:lol: Yeah what ever......

Iphone shite battery life. Other than that I honestly can't think of any other bad points. So many decent apps now. You can get just about everything you ever wanted.

Crackberry, much better email client than the Iphone, more business orientated than a personal phone. Plus I know 2 people that have had the latest models & they keep getting call drop outs.

02 3G coverage "seems" to be much better than Vodaphones.

I see Apple are taking HTC (yes, I've never heard of them either) to court for, wait for it, copying features of the iPhone. :lol:

If email is your main driver go for the Blackberry.

If apps are the main driver go for the iPhone.

If you just want a phone buy anything.

If you want the web, a half decent camera and a fully featured smartphone then go for the HD2: huge 4.3" screen, pinch to zoom etc, the ability to seamlessly sync with MSExchange, a complete browsing experience include the ability to see Flash-enabled websites, the ability to see high resolution divx and xvid video, removable battery and storage and a 5mp camera.

HTC HD2 and Apple iPhone 3GS: side by side

I see it as a bonus that the HD2 isn't as common as the iPhone as well. Every cunt's got an iPhone now, they even sell them in Tesco you know. ;)

Blackberry has much better battery life (several days instead of several hours) but the internet browser is far inferior to the iphone's.

The fundamental difference for me was touch screen vs buttons - I prefer pressing buttons so got the Blackberry :lol:
