With this, you can use your iphone as a usb device

Very nice program!
but you still need a computer to transfer data
I have been using the HTC Desire, which is an Android phone just like the Galaxy S. It is a really good phone that can compete against the iPhone. But I don't think that the battery life is that good, specially that all Android apps never close, any Application that you have opened will always be working in the background (hidden), and that eats the battery ALOT
you can use a program to "kill" the background applications, and that works perfectly, but don't forget that you have to kill the program that kills the other programs as well
Android is a great OS but I think it still needs a few more adjustments in order to become better than the iPhone, and until now all Android phones have good touch screens but not better than the iPhone..

Why dont you buy Ipod. I guess you can play the same game which you wish to play on iPhone4.
Install a Ps3 or xbox in your car =P

^You don't need an iTunes to transfer data though.

Battery life is an issue but its similar to the iPhone 4s'.

an Ipod is a good option! specially the new Ipod 4G (it has a camera) and you can jailbreak it and install all the games you want.
I've seen the N8 and I went throught it very quickly, I noticed that it has the same interface as the Nokia 5800 or N97. Ofcourse the OS is still symbian, but the N8 has the newer version of it.
BTW here's a video that compares the N8 and the iPhone 4 in gaming

and here you can find the specs of the N8 VS the specs of the iPhone 4

(THE BATTERY OF THE N8 IS NOT BAD,it's abit less powerful than the E72. but the iPhone has a more powerful battery than the N8 and almost the same as the E72, but don't forget that the iPhone consumes more energy than the N8)

Get the iPhone, more suited to your use. GPS works on iPhone 4 but it will use data to load the maps unlike the E72.

I've had dynolicious for an year now but never got the chance to go on a stretch and try it out because you need a sturdy windshield phone mount for it to work and I always forget to bring along my mount whenever I'm on a stretch

The N8's coolest feature is the "FM Transmitter". Tune a empty radio station on your phone and car HU and play your music. It's the 1st time any phone has come out with a technology like that. In other cases you have to buy a separate unit for the FM transmitter which really sucks...

AccordTuner, for your requirements the iPhone4 is what you need. I seriously get jealous when my friends are sitting in a group playing fifa with each other. I am contemplating buying a iPhone4 for the apps and games, but can't let go off my BB...EVER!! ...

As for andriod and the likes...there alright, still need alot of time for the apps to come out properly in them. But these days you can find your favorite apps on all flavors of phones...

Actually coming to think of it, why don't you just get a bloody ipad and keep your E72?
Im so JDM my blood type is "Type-R"..

LOL. First time?
Nokia has been putting FM transmitters in phones since the last century.
