Is this the devicce to bring me back to BlackBerry?
So there is still nothing better for email and calendar managment than BlackBerry.
Google is close to the above, but nothing fits the hand like the BlackBerry keyboard. I tried the Droid Pro, because it kind of looks like the BlackBerry, and not as bad as only having a touch screen, but the numbers are all wrong.
There are a few things that I now "need" after using Android for 3 years. 1.) Turn-by-turn navigation. Though it kind of makes me feel bad that I am so dependent on Google Navigation, I really have been saved by it and wouldn't want to not have it. 2.) I really do need wi-fi hotspot for my work. Phonescoop says the 9310 has hotspot available but only on some carriers. Does this include Verizon? Is there a monthly charge? If there is an additional monthly charge, can I download an app or hack that will allow me to use it for no additional charge, like I have with my Android?
A few other things that I could live without, but there were not good BlackBerry Options last time I used one. Widgets. Particularly Sports scores. Its really great being able to at a glance go through my top teams (Detroit Tigers, Houston Dynamo, Minnesota Wild) and see the score. Podcasts. Automatic download without the need to tether, connect to PC, etc, saves listening location and automatically cleans up previously listened to (whether its older than a certain amount of time regardless of its listened to, or if its been listened to, and hopefully an option to have some podcasts fit in one category and others in another...I have a comedy one that I would prefer to keep, while all my news ones are fairly useless after a certain age).
Please tell me I can come home :-)
