I really like the moment and am leaning towards it for my upgrade. I am a happy Instinct owner and was waiting for the HD and the moment to come out. I also considered the Hero but I like the physical keyboard as well. My only fear is that I don't use Gmail. I have Yahoo and I used to have Hotmail so I have converted once and not sure I want to convert again. Is gmail a necessity to enjoy not only the Moment but Android OS phones period? I appreciate any responses to the positive or negative. Need help making my decision to wait for the Moment or just go to the HD.
