I'm a long-time Mac user, have an iMac, a Macbook Air and an iPad 2. I'm due for a new phone, but I'm tired of staring at the same interface on all my devices and wouldn't mind something different as long as it won't cause huge headaches. I've been using the LG Optimus One for the past year because it was cheap and I had just lost a brand new iPhone at the time. It's clearly laggy and overall not as polished an experience as IOS, but Android has been decent and for the price I can't complain at all. I recently played around with an HTC Radar and found the Windows Phone 7.5 surprisingly slick. The upcoming Nokia Sea Ray looks pretty nice too. I don't need a lot of apps and I don't play games often (i'm more likely to use my iPad anyway). I just want really good core apps (email, music player, web, productivity, whatsapp, etc.) and I want to be able to sync with my Apple universe, and also to tether to my iPad. Are the available sync programs sufficient? Will I be tied to Bing for everything? What will I be missing out on? Any feedback much appreciated!
