Droid for Tech-Challenged Dad?
Hey guys, Eris owner here,
My dad needs a new phone to open excel docs and check his email
I'm thinking he should just get a Blackberry because well, he barely knows how to attach a file to an email on MS Outlook. He is extremely forgetful on how to navigate menus and its extremely frustrating to deal with it after about 10 years of trying to make him understand the mystery of MS Windows.
What has a more user friendly UI, he doesn't need all the fancy add ons of the Droid, just something SIMPLE AS POSSIBLE.
So which one is easiest to use? I was thinking of getting him the BB Tour if I got him a BB.

Well!! Taking the liberty of talking for all tech challenged old people, I must say the Droid is wonderful!! I just got mine this morning. I have never had a smart phone before, and I was worried about figuring it out. OK....I was worried when I saw the skinny little multi fold rather than an actual manual. JUst by looking on this forum and googling my problems, I have figured out tons of stuff. Just having a regular stupid phone helps a person understand the intuitive steps.
I can't WAIT to show my Iphone son all my droid can do! He is already razzing me about the "theoretical" superiority of his phone. When he comes home for Christmas he and I will have a phone SMACK DOWN!!
I plan on tackling importing music tomorrow, but I have already got Pandora working! I just logged onto my online account and....BOOM...their were all of my party and easy listening playlists!
