i doubt it'd kill it, there are a lot of android phones

that being said, it'd sell a shitload of phones

is android in the coffin right now waiting for the final nail?   i thought they were selling and doing well.       and i don't think it will be bad for them.   i think android phones are on a roll right now.     looking strong.        i think there's enough room for them both.

I don't think it will kill Android but I do think it may cause some people to switch to the iPhone who are unwilling or unable to use AT&T for one.

Here in the UK, the iPhone is offered on all 5 major networks and despite this, Android is still on the rise. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/07/27/uk_android_sales/

The sudden rush of new VZ iPhone customers will be big tho.

ya.. iphone name alone, no matter what will sell it.       it's like a Wii.      i don't know what it does, but it's called a Wii, and everyone has one, and they like it!   i want one too!   :D

i had the motorola droid generation one. then i switched to iphone and im glad i did. i personally just dont like the style and layout of the android system. it is too blocky and plain in my opinion.

two years later and both seem to be doing quite well for themselves, right?  It's a big market...
