  iPhone 4

Cold, hard fact: there are likely going to be more than a few people switching from a webOS phone to the forthcoming iPhone 4 (heck, some lucky people are making that switch already). We previously asked EVO 4G switchers to fess up, so it's only fair we do the same for Apple switchers.

If you are switching, our pals at have ruthlessly kindly put together a guide for Pre to iPhone switchers which, in addition to being helpful, also lays out some of the differences between the platforms. TiPb wasn't afraid to call out where the iPhone doesn't stack up well against webOS - namely: no over-the-air updates, no easy homebrew or patching, no decent notification system, no physical keyboard. We suspect those features and more will be enough to keep many Pre faithful on webOS, to say nothing of carrier decisions.

So if you're staying, tell us why. If you're going, godspeed and we still love you - but let us know what's sending you to iPhone 4 territory here as you join the TiPb Nation.
