An Android Aside

Some of you may know I've been struggling with what smartphone to get next. Fact is, I could have gotten a free phone from Verizon way back in March, but I'd have to wait a full two years for another freebie. I decided to wait.  Not for another Blackberry, heck no, but for either the iPhone 5 or the next Windows Phone.

Some of you have suggested an Android device. A couple of my kids have had 'em and they weren't feeling the love. And an unnamed former huge Microsoft exec whose technical chops are impeccable recently complained about not getting his Android phone to fully connect to his Exchange folders. If this guy couldn't get it to work, what hope is there for mere mortals?
