    No harm, we just can't believe it :P
    I came from extensive use of jailbroken iPhone OS on an iPt 2G and I also got bored of it, still use it for games though.
    Luckily my rooted Hero still satisfies me I think I'll stick to Android for a while
    There's lots of little niggles with Android on the N1 which annoy me. I've found I don't use any apps more than like once or twice on Android despite having downloaded quite a few. I use my old iPhone solely for Angry Birds, which is easily the best game on any mobile device ever. I was very close to getting an upgrade to the Dell Streak but I didn't because I just can't make up my mind about it.

    It's a shame that your first foray in to Android was with a Rosie device, and not one using Sense. Never mind. As for the Streak... too big for a phone, too small for a MID...

    Android has a better UI, Apple has the better Apps.

    As for best hardware and functionality, I'd say HTC Evo 4G ***** all over iPhone 4 tbh. HDMI out? Yes please!

    Plus, you know, Android does Flash...

    iPhone 4 ***** over the Nexus One that's for sure...

    I'm eagerly awaiting 1.3Ghz Snapdragon and the 1.5Ghz Scorpion, which should surely **** over the iPhone 4.

    for sure? i mean apart from the improved screen and front camera (which is lower quality anyway), don't really see much of a 'wow' factor that the iphone 3gs had.

    I really wish someone would invent a new battery technology so that battery life isnt a problem! can't be arsed to charge every day.

    So, it's upgrade time for me, too!

    I currently have iPhone 3GS, but I have no idea whether to upgrade to 4 (I love the App Store, and I also love the way that the iPod is integrated) or whether to go for the Desire. I know this is the Android thread, but is there really much of a difference between them? (Apart from the fact that I can get the Desire for £49.99...)

    Got my Desire through this morning and I've been playing with it non-stop; I've ran the battery down 1.5 times in about 6-7 hours. So far, I cannot fault it, though I find that with prolonged heavy use it can get quite hot - but I guess that's because I've been raping it today.

    Any apps people can suggest? I've got the app kill, googleEarth, google sky map, movies, picsay and shazam, so far - though I see what people mean now by wanting 2.2 to come out soon, it'd be very useful to use the 4GB memory card for apps...

    Could you give me like a 2 work summary on what 3G watchdog, wefi and papertoss do? (I've got the BBC News widget, and it is awsome :gah: )

    3G Watchdog monitors your data usage, you let it know how much you are allowed to use and when your month renews. It sits in the notifcation blind (and has a widget) and tells you what percentage you are at/projected usage for the month.

    WeFi, essentially it drains your battery. If you leave it running when out and about it will systematically seek out any open wifi hotspots and attempt to connect. Saving you data but sacrificing battery.

    My favourite and recommended apps at the moment are:

    Air Horn
    AndExplorer
    File management tool
    ChompSMS Better than the standard SMS on the phone
    FxCamera improved camera with effects
    Gmote allows you to control your PC keyboard and mouse and acts a remote control for your music (works over wifi network)
    Labyrinth addictive marble maze game
    Maps and Navigation invaluable and infinitely useful, I use these all of the time (like in London on Sunday to locate the nearest tube to where I had parked my car).
    MySettings Quick access to all the main connectivity, volume and contrast settings, I prefer this to widgets, which slow my old Magic down a lot.
    Opera 5 Amazing fast browser which also uses less data than the stock browser.
    Photobucket Uploads all my photos to the internet so I can store, share and save.
    Ringdroid Allows you to cut up mp3s into ringtone sized bites
    Seesmic IMO the best Twitter client
    Speed Test For checking your data speed
    Tunee Music Allows you to download music to your phone, works really well, don't know if it's legal
    Wapedia Quick wikipedia explorer, allows you to explore other wikis too.
    Wefi Really handy for connecting quickly to wifi networks, and it doesn't drain your battery if you remember to kill the app once you're connected.
