What Android phone should I get?

As opposed to the iPhone 4 which you can get it in any color as long as its black - Android has real choice.

Android allows you to choose the mobile provider that is best for you combined with the phone that fits your personal needs.

Its important to select a high end Android phone, especially if graduating directly from an iPhone, as I provide my recommendations below.

AT&T - Motorola Atrix 4G

T-Mobile - Samsung Nexus S

Sprint - Samsung Epic 4G or HTC Evo 4G

Verizon - Droid Bionic or HTC Thunderbolt

What Android Applications should I download?

Android has a free market approach instead of tying you down to an App Store or its Android Market you are free to get applications from alternative sources.

These other sources include GetJar & SlideMe for example, but the applications I recommend everyone should get include:

Angry Birds

Great time waster game thats near obligatory on smartphones


File Management & Task Killing ***Don't auto kill applications as its not needed on Android

Barcode Scanner

Scanning barcodes & QR codes


Exchanging contact information even with those still stuck on an iPhone


Stored music and transferring songs from iTunes


Syncing files from other computers you use


Providing Internet via USB to your other devices for free ***a hedge if your mobile provider disables ability in Android 2.2 Froyo


For well ... Facebook

Instant Messaging for AIM, Yahoo, MSN, Google Talk, ICQ, Jabber, Facebook & MySpace
