............anyway, i'll be needing a new carrier and new phone. basically i'm pretty set on android. i love everything google does, i use gmail and everything else they offer, i think they're the greatest company in god's green earth, blah blah blah; i hate microsoft and can't imagine a windows mobile phone enticing me; it would probably have to falaciate me while bill gates kissed my toes, and even that might not do it; as far as i'm concerned, apple will be the next microsoft, and i love open source, so android it is i think
oh, and SHORT-SELL palm stock; they are going under; i said it when the pre came out. i said, yeah, it's nice, it works, i's a cool little phone, BUT BUT BUT the competion is GOD and THE HOLY SPIRIT. GOD being the iphone that is so all-dominating and sexy that it eclipses not only our sun, but every sun in the universe. the HOLY SPIRIT is android which is going to be great (and for crying out loud, it already is..........i really didn't think it would get this good this fast, but it's only gonna get better from here)
but now i'm thinking of 4g too. but i'm thinking it'll be 5 years at least before 4g networks are for real, eh? what do you think?
i can get the moto droid for $20 with 2yr contract of course, on amazon.com (check it out). i really dig the droid. it's got lots of pixels. it's nice to have a physical keyboard, although honestly this one is not so great. still, i can use it and see everything on the screen at the same time. otherwise, the touchscreen keyboard was just as good as my iphone 3g.
i opened craigslist on safari on the iphone and on the 'browser" on the droid at the verizon store (what "browser" that browser is i dunno)................anyway, on the iphone i couldn't read it, because of the low-rez screen. on the droid, i COULD read it. i want those pixels, i want them dammit.
even if apple comes out with it's next gen phone soon, unless it comes with a 4g network rolled out accross the country, i still just wanna go with android.
.........but my question is: what phone????????????????? the droid is cool, and it sold really well; that means good support, and that's important for me. the nexus one is coming to verizon soon (i think i'll be going to verizon for their network and 3g speeds but am open to other options...............i get discounts on all networks i think through UC-Irvine)
the nexus one has sold like **** on t mobile, but maybe that's cuz they only have it online. how stupid is that????? it's a cool phone. it has a few less pixels than the droid which bothers me a bit. but it has the 1ghz snapdragon processor and 512mb ram rather than the droid which has less of both. THAT right there is weighing heavy on my mind.
btw, i will be buying TWO smartphones and a family plan. one for me and one for my girl. we don't have to get the same phone but of course need the same network. she needs a full fledged smartphone for exchange support for work but otherwise she HATES technology and uses none of it. i opened her "maps" app on her iphone about six months after buying it and she'd never used it. anyway, i'm gonna get her the cheapest smartphone that can do what she needs, and she'll follow me on whatever network i want. if the droid stays at $20 that'll probably be hers.
anyway, there's also talk of the HTC incredible. well, i have some months to wait here, but i dunno. a big part of me would like to buy the droid right now and be done with it. i'm scared that $20 deal could die. when buying two smartphones that matters. and with my girl, the UP FRONT cost is very important. even if i reason with her that "the real cost is what we pay every month" it matters little. anyway, what i'm saying is that if i can pay little up front, i can convince her to get what i want
........help me!!!!!!!!!!! i want the 1ghz and 512mb of the nexus one. but i want the $20 of the droid. i actually really like the boxy edges of the droid, i like the slide out keyboard, i even like the weight and size. i really like it. it even feels quick. i just don't want some kickass app to come out and find out the droid isn't quite fast enough. also, i have a nintendo DS so i don't give a **** about games. i just want pandora radio, lots of music stuff, kickass browser, gmail and google everything. google voice. google nav with turn by turn. all that good ****. i love google and i LOVE open source. i have linux on every pc that i can manage to put it on. help me
