So today I looked at my old Blackberry Bold 9700, saw the contract was up and decided to renew it.
Let's face it Blackberry phones in general, even the latest, are becoming more than a little dated, and it won't be until summer (maybe) that RIM will release a phone that may compete with iPhones/Android and the like.
So for me it seemed the obvious thing to do was get an Android phone (like the Samsung Galaxy S2) or even an iPhone 4s.
... but then all is not what it seemed:
Summer 2012 may prove to be more tempting:
There are also some tempting services out there which I may use in the future
Anyway I'm sticking with the old phone. I'm no longer under contract, and I will get 50% off my old plan by changing to a 30 day SIM only contract with T-Mobile UK. No brainer. RIM still has me on their network (when it is a case between cheaper/better network vs better gadget, the network will always win in my book).
It seems with all these "choices" available, there really is no good consumer choice right now if you plan to spend time outside your own country. I also note after spending some time in the USA recently, the choice is even worse. Most phones won't even allow a SIM!
