Of course, open source software is big plus.
I’m aware of the awesome Apple iOS apps, but I also see lots of good ones for Android. I won’t necessarily install a lot of Android apps, but it’s nice to have the option.
Most importantly, I still don’t want to leave the Verizon Wireless network.
Over these next two days, I’m importing, consolidating, purging, and organizing my contacts into Google Contacts with tips from:
- “Use Google Contacts as a Unified Address Book” by Digital Inspiration, and
- “The Complete Guide to Fixing Google Contacts” by Lifehacker.
I’m also looking forward to:
- a better camera phone, along with the ability to upload full-res photos to Flickr[1. The LG Dare resizes photos before sending.].
- Pandora Radio (or Slacker Radio, suggested by a friend because of caching)
sync plain text files with Dropbox (e.g. future blog post ideas, reference)
- access to Remember The Milk anywhere
- the ability to write and post [on my blogs] from anywhere, without a desktop or notebook computer
- Google Maps
At the end of the day, I’m just a geek.
Oh, I ordered the HTC Droid Incredible from AmazonWireless for $0.01 with free two-day shipping. They check your account upgrade date. Their purpose (my emphasis added):
AmazonWireless is a new website by Amazon.com that offers cell phones and wireless plans, easy shopping without rebate hassles, and FREE two-day shipping.
