I just used this chart in a presentation, and thought it applies here. Android growing big time, others not so much.

That is US data and RIM is probably doing a lil better in Canada but still losing 20% market share in the US in a year is a bad bad sign.

LG Optimus One P500 on Rogers

Rooted & flashed with #void 2.3.4 by Franco & kernel v18

As a stock phone is ok, but once it has a custom ROM installed, it is an awesome phone for the price. Camera is lacking but I don't buy my phones for the camera. I have an iPhone 3GS, Blackberry Curve 8900 and this LG. Out of all three, the LG is by far my favorite phone.

I don't have any of the issues that jcmaz has.

jcmaz: Are you running stock or custom rom? Perhaps you might want to try putting a new rom on it?

Nexus One on Wind. Wicked phone, put CM 7 on it and I've moved it even more since.

I'm using stock rom. The issues mainly happen to my brother's Optimus One, but sometimes to me as well. Can you PM me instructions for rooting and stuff? Thanks!

RIM's outlook isn't as bad as portrayed here in North America. Their sales and user base continues to increase over seas. But, that will plateau soon, if their reputation doesn't improver here. Word gets around :).

I have a Galaxy S, bought outright from Bell. I use it over here in Taiwan without issues, but when in Canada I have a Bell SIM. I bought it early and got very lucky. I avoided the corrupt SD card problems. The GPS though was garbage, but as usual XDA to the rescue. Same goes for all the custom ROM's available for it. If it wasn't for that I would have ditched the phone for something else. I'll be upgrading to the Galaxy S II very soon, as it should be available in Taiwan any day now.

I had an iPhone 3GS before on Rogers. It got stolen and I ended up in a serious battle with Rogers about their guaranteed replacement program I had bought into. Went as far as the Ombudsman, articles by Ellen Roseman, and the BBB. Rogers screwed me royally. Apple came through in the end and sent me a new phone as they agreed Rogers were being huge douches. The whole experience killed my interest in Apple, and I passed the phone off to a family member and switched to Android.

Sorry for the rant! :)

Nexus One running CM nighties on Bell. I love that phone, even though I had to switch out the flex cable and the speaker a few months ago.
If the Nexus 3 looks good, that will be my next.
