whats the app store that you use for the moment to download apps? like the iphone uses itunes.. whats the version for the moment? if that makes sense.
how many pages of texts messages can you send at once? or character limits?
I'm going to venture a guess that you don't have an android phone yet... still shopping around?
As for the app store, android has it's own apps store, run by google. However, there are also other markets (slideMe, appBrain, etc...), so you have a lot of options for applications. Although the iPhone has more apps in pure number, android is catching up quickly. In the last two months, android has gone from 27,000 applications to over 34,000. Itunes, on the other hand, recently lost 5000 applications. So it won't be long until android catches up..
Text messages.. the default texting program isn't all that great. However, with chompSMS you can send as large of a text as you want. (well... it may have a limit, but i've sent 10 page messages (1600 characters) without problem). handCent also works but idk.
