PCWorld ran a chart comparison in the cost during a two year contract of the 8 top selling smartphones in the market, there isn't a big difference in the total cost of ownership (device, service contract, and so on) over two years--they all come in at around $3,800.
The winners are: the Palm Pre from Sprint and HTC G1 on T-Mobile's network, not really top sellers but good numbers ha?
I still think it's rather expensive when you factor in all the extras per month. $30 for data, $20 for messages. That's an extra $50 a month. I am T-mobile, mainly because of their prices. Also, didn't they do one of these comparisons last year?
I'm just glad my company pays for my BB service. That is an insane amount. My wife has a pearl on vzw so I imagine our cost for that is outrageous too. Glad I don't have to pay for both. I would go broke..:crazy:
