Hi Guys-

Maybe you can help.

I've waited long enough for Blackberry to enter the new century but to no avail.

I'd now like to purchase an Android base phone that offer comparable email handing as Blackberry tied to a POP server and with a QWERTY keyboard for the Verizon Network.

What would you recommend and if something was intro'd at the MWC, I'd be willing to wait to avoid buyer remorse.

Thanks for your recommendation is advance,

Jeff

Hey Android Atlas Crew!

I am in need of help. In two weeks I am due for a phone upgrade on Verizon.

I have narrowed my choices down between the Droid Incredible and Samsung Fascinate.

Each has its pros and cons, but I can’t seem to lean one way or another.

Please please please help by pushing me to one side or the other. Thanks so much!

Paul
