Hello! We're new to Droids and I wanted to get one for my husband who is not terribly technical. His requirements would be: 1) an easy-to-use keyboard for texting. (He cannot use buttons.); 2) apps for traffic, weather, etc. - not video games or watching TV; 3) reliable and speedy connections; and 4) ease of us - above all!! He's an EXTREMELY bright guy, but it drives him crazy when the only methods for completing functions are by using an obtuse combination of tiny buttons on the sides of the phone. The clearer the better! We're in the greater DC/Baltimore area, so there should be very little reason for poor reception. Thanks for your advice!!
