Buy This Now On Amazon

Today belongs to the HTC Evo, but next week is for the iPhone 4G. Thanks to a truly hilarious number of leaks, we already know pretty much everything this new smartphone has to offer. When Steve takes the stage on Monday, he'll undoubtedly have a ton of cool new services and UI enhancements and apps to show us, but very little mystery still surrounds the new iPhone's hardware.

A lot of you are asking yourselves the same question right now; should I buy an iPhone 4G, or is it time to move past Apple?

The answer to this question will vary from person-to-person, but you may want to have a look at this Telegraph article. It gives ten reasons to not buy an iPhone 4G. While the list is somewhat UK-specific (tarriffs and whatnot) it makes some very good points.

Multitasking and flash are going to be the big deciders for most people. Even with the new update, the iPhone will not be able to multitask in the same way or to the same extent as an Android smartphone. With a Nexus One or an HTC Evo (or any other 1 GHz Android phone) you can have a half-dozen browsers, music playing and four or five apps open at once without catastrophic lag.

In fairness; we are talking about Apple here. It is entirely possible that they have something secret, mind-blowing and utterly unprecedented waiting in the wings. If you're on the fence over an Evo or Incredible or an iPhone 4G, you owe it to yourself to wait until Monday to make a decision.
