BlackBerry vs. Android

Can someone point me in the direction (and or provide info directly) of where I can get a good quick comparison of the Android OS vs. BlackBerry?

I was all set to go for the BB 9900 (TMobile is my carrier) but was told to rethink that choice and I have to admit the initial sticker price on the device has made me pause. My main interest is the access to email on the go and good sound quality. I am tech savvy but do not desire a steep learning curve. I just learned about the Samsung Galaxy S II coming out for TMobile tomorrow and am now researching that device but am open to other suggestions. If anyone has left BB for Android I would bevery interested in hearing about your experience(and also why you made ...

Where we usually are shopping?

I always shop on ebay to buy less than that in the case of the same quality, but can not buy the cheapest products. Now shopping has become more B2C e-commerce platform, so allow me to find the product were lower, saving us a lot of money, such as the purchase of jewelry gadget I like to go:, I like to go to Amazon to buy books, etc. . And prepare a more adequate comparison sites to ensure that we find a better product, and then help yourself to save more money, I would like to share their own favorite sites!

Purchased products are generally what we are most concerned about?

1 arrival time. If this is not urgent, then we are not within the normal range too concerned about it, if we hurry, we often decide whether to buy.

Disappearing email messages

I just switched from the Android Incredible to the Samsung Android Charge. All email messages are cleared continually during the day. I have turned off Sync'ing and restarted the email application but there is no change. I use as my email provider and I have changed nothing there. Has anyone else had this problem? It has nothing to do with the limit as I cannot keep even one email message from not disappearing. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Keep my G2 or upgrade to the MyTouch 4G Slide???

I want a new TMo Android phone for Christmas. I currently have a G2. My new phone must have a qwerty keyboard. I wanted to upgrade to the MyTouch 4G slide bc of the 8mp camera and front facing camera. But I really wanted to wait altogether because I want a 5 row keyboard. Is it worth the upgrade yes or no?

My little sister had the Moto Cliq and wants the Sidekick 4G. Pros/cons? MyTouch would be the better phone or sidekick for a 19 year old?

Which Android manufacturers have the least trouble with bugs?

I keep reading comments from androiders complaining about their phones crashing and rebooting without warning, etc. This has to be a software issue, eh?

So who consistantly makes an android that is stable and reliable? Do I need to root the thing to get rid of bloat in order to acheive stability? Or do I have to get last year's model to get mature software?
