Okay, so I’m in the market for a cell phone. This time around I want a PDA style smartphone. I have verizon and I’m switching from a Razr v3m. without cost being a factor, let’s discuss…
I do a lot of text messaging, I also will need to check my email from it. Wireless web is nice to have (The razr seemed to have a subpar wireless web option).
I use a bluetooth headset. so it would be nice to have this feature.
Verizon now offers the verizon GPS based on navigation. I REALLY like this feature and plan to subscribe. Having a phone with the ability to access this is going to be a determining factor.
I like to have the freedom to customize my phone (My verizon RAZR was terrible with that) It would be nice to have the ability to connect it to my computer.
a camera really isn’t that important… I don’t take many pictures with the one I have.
Easy menus would be nice. I hate having to go through 6 different screens just to access a calendar or calculator.
Touchscreen is not necessary.
Size is important… I like slim, something to fit in my pocket.
I have an IPOD so an MP3 player isn’t incredibly necessary.
So, right now, it seems through verizon I have the options of a Treo 650 or 700, a motorola Q, and a blackberry, I don’t think verizon offers sidekicks…
The motorola Q is the frontrunner for me right now. It seems thin and has most of what I want. I had a Treo 650 before but traded it because I didn’t need all of the features (Now I do) plus, it was big and bulky. I’m not familiar at ALL with blackberries.
So, what do you think? The list is not limited to the above but help me! What are the plusses and minuses and in your opinion, which smartphone should I buy?
