Even when Google officially announces and releases a new version of its mobile operating system, you don't get to enjoy that new Android OS right away; you have to wait for the carrier and manufacturer to push it to you (unless you like unofficial ROMs). So, who reigns supreme in this regard?

iPhone-hotspot

Aside from the obvious swap to a CDMA cellular radio, one of the other major differences between the Verizon iPhone and AT&T iPhone is the inclusion of the personal hotspot functionality.

People said they were losing bars and dropping calls when they held the smartphone a certain way. Not so, apparently, with Verizon's version.

A rose by any other name... though HTC probably doesn't want you referring to this device as a rose. Over the course of its development life this smartphone has been called the HTC Incredible HD and the HTC Mecha.

droidx-snowman

Coke might have its polar bears, but Verizon has a big scary robot disguised as a kindly snowman. And it's awesome. I really like the Droid commercials from Verizon, mostly because they remind me of things like Terminator, and this one adds a little festive flair to it. Bow down to your snowbot overlords.
