Because I was sitting at home last night and saw the Blackberry Bold 9930...and my throat got sore. My body got tense. That's the feeling I get when I know I need to make a decision.

It's still feeling that way today at work.

I know I know I knoooooow....BB's don't have many apps, and stock prices are down, and customization ain't easy....

But, here are my 3 criteria I've had for awhile:

1) Keyboard that doesn't bother me (MUST)
2) Battery life
3) Integration

And I think this phone hits all 3.

Now, I'm sure there's plenty of threads asking for advice between this and that, and if there was a section this should have went in, my apologies. My question is...is there a phone that will be hitting Verizon by Dec that will hit all 3 of my criteria. I've thought about the Droid 3, but I dislike the idea of anything outside of stock Android. I'm just not a fan of social tools and stuff...no matter how much I lie to myself. I can't think of anything else that would fit the bill and searching for android phones is a dang mission due to the vast number of them.

If there is one I'm overlooking, please let me know. I can then compare it and see if it will keep me away from leaving. As of now though...I think in late Oct/early Nov, I might be leaving the Android family. I'll still keep my O.G droid for backup...but, I just always love it when those 3 criteria gel together. It's why I loved my old Nokia e71 and what I thought I would have w/my droid.


*I'm also open to a Windows phone that does this job...

The biggest deterrent I've seen is that most BB apps are paid apps.

Ah I don't care about the apps or anything...just those 3...

I'll pay for something that's useful

I've heard of the Droid Pro and I'm going to try out the keyboard when I go to the Verizon store. I just hope the keys aren't rigid or flat...
