I thought the crackberry was the most awesome fun ever, and even though it served me very well during the time I used it… well the droid is superior in every way.

I have been playing with Bea’s iPhone since she got it and besides some of the games on it I did not find it a “fun” device. The touchscreen just did not seem to agree with my fingers, however, the droid is very responsive and I can even type on the screen… I could not accomplish that much on an iPhone. The plus is the slide keyboard that I prefer to use for texting and other messaging.

Using the voice search feature is also amazing. The blackberry did that as well with one of the google apps, but this interface is much, much simpler.

I still need to finish up my contact transferring and start doing some picture taking, but so far I am glad I finally upgraded to a droid. Any app suggestions welcome!
