I'll agree that the smartphone doesn't really "help" much at all with the business, other than being a phone. But, the weather radar and ability to see warnings and things is really helpful when you live in Kansas! I can track the rain and storms while I'm on the mower even. Having the smartphone is nice for tunes as well, better than an ipod because I can plug into pandora and use my ear plug headphones to make the days go by much easier. I'm still hanging onto my blackberry as well. I just can't get into the touch screens, especially for us that usually have dirty hands. Plus they don't generally have belt clips and are much more fragile than the blackberrys.
