Doug's Mailbag: Mobile Recommendations

Readers share picks for their favorite mobile OS:

You really should spend some time with a Windows phone before you get an iPhone. I know the choice is limited at Verizon, but I've had the HTC Trophy since it was released and I can't complain. It just works. Never any trouble syncing with my Exchange server or anything else it's supposed to do. I have an app for connecting to my home server, so all my data is always available. I don't have an Xbox or a Facebook account, but I hear the integration is great, if you need it. And, Office document support is built in.

Glad to see RIM still getting new stuff. I got a Windows Phone the day it was released on Sprint and have had access to Office 365 since it released. Welcome to the party!

Why not Windows Phone?
-Stuart
People still use Blackberry devices? Sorry, perhaps a bit too flippant. On a more serious note, you mention moving to an iPhone.  Let me ask, have you considered an Android device?
