    Is it Apple iPhone( 4G is about the be released)? or some HTC android based phone?

    What do you think? I am thinking to buy and trying to decide one of the two.

    I haven't heard anything about Apple's 4G iphone but I use the 3G one which I feel has a very smooth touch. Don't know much about HTC but I have a friend who has HTC but I didn't find much of a difference. I think you can also have a look at the new Samsung Wave which is also due to be released;)

    EDIT: As you have mentioned that you want to choose only from those two I would say to go for Apple

    HTC Incredible (verizon) or HTC Evo (sprint).....1`GHz processor, they fly, they're iPhone killers.

    Apprantely the new iPhone (4th gen.) has a processor that can render many times the polygons of the current Snapdragons.

    I'm talking current..something right now.

    All that yet to be seen power of the upcoming iPhone 4g..and it can't do flash or multitask yet?

    By the time it's out (the iPhone 4g) ...HTC will have a faster one on the burner about to come out...they'll be doing 6 month product cycles much like ATI vs nVidia in the gaming graphics world. Seems the new iPhone 4g will be coming by mid summer....as the sudden huge sale of current stock is about to happen, witness the huge sale Walmart is about to have on them.

    Why the massive overstock of current iPhones? Because the Droids kicked it to #3 slot in sales...#1 = RIM, #2 = Droid, and iPhone slipped to #3 in sales volume.

    iphone 4g (and all ipod touch/iphone devices as well) will have multitasking with the new firmware.

    and the overstock of current gen iphones could also be a response to all the leaked photos of the iphone 4g and news that it will be announced at the next developers conference (i think thats what they call it) in June im pretty sure. so people dont really want to waste their money on old tech when they KNOW thers a new one right around the corner.

    I've yet to see the confirmed....I've only read "might have" and other speculation. The ones that mention it might have it..call it an "awesome new feature". Uhm..."new"? Welcome to what others have already been doing.

    ther is no speculation lol, its already been demonstrated at their LAST conference wen they showed the v4 firmware beta, people who are using the v4 beta (devs mostly) have the multitasking ability already, Jobs demonstrated the multitasking right on the stage lol... as well as the ability to create app folders and such.

    I had the Desire for a couple of weeks and I couldn't take a call while browsing the net or using apps on the internet.Their support couldn't fix it so I got rid.Beautiful phone otherwise though.

    Seems a god competition between Android phone and iPhone.

    I just wonder if the android phones by HTC are really smooth and slick like iPhone, esp the touch screen!

    Seems more of a network issue rather than phone itself!
    Do you have the same problem?

    Thanks

    And answer as to why:

    You are buying the network, not just the phone. Verizon Wireless has the better network hands down. So if you are really set on the iPhone, you'll be losing out on that. I have the Moto Droid and love it.

    Two weeks into my first experience with an Android phone (HTC Desire) - I am impressed. Its amazingly slick at running apps/tasks. Everything is really good, so far.

    Deals on Android phones in the UK are pretty amazing. I got my HTC Desire free on an 18 month contract @ £25 a month. For an Iphone ... I would have had to hand some cash upfront - I think the equivalent deal for Iphone requires nearly £200 for the phone ... + the 18 month contract price.
