I understand it is on Verizon, however, I think Google Voice works the same way. Not sure as I don't use it either.

The OP said it was for AT&T service so I don't know about Skype on there; on Verizon Skype is available for Android.

I just got an HTC Droid Incredible (Verizon wireless) last week and love it. I agree with Rich, with Android phones the skin that each manufacturer puts on gives a different feel to the phone. I played around with a few in the Verizon store before settling on HTC's phone since I preferred their interface over Motorola's.

I love that the battery is upgradeable/replaceable, the memory is microSD and all the apps I've downloaded have been free.

My next phone will be an Android (vs. iphone 4) and I'm leaning towards the Samsung Galaxy S Captivate which is coming to Rogers in September up in Canada.

According to a recent Gartner report, Android is beating Apple with 200,000 + activations every single day and is now the 3rd most popular OS in the world (Symbian is #1 and Blackberry is #2).

Purchased an HTC Legend about a month ago and have since replaced it with an Iphone4. The droid OS is fine, the phone is frustrating. Low signal strength from the bottom antenna and very short battery life (forget about leaving on the GPS or wifi or blutooth), barely get a day from just 3G without using it much.

The iphone4 works better in every way and I know realize why they are the market leader. Their desire to control everything will be their eventual demise.

My work-provided Sprint Hero is working fine for me after several months. DW has the iPhone which is nice, too.

I have not found a single reason to want one over the other; functionality is comparable. The iPhone makes a better mp3 player, but the android has better web integration with the usual google functions and that is all free, unlike the Mac cloud environment.

Both are great.

e86, I think the HTC Legend and Incredible are similar. I haven't had any reception problems but did upgrade the OEM battery to a slightly bigger 1700 mAh which goes through a full day of use with no problem. I do wish HTC would put bigger batteries in their phones though, the OEM 1300 mAh is kinda wimpy for that phone.
