    Anyone go from Blackberry to Android?

    How difficult is the learning curve?

    I have been using a blackberry since 2004, thinking of going to Android.

    Any recommendations?
    Just trying to stack up against all the other pins...

    This is the right place to ask many of the experts on here come from BlackBerry and either go to Apple, Windows or Android. I haven't done yet but just keep watching your post and you will get a lot of answers. You may need to go to Google Sync, but Delfim, and Roger, will come in with some recommendations

    I went from a BlackBerry Storm 2 to a Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Best move I ever made! It's not hard to learn to use. I would recommend getting the Samsung Galaxy S3. Quite simply I LOVE ANDROID! ;-)

    Thinking of doing the same thing. Only trouble I hate typing on the screen. Son has a work phone that is android and has a keyboard but I think it is only on sprint. Sprint has bad service in my area

    I feel the learning is curve is not that bad. There definitely is one but its like anything else really. It will take some getting used. To. Does the keyboard matter to you cause other wise there is great variety of android smartphones out there

    The htc one X, Samsung galaxy S 3, The samsung galaxy nexus are the best choices as far as best android phones but it depends on the price range and whether you want a physical keyboard or not

    I came from 2 BlackBerry's (Pearl, then Curve) to Android about 18 months ago. The main reason I made the switch was from a development perspective: I had the opporunity to do some Android development, so I wanted to get my hands on a device before I had to start working with it. Overall, I'm happy with it. The Android system is very well thought out and executed well. The devices are more like small computers than phones...although the BlackBerry was that way too. Internet browsing still isn't perfect with Android, but much better than with BB. The larger screen sizes with Android are much nicer than what I was squinting into with BB. The main things I miss from BB days: the keyboard (18 months later, I still stink at touchscreen), battery life (one quick charge a day was all I needed with the BB, now I plug in whenever I get a chance) and BBM. I didn't think the learning curve was bad at all with Android; I think you'll like it.
