Ellen Kim, MD
I'm a Mac user. My husband uses a PC.
For many years, I was also a loyal Palm OS user. I had a Sony Clie. Then, I became a loyal Windows Mobile user. I had a Compaq iPad. I also had a Palm Treo running Windows Mobile. I had a Samsung smartphone running Windows Mobile.
About 6 months ago, I switched to a Droid Incredible because my entire family is on the Verizon Wireless network. If the Apple iPhone was available 6 months ago, I would have gotten that one. Now, I've gotten very comfortable with the Google Android OS and I'm not eligible for a smartphone upgrade for another 2 years.
In 2 years, will I want an iPhone or will I be loyal to Android? I suppose we'll have to wait and see. For now, I don't feel too compelled to get an iPhone because I can do everything I need to do on my Droid. Plus, I can do even more because certain Google services are built right into the device.
