      My plan is to have the best of all the phone OS’s:

      1) Keep my iPod Touch – so I still get to use all the Apps I love (to own, actually, not to use so much, but they are damn good)
      2) Keep my old Nokia brick and maybe ‘upgrade’ to a smaller one – as a spare phone
      3) Plan to get Android based phone!!!!!

      There is a lot of writings on the net now predicting that Android will be the 2nd most popular phone OS after Apple.

      You’re like a mirror image of me before I got my HTC Hero. Deciding back and forth on which to get. iPhone 3Gs or Android? I am so enjoying it. Seeing your indecisiveness. At least I know, I was not alone. According to a report, Android will take over iPhone by 2012.

      No. It was on Android 1.5 (Donut) if I got my facts right. The newer Android 2.0 will not be available on all Android phones as of now. HTC Hero will be one of them to get it. šŸ™‚
