    I'm looking for a device for my wife to replace her 700p. She likes the form factor of the Q9 but the "toys" of the Mogul. Currently she's using an LG Rumor (our spare/emergency phone) until Assurion replaces her 700p due to a damage from a "frustration-induced episode" with her 700p..a reoccurring theme....so she's come accustomed to a slider.

    Here's her requirements...

    • Must be easy to type on...she does quite a few text messages..like 200 to 300 /mo. Types lightning fast too (smokes me in video games..she's a bad-a$$ button masher)
    • Threaded messaging is a MUST...this is #1
    • Large screen helpful...portrait/landscape feature is porb something she'll like
    • dedicated hard button to call-up text messaging..or programmable quick keys/hot keys/shortcuts to specific contacts..ala speed dial
    • touch-screen lock-out while on phone call..or guarantee that she won't hang-up a call with her cheek
    • bullet-proof BT for headset use
    • BT dialing
    • good speaker phone
    • good camera and video capabilities
    • battery life on-par with Treo 700p

    Just to note...non-factor items.
    • touch screen...can live with or without it
    • Probably never use WiFi..
    • Not a big web browser at all...maybe to google-local something or google maps on few occasions
    • Listening to MP3...got a Nano already
    • No Push email ..or any email on the phone...for now

    So what to do??? I'm for sure getting a Touch. Right now we both have Treo's and one universal recharger in our cars and around the home is a major plus....just hate to have multiple wall warts.
