    Hello,
    I am not a current droid owner however I am soon to be as soon as July 2nd rolls around:D. I am going to get a Droid X2. I was planning on just the Droid X but since the X2 is only 50 bucks more I thought I would go with the newer model.
    I am pretty sure I am going to sell my 32GB 4th gen iPod touch to get this droid..

    My dad is also wanting to get a smartphone for business but doesn't want to go as big as the Droid X2. I have done a little research but wanted some experienced opinion. He owns a car dealership and his main purpose of the smartphone would be to scan the bar codes at the auction to get instant info and prices. Which of the smaller smartphones would be best choice for my dad? Thanks for any help. And I would like him to stay with android seems how blackberry really sucks...

    welcome to the forum. IMO view all devices, try them out in the stores. the Pro and Droid 2 Global are supposed to be business phones but honestly any Android device can have business apps loaded. I have the Global for my business needs, its ok does what it needs too. just review all the diff subsections on each device on here.

    I don't travel outside of US, I only travel within the states. The preference actually would be his, whether the phone suits his needs. I have a DX and a Xoom and all 3 works out great for nearly all my business needs.
