That’s what Billshrink says at least. It’s a generalized comparison assuming that everyone is going to grab unlimited data and voice. This plays into Sprint’s hand no matter what device it is since Sprint’s unlimited voice/date package is unparalleled at this time. So it doesn’t matter what phone you put up against it using those numbers. Of course, if you throw out the unlimited voice, that number shrinks quite a bit, but Sprint still wins out in this scenario too.

In this article, “Total Cost of Ownership: Motorola Droid vs iPhone 3GS vs Palm Pre vs MyTouch 3G” takes a look at the hottest smartphones on these networks, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon.

After months and months of blogger buzz and a heavy veil of secrecy, the new Motorola Droid by Verizon Wireless is set to launch within days, just in time for the holiday season.

The Droid enters into a smartphone marketplace dominated by the Palm Pre with Sprint and the ever-popular iPhone 3GS with AT&T. But how are consumers supposed to compare the offerings?

    I definitely do not need unlimited voice. And I think that Sprint's past customer service issues continue to come back to bite them – I think that they lost customers who will never go back.

    From what I see, T-Mobile and the MyTouch matched Sprint's price. In fact, if you bought an unlocked version, they beat Sprint by $151.

    Other than less storage and no physical keyboard, the MyTouch beat the Pre in specs and has a much larger app store.

    Actually, it should be cheaper on T-Mobile's now that they have the Even More Plus plans
