The Waiting Game.....times 2

It feels like all I've been doing for the past 2 weeks has been refreshing my Google search of the Verizon Galaxy Tab 7.7. I do have an action plan- if it ever comes out, I plan to get the Tab 7.7 in conjunction with the shared data plan.
On the phone front, I have high hopes for MWC. I went to Verizon to get a hands on with the Razr Maxx and it is just too large for my comfort. I also really like the keyboard and I am not at all willing to give that up. If there is a Droid Pro Maxx announced I'll be in seventh heaven!

Sirius-ly Surprising

I was surprised to find my husband rocking Sirius radio in his Jeep the other day. I had bought him a radio and a 6-month subscription about 7 years ago but hadn't given it much thought since then. It seems that somewhere along the line, his little first-generation hardware has still kept the signal even though we haven't had an active account all this time. I guess sometimes there are perks to be an early adopter. And quite frankly, Sirius already got a couple of bucks from us- we lost a pretty penny on their stock back in the day!

Happy New Year!

Yay for 2012! So far, it's shaping up to be an awesome year! I've been overwhelmed by work lately as I led a hefty software transition- fortunately it went splendidly, and it seems that my life may soon return to the pace it was at 5 months go.

On the tech front I have had some minor flirtations with the Acer Iconia A100 and more recently with the Galaxy Tab 7+. I liked the Tab, but in the end I decided to wait for Verizon to release the 7.7 model to see if that is right for me. I really hope so- the non-functioning StylishGirl app is really bothering me more than I thought it would. I'm also convinced that my Evo View is slightly too heavy for my wrist....I know- tech girl problems.
As far as a phone, I really need a QWERTYBar to be released. I was surprised that nothing in that design came out of CES this year! Just more slabs yet again. So, I'm still in the market for a phone- I've had the same phone for a 14 months!! Not that I don't love my Droid Pro, but it has now slowed to a virtual crawl.
I'm excited to see what this year brings!
