What model for WebOS with QWERTY and fast browser
I wonder if this exists and whether anybody can suggest a fit for what i'm after.
I can't use the Blackberry Bold or Motorola Admiral/XPRT keyboards - they are too cramped. I prefer a qwerty keyboard and if there's touchscreen too, great -- but not essential. I want fast browsing and email/texting. I'm kinda daunted by the complexity and unneeded features of Android (for me) and even Windows 7.
My favorite OS as far as simplicity was the simple OS of Palm and WebOS. Another example is the current Sanyo Innuendo OS...whatever that's based on.
I'd be happy to have a non-slider model with a keypad on front, with a reasonably large display, camera and wi-fi.
I'm on SERO with unltd data, and prefer EVDO Rev. A service.
My current BB Curve 9330 is too slow for practical internet use. Unacceptably slow. (Is it just this BB model - a hardware issue maybe??)
I have considered, tried, and ruled out... an HTC Arrive (Windows 7) and a Moto Admiral/Xpert (mainly because of the tedious cramped Blackberry type keyboard that i first experienced on a 9650 Bold and don't get how people find this easy to deal with). Android is not imperative by any means. It's rather overkill for my needs.
Are the newer Blackberrys any faster as far as internet speed/connectivity vs the past generation Curve 9330?
Otherwise is there any newer generation WebOS option available on Sprint that would be 3G (qualify for SERO 40/month) ? I would seriously go back to a flip-phone and get an Ipad for web needs but i don't want to leave SERO and nothing's going to come close to the SERO rate if i wanted to have a separate cel phone for voice, and tablet for data.
Thanks for suggestions,
