I finally made a decision when it came to my phone. I decided to go with the HTC Sensation 4G. I've been wanting to get in on the whole Android thing anyway, and it just seemed that Blackberry wasn't upgrading their OS enough on the Bold 9900. I hope I don't get screwed with the whole way Tmobile manages my new data plan or how I get my emails (which is one of the things Blackberry still does the best). I went to my local Tmobile store and tested both the MyTouch Slide 4G and the HTC Sensation. They have basically the same internal hardware so it came down to the aesthetics and my preferences. I'm going to make the transition to virtual keyboard and go with the Sensation. It will probably take some getting used to but I can't wait to get it. I went through Wirefly.com just because I get a better deal. With 1 year of protection and the phone, it came out to under $200. At any Tmobile store it would have been well over $200. I've dealt with Wirefly before and haven't had any issues so far. The only drawback is that I have to wait for it in the mail, but I've managed this long with my dying Blackberry 8900. I'm sure a few more days won't kill me. I'll keep you guys posted on my thoughts of the phone when I get it and test it out for a few days. I'm especially excited about the WiFi Hotspot/Tethering feature that this phone has. Could it be possible that this could replace my DSL at home? I guess it will depend on how using that feature will affect my data usage. I'll keep you guys posted.
