    Is this going to happen or not?

    I hear people saying it's a done deal (to be released in January or February of 2011) while others say "that's stupid; there's no way it happens."

    My phone just broke (for the third consecutive Christmas Eve :sad2:). My 5+ year old iPod broke recently as well. Makes sense to get the iPhone... if it actually comes to Verizon.

    Of the phones Verizon has to offer, what would my best option be?

    I don't expect to get many responses to this for a while, and that's totally cool. No rush. Merry Christmas!

    Can't go wrong with the Droids, they're basically the same thing as the iPhone.

    Who needs an iPhone these days? Better products with better service available...for less.

    One thing I will say is I don't think Droids have any music players, if that's important to you.

    But the new Windows Mobile 7 has the Zune interface... which kicks the crap out of the iTunes one.

    Still will never understand buying an mp3 player merely for apps.

    Last time I played with a Zune was about two years ago, but they seemed almost identical to me.

    I love my IPhone 4......My buddy has a droid that I've played with......... IPhone4 > Droid.

    Only problem with the IPhone is that it's delicate. Make sure you buy a case for protection. I took mine out of the case on halloween and dropped it. The glass cracked, but still usable. $225 to fix, $700 to replace.........Otherwise, it's pretty much just a mini-laptop.

    I'm still going to prefer an iPhone over any other.

    I take it no one knows for sure about it coming to Verizon?

    The HD screen of iPhone 4 is unrivaled by any of the other mediaphones. Photos etc are simply as crisp and vibrant as the human eye can see. That alone is a big enough difference to go with iPhone.
    And in regard to Mac v PC - I'm running both on my desk at work now and Mac dogs PC.
    If I'm working on the Mac for a while I swear it's like going to sepia when I have to switch back to PC...
