    OK, I have had it with WinMo! For everything it has going for it there are more things wrong with it. I use the phone for my business, so outlook, word & excel are important, and you can't beat WinMo for that; I am, however, getting tired of the constant lock-ups and glitches and I don't want to leave Sprint (at least not yet, they are pushing it though), so it looks like a Hero or Moment are in my future. Or should I wait for the next generation of devices that are supposed to hit in 1st or 2nd quarter 2010?

    I like flashy interfaces, but I am technically savvy, so a stripped down Android would be no problem for me, I could install whatever interface I want as they come available. My real question is this: Which set of problems do I want to face, and can I do without a slider since my fingers are huge ( I am 6'5").

    I know I will get as many differing opinions as there are people that answer, so I am just looking for a little guidance or a gentle nudge one way or the other.

    Thanks:D

    Go to a Sprint store and check both of them out.
    Stereotyping and based on your size, I think you will like the Moment.
    It has a bigger display and a physical and virtual keyboard.
    The moment has more horsepower, but 22mb less of ram.
    The hero has 288mb of ram, a 5 MP cam, but no flash and it has Sense UI.

    OK, I checked out both phones and now I am more confused than ever. Love features of both, hate some of both.

    The lag in switching to landscape on the Hero was aggravatingly long, both phones had problems recognizing when I hit an onscreen button, the lack of multi-touch gestures on the Moment is a big negative.

    I had less problems with the Hero's onscreen keyboard than I thought I would, and the offset on the Moment keyboard is a little confusing but could easily be gotten used to.

    I definitely like the trackball better as well.

    Now for the kicker; went into the Verizon store two doors down and have to say the Droid is one well built phone! But the lack of multi-touch is puzzling since I thought that was supposed to be one of the features of 2.0.

    Oh well, guess it's time to flip a coin...
