I have an android cell phone, and love it. I have it as a phone, and 
address book, and as a book reader [adliko FTW] and an alarm function 
that kicks arse - I take meds at specific intervals, and I have it set 
so it alarms for each med time every day. It also is dead easy to set 
additional alarms for anything on the fly, and has a great calendar 
function to track appointments  [and I can set multiple alarms for each 
appointment to prod me to get wherever in time =) ] I like the slide 
open keyboard so i dont have to muck with the touchscreen keyboard. I 
also have a great little leather case that protects it nicely.
