I'm sure this is pushing is a bit, asking the sailing forum about a recomendation for a phone but the truth is that my last phone I selected primaraly because it was waterproof.
The one I have now is an older model of this phone Set Your Location
I am now due to work pressures being squeezed into a smart phone.
I am on Verizon and am thinking of a iphone or a thunderbolt.
This is what I think I got figured out so far:
On the verizon network you can't get a call and stay on the net at the same time on the iphone but you can on the droids.
The thunderbolt is bigger but not necessaraly sharper. Anyone know if it makes a difference.
The thunderbolt has 4g capability but I live in CT which is still 3G.
The thunderbolt is supposed to have poor battery life especially with 4g
From a sailing point of view:
How do the two phone handle charting?
Any other apps that might tip the scale.
What about waterproofing
What about the camera?
I work for a programming company but I doubt if I would buy a Mac so I could develop for the iphone.
The cell phone we carry might just be another sailing tool so what do you think?
