Ordering the Iphone tomorrow
I am a Blackberry user of 2 years that is ordering the Iphone tomorrow. My son has had his ITouch for 2 weeks and it was enough to put me over the edge, as I am a big browser and there is no comparison of Safari and anything BB (or anyone else) can throw out there.
I am not a doctor or emergency worker, so the 15 minute fetch is not a killer versus push emails on my blackberry. I would like to use Gmail on a Gmail app, and not in the native email account (I like the look and navigation of it). I also am addicted to my Google reader subscriptions, how best do I set that up?
I have seen some pretty cool I Phone covers and holsters, I want something to protect the phone and that can holster....is that possible.
Any advice on anything else is appreciated...thanks much.

For Google Reader, look into Doppler. It is the best one I have used so far. Only issue is offline browsing of images. No standalone app has nailed that one just quite yet. Also, the webapp version is very solid if you have an active internet connection.

Thanks for the thought on YMail.....I will do that for my Gmail. I am right that unless you do mobile me (or something similar) my exchange account will be fetching every 15 minutes?
