Things I would like to know
How large is the screen and does it have a swype keyboard? I got a Captivate last week and am very happy with it. Except I miss my emails being there faster then on the BIS.
I would like to know how large the screen is, do the borders disappear when you go to the web. I do not miss having a regular key board and I was afraid I would. Does it have a swype keyboard. Can you talk and will it put what you say into your email and message app.
The other thing I miss is the ability to say call some one and it will it dial. Though my bold never got the name right. I am told that the update will fix it on the captivate. Also how is the GPS does it pick up right away. Is there a GPS and wireless locator option.
I am going to go to the store tomorrow and play with one though, I don't think I will switch unless the screen is has big as the captivate and it has options for a swype or android type board. Like I said I really don't miss the physical board at all.
Then the other factor is having gone through 3 pearls and 4 bolds in about 2 years I am still afraid of their quality. Even with the track pad my friend on his Bold returned it twice. It messed up when you pressed down on it.
I am not trying to bash the phone, I was afraid to get the captivate. I am just trying to compare these things and then decide if I want to try it. I still have about 3 weeks to decide and will be reading the forums and what people like, dislike and problems that pop up on the phone.
One thing if you have one and it has a swype board, use it because it is amazing at how fast you can type with a little practice.Feel the Sunshine on your Face.
