I've been researching both, hopefully, something will come along that will be a tie-breaker!lol I'm totally new to Android I hope that whatever Android smartphone I get I want get bored with it. I currently own the LG Spyder II, I'm ready for something more exciting. I do hope that the new android I choose have the text-to-speech feature i.e. reading names and numbers aloud. My LG has spoiled me with that feature! It comes handy when I'm driving so I truly hope either phones has that.
    im the same way rob im only concern is future updates after the 2.2 but in all honestly once i can use flash in its entirety im all set. both phones will do the the same things almost the desire will have the ui which will make it smoother and easier to organize but looking head to head its only a couple of seconds faster than the milestone surfing the web. so im back and forth about it myself. also even though the milestone can be overclocked it can be used with the stock rom and still be pretty fast just not as fast as the desire

    Wow ! What a lot of great info in the stack for this noob ! Anxiously awaiting the Desire. A little apprehensive about not having a physical keyboard and will be my first touchscreen. Are the onscreen keyboards a hassle to use ?

    Well if this is your first touchxcreen then it will take some getting used. For me i liked them even better that physical buttons. My brother on the other hand still prefers physical buttons but doesnt mind the touchscreen so he is set on the milestone for best of both worlds.

    seriouly, the desire is a better phone. but it might not be the better phone for me. with the new driods moto is putting out with all of them being unclocked tells me the milestone should be able to handle updates beyond the 2.2 but there is nothing official yet

    I'm gonna throw in another plug for Swype with the touchscreen keyboard... in only a few days, it's made my text entry probably twice as fast on the Hero.

    Yeah, garb, I'm way leaning towards getting the Desire when it comes out... if I thought the Galaxy was going to be coming, I might wait on that, but I doubt it would come before some time next year...

    Thanks, guys. I can't wait. After two BB's, I'm sick of battery pulls and the white screen o'death. Keeping my fingers crossed that same problem doesn't occur with the Desire.

    Yes it really does help alot, although it takes some getting used to. once you do though it is really easy, and alot if fun.
    I'm still going with the milestone at this point though. I like the keyboard being there even if I don't, use it. Both are great phones though

    You guys have you all checked out the Samsung Acclaim? It looks pretty cool for a mid-tier level phone. U.S. Cellular is getting it so u know what that means. Usually whatever U.S. Cellular or Sprint gets 9 times outta 10 we'll get hands on it too. Perfect example, U.S. Cellular claimed they would get the HTC Desire first, now look who's jumping on the Desire Bandwagon CSouth! This phone(Samsung Acclaim) would be a great starter Android Samsung phone for CSouth. Since CellSouth is on a roll with these higher end phones, I wonder will we have the rights to the new Motorolas or does Verizon still have those 6 month exclusive rights? Oh, I can't wait to see what's coming soon when the HTC Desire appears on Cellular South's website.

    Just so you know rod, CS actually got the desire before us cellular. Its been rumored for CS since feb which was way before us cellular. A CS employee told me in feb. that it would be coming out late july or early august. He told me this and about the milestone coming out in june or july. Although since pm is limited on what all he can say im guessing this CS employee was not supposed to say anything. PM am I right?
