A bit late to contribute to this thread, but two issues decided it for me:

1) You can run whatever software you choose on Android phones.  Apple
control what you can run on an iPhone (and it appears that you can't
currently run *any* GPL software on it).

2) Android phones will play Ogg/Vorbis music files, and that's the
format all my music is in.  iPhones won't.

These may not be relevant to you, but they drove my decision.  Two
months in and I'm very pleased with my N1.
