Not sure if i go Android can anyone help me

Hi

I use to have a HTC diamond from sprint. Now there are very few WM htc phones out there. There are more Android options. It seems that i will go for it.

My bigest concerns are:

conectivity with outlook since all my contact, emails and stuff are in outlook. Of course I will want to email with the android. My primary account is POP can I use it in the device? as primary email?

Office documents, msn messenger, therering and ROM upgrades.

The other thing i love my Garmin Mobile XT in the old Diamond is there any garmin option for android?

Thanks

my adroid options are:

HTC hero, this one I can get with a really good price
HTC incredible
HTC evo shift 4
and not sure if i can get the HTC evo

Any comments on those phones?

1 If you need to sync your phone with outlook, try Companionlink

2. Office Documents...there is QuickOffice that is in most ROMs or in the uninstalled app folder on the sd card.

3. Msn Messenger is avaiable on android

4. Tethering is of course installed on rooted roms

5. ROM upgrades section on PPCGeeks is always active, the biggest dev community by far is the EVO community right now. Most of the chefs you miss in the Diamond forum are found in the EVO forum now.

6. Garmin can be got for free, (with a little know how ) or you can pay, but the Google navigation is quite good.

7. Those phones you mentioned, well you can get the Hero for a good price for a good reason...stay away. The incredible is alright, the Shift 4g is just ok, the EVO is definitely the way to go, if you can get one.

Re: Not sure if i go Android can anyone help me

thanks a lot for the great support.

It does not matter that the EVO is a bit old device compared to the shift and incredible?

What will be the reason that is more popular that new devices?

About the battery life? any coments? my old diamond just drain it like hell.

I will be happy if i can do the day with 1 full chanrge.

No it doesnt matter, the specs speak for themselve. There is also the Epic that is pretty good. However if you hold out and depending on your carrier there will be a bunch of new phones on the market this summer. Like the Thunderbolt from VZW, (evos little brother from HTC), the Thunderbolt comes with a better kickstand, and a speaker under the kick stand for better sound and comes pre packaged with a 32 gb sd card also has same processor speed but a newer generation processor and more ram i believe. But has a smaller battery.
If the Thunderbolt came to Sprint...Id get that in a second. But unless Sprint switches to LTE, (which they will someday) its not happening for me.

Battery life isnt the greatest on the EVO, but with custom roms and some tweaking it can go a day with moderate use.
