    Benjamin:
    What about MS Office 365 or Google Docs to provide the integrated mail/calendar/contacts applications? Not sure how mobile-friendly Off 365 is. One of my Android app complaints is the copy/paste functionalities. It is always awkward-for me- to grab an email address and add it to contacts or add an email address inside an email or text message.
    The font issue on a large display is an interesting one. In that case the app needs to “act” like a tablet app on the larger screen size.
    Definitely an interesting series of posts — thanks.

      Kevin – Glad you are following the series! I should have pointed it out but this post was just focused on the native experience. I will definitely be covering Office 365 and Google Apps. In regards to copy and paste for Android I agree – but using a keyboard and mouse helps out immensely. If you click and hold the left mouse button it brings up the context menu which allows you to select a word. Additionally, if you click and hold the middle scroll wheel button it is the same as clicking the menu button on the phone. You can then click and hold the middle button and click “c” to copy and then the middle button and “v” to paste. There stil is lots of room for improvement though!
