An Android or iPhone, which would you pick?

Right after a number of months of rumors, the Verizon iPhone was finally announced Tuesday.

Would you get it?
I'm a Verizon consumer with a two-year-old BlackBerry that just rejected the latest Facebook upgrade due to the fact my telephone is antiquated by intelligent phone requirements.

My upgrade is next month, prime time for the iPhone on Verizon's network. But, till the announcement, I was set on an Android phone. Acquiring one more BlackBerry wasn't some thing I ever deemed since it is been left in the dust by developers.

I never buy a new telephone each year, so I contemplate this a severe investment. Here's what I've regarded as with receiving an Android device:

Android use has been increasing.

TechCrunch reported recent ad impressions from Millenial Media, a network that reaches 81 percent of the U.S. mobile Net. Millenial measured Android operating systems at 46 percent to Apple's iOS of 32 percent.

Millenial is the third-biggest mobile ad network, behind Google AdMob (Google runs the Android industry) and Apple iAd. These are important numbers.

Even so, several of the bells and whistles I looked at on Android phones, such as turning my phone into mobile WiFi for my laptop, is on Verizon's iPhone.

My unanswerable question is: would the numbers from Millenial be different if Verizon had carried the iPhone at the end of 2010?

Android becoming an open marketplace compared to Apple's closed a single is a strong argument in Android's favor, but why are some apps coming to iPhone initial?

Skype came to iPhone ahead of Android despite the popularity of Apple's FaceTime, and the well-known photo editing application Instagram gathered fame on the iPhone prior to announcing it would create for Android. Some would argue Vignette for Android is just as excellent, nonetheless.

Some apps I am interested in are developed because the developer has the iPhone (such as the Nieman Journalism Lab).

The iPhone has outstanding branding and a loyal buyer base. I've never owned an Apple item besides an iPod, so I am not in that demographic.

For me, it boils down to this: The apps I want are mainstream sufficient to be supplied or are accessible only for iPhone. If the information program (not but announced as of Thursday) is comparable, I'll get the iPhone. But if the information is also pricey, I'll be pleased with an Android.
