Motorola DROID and syncing?
      11/30/09 08:30 PM

I need a phone for mainly business use when I'm traveling. Here's what's important to me:

Verizon (only coverage at home)
Receive/send email through a POP server (doesn't have to be constant "push", as long as I can set it to check the POP server occasionally)
Ability to edit Word & Excel docs (both on Google Docs and local attachments and files synced from my laptop)
Ability to sync email folders with Outlook (not Exchange server) -- I really want to be able to copy certain email folders from laptop Outlook to the Droid (and then back again)
Ability to sync Outlook Contacts
Good web browsing

I *think* Droid can do all this with some added apps, but it all seems vague and confusing. I know Android has the whole cloud syncing thing but besides privacy concerns I'd have to redo my whole work structure, so I want to just sync directly with my laptop when I leave and when I come home.

I suppose Blackberry is my other option but I can't find much on syncing options there either.

I don't find much info on these capabilities in reviews so I hope someone can help.
