    I've been eligible for an upgrade for a while now, but I'm definitely holding off until this summer for the fourth generation iPhone. If Apple doesn't deliver something awesome I'm considering a jump to an Android device.

    I just made the jump to Android (Nexus One) it's really nice, Capacitive touch screen like the iPhone.

    Yea, I've been using various Android phones and I really like the OS and hardware. While I like my iPhone, I have some qualms with it (mainly speed, but I don't want to waste an upgrade on the 3GS), but I'm going to give Apple a chance to win my business one more time.

    my general rule is to always skip 1 generation (maybe 2 generations) of device models. If you have a 3Gs now, you should wait for the 5th generation iphone, unless the 4th generation one REALLY has WAAAYYYYY much more improvement than what you have.

    i have a regular 3g, if the 4th gen turn out to be very superior to my 3rd gen then i might get one several months afterwards once real world usage review and test results come in.

    I don't know guys, I can't see Apple doing a major overhaul to the iPhone.
    Hopefully I'm wrong but so far hardware wise there haven't been too many improvement compared to other phones.

    Don't go Android.

    My husband has a Motorola Droid and he thinks its great, but... there are just so many little things IMO. Scrolling isn't very smooth from what I've found, and that sluggishness extends to other parts of the system, too.

    It's also still really Linuxey. I just made that up... it essentially means... well, it still feels like running Linux on a little tiny screen.

    Oh, and it's made by Google. Google = Internet Satan.

    Jamie, version 2.1 has included a lot of changes that covers those problems. Multitouch has been enabled, there have been small performance improvements, and more.

    As for "feeling Linuxey" that's just nonsense. So you have a few extra options compared to the iPhone, but it's not like you're sitting there typing commands into a console or anything.

    Definitely wait for this summer, especially if you can go month-to-month until then. Hopefully the huge jump in other smartphone like android combined with the slowed growth of iPhone sales will result in Apple making some big changes.

    Ditto on the possible switch. I love the iPhone and have purchased some apps, but not enough to make me stay with it if a competing product looks better. Besides, I can use those purchases on my soon-to-be delivered iPad.

    To be honest, in light of the new devices out there the iPhone basic interface is looking pretty dated. The iPhone hasn't been out too long, but in terms of handsets it feels like a lot longer. I think Apple needs to at least refresh the look of the homescreen and incorporate some widgets that periodically update when other apps aren't being used. Also, I have to agree that some multi-tasking and display customization would be nice. Also, AMOLED screen and a good power boost would keep me with Apple another couple of years.

    Let's hope that, despite the Nexus One's lackluster sales, Apple is feeling the pinch of competition enough to make some significant improvements over the typical marginal changes that are just enough to keep sales going.

    fleurya, you just completely erased any hesitance I may have had with switching to Android. I was a little worried about not having access to Apple apps anymore, but then you reminded me that I'll still have access to them with my iPad! Now I have absolutely no qualms jumping ship to Android if Apple fails to deliver this summer.

    No no... I don't mind a terminal. That's actually kinda nice :p

    It's not in the system, but in the apps... a lot of rough edges and things. The same kinds of rough edges I see in desktop Linux apps. Like you say, quite a bit may be fixed in 2.1. I'll hunt up some screenshots and a review around the webs and see!

    I am telling myself to hold on to my 3GS until Apple stops releasing software updates for it. But if I know myself, this summer I just might have the fourth gen iPhone in my hands and an angry spouse ....

    If they come out, of course.
