Before getting caught up in the stampede now that Verizon is officially getting the iPhone 4, it'll do to remember that America's largest cell phone carrier earned its title for a reason. No doubt, Verizon customers have demanded the iPhone for years, but let's not forget that the iPhone 4 won't have everything (like 4G speeds) and that Big Red is deepening its bench of excellent smartphones, most of them based on Flash-friendly Android. Let's check out the competition.
Verizon's future Android 2.2 lineup also includes LG's 4G Revolution, which has a 4.3-inch touch screen, front-facing camera, and the capability to have up to eight Wi-Fi devices on its mobile hot spot.
If you simply can't wait, the Motorola Droid X is a strong Android specimen. It has a 4.3-inch touch screen, great multimedia features like an 8-megapixel camera with HD video capture, HDMI output, and DLNA support. It can also become a mobile hot spot.
