Well. A Luddite no more. I finally gave up my motorola v235 and bought myself one of these new samsungs. i am having an interesting time learning about the applications and functions etc--there is a lot to learn. but i am becoming a lot more comfortable with it. (I have had it for a couple of weeks now.) I didn't know what Android was until I started looking at a replacement phone/smartphone/not iPhone product. I won't become a programmer but I do like that if I did want to try and do a little something for myself, I could.
