Android

My iPhone just died on me. Kind of blessing as my contract with AT&T is up and I have not been happy with the call quality since I switched from Verizon.

Anyway I am curious if the Android will work with the car stereo system or if I will need to get an iPod for the convenience.

Also curious how the Android compares to the iPhone in terms of applications.

I have the Motorola Droid, everything works fantastic! Bluetooth music and bluetooth phone calls. Only thing you cant do is voice dial over bluetooth.

I personally use the USB with the phone, as I feel the music sounds "fuller", mount the SD card when its plugged in, and use the stereo or steering wheel controls to control the music. Plus it comes with a 16gb memory card, expandable to 32gb.

I had the 2g iPhone (had many phone since then) but to compare I really do like the Android OS, it just fits me perfectly. Granted my phone is rooted (think linux).

My Motorola Droid works fine as well.

If you are into the Droid, check out http://www.droidforums.net

If you don't need a physical keyboard, wait for the Nexus One for Verizon, should be out in a couple weeks...

You can find out more about the N1 here http://www.nexusoneforum.net

If you're going back to Verizon then I highly recommend you take a look at the Palm Pre Plus. Fantastic device and my Pre works flawlessly with the car.

Go with the Droid! I just got a Camaro wallpaper mini-app that changes my wallpaper to sweet pics of Camaros through the years.. Some of these car pics I've never even seen before and wish I had a full size of them.

The Nexus One looks like it does everything I want and more. Think I will wait a few weeks and go for that one.

Thanks for all the feedback.

Did the same thing. Iphone died they wanted me to buy a new one so I jumped ship to Verizon and got the Motorola Droid. No problems with Music and BT - everything works great. Personally I would get the Droid and on 4/26 return it for the HTC Incredible coming out.

Not sure when it's supposed to release. But I know I want one when I get back to the states! Looks awesome.

I really hope HTC has gotten their shit together. I had 2 Touch Pros and 2 Imagios crap out on me, all within 4 weeks. Then moved onto the Motorola Droid, and couldn't be happier with it. One month of beautiful calls without walking into the verzion store every other day so far. Droid FTW!!!

I cant stand phones without a keyboard, I got the droid and love it. I'm sure the N1 is probably a slightly better device, but without a keyboard it has absolutely no value to me.

Just remember what google's business model is... making lots of money by knowing as much about you as possible.

Better than Apple's. Making lots of money by selling units that break often enough that you can buy 2 or 3 iPhones a year. And yes I know PLENTY of people in that boat. And no, I have no idea why they continue to buy iPhones each time.

Did a quick search, but couldn't find out how to pair the Droid for music.
I have it setup for phone. (Bluetooth)

It does... You have to go to AUX Input, then hit Menu and on the menu there is a Bluetooth choice. Then it will walk you through it. Make sure you are ready on the droid's bluetooth menu as well.
