9850 vs. Motorola Droid Razr
My college-age son got a Motorola Droid Razr for an early Christmas present, and I was forced to admit that it made my 9850, which I had been so proud of, looks pitiful in comparison. He got the lap-dock, which provides a screen, keyboard, and USB mouse support, and it honestly behaves like a modestly powered small laptop, with full Firefox and Java, Open Office, NetFlix and other media applications, a blindingly fast LTE network connection, etc, etc. He plans to pack it in his backpack to class rather than his Mac laptop, since it weighs so much less than the laptop. He also got a navigation dock for use in his car, which causes the phone to switch to a screen that looks like a standalone navigation device like a TomTom.
He calls my Blackberry a one-trick horse (e-mail & messaging). I will be keeping my Blackberry, since that one trick is what is most important for me personally, but it was painful to watch. It made me see why Blackberry is in third place for smart phones.
