Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So my dad's been looking at getting an iPhone for me since my current phone's contract is about to end, and he's able to get a good deal through work.
On the other hand, I've been looking at Android phones and the Galaxy Nexus seems pretty appealing.
Problem is, I basically have no idea what I'm doing with current smartphones. I have a Blackberry Curve that was outdated at the time I'd gotten it with no data plan. I've tried dinking around with the iPhones my sister and dad have been using, and they're really pretty rad, but at the same time I'd really like to try out an Android based phone. The most experience I've had with one is just trying out the touch interface on a friend's Sony Xperia phone, though, and honestly I don't have that much more with the iPhones other than helping hook them up on our wifi and punching in some numbers for them into their address book.
Mostly I guess I'm looking for a comparison on the iPhone 4S vs. the Galaxy Nexus. What do they offer that the other doesn't? Obvious things to consider are probably the apps, I guess? But I have almost no frame of reference for this stuff since this'll be basically the first smart phone I get with a data plan.
Knowing a good provider in east end Toronto probably helps too, but ultimately my biggest consideration is to be wary of everyone except for Wind, but then their network barely touches Scarborough and is spotty more or less everywhere.
