I have been looking at getting a "smart" phone for some time now. i have been holding off because i have been able to access my home comp. from work via logmein.com. well, my work finally blocked the site so i can no longer use that to access gmail, facebook, legit reviews, etc. so now i would like to get something that i can view all that stuff on the go.
My usages: I would be a pretty 'typical' user. email, texting (about 600 per month), web browsing, music listening, check sports scores, gps/maps, maybe some video watching. one thing i would like to be able to do is download a file (pdf) and be able to upload to website/email it all from the phone. reason being, i sell tickets on stubhub and send them via PDF. if i could do that on the phone, it would be really nice.
I don't talk on the phone much at all - averaging 250 minutes/month.
I have been looking at the palm pre as an option. i like the full keyboard part of it a lot. I have never used one in person so i dont really know how well it does. a couple buddies have an iphone so i know how that works.
plans wise, it looks like sprint would be cheaper.

iPhone Text Messaging 1500 $15.00

What you guys think? would i be better off going for a cheaper blackberry? is there something else i am missing?
