I've been on a BlackBerry forever (first one was a 6750, and been using them ever since. Now I'm using a 9900). But.. I'd like to try out Android. I messed around with my Dad's Galaxy Tab 10.1 with ICS for a week, and I really liked it. I'd like to try out a phone.
I'm due for a subsidized hardware upgrade in February 2014, and I plan on getting a BB10 device at that time, but I thought I really should check out the competition. So I am thinking that in the meantime I'd sell my Bold 9900 (I have a few accessories as well: leather pocket, spare battery, external battery charger, two docks) and buy an Android device (that I could buy directly with the dollars gained from selling my 9900).
Is the Galaxy S2 or Galaxy Nexus the best Android devices of similar vintage to my 9900, that I could conceivably sell my 9900 for, or trade for? Any other recommendations? I'm fully okay with rooting a device and installing a non standard ROM. I can't stand Touchwiz and Sense (that much I know from very brief forays with friends' 1X and GS3), so I'm hoping to use CM or similar, or vanilla JB.
If you can find a Gnex for the same price as your 9900, I would recommend it over the SGSII.
