Funny that everyone loves to rave about their iPhones and Androids but Blackberry just quietly sits there as the top seller!

Do any droid phones support Itunes?

That's my problem, I want to have all my songs/videos on my phone, but I hate AT&T, which is what you need for the Iphone.
They don't(as far as I know), but they do have an iTunes-esque media player app you can download.

I manually updated my Nexus One with Froyo about two weeks ago or so. It's awesome :)

And like with BlackBerry's, I think you can upload them to your phone just as easy with Winamp, right?

The speed at which Google is improving Android is pretty insane, to be honest. Can't believe there's going to be another big update at the end of the year.

By the way, does anyone else have the Gameboid app? The guy who makes all those emulators does such a good job of them. They're even better than the ones I've seen on the PC.

What about emails? Are BlackBerry's still winning that fight of being extremely efficient in that matter?
Well, I've had no problem using the Gmail app on any of the Android phones I've owned. I know you can use Microsoft exchange with Android as well. You can obviously set up Hotmail etc. as well.

Business market. Blackberries are a lot more secure than either Android or the iPhone. I mean, you can plug an iPhone into a linux based machine and view and copy all the files off it (that's even with a PIN on).

You can drag and drop them into your phone's memory card.

All Android updates have been called desserts so far. Cupcake, Eclair, Froyo ...

Yes, that was the code name for the update (the next one is Gingerbread). They always put a model of the food outside their main building around the time of the update.

HAHA thats ridiculous!! I'll have to try that on my stepdad's iPhone when I go back "home" and scare him a bit whilst also giving him another reason why linux is the best OS :p

I have a droid and love it.  Supposedly android 2.2 is coming shortly to droid. With that, there is a beta version of flash player available for 2.2. Very much looking forward to that.

Well, you should be. It's the best phone out according to techradar.com

I will wait, though, to see the new iPhone and see how much it has improved.

I recently got the droid HTC Eris as my graduation present. I'm really enjoying this phone, and the droid operating system is nothing short of impressive.

I think was someone asking about using iTunes with Android. An app has just been released that lets you stream music from iTunes via the web:

Also one for desktop syncing:

Why I will be eventually turning to Android?

Internet fellows are more interested in their apps rather the ones found in BlackBerry's. BB apps, technically, suck. Anyway, I think I still will wait a year or until December.

Yeah, they work pretty well.

I mean, I wouldn't use a game where you constantly have to have lightning fast reactions but yeah.

There's so many different ways you can have the buttons set up though. The controls are very flexible.
