      Can't say I'm surprised by that considering most Android phones are free with low ppm contracts

      Yes thats true, although playing devils advocate here, apple stuff is just expensive all over, ipods, mac's iwotsits all come with a premium pricetag. I found this quite amusing VID the other day. Although being an android lover I expect I would, if theres one fault the android has is the OS's reliance on internal system memory which limits the amount of apps you can install on it depending on what model you go for.
