Okay, I am back. :)
My phone broke in July, and I was using my mom's old phone while I anticipated January 1st, 2012. My mom is a basic "call and barely text" lady...,you should get an idea what kind of phone her old, not current phone was. I am too humiliated to share a picture. It is dang on ancient of days old. Lets leave it at that. My friends make fun of me every-time I pull it out, flip it open, toss back my fine afro head and answer a call. Their laughter is definitely getting old, and I was at my breaking point in September...4 months too soon. lol.
With my upgrade comes the question: which phone should I upgrade to?
iPhone 4s versus Blackberry Bold?
I personally would have opted for a Palm phone, but none of its newest offerings tickle my fancy.
This is a dilemma I have to contend with. I know many people would easily slid over to the iPhone camp, but I might not be old school, however I love my keypads.
I can use either one on international travel, but iPhone has better apps.
I want the BB messenger mainly because I can communicate with most of my friends internationally and nationally who happen to be BB users.
iPhone takes better pictures, but BB takes good enough pictures.
The BB has better calender and scheduling capabilities.
The iPhone is all touch screen, but the newest BB has both keypad and touch screen (yay, where is my Palm when I need it?)
I am not a geeky phone nuts, so I am calling out the features that are important to me. Do you know of any other reason to choose one over the other?
However, it all boils down to the touch screen versus keypad for me. Crazy innit? I am still undecided on what I want. Maybe I would try the iPhone out for 30-days, and if I am not in love, I am getting myself a BB. Everything in me says I would fall in desperate love with the iPhone if I choose it. I owned a BB once for approximately 30 days. I did not like it, and I exchanged it for something else. :(
Gosh, what makes me think I am going to like it now?
I have a friend who is all about the iPhone. He is probably going to kick me if I default to the BB dark side. Such pressure. lol
Geez...it is just a phone, but I am making it such a big deal. lol.
What would you recommend and why?
