My quick phone history
1. Samsung sph i330 (palm 3.0 or .5 don't remember)
2. ppc 6700
3. HTC touch pro 2 (current Phone)
All of these phones have been great, and as you can see once I find something I like I stick with it.
Okay Debbie, did you switch? What do you think of android?
Yes, I'm using a HTC Desire Z now. So far, I love it! I've learned where to find things and how to get most of what I need done with the stock ROM, however, I'm down-right CHICKEN
to attempt to root, S-Off, flash custom ROMs, etc., like I was with Windows Mobile. I just don't feel confident enough to risk bricking my device with a stupid mistake.
Android is a whole different wild
animal to me and I just can seem to grasp the new terminology to my satisfaction yet. I'm no techie by any stretch, just a user who began my PDA life with WM and watched it evolve (HTC Wallaby, HTC Blue Angel, HTC Kaiser, & HTC Rhodium -- now an HTC Vision... HTC obsessed perhaps? LOL!). I was very comfortable with the WM OS and knew my way around flashing, tweeks, registry edits, etc. I've got absolutely no clue where to begin with my Vision! I feel like I'm trying to learn Chinese by myself, for Pete's sake... The more I read on my own, the more confused I've become.
On a positive note, I'm not completely intimidated by Android, as haven't gone back to my Rhodium yet, but I won't be truly "one" with my new Android device until I understand what the heck people are talking about. LOL! The oddest things that I find that I miss from my Rhodium is the ability to use my fingernails to click on small links (can't do that with this capacitive screen), the tilt screen (damn, that thing was handy!), and the transition from directional keys on a hard keyboard to having to use a track pad (it never seems to go where I need it to quickly, like just moving cursor keys did). But those are more device hardware criticisms having nothing to do with the OS.
Not a very technical analysis of the platform by any means, but I hope that I've helped alleviate some of your hesitation in making a decision that's best for you.

... Is dipping my toes into the Android waters w/ the help of an HTC Desire Z A7275 NAM (Bell Canada branded)... Please be gentle!
