Re: getting tp2 today...thinking about iphone..whos have both?

I'm veturing to guess that you haven't really tinkered/modded your TouchPro since you're "new" (according to your post count) to the forum.

if you haven't...then I suggest you do MORE reading here on the Touch Pro to see and learn of the myriad of possibilities concerning your current phone. Then imagine that and MORE concerning the Touch Pro 2.

True you can unlock the iPhone and it has all those apps...but really...do you really want to get locked into that closed environment?

I have an iPod Touch (jailbroken) but have yet to be able to have the kind of freedom I have on my Touch Pro 2 when we talk about customizing.

besides, it'll be down to personal preference....

Re: getting tp2 today...thinking about iphone..whos have both?

I don't think it is wise posting about comparing a TP2 and Iphone in this forum... things can get pretty nasty (towards you and iphone) I once had an iphone and ipod touch first gen, it was neat and all that but not being able to have a spare battery killed it. I've become a Windows mobile geek indeed. I don't see myself getting an iphone anytime soon unless WM dies....

Re: getting tp2 today...thinking about iphone..whos have both?

I had a 3Gs and brought it back to the store, trading for a TP2. The iPhone was fun to play with, but at the end of the day ATT locks down what you can do on the network (when you have coverage) and Apple locks down what you can do with the device. For a long time I maintained that the iPhone was far and away the best piece of hardware out there but it's crippled by the restrictions that the carrier and manufacturer put on it (also of note, you can only associate it with an iTunes library on one PC, which was part of the killer for me).

That being said, my wife just got a Droid, and that thng is NICE. Firsthand use of the 3Gs, TP2, and Droid, and I'd say Droid wins, but that's personal preference. The TP2 is really missing a capacitive touchscreen- the interface always feels sluggish and clumsy to me.

Re: getting tp2 today...thinking about iphone..whos have both?

i have both. personally...the iphone gets really, really...boring! and apple has a fit about every little jailbreak/unlock and hates on you for downloading cracked apps. i neglect my iphone now that i have a touch pro 2.

I pretty much cosign this.. handled all 3 and to me the droid was the best, followed by tp2 then iphone.
