ok. its pretty clear that verizon has pretty much started competed with Apple & AT&T with their DROIDS, pretty much the best android phones on the market, maybe excluding the EVO 4G. They offer all these killing features that the iPhone lacks, but make it so you can pick and choose your features. If you want a keyboard, DROID 2 (R2D2) , if you want a large screen and a slim phone, you can go for the DROID X. If you want just alot of features, you can get the Droid Incredible. So, basically, if someone had to choose as their first smartphone on either network, i would not understand who at all would go to AT&T. Android Phones: Verizon Wins Service: Verizon Wins Data Plans: Verizon Wins if someone said they wanted the iPhone for the "iPhone part of it", they could get a Droid Incredible for $70 with contract from newegg, pop in a 16GB SD card, and then go pick up a refurb. iPT4. I've heard, and I might be wrong, that Apple gets money from the plans AT&T customers choose with their iPhones, and on top of that, the money they earn from profits from selling the iPhone 4 itself. So, why would verizon, when they have so many amazing phones and service, give in to Apple, so they can eat a huge junk of their profits, which would also take away profits from their DROID profits since I bet alot of people are eventually going to give in and get a DROID instead of waiting for a Verizon iPhone. please share your thoughts. and also, do HTC/Motorola keep money from the contracts customers buy with their DROIDS?
