I don't wish to reopen familiar and hackneyed battle lines between Mac-lovers and those less impressed by what the people at Apple do. But...I have just begun a job in which a smartphone will make life easier and now I need some smart advice. Work not being graphic design etc, Windows is the platform of choice. The main reason for a smart phone is the email communication I would have 'on the go'. Program used is Outlook. I'll want Calendar syncing (very important too); web browsing; Gchat etc. My concerns are: will the lack of physical buttons on the iPhone make it longer/harder to write emails than with a BB; will there be problems in syncing data such that a Bold or Curve is preferable? I just want a hassle-free set-up, that doesn't involve connecting and disconnecting wires all the time, and allows me to write emails quickly and with few mistakes. If I can get all of this with an iPhone then sign me up for one. Ideally you will have owned or tried for substantial amounts of time both types of smartphone. Any comments on this welcome and keep it clean! Thanks. I should also add that I own a MacBook at home, running Parallels.
