Default I'm going to buy a smart phone

My new gig is going to buy me the smart phone of my choice. I have to be with either AT&T or Verizon, but that's really it...I pick out the phone, they pay for it, and they pick up the monthly tab. I have to pay for apps but that's it.

OK, so knowing that the sky's the limit, what should I get?

Thunderbolt on Verizon or the LTE Atrix on AT&T (not yet released)

iPhone if eh, I'm beyond iOS at this point. it needs a bigger revamp than iOS5 is giving it.

I'm kinda anti-Apple, so I'm probably going to skip out on the iPhone. I was leaning towards the Thunderbolt.

Thunderbolt is the way to go right now, but if you wait even a month who knows. The Charge is getting good reviews as well, but that design is wonky to me.

If the choice is between AT&T or Verizon, you have no reason to not get the iPhone, anti-Apple or not. I have mine on AT&T, which has greatly improved their service since the first generation, and I absolutely love it.

iPhone is great if you're not a technophile. If you're the least bit technically savvy then there's little reason to get one.

My phone is awesome and you all can form a reacharound train until the sun explodes.

Love my Charge now that it has a Netflix app that allows you to actually watch your movies.

I've got the HTC Evo, which is pretty much the sprint version of the Thunderbolt, and I love it. Best phone I've had in 10 years of having cell phones.

Oh, I admit I'm not tech savvy, but my iPhone is awesome!

Plus, I have a pink rhinestone cover for mine, so if your new job will spring for that, Matt, go for it!

Look, one thing that Matt and I have in common is a well-versed knowledge of every line from "Legally Blonde". If there's anyone I'd steer towards a pink rhinestone phone cover, it's him!

Finally decided to give my Samsung Focus another run after numerous issues with my Atrix. Absolutely abysmal call quality, nobody ever understood me and it made making any kind of important calls impossible. Constant app crashing. Constant slow down even though its dual core and should be fast as hell. Then the terrible news about Android phones getting that fucking Carrier IQ spyware implanted on the carrier level. Finally the shit battery conked out yesterday in the afternoon when we had a ton of shit going on and Brittany needed to be able to get hold of me.

So I updated to WP7.5 and only have one real problem right now with Windows Phone. My Gmail account is oddly synced. I have one email in my inbox and it shows like 47 "conversations" on my phone inline. No indication of which email is the one actually in my box. Hoping when I archive it it will change that on future back and forth.

Otherwise, don't see how I go back to Android. This update to Windows Phone is really nice, and I'm not missing much except some games that I don't really ever use anyway. I found two solid Twitter apps (Birdsong and Rowi) that make up for lack of Tweetdeck. And it has absolutely the best touch keyboard of any smartphone or typing app.

With the Samsung Focus S out, I really think anyone looking at a new phone should look at Windows Phone before Android. All the tech sites have been right when saying they think WP is a better OS with the 7.5 update.
