    I'm an Android fan myself :).
    Droid RAZR MAXX

    I'll probably get the iPad mini though... if it has an IR (infrared) blaster.

    Well... one of each. One iPad mini. One Xoom 7 inch tablet.

    If you do get the iPhone 5, you may want to pick this up too ...

    AppleTV

    AirPlay is awesome. You'll be able to stream content from your phone to your HDMI out TV.

    Mirroring is awesome too. You can display your phone on the TV.

    Not only that, you can setup an iTunes server and stream content from your server to either your phone or to AppleTV.

    Shikamaru....
    I would love to get that Apple i5.
    But I put out for the 2011 MacBook last year. Got the iPod touch.
    Got the Android phone...but

    I love all Apple / "digital crack" products. Got people lining up and fiendin.'

    However, Im experiencing techo-overload. Im charging 3 devices every night. Strapping on devices every morning.

    Its gotta stop somewhere.

    Apple is okay to me.

    Android is awesome :).

    I like what's happening. Everything is beginning to blur into each other. My entertainment centers are computers. My servers are content streaming devices. My phone is a computer device. My tabbies are remote controls. My speakers can interface with any computer device ...

    AWESOME!!

    Keep the good times rolling ... SmartTVs, touch-screen workstations, wearable computers ... more, more, more ...

    About the only device I don't have is the Mac-mini. I wouldn't mind getting my hands on one of those.

    It didn't really wow me, but I think it's a solid device for people who are interest or already invested in the Apple ecosystem.

    What's really interesting is what competition is doing to Apple, in an area it wanted to dominate, is doing to the company. Shady legal practices aside, a few years back Apple was essentially saying that it would not make a smaller tablet than the iPad. The N7 changed their mind. The price of the gNex also had an interesting effect on the price of the iPhone 5.

    No thanks.
    I prefer a phone that I can customize, is fashionable, and is not 2 generations behind my year old Android.

    BTW, does anyone know of any black tech sites, especially ones for Android phones?
