    I currently have a new Sprint Touch Pro 2. With the Windows Mobile ship apparently sinking, I'm thinking of jumping ship to the Android platform. I have 10 days to return my phone for a different model.

    I have good reasons to stay with a Windows Mobile phone.

    1) Must have good Outlook Exchange Server capabilities for work.
    2) I have certain programs on my WM phone that I REALLY like/need. (Coreplayer, Cash Organizer)
    3) How to put this... I'm a PC, not a Mac. I'm not too much into the whole Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, social networking... couldn't really give a hoot about all that.

    Give me some compelling reasons to abandon the WM camp and become a Phandroid.

    To be honest Robb I'm thinking of going back to WM for those exact same issues.

    Exchange will work on some handsets (out of the box) but only if you company doesn't require PIN access (like mine does). Your next option is one of the apps from the market (which aren't free). I just don't think I should have to pay for a feature that my phone has just because it isn't implemented correct for companies that value security.

    Divx doesn't work either.

    There are some things better on Android, like Google Nav (but this only works in the US and I ain't there) and the various barcode readers.

    But that HD2 certainly does look tempting over a Nexus 1.
