I finally did it. Thanks to my Christmas money! This is my new Samsung Ace. I have been lusting after a PDA phone for quite a while now. Part of the reason is that I would like to be able to synch my Outlook calendar to my planner I keep with me. Part of the reason is that I would like to be able to google anything at a moments notice. Mostly, it is because I am more than slightly addicted to my email and I would like to be able to check my email anytime anywhere. At work we cannot check personal email (it is blocked). Sometimes I have things to do right after work, but I don't like to go somewhere right from work, because that means I can't check my email until I get home that night. And that is just unacceptable. Honestly, it makes me a bit anxious to not check my email for that long! =) It is not like I am so uber important....but I do use email as my main form of communication. There were two in the store (in my price range) that I liked. One was a Blackberry and the other was this one. I chose this one because it uses a Windows Operating System and will work better for my purposes. So this is another Christmas present! I have had it for 2 days and I love it already!
