I was rockin' the LG Dare, which at first seemed like a really cool phone. It was all touch screeny and sexy like. Then after about a month I came to a realization: this phone blows.
When I bought it, there were supposed to be apps that would be coming out, but then that never happened (seriously, if I would check facebook online, it would say to download the app for the Dare, but then it would say not found...). Also, I started to notice that I was not adapting to the touchscreen keyboard. In fact, I was downright terrible with it. Then a coworker got an iPhone and I asked if I could try to keyboard. Guess what? I could type on that one. So, I reverted back to texting the old fashioned way, using the key pad. "Hey whats up?" Or in that language: "4433999SPACE944287777SPACE887111". Jesus Christ that is time consuming. But, if I used the keyboard, it would end up looking like "heu qwhjats uop?"
Droid recently and then again here. I went to the store with the intention of just looking (even though my mind was pretty much made up).
Needless to say, just looking did not work out so well. I played with it for about eleven seconds and decided that I wanted the Droid X. I have used it a good bit for the first two days (I worked third shift, what else was I supposed to do, just kidding Work Overlords if you are reading).
I love that there are apps for my fantasy sports through Yahoo, I have not downloaded them yet, but I hope they allow me to check my teams (I cannot imagine what else they would be for). Instead of going through ten screens to find the Pens score, I can just hit the Pens app and I know that they beat Boston 3-2.
The best thing though? Bubble Breaker (or whatever it is called)! This came with my old Motorola Q and I seriously played over 10,000 games. It actually kept track of how many games you played, when I got jumped and lost the phone it had been around 4,000 and then on the second phone I played another 6,000. It was so much fun.
Needless to say, I am definitely diggin' the new phone. Also, I really enjoyed this commercial when it came out (I wonder if it influenced my decision?)
