    This would be great if my Droid X didn't crash and reboot 3 times a day.

    Re: Android 50% faster for web browsing than iPhone

    Just picked up a Thunderbolt. It is very quick. I had an Eris and always thought the internet connection was why the browsing was so slow, but now I realized that it was the phone's processing power. Even with still running 3g, it is almost as fast as my DSL connection at home.

    Re: Android 50% faster for web browsing than iPhone

    I picked up the Motorola Atrix about a month ago and love it. Went from an iPhone 3GS to it. Browsing is definitely faster and I love actually being able to visit websites with flash.


    Yeah TOAST!!!

    Love browsing on my Epic 4G. I never would have believed how much mobile browsing I would do if you would have tried to tell me before I had this thing.

    I hated my BlackBerry - and I love my Incredible. And I can't wait until I get my next one a year+ from now, because the technology is just bound to be better...

    Long live the smartphone wars...

    We all have our favorites. Each platform (BB, Android, iOS, WM7, etc.) has advantages over the other. Let's leave it at that.

    they might be slower then their Droid counterpart, but i love the apple design and the OS better.

    Re: Android 50% faster for web browsing than iPhone

    Right now I'm a fan of the iphone simply because it lets me keep my music in itunes and lets me only carry around one device instead of lugging a phone and an ipod. Although, if someone could suggest a better music app for android that would minimize the hassles of switching over, the words "firmly entrenched" come to mind.

    I'm not an iTunes user so I can't speak to it myself, but it seems like Doubletwist (I think that is the name of the app) comes up in regards to this time and time again. From what I have heard, it plays very nicely with iTunes. I'm sure there are some CFers out there that have direct experience and can comment on the app.

    Love my iPad2 and Android phone. Can do a lot on both platforms. I prefer the openness of Android, but I love the iOS because I can actually watch march madness and Netflix on it.

    Yeah doubletwist works fine. I can't complain about the Droid X too much because I had 3 Ipod Touches that bricked. Although Apple was good about replacing them each time.
