I'm in the opposite boat, I just got a new iPhone 3GS 8GB and so far I think it's awesome. Of course, my previous phone was a Samsung Impression...

This is just me, but i've never met anyone who was a 'blackberry fan'. Everyone i know seems to use HTCs at the moment, and the few blackberry users i know dont like them much.
I've got an Android phone, but you should check the hardware specs, since mine seems awfuly slow to boot and it's not the fastest, but when I bought it, I knew nothing about smart phones, until I started to figure out I had version 1.5 and Motorola and the great customer service, well, they just won't give an update to it.

Oh well, always best served by yourself; got it rooted and slapped a custon ROM on it. It's better, but I still feel like it could of been done with better hardware (Talking about April 2010 here).

i think the best phones ive seen recently will be the Galaxy S, Desire Z/HD, iPhone 4 and N8.

although, i think personally iOS has the best integration, with the app stores and itunes and what not.


EDIT: this guy sums up quite nicely my experiences with BB phones lol

He's got the point for the keyboard. I hate, HATE the keyboard! My fingers are big, but really, this...I could press the whole keyboard with one finger. It's ridiculous.

anyway, rohan, be careful as hell with it lol.

the battery doors are total tat, they seem to always be falling off, and a friend of mine dropped his off of one of the chairs at work (probably about a foot, foot and a half high) and it shattered into about 4 pieces, including the battery falling out. The batteries seem to be naff too, i've seen one caked in leaked acid from a single drop. i've dropped my iphone off the chairs plenty of times (it has a Gear4 'bumper' style thing on it though) and it doesnt even have a dent.

thats my 2 cents on the physical aspect. lol
