It takes roughly 0.5 seconds to select the option to stop receiving emails from an account on my Droid. It takes slightly longer to put a password on that app to keep anyone from changing any settings. You've also talked about size being a problem for you. My Droid has the same screen size as an iPhone which is easily usable in one hand. Remember not all droids are 4" screens.

I've posed this question twice now with no response, but what can the iPhone do my cheap Droid can't?

Obviously you can't simply log off emails without having to jump through hoops which is pretty much the case with every "better" feature with droid. FYI I told him he could lock it but he wanted to sign completely out. Not like it was a far fetched request but there was no option to do it. Screen size is not a big deal. I had initially wanted the new iPhone to have it but was gonna get it regardless. After holding a bigger phone I was somewhat relieved it stayed the same. As far as what you can do with your droid it's pretty much everything I can do with mine minus Siri & signing out of emails. iPhone just does it better.

I think it'll be out by then. Latest is pointing to a possible Dec 15th date from a Costco flyer.

I'm jealous. An incredible piece of hardware for sure. Verizon is trying to bastardize it by removing Google Wallet but it's still a real beaut. I'm thinking other carriers wont remove gwallet when they get it next year.

Not having emails sent to the phone is logging out as far as I'm concerned and is done by clicking my account name choosing settings and unsyncing. Easy enough. And Sirius is only slightly more advanced than vlingo on my phone. Sirius still seems to miss a lot of statements when I've seen it used

Oh yea, and my phone was free.

I'm sure it was free most are. Logging off emails should mean you have to log back in to view or send. Regardless not an issue I have. Siri not sirius is more than slightly advanced than anything droid offers voice control wise don't kid yourself.

Have you tried out the Droid Razr? And if so, what were your thoughts? I'm waiting for the Nexus to come out to compare the two

I've been playing with my new Nexus for about an hour, and absolutely love it so far. I had stayed away from Android because I didn't feel it was polished enough to make me leave the iPhone, but ICS is definitely ready for prime time. Everything flows and integrates really well. I'm sure I'll have some complaints after using it for a while like I did with the iPhone, but I feel really good about the phone now.
