    Hey, here's the deal. I'm currently on WinMo 6.5 and like it. I'm using a Touch Pro2 on Sprint and I'm pretty happy with it, but the T-Mobile HD2 and the upcoming Sprint Evo both have my interest. Can anyone OBJECTIVELY tell me why I should go with the Evo over the HD2 considering the following issues I have?

    1. I must have voice dialing over BT. I've heard that this doesn't work on Android.
    2. I must have PPTP and IPSEC VPN capability.
    3. To go with the VPN, I must have a good RDP client, preferably with zoom capability.
    4. I'd LIKE to have a check register program to sync with MS Money or Quicken.
    5. I'd like a FREE turn-by-turn navigation program. Tell me why there's so much fuss over Google Maps? I get spoken turn-by-turn directions from Sprint Navigation.
    6. Is there a Bing client for Android? I really like speaking my search into Bing. Is there something like this for Android?
    7. Exchange synchronization is a MUST. Will I get all my e-mail folders, plus contacts and calendar?
    8. I use my TP2 as a wi-fi router for free on the Sprint network. Is this capability available in Android?

    That's about it. These are my requirements. I'm not looking for flames or fanboys, but real, objective answers. Thanks very much.

    Sounds like your in quite the spot.

    First advice, don't jump carriers due to a phone. Tmobiles service is well below par, and while the hd2 is a good device, I wouldn't recommend it due to carrier.

    I too transfered from winmo, I had a touch pro, and a mogul. Sounds to me you'd be better off with winmo. I know both platforms quite well, so my advise to you is to stay with your tp2. For business users, winmo can't be beat. Although android IS rapidly evolving, and there may be some improvements before its launch.

    Good luck.
