I'm unbiased in this because I've used both and will most likely continue to use both. I pre-ordered my iPhone for VZW after canceling my ATT account a while ago (got tired of paying two bills). My VZW phone I use mostly for business. But I am a HUGE music lover and having all of my music and my phone without carrying three devices is a plus. I'm going to hold on to my Droid Pro for business use and travel, but instead of having a personal and business phone everyday, I like the iPhone enough to make it my everyday phone for both for now.

There are cultists on both sides. My cousin is an IT guy and he will never, ever give up his Android phone. I like both, but honestly I do not use my Android to its full potential as some other tech savvy people, like my cousin, do. The iPhone pretty much meets my needs. I don't mess around with rooting my phone or using roms, or even that much customization. The Android platform is great for that.

To me, they are both about the same with some pros and cons for both. It all comes down to what meets a person's needs best. I don't think either platform can please everyone 100%. The iPhone is great for music, usability, essentially lag free, pictures, apps, etc. The Droids are good for customizing, tech enthusiasts who want to make the most out of their device, flash, reading and editing documents with office, real multi-tasking, push gmail, removable battery and memory, etc.

I find the Android phones to be almost like mini laptop workhorses. I don't see the iPhones as business friendly but most definitely user friendly.

Like I said, I'm not a fanboy in any direction but I have an iPad and an Apple desktop for work so it's nice to have all my devices sync up with ease. I use my PC based computer for gaming only and my Mac doesn't always play nice with my Droid.
