iPhone all the way! I'm biased cause I'm a loyal Apple customer/investor. But it's the most flexible with all the 3rd party applications being developed for it. If you want to look very "business-like," then a Balckberry is a good solution. Moto Q and Samsung Blackjack seem more like glorifed mp3 players
Where do you find applications for your iPhone?
How much are these devices? How much will it set me back?
I recently purchased the Blackberry after reviewing the iPhone and the owning a Treo for a number of years. The Blackberry has been great. I prefer the keypad versus the touch screen of the iPhone and I also like the large number of applications already in the marketplace for the Blackberry versus the iPhone. It has really allowed me to improve my time away from the desk!
I heard that the Blackberry was not as good as a Windows phone when it comes to internet browsing and viewing email attachments such as word, excel, and powerpoint. In your opinion how is the internet browser on the Blackberry?
The browser is nothing compared to the iPhone. It definitely requires the mobile WML or other such configured site to be optimized. That said, I can't personally read websites on the iPhone and the zoom is damn near useless. I'll qualify that statement with the fact that I have not seen the new 3G display, but I hear its the same. Some people love it, some people hate it - I'm in the latter category.
As far as viewing files on the Blackberry, you are correct. However there is a good app to take care of that:
The email app on the Blackberry is very good too.
Again, a big part of my choice was the typepad. Until haptic technology catches up, I doubt I would ever use a touch screen for a mobile device.
I posted this in another thread, but couldn't resist. Sry
for the repost.
down, the Treo 800W is the best business-class smart phone available. I've
tried them all, from RIM to Apple, to Nokia to Palm. It’s Windows Mobile
"done right." Native GPS, WiFi, EVDO Rev A, BlueTooth, great
screen, fast processor, sufficient internal memory, 2m camera, voice command
and a respectable software suite (I get actual work done with an portable
keyboard - they've started to miss me in the office). Plus TV to boot (I'm with
Sprint), all on the new v6.1 Professional platform. Only down side is the
battery - you need to turn of losta the wireless goodies to sustain battery
life, but pales in comparison to the upside.
I have the windows smartphone HTC mogul and have tried the IPhone and previously owned various models of Blackberry. If you can afford to pony up the extra bucks and don't mind the AT&T headache, then IPhone all the way. The mogul is good, i cant complain with the exception of keyboard glitches here and there. As for Palm product like Treo, they have been all but pronounced dead like Motorola. Does anybody really buy Motorola products any more?
