Ok gadget pals, I put my money where my mouth is and stopped by my local Verizon store after work today. It’s crazy how busy this store is. I think it gets more action than the Best Buy store a few yards away. I had narrowed my choices down to the HTC Droid Incredible 4G and the Samsung Galaxy S III. The Google Nexus had also been on my list, but I remembered it lacked a microSD slot, so that knocked it off the list. I already pretty much knew which phone I was going to pick, but since it had been a few weeks since I had the HTC or Samsung in my hands, I wanted to check them out one more time just to be sure. Click through if you want to see which phone I now have in my hot little hand.
Yes, I went with the Samsung Galaxy S III. I was going to get the White one, but they only had the 32GB version in Blue, so I was fine with that. I also ditched my unlimited plan for the share everything plan, which has me saving $10 a month once I get my 4G iPad switched over. They weren’t able to do that without knowing the iPad’s MEID number, so I will have to take in next week.
Things I will miss by not using the iPhone:
1. iMessaging with Dave Rees
2. … I can’t think of another reason yet.
Have a happy weekend everyone!
