Searching for Credible iPhone Alternatives

picture-41I’m a Sprint subscriber and have been so since roughly 2000. I don’t have an “all you can eat” plan but I have a family plan that one cannot buy today and it’s very cost-effective. In addition, the Sprint network is faster than AT&T and Verizon’s networks. I would like to stay with Sprint. However, I’m finding it hard to avoid the “gravitational pull” of the iPhone.

The rest of this post is at Local Mobile Search.

    It’s hard to resist the pull Greg. I have been an AT&T sub for years due to inertia. The only reason I am still with AT&T is because of the iPhone. The voice network blows – doesn’t work well in my home and don’t try using it on the west side of Manhattan. That said, I am almost indifferent to the voice problems because the web browsing is great (albeit still not fast enough) and whomever I was talking to when the call dropped will eventually call back – hopefully.

    And why no comments on LocalMobileSearch?

    Well Greg.. I gotta say I am not a fanboy (although Herzog would peg me as one).. but the iPhone is fantastic. The best touch screen on the market. G1 is the only one close for how well it functions. The App store is great, and focusing on the fact that developers will have to build for ONE screen resolution, ONE OS and for the most part a single set of features (sans iphone/iTouch differences).. it will continue to provide valuable apps and extending your use of it on a regular basis. It will be a while before there are strong competitors for what is proving to be an amazing mobile computing platform. OK, maybe I am a fanboy.

    Good luck in your search though.. the new Nokia, the G1 and a few others are actually good devices as well.

    Jeff: Thanks. I’m pretty familiar with all the reasons to buy an iPhone — I have an iPod Touch currently.
