My contract for my original iPhone 3G is up and I'm in the market for a new smartphone. I'm currently kind of pissed at Apple because the iOS 4.0 update really crippled my iPhone 3G, rendering it impossibly slow. This is the kind of crud that Microsoft used to pull (Vista, anyone?) and I'm kind of getting sick of the closed environment that iOS represents.
Nonetheless, the iPhone 4 is a huge temptation, as is the couldn't-be-worse-named iPad. One consideration is that I almost never do voice calls -- maybe 15 minutes a month, tops. So there, the iPad's data-only plan is good. But it's way too large. If I could get the iPad data plan with the iPhone form factor.... (and no, an iPod Touch wouldn't work since it doesn't have mobile data, which I need).
Anyway, so I guess I'm really forced into a smartphone. Any thoughts gentle readers on the Droid X and Evo 4G? New Haven isn't a Wimax/4g city so the Evo's greatest feature is worthless here.
Found a useful infographic online:
Any and all thoughts welcome.
Jason -- what are you running these days?
Here's another good info link: http://www.tipb.com/images/stories/2010/06/iphone4_droidx_incredible_evo4g_nexusone1.jpg
What I'm trying to find is a good link to compare voice/data plans between the various carriers....
