As much as I love the iPhone (especially Angry Birds, the best value for money game I've ever played) I can't help but think there must be something better out there and probably costing considerably less.

What phones are in direct competition with the Jailbroken iPhone?

I dont play games usually but I must say I did play angry birds when on holiday, Mrs Jaffa had it on her phone and we took turns getting past the levels.

What is better than an iphone...I am sure HTC owners will say that is better but i am really happy with my iphone and dont really care if anything is better.

Angry birds is on the n900 too.

If you like linux, and hacking, the n900 is great. Support is continuing to grow opengl PC ports, emulation, etc.

The problem is you are not asking what is better than an iphone. You are asking what's better than a jailbroken iphone.

The iphone has the mainstream support in it favour.

Hit the nail on the head there mozr, if it was jailbroken I wouldn't have it.

This n900 sounds interesting.

One simply must investigate further.

That N900 is a wet dream!

AFAICS, it's a fully functional mini Linux computer that makes phone calls.

Fook yer iPhone, I can play Angry Birds on the N900.

You got one Stu?

I've just had a brain wave, if Angry Birds is available on the N900, then that means there is a Linux build.....hmm.

Is it available on standard Linux desktops?

lol @ the key found by Aircrack.

Yes.

I love it.

Firefox, gpodder, FTP client, VNC, PC game ports, excellent divx/xvid compatibility. It's my 6th appendage (I have an extra arm).

Wouldn't you like to know?
iPhone 4 will be the dogs nuts apple hardware is better then the rest even if android is the better OS!

Most iPhone apps are available on the android platfrom.

Personally i prefer the iPhone and now the iPhone 4 has really blown away the HTC desire which was the biggest rival to the iPhone.

The advantage HTC have is they release phones continously over the year not once every year. Considering that apple deserve credit.

However the biggest problem is the price with apple.

Your alternatives to an iPhone would be:

HTC desire
N900 (one ugly thing lol)
Xperia X10 (has a great spec and runs android os)
HTC wildifire (a smaller version of the Desire really)
