I currently have a Blackberry 8310, my first Smartphone.. for 2 years now. My Contract is near end. I have been interested in Android phones for a while now, with Captivate being one of the most likely to purchase. I have been reading a lot about certain issues like GPS, but that's something i know Samsung will resolve therefore am not too worried about it. My big question concerns email. As you know, Blackberry's email retrieval is very prompt, especially if you have GMAIL. I dont know the terminology, but as soon as GMAIL itself receives/sends an email, you immediately receive it on the handset. LIke receiving a sms text as soon as it is sent and goes through the system. I am foreign to any other format/OS, so I've been reading up and I notice a lot of people mention the setting "email/gmail" to retrieve email at a certain time interval. I live by my emails you could say.. and this bugs me, Even if this is set at every minute, it will drain your battery to death. Is Blackberry the only phone that has direct/instant email delivery? instead of "push" or "retrieval"? Or is there an App that will accommodate what I am mentioning? I have an I-touch, and I know that it does the same thing.. you have to set the Push interval to retrieve emails. This could be the dealbreaker for me... despite the other wonderful things that Android has to offer, my "real life" is ruled by this.. and if BBerry is the only phone to offer this.. I may just stick to it. No offense towards Android or its users of course, I still think it owns everything else out there on every other aspect. please tell me there is a way of accommodating this in Android phones. Thanks!
