This is great news for all!!! Competition always rules, and the best one will be found.
My $.02: I do not care for being stuck with proprietary hardware or software. As an IT pro myself, I think that Apple and AT&T are stupid in their past business approach with the iPhone and its service. This same thing happened to SLOW @SS 2 back in the day. And now we have better OS's because of it! Again, all of this competition will only create better products and service for all. I will definitely check out the Droid and Verizon at the end of my iPhone/AT&T contract and recommend everyone that has an iPhone to do the same.

With some of the horror stories that I've read of people attempting to get service on a jailbroken device, having piece of mind is fantastic.
Aside that, I just felt this to be the fitting time to inject some humor into an otherwise hostile thread. I find it fitting with the whole "0MGAR T3H VIRU53S H4VE ***X0R3D MAH H4RD DR1VEZ!!!"
BTW: My $1200 rig will walk all over any Mac you own.

I had a chance to use a Droid for a few days and I have to say I wasn't impressed. I am glad that they have rooted it tho.

so if apple doesnt allow root access unless you jailbreak, then how can verizon say that "everything idont, droid does" false advertising. i would like to see what can be done with the droid in the right hands but im not getting one, im waiting until my contract is up next year and get the 4th gen iphone which in doubt should be much better than anything else on the market by then!Originally Posted by ??????

These are a couple sites that have quite a bit of information on Android powered devices currently.
I think what people may be assuming about Android powered devices when they hear "open source" is that applications such as widgets are created by different companies. While unbranded HTC phones had a set group of widgets, those same ones may not have been available in a US market phone because the provider wanted to sell the phone with a different set of widgets.
While you can quickly and easily install user modified widgets in .apk files, some are easier set up by including them in a "cooked" ROM so they are installed immediately.
Imagine being able to install a non-Apple firmware. Even more advanced than "pwning" a .ipsw file, these custom ROMs allow any number of changes to be made. From a completely different dialer or implementation of the integrated Facebook client, these changes can be made on the level of the ROM itself before you load it on the phone.
How nice would it be to create a custom FW for your iphone, throw it on a storage directory, then reboot the phone into a custom boot loader? From there you could decide if you just wanted to install the FW, or if you wanted to do a full factory wipe and reinstall? How would you like the freedom to install 3.0 or 3.0.1 again if you missed getting your hashes, or were never able to in the first place?
There is something to be said about being able to not worry about signed FW from Apple, or their telling you exactly what you can and can't build on your phone. The jailbreak community has some fantastic minds, but imagine what more they could do with the type of access that the Android devs have on those phones.
If anyone on these forums can't see a major benefit in such a thing, I don't know how to get them to believe anything about the possibilities of phones which are easily modified.
