When Two Phones Are Better
As Mary Alice Stephenson bounces between her two smartphones, sending emails with one and tweeting photos with the other, it often leads her to wonder: “Why can’t the iPhone and the BlackBerry have a baby?”
Ms. Stephenson, a style and fashion consultant in New York, has tried using each phone alone. She liked the ease of typing on the BlackBerry’s keyboard, and she also liked the photo-sharing tools on the all touch-screen iPhone.
A few months ago, she ditched her BlackBerry in favor of the iPhone but quickly became frustrated with the touch-screen keyboard and its autocorrect function. So, despite the hassle, she now always carries both.
