    Verizon phones

    I am up for a new phone on the 26th. Right now I have an Android phone and I do like it but my company is Blackberry integrated which makes going back to Blackberry very tempting. I liked the Blackberry system but I had the Storm 1 which was an enormous fail. I know some of you guys out there pay a lot of attention to this stuff so I would like to know if there will be anything new coming out that I should take a look at as far as Droid or Blackberry. Right now, I would probably go with the Bold as everyone I know who has one loves it. All thoughts are appreciated.


    It's all snark from here on out

    If you go Blackberry I would wait till the Storm 3 (Reportedly coming out sometime this year). It will be a large upgrade over anything Bberry has to offer right now. If you go the Android route the Thunderbold is coming out in a bit as well as the Droid Bionic. Those 3 would be my top choices (Spec-wise) if you were looking at Bberry or Droid. I personally don't like Blackberry because of their clear lack of innovation, and inability to be on the cutting edge.

    BB Messenger rumored to be headed to android
    BBM again rumored to be Android-bound, possibly by year's end | Android Central

    As for android phones... Bionic, Thunderbolt... or in a couple months the Incredible2 will probably be out, which would also be a great option.

    Re: Verizon phones

    If your company has an exchange server, which I would guess they do, there really should be no advantage to a BB over your current android phone or any new smart phone.

    I'd say go and play with some phones, determine how big of a phone you want and if a physical keyborad is important to you, then pick the one you like the best (knowing you'll likely have it for 2 years)
