The only reason I am getting an iphone and not an android device is because of the task manager! I am currently using a palm pre plus and so multitasking is just part of the experience and i dont want to go from swiping my finger to close an app to opening a completely different app to close an app that doesnt always stay closed!

Androids have a task manager. Just press and hold the home key.

I plan on pre-ordering tonight. I've been waiting on any news of Windows Phone 7 for Verizon since before launch. I have had Zune devices since their launch in 2006 and Windows promised Windows Phone 7 to other carriers by holiday time. I have heard no news of WP7 on any other carrier except T-moblie or possibly Sprint. I love the Zune Pass and want it on a phone and thought it would come to Windows 6.5, but they launched 6.5 and it rapidly went to the weigh side (sorry if mis-spelled). After years of waiting I'm done. My Imagio is glitching heavy and the speaker went out, I'm going to the other side and trying what has already been established as a great product with a lot of support. I may like the look and feel of Zune more, but severe lack of support and news from Windows has me switching. Sorry for the rant, just needed to vent a little.

@ATTCallCenter WRONG!!! APPLE IPHONE no adobe flash, no expandable memory, cant replace the battery yourself, wont be 4g, that damn 32 pin charger port that dont match non of the 5 micro usb car and house and usb cables that I already have. almost all of the good apps have a pricetag, but it has facetime and its pretty, nice pretty phone there guys looks good with your skinny jeans (beer commercial lmao) as opposed to ANDROID adode flash (i just streamed denzel movie "unstoppable" on my droid x and no i didnt pay for it just streamed it from zshare) expandable memory up to 32gb so far and internal memory, replacable battery (just incase you want to have a extra battery charged), now having front facing cameras, 8mp camera, tons of good free apps, can return an app, no syncing required just log back into google if you get a different android device and retreive all of your numbers and paid apps,some apps can be saved to your memory card ,NEW (as of today)google marketplace online where you can purchase apps and free apps and they start downloading to your phone right then without connecting anything. fast fast fast, text to speech, the best input method since the qwerty keyboard SWYPE, plenty of flavors and style to choose from not just one that keeps getting changed every 1 year or so. Fully customizable now how is apple better??? how

joejoe, if you are talking about me in your comments, then this is for you! No the DroidX doesn't have dual core, and only 3g, but I'm not boasting it either. As the owner of the original Droid, Droid2, Fascinate and now the DroidX I can tell you that yes I have had experience with the HTC Thunderbolt with the help of a floater. Don't need to get in that either which is why I will be up at 3 am when the Thunderbolt is ready for pre-order.
