I'm hoping the great collective wisdom of the forum can give me a recommendation on a good smartphone. It's time for my sprint upgrade. Right now I have separate (crappy cheap) cell phone (samsung) and Tungsten E2. I run Ubuntu with evolution on my laptop. Here's what I need in a new phone/pda:
1. Calendar Task project lists similar to the E2
2. Reliable phone (my old phone with sprint was fine, but the samsung breaks up constantly. So I don't think my problems have anything to do with sprint but with the phone)
3. Digital voice recorder for quick capturing, or, voice capturing by phone but with long recording times (like more than 2 minutes while I er and umm)
4. Note pad and memos as with the E2.
5. Easy, reliable, faithful syncing with evolution (probably a tall order. I'm willing to change to firebird and jpilot, but would rather not if I can help it)
Email would be nice, but I'm coming around to the realization that I spend too much time over the course of the day checking it. If I could do it 24-7, I might never get anything else done, on the other hand so much of what I need to get done can be done through email (or is that my addiction providing a rationalization...?)
I like Palm OS, but it's been a bit problematic for me, and, I know, for many others as well.
Thank you in advance!!
