Default iPhone 4, 3gs, or droid phone?

I'm thinking of picking up a pair of smartphones for the lady and myself.

I personally don't like Apple products for various reasons, but am not blind to the fact that the iPhone 4 is already being considered one of the best smartphones on the market...

My GF is already set on an iPhone which is fine. I'm just wondering if I should opt for something else.

Any recommendations, or advice?

My options are the following:

A) iPhone 3gs for $99 on a three year contract
B) a Droid phone on a three year contract
C) wait a few months - damn Canada - and get an iPhone 4

Are there any droid phones I should avoid?

thanks in advance!

If you are too stupid to use a search button, you're too stupid for a smartphone.

Stick with whatever dumb phone your provider will give you for free.

Wait 30 days to see if any new issues crop up w/ the iPhone 4. By that time, Droid X will be released (July 15) and you can compare them.

Three year contract? Does it include your anal virginity as well?

I"ll be nice
what are you planning on doing with these phones? Do you like to tinker and "modify" stuff?

ALso, do you guys even have sprint up there?
I honestly think that you can't go wrong with any modern phone, they all do similar/awesome jobs at what they are doing...so no matter what you choose, it will be a massive upgrade from whatever you are using.

When you say Droid phone are you talking specifically about the 4 phones that use that in their name on Verizon, or all phones with the Android operating system? If it's the latter, that depends on what you Canadians have available. If it were my choice, get the Nexus 1.

If you think living in an HOA neighborhood is a good idea, go with Apple.

Otherwise, Android.
