iPhone vs. Droid - The King is Dead, Long live the King

No longer can we recommend one handset over the other simply by its feature set

The other day I said Apple had 18 months. I was wrong. I should have said 18 days. They had the lead and have now lost it (not staying in the lead is as good as losing it).

The real killer here is not the app store - it's the "Open" part. Every time Apple gets first mover advantage they change the way you think and then the competitors change the way you spend your money.

Now it all boils down to personal preferences and good old fashioned $$$. And America pretty much votes with the checkbook.

What comes next?

Windows Mobile 7 of course and the new HTC phones.
