    I have been waiting for months for the new Omnia 2 smartphone.
    Now Verizon has the Droid coming out so I am confused.
    Is the Android phone a good contact manager phone? I need it to sync with Outlook.
    Can I download my Itunes music into it?

    Welcome to the AF forums and enjoy your visits !! :cool:
    phone
    depends on what level of contact management you are looking for ... Contacts Sync'd from the to the Cloud of a gmail account and from the Cloud to the phone almost instantly is a great feature ..

    Phone Contacts, Calendar,and Gmail Syncing in real time is the foundation of a Google-Android Platform ...

    I am sure that Outlook sync is available for most android platforms .... but not being an outlook user I cant say how good it is from personal experience

    I think its to early to tell but so far it is a very nice device. things it is missing.
    Push email support for 'any' email.
    Sort contacts by company.
    No real speed dial. come-on. it super simple to dial via dialpad number.
    Im sync'ing ACT via companionlink/google and i cannot have special fields.I cannot seem to sort by groups as all contacts are in one group from the sync.
    it takes more pushes to use as a phone then 'a phone'. no dedicated send/end.
    No programable key for voice command.
    No memo sync with your contact manager. pain in the ass there. I went to an app gdocs to have a memo pad with a back up.
    Need to find a 3rd party app for secure notes.

    so far thats about it for the bad. i didn't talk about what it can do btw.
    It is a great device with a wonderful screen.
    Hope that helps
