Talking me out of an iPhone

I’m in the market for a new smartphone and can’t decide what to buy.

My BlackBerry Curve has been a good phone but I just want something new and different. I’m not considering the highly-touted Palm Pre because it runs on the Sprint network, which is weak where I live.

So I’ve narrowed my choice to an iPhone or a device that runs on Google’s open source Android operating system, like the T-Mobile/HTC myTouch.

Today, some Android fans try to get me in their corner.
