Yes,Apple iphone is very costly when compared to Android.
Android can do anything.
But iphone still does not support Bluetooth file transfer.
Well actually, I would prefer iOS but I use Android. Why? Because, the iPhone is expensive (750€ or 1070$) in my country and the companies that sell them want to hook you up with subscriptions of an extra 30€ a month for calling and texting on top of that. Well, as kind of non active cellphone user, I didn't want to pay that so I put my eyes on the Android Market. (From the beginning I disliked Windows Mobile Phones, so that wasn't an option either, the Nokia operating system seemed gibberish and I dislike Samsung and Sony Ericsson).
And my eyes felt on a relatively cheap smartphone, the HTC Wildfire. Although the processor is kind of weak, it does the trick and I like the smartphone a lot. (Just don't think you can play games with it, I tried ) It's perfect for browsing the web, checking your emails, training your chess skills ( ), listening to your music or the radio. The IRC app works great too by the way (AndroIRC) and the Android Market is very handy for finding the right applications and you can find a lot of good free apps.
Another advantage of Android is that applications are written in Java. And let that just be, the language I learned in college. So yeah, probably I'll try to make some apps in the holidays just to learn how it works basically. I'll also be making a private app that connects with my webhosting account on Frihost.
