that we want to see Apple fix, and yes, there are some amazing alternatives to the iPhone 4 out there. But when it comes to the total package -- fit and finish in both software and hardware, performance, app selection, and all of the little details that make a device like this what it is -- we think it's the cream of the current crop." - Engadget Sorry dude, but iphone isn't going anywhere.

the fact that the iphone is updated does not make it the god phone. people's judgment for the iphone is clouded by their love for apple. the refuse to try anything else even though there are better things out there.

Cnet editor reviewing the iphone 4- "and keeping--a strong connection continues to be a challenge. Even in the first few moments testing the device, we had a dropped call, even though we had full bars. We also had a couple of calls that failed to connect in an area where we knew that AT&T reception is good"

I'm sure there's an iPhone forum somewhere that actually cares about what you have to say.

Agreed! Same with Blackberry. I've got a ton of friends that I introduced to Blackberry about 2 years ago and now I have switched to Android and can't get them to budge. Granted I am a bit of tech geek, but actually so are a few of them and I still can't get them to budge! I was a little sad about leaving my BBM friends, but the TOTAL AWESOMENESS of the Android OS WAY outweighs anything BB is offering right now.......and by the looks of it, anything they have to offer in the future. (I was pulling for you RIM, but you are running way behind in the game at this point and I gotta catch up!) Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but it's just the fact that they don't even realize how much better Android is than BB just because they won't let go of their BB's long enough to even give it a chance! C'mon people! Let's be just a little open-minded here. Anyway, it just irks me that the new technology coming out is so awesome and some people just refuse to let go of the old and embrace the new. Oh well, enough of my soapbox rantings. Their loss! I've gone Android for good and don't miss my BB at all. Can't wait to get my DROID X on July 15!

What is funny is that my wife downloaded the iOS4 on 6/21 and was giddy with excitement at having a "NEW" phone....the multitasking and folder organization for apps was already with my HTC ARIA - again, the ARIA is a great phone - rather have HTC than a motorola product.....

iphone killers, huh? hahahahaha. someone should call apple. theres no way they'll be able to tell with iphone 4 completely outselling the preorder on the first day. 300,000 units in just a few hours of PRESALE! 13 million visits in the first day to the presale site?? apple is going to be so surprised to find out their device has been killed. android devices are great, but the iphone is pretty far from going away. i hope you see the door apple has left open to release the iphone 4G next summer. i dont like it, but they will sell a new phone to the exact same people every summer. get used to it.

Just because people continue to buy it doesn't mean there isn't something better; I sell plenty of Samsung Knacks.

There is one question that is still unanswered for me....does this phone support DivX, and would i be able to transfer and play my .avi video files on the phone? because with past android phones, including droid and incredible i wasnt able to. thanks

Funny thing is I've always been an Iphone slappy. I got my new Iphone 4 yesterday and after about 10-15 min I began to think. Wow this was over hyped. I am finally released from the apple spell. I put my iphone on craigslist and will be switching to Verizon to buy this bad boy. I look forward to giving Android a look.

Wow! That is awesome. Makes me feel better about getting this phone. Even tho iPhone has never been an option for me (absolutely no AT&T service where I live), I have always felt it was just out of my reach. But hearing comments like this make me think I am also out of the iPhone spell. Never actually had it, but now never actually need/want it. Thanks for the input!

Anyone know if Verizon is waiving yearly upgrade times as well or just the two year upgrade time? Thanks

I heard that VZW is allowing anyone who will come available for an upgrade in 2010 to do an early upgrade to get the Droid X.

Yea it says that in the article. My concern is if they are talking about being due after their 2 year contracts are up. Or will the one year upgrade condidions be included as well. I can do a one year upgrade in October of this year. Just curious if that counts.
