I am behind the times, in the cell-phone world.
My current phone, an HTC Tilt 2, runs Windows Mobile 6.5, and I bought it used for $60 (craigslist) after my prior Tilt was stolen, in Costa Rica last December. I do NOT have a data-plan, and am grand-fathered in at AT&T so that I am not required to have it.
I am quite happy with it, but it's been a little flaky lately, so I am looking to replace it.
I use WiFi to sync my Web calendar and Web email with the phone's calendar and mail clients, and browse the Web with a very lean, free, WAP-compatible browser (UCWeb). I don't really feel deprived, not having always-on Internet - WiFi only works generally fine for me.
It's got Word and Excel, which I use.
I don't use it to listen to music (have a teeny, dedicated MP3 player, that also has an FM radio).
I don't use the camera, since the camera stinks and I have a nice camera.
I have a free eBook reader (Freda) and have loaded several books on the microSD, which is very convenient. Therefore, I don't need a dedicated eReader (although I am very intrigued by the Nook Color).
I have resisted buying into iPhone world, mostly because I feel the need to deprive Steve Jobs of the satisfaction.
Here are the features I want in a phone:
* Sync my calendar
* browse the web
* read eBooks
* Google Maps
* word and excel, or equivalent
* calculator, notepad
* standard Phone stuff
Here's what I don't need:
* Twitter, Facebook, and myspace integration.
* GPS navigation
* fancy games
I am looking at Windows 7 phones, and Android phones. Anyone have any suggestions?
