I have to pick a new phone
My T-Mobile contract is almost up, and the wife is making me switch to AT&T so we can go on a family plan and save some money (I agreed to it months ago, but I bitch nonetheless). I'm down to two phones, and I'm truly torn. Now, I know when most of you hear AT&T, you think one thing:
Yup, the iPhone. It's a great phone, and has surpassed the Razr as the best selling mobile phone. It's got all the cool Apple based features, apps, and the music player built in. But I just don't know. Something about it just doesn't sit well with me. I really can't explain it.
So here's the other phone I'm thinking about:The Blackberry Bold. I've owned a Blackberry Pearl for the last year and a half, and I've loved it as a phone. I could get another one since it's so popular and still sold, but I don't want another Pearl for the next two years. I've moved on. However, this new Blackberry is definitely sexy and it has all the good Blackberry stuff that goes with it. And a full keyboard.
Part of the lure of the Blackberry might have to do with the fact that it's a little more grownup than the iPhone. I'm sure lots of important businessmen have iPhones, but when I imagine myself hustling to my job on LaSalle street in my nicest suit, good shoes, and skinny black tie, I imagine having a Blackberry on my ear (sell my JP Morgan stock now!), not white Apple headphones in my ears (unaware of the pummeling my best mutual fund is taking).
Now, if AT&T had the Storm, it wouldn't even be a question. This is why I get to bitch about the Family Plan. Ugh, this decision is going to SUCK.
