It seems that phones have finally merged successfully enough with other gadgets like MP3 players, PDA's etc, and I'm debating arranging a better handset for work use. Ideally I would like the following:
Sync phone data with Outlook (calendar, contacts, tasks)
Smaller is better for carrying this in my pocket instead of a mobile
No need to sync with Exchange etc
Managing and recording the jobs I need to do is currently a pain, my mobile has a task list thing but being a normal mobile keypad makes it a right pain to input anything other than a few words, and accessing the tasks is so fiddly I never bother. In ways this is the main area I want to improve on and hope that a better handset with decent software would be beneficial.
I have a work mobile through Vodaphone and I'm tied to them, but I can obviously get SIM Free handsets for Blackberry and HTC devices etc. Vodaphone are soon to start selling the iPhone but I do have a penchant for Windows based devices. I like the look of the forthcoming HTC Touch II, seems to tick all the boxes for me but I've not really used anything beyond a normal mobile and an older Windows PDA.
Anyone got any thoughts on these things? Plenty of reviews out there, but real life experience is sometimes more relevant!
