Well, with my old Blackberry Pearl 8120 slowly losing functions – first email, then web – I did a little research and decided to stick with T-Mobile (I have a great unlimited rate plan) and get the new Google Nexus One Android phone. It’s had some great reviews, as well as a lot of negative press related to the fact there is no user phone support.
I checked into the iPhone – I like Apple products, use a Macbook Pro as well as – of course – an iPod. But its still only available for ATT, and my SF friends get a lot of dropped calls. I’d have been more interested if it were on Verizon by now.
I got the Google phone overnight, and now have it set up, basically. And it rocks!! Its good looking, has a great screen, and is fast – like greased lightning compared to my Pearl. Its already synched all my Apple Address book contacts – something I could never get with my Blackberry which would not take the common vCard format. I had tried the Googlesync but it duplicated a lot of contacts in my Pearl, and my Pearl had no easy de-dupe.
Its already downloaded my Picasa albums – and my calendar is synced. Now, I already use gmail, google calendar and Picasa. And the integration has been seamless so far.
I’ve a lot to learn about it – just getting started, and will keep you posted on the experience.
