So the time has come for me to consider getting a new phone. My current phone, the TREO755 is struggling to keep up with my social media needs. Aside from the fact that there is no good mobile Twitter application, for awhile now the mic has been acting up – causing calls to sound fuzzy and I’ve been putting up with it because it was satisfying my social media cravings.
Everything was going along just fine until Christmas break when it failed me twice. The first time was when my friend 5chw4r7z twittered about a new mobile video application – Qik. The application allows you to take video with your mobile phone and in essence, tweet it. Being a professional stalker (er, um doting mother) of my children, I wanted it. I logged on to Qik’s site, registered and BAM – The TREO is not yet supported. FAIL.
The second instance occured when I was logged into Pandora. Listening to my Bing Crosby inspired music list, I noticed that Pandora had a mobile application. SWEET. I could take it with me? I could play it in the car? How great is that. I click through the prompts and BAM – The TREO is not supported. FAIL.
It’s just so depressing. The TREO is a great phone but nobody seems to create applications for it.
So now I need your help. I need to know which phone I should go with, the Blackberry or the iPhone. A contract is not an issue as I don’t have one on my current phone so I can go with any provider.
I put together this quick poll and would also love your thoughts in the comment section as to which one you’d pick. I’m looking for a phone that can support my new media habit as well as my phone needs.
