“I’m out of contract, and my employer is offering me a company phone of my choice. I’m currently using a BlackBerry Bold 9700 and I handle a lot of e-mails on any given day. What phone would you recommend for someone who needs to send and receive plenty of emails during travel and downtime? I’m not tied to an ecosystem and I don’t care about app libraries or anything else — I just need the best email phone on the market. Please help me!”
