My eyes have been officially opened.
I have now been a Droid owner for about one week. I must say that it is a HUGE change from the iPhone 3G. Actually, HUGE is not emphatic enough. The iPhone was working just fine and actually still works just fine. But after a while, I stopped receiving the updates for the phone. The updates were applied to the iPhone 3GS and newer phones. Slowly, the performance dwindled a little but still did fine. And then it happened…
It came time to get my wife a new phone. So I went to the store and started checking on some options for her. Simple taste. Nothing fancy. Just a phone. She previously had a Blackberry Bold 9000. She loved it until it completely crashed. So I was just going to go and get a replacement for her. I did a little research online and there were some pretty good deals, so I went on to the store.
The next thing I know, I got Lovely a new Blackberry Curve 9300 and I walked out of there with a Motorola Atrix 4G. Now, Lovely’s phone is quite nice. I like it a lot. But the Atrix 4G is a force to be reckoned with. Dual Core processor, finger-print recognition technology doing away with passwords and PINs. qHD screen produces an amazing display.
I must confess that this is my first real interaction with a Droid phone. I am still getting used to it because it is completely different than my iPhone. But it is worth the time to get to know something new.
If you are considering a new phone and you are nearly at the end of your contract, go with the Motorola Atrix 4G. I have never seen anything like this. I am one happy customer. I just have to learn how to make the Droid jive with my MacBook Pro. Ahhhh….I love the smell of technology in the morning. (well, pretty much any time.)
