If you have read my prior posts, and my Windows Phone 7 page, you know I am very disappointed that Microsoft abandoned the poweruser with their new phone OS. Today I abandoned Microsoft’s mobile OS. I upgraded my Sprint Touch Pro to a new Sprint Epic 4G Android. With Microsoft’s abandonment of the poweruser, Android is the logical choice since the iPhone is so restricted. Boston does not have 4G yet, but is scheduled for the 4G upgrade next month.
One of the reasons I delayed switching from Windows Mobile to Android was the lack of a HanDBase database client for Android. I update several databases daily, so HanDBase is a critical app for me. Although not available yet, the HanDBase site indicates an Android client should be available in the near future. That is all the info I needed to cement my platform switch to Android. In the interim, I will use my current Windows Mobile devices to update the databases.
I am familiar with the Galaxy S devices since I have a Vibrant as well. I am impressed with the hardware keyboard on the Epic, and as with the Vibrant, the Super AMOLED screen is exceptional.
More updates to follow.
