Yeah true, but it's still literally playing the same waiting game.
Every phone will have their design over others. I hear you on the next standard which is dual core.
But Id still recommend just getting something solid that's connected directly to google.
Look at evos, galaxy s's etc etc. Update waiting is a b.tch. But if your going to something then get what you'll like personally. The time is now. Then if you must and can afford it, buy something else
Like I said, something will trump each other in some regard. The leap will be bigger in 2011. But it still sucks because summer will be here in no time, and see something pop out and you'll want THAT one.
So I recommend a future proof, first in line to get the latest android OS updates google phone.
Nexus S, then G2. Of course older nexus one will get it before all others too.
iPhone 4 will last 2 years nicely no problem whatsoever which is nice. Android is deadly playing the waiting game. So straight google is the way to go.
People with their nexus ones still have em and love em. First in line to get the latest android OS updates has a big thing to do with that. Reassurance, receiving updates before others etc.
