    Go for an android phone. iPhones are lovely and all, but being tied to using iTunes, and being tied to Apple would drive me mad.

    Stay free of Big Brother, go Android
    @alan-d: which app? I haven't been able to find one that works on my Desire

    I was going to get the Desire but Vodafone told me they didn't have any stock. They offered me the Legend instead and I must say I'm very very impressed with it. They also knocked another £5 off my line rental every month for the trouble too. :-D

    But thats only for apps and downloads. It still sends location data to Apple and its partners.

    Apple have forced you to agree to new T&C for using the store.


    Every android app warns you.
    You can opt of of google location services and you are not opted in by default.
    You can still use google maps without agree to share all info.

    It was posted here on another thread - it's basic but it has worked on the couple of occasions I have used it. ProxySetting-signed.apk - proxysetting - ProxySetting v1.0 (available on the Android Market) - Project Hosting on Google Code

    Definitely go for the Desire. I have had mine for a few months now, upgraded from the G1, and what an improvement! Market seems to be getting much better and many more quality apps.

    As for the location permission on apps, it is required for any ads, that is a bit of a pain.

    I'm getting a Galaxy S. Massive screen with awesome performance. It has loads of cool stuff too, like Allshare which is a DLNA app to stream to and from compatible devices, as well as acting as a bridge. Codec support includes DivX and h.264.

    Doesn't support authentication, though.

    My sons gf has one and it does look very good. Seems a bit on the chunky side though. (The phone, not his gf )

    Really!! that's more than what I expected. I have the 16gb iphone 3g. still, I think Mazzuma will probs not pay out as much once the iphone 4 is well established

    Do something interesting and get a non-Google, non-Apple phone. There're plenty out there.

    Otherwise you're just playing into the hands of the Great Lizard Conspiracy!
