i finally got my razr hacked the way i want it. this is just in time for me to just plain want a new phone.
right now i'm looking for a phone that has a qwerty keyboard. i'd like to be able to transfer files to and from my pc. i'd like it to play music, altho on a limited basis as i have an ipod. it should play media on the internet, and display the internet as close to with a regular browser as possible.
i'd like an iphone. but who wouldn't? talk about rockin! but i don't have at&t.
i looked at the lg voyager. it seems nice enough. but while trying it in the store, it seemed really slow as hell. i tried to get it to play some content online, but couldn't manage because of flash restrictions, lack of a decent media player, and general stupidity. maybe mine.
i also looked at the lg env2. it was ok, but the browser was fugly. a bit faster than the voyager tho. no touch screen, but i can hang as long as the rest works ok. it currently doesn't. again, flash restrictions.
i then looked at the blackberry. my girlfriend likes hers, and i can see why. it's substantially faster than the v-ger. the keyboard was weird, and would take some getting used to. i couldn't get it to play media, altho i could see that it has a player that started when i had the content in hand. but still, no ticky, no laundry.
so i looked at the motorola q. as much as i dislike windows, i thought i'd give it a chance. not as fast as the blackberry, but not slow either. good keyboard, but no flash.
so after my failure at the cave, i have to ask here. does anyone here have any good recommendations? i don't mind hacking a phone if it means getting it to work the way i want. ideally i'd like a phone that i can put a linux distro on, but a hacked native distro would be fine as well. just want it to surf the web, play media, and interface with the pc.
thanks in advance
