Comparison of Motorola Droid X vs iPhone 4

If Apple do not resolve these iPhone 4 problems, unsure likely customers may move over to Motorola’s new Droid X as their communication device of option. There are some similarities and differences to think. This includes the operating system iOS 4.0 from Apple and the alternating Android 2.1, complete with Moto blur from Motorola. Apple’s iOS4 is a proprietary operating system, and only allows software that is first accepted by Apple, and made available from Apple’s online store. In the meantime, however, Android is an open source platform, and allows developers to freely develop new software and plug-ins for the operating system.
The memory from the iPhone is 512MB in the Droid X. The iPhone 4 weights 4.8 ounces, while the Droid X is 5.4 ounces.The iPhone keyboard is onscreen. The Droid X also utilize an onscreen keyboard, but also takes gain of SWYPE technology. Mostly, SWYPE allow users to drag their finger across the screen, touching all of the letters that fit in in a particular word, without lifting their finger. This device then automatically detects the word that the user was “swyping.”
On-board storage has iPhone as an easy winner with a choice of either 16GB or 32GB, even as its rival only offers one option of 8GB. The Droid X, though, comes with a 16GB MicroSD card built-in, bumping its default storage capacity to 24GB. Storage hungry users can also upgrade the microSD card, making the DroidX capable of conduct more overall data storage than the iPhone4.
Screen size gives the iPhone 3.5 inches, and 4.3 inches from the Droid, clearly making the Droid X a better choice for users that need lots of screen real estate. The Screen resolution, however, is far better from the iPhone 4 with 640 x 960 pixels, compared to 480 x 854 pixels. Compare to cameras, the iPhone 4 offers a 5MP camera with LED flash, at the same time Droid X offers an 8MP camera with a dual LED flash.

How To utilize Google Voice On iPhone 4

Google opened up Google Voice to every person nowadays. While there is still no dedicated application for the iPhone, don't let that stop you. Here's how to use Google Voice with the iPhone 4 as follows:
First remember the big message between Apple, AT&T and Google over the Google Voice iPhone app through the summer of 2009? The FCC doesn’t make any real decisions between Apple, AT&T and Google, but that doesn't mean Google has been sitting around waiting for the FCC to make up its mind. In starting of this year January, Google launched a new version of the Google Voice application that Apple doesn’t able to approve (or disapprove). Why? Because it is used from the iPhone's browser. Since it workings in Safari, which means it will work from the iPhone 4 too.

The HTML5-powered Web app will let iPhone users access Google Voice without the need for a third-party application. The new Web application will work on iPhones using OS 3.0 and up. In this version of Google Voice will also work with Palm's web OS devices. The Google Voice disaster extended last year when Apple first accepted a Google Voice application from Google and then later pulled it. Many of they believed that it was pulled from the iPhone Apps Store at the request of AT&T. Google Voice lets users make cheaper long-distance calls and forward calls to several other numbers. The U.S. Federal Communications Commission opened an inquiry of sorts and asked all the companies involved for an explanation of why the application was removed. The results of that investigation have still not yet been exposed, 10 months later.
If you Want to use Google Voice with your iPhone 3G, 3GS or your iPhone 4? Visit in your mobile browser.The Web-based app certainly doesn't work as well as the more fully-featured Google Voice for Android application, but it gets the fundamentals done in a pinch. Google says, "For fast access to the most significant features like 'Dialer', 'Compose SMS', 'Inbox' or 'Contacts,' you can easily add shortcuts to your iPhone home screen or Palm Launcher. So cheap calls and messaging will be just a one touch away. "
