Road Warriors beware... Not ready for prime time for us business users...
Well, I have been playing with the droid for a week now and have made the sad decision to return it and go back to my Windows 6.1 phone ....
My primary reasons for returning it are because I am a serious road warrior with my phone and it is a critical business tool.
My Droid fails as a business tool in a couple areas (where my Samsung i760 does great)
1-teathering, got it to work but it is slow and a bit of a pain
2-Exchange outlook, email synces great, but the mail client is lacking functionality (accept invites, sort, folders, etc)
3- calander (corporate) very lacking in functionality
4- call signal strength, I loose calls easily, and people complain of poor voice quality on their end
5- lack of edit capability on docs, xls, other office stuff (some apps available for a price though)
6-very hard to use while driving as everything takes multiple taps, slides, or other visual type things to do. Not good in a state where cell phone usage has strict limitations
7-keyboard is a bit hard to use compared the great keyboard on the 760 (I could get used to it, and the landscape onscreen keyboard is actually very good)
8-Bluetooth functionality is very poor. No handsfree dial, voice command.
I think the phone is great for a casual user and the form factor is nice and it feels solid.
I know there are OS updates due out in mid Dec, and again in Jan. that will (may) address some of this, but since I only have a 30 day window to decide if I want to keep it, I have decided to stay with my bulky but tried and true i760 and re-evaluate the droid once the new OS patch is released.
Not trying to rain on any parades, just wanted to give my feedback to those who are looking for a business phone and are not able to compromise on the core phone and PIM functions we are accustomed to.
Not trying to be negative , just sharing my observations
I am only trying to give MY observations of the functionality provided currently as it is.
I'm glad your requiements are met by the Droid, and I am not trying to diss it. Just trying to let anybody who is on the fence about buying one know that it has some missing features that many of the business focused phones that use the other OS's have as standard features and if you require those features, this phone may have issues/compromises for you...
