The Growing Geek iPhone Backlash

Is there really a growing "geek backlash" against the iPhone? This lady seems to think so. How about you guys? Anyone switched away from their iPhone?

Last year, almost every computer scientist in my group at Princeton had an iPhone. This year, two of my colleagues have bought Android phones, and I'm leaning toward getting one myself when my iPhone contract runs out next month. Nick focuses on a content-related dispute, but what really sticks in the craw of geeks are the technical limitations Apple imposes on app developers.
