I have a Moto RAZR which has served me well for the year I’ve had it but I need to have mobile access to my email. I’ve got the Gmail Java app which is pretty good for reading but text entry is more work than I’d like to see. I would also like a better web browsing experience than offered on the RAZR’s bundled browser or the surprisingly good Opera mini.
Since I’m a year into my two year service contract, I can’t just go over to Amazon and buy a Treo 680 (free after rebate + another 2 years) or Samsung BlackJack (+$25 after rebate + another 2 years). I’ll have to wait until next January which is just too long. So now I’m looking on eBay for used Treos, Nokia’s and HTC’s but not certain that’s the right bridge solution until next year… I just need something that will work for the next 7 months and, if my consulting business takes off, I might just spring for one of those iPhones then 😉
One last thing, I don’t like Blackberry’s becasue they remind me of my geeky Handspring VisorPhone back in the day.
