Ok, going with the good advice of Richard, I resolved my dilemma in favor of an iPhone.
If I had written this post in the first couple hours of using it, I might have been able to come up with a rant on the various things that bugged me, didn't work quite right, or were just a nuisance. However, I can't bring myself to do that right now - I just love this darn thing too much!!
Sure, it's got warts aplenty, but I couldn't care less as I'm checking traffic, scanning reviews at the store, texting friends, responding to email, confirming validation emails on-the-fly, and listening to tunes. I'm sure I'll get past the initial honeymoon phase eventually, but right now, I'm going to sit back with my rose-colored shades and enjoy.
