    I'd shoot over to sprintusers.com as I've read several posts on both phones. My daughter just upgraded to the A900 and has all good things to say. She showed me how she uses google maps and it was cool, basically a roadmap in a phone. She loves the reception and the capabilities it give her.

    I just got the 920 after debating over the 900. better batter life and memory card is what sold me. the 900's screen sure is nice though...

    I just purchased the A900 with a SERO plan. My second choice was the A920. I will try the blade for a couple of weeks and if its not as awesome as I expect it to be I will return it within the 14 day period and switch to the A920. :)

    Honestly, they're both awesome phones...it's really what is important to you that matters.

    All other things considered equal, here's the main differences between them:

    A900:
    Sleeker, slimmer, but a little taller and narrower
    Larger screen than A920
    Ability to use the USB for file transfers and contacts
    Metal body
    Only 48mb available for MP3s and pictures, kinda limits the phone, imho.

    A920:
    A little narrower, and smaller, but not nearly as thin
    Onboard stereo speakers, though you won't be wowed by them.
    Removeable Transflash memory card for MP3 and photo storage. Currently supports upto 512mb, though I've heard of 1gb being used. TF to SD adaptor and 32mb card included.
    You can't just upload MP3s, ringtones, or games onto the TF, you need to use a service like Rumkin.

    Strengths of both phones:
    Great reception, only to be bested by Sanyo phones.
    Bluetooth connectivity
    External media player controls, stereo headsets included.
    PictBridge photo printing with compatible printers.
    Included media player application
    EVDO fast wireless Internet

    Weaknesses both phones share:
    Slow to capture pictures, best to use 800x600 mode rather than 1.3mp.
    The external display turns OFF after a few moments of inactivity...not just dim, but OFF...a few times i thought my phone had actually died.
    Neither phone actually includes full version games, just limited demos.
