Comparison: Verizon iPhone 4 & Two Hot New Android Smartphones [INFOGRAPHIC]

Thinking of picking up one of those new Verizon iPhones? Take a look at this infographic first.

Here’s a comparison of two Verizon-bound smartphones recently introduced at CES 2011, with Verizon’s iPhone 4 rolled out last week sandwiched in between. Created by one of Skatter Tech‘s student reporters, it’s remarkably comprehensive.

When you compare the Motorola Droid Bionic and HTC Thunderbolt to the iPhone 4, the iPhone starts to look like last year’s model. Well, that’s because it is.

However, the iPhone 4′s screen resolution is still higher than the other two, and then there’s that iTunes App Store with 300,000 choices for the iPhone, as opposed to the Android Market’s 200,000 apps (and counting fast) for the other two phones (sorry, kid, but you got that number wrong in your infographic).

What we really wanted to see in this comparison was the darling of CES, the Motorola Atrix 4G, that R2-D2-like smartphone that’s powerful enough to be the brains of a laptop, plugging in to its back for an instant large screen and keyboard.

Too bad there’s no 4G capability yet on the iPhone, the lack of which will make those who pick up the Verizon version next month feel like they’re holding onto an antique long before their contracts run out.

Peruse this infographic, and see if the features that are important to you are eclipsed by a model that’s not your favorite:
