Earlier this summer I wrote a brief defense of my Blackberry. A couple of days ago I upgraded from it to a Samsung Replenish, an Android device with a full keyboard. This post is not a full review of the device, but I will say I really like it.
The Replenish uses Android, as I mentioned above. This has opened up the application floodgate for me. My favorites so far are the Kindle app and the ones for listening to NPR and Pandora. I have a nice collection of books (all free, so far) from Amazon on my device and am able to listen to news and music on my way to work. Very nice.
As a now-former Blackberry user one of the draws to this device was its format. It looks like a slightly stretched Blackberry. It’s just as well that I prefer using a keyboard, because the virtual keyboard on this device is just a bit too small for my adult man fingers.
A more complete review may eventually be forthcoming. For now, enjoy this video review of the Replenish from cnet:
