I have used palm, crackberry, iOS, Droid and iOS again over the years. They have all been enjoyable at times and frustrating at others. In my opinion droid and iOS are not that far off in terms of usability/functionality. I went back to, and stay with, iOS because at the end of the day...Apple support, equipment consistency and seamless (most of the time) integration of software updates is just so much superior to Droid. But that is my opinion and your mileage may vary. My clock is set so I am up and ready to go on 10/27.
