    Now, THAT is a bit of decent kit, at least looking at the specs, and it IS
    available in the US, even tho' the Nokia page says not.

    http://www.nokiausa.com/phones/6820#phone_features

    Seems to have all the beef without the fat...

    POLYphonic rings, camera, color, Triband, GPRS, apps, Java, WAP ("Mobile
    Internet"), speakerphone, voice commands, a full folding keyboard...

    May have to check this out.

    Cheers, Andy

    I did a quick comparison of the spec sheets:

    The 6820 apparently has:
    + Voice recorder for 1.5 minutes vice 2 minutes
    + No wallet, calculator, alarm clock or stopwatch
    + 850mAh vice 1100 mAh battery
    + Digital Talk Time up to 3 hourse vice 5 hours
    + Digital Standby Time up to 12 days vice 14 days.
    + POLYphonic ring tones vice single
    + Wireless headset

    So definitely a plus. The missing alarm clock and stopwatch may be in the
    digital clock screen saver.

    Cheers, Andy
    and of course the camera, colour, keyboard,

    Quite useless then, 6230 has a MMC so can record for hours

    Thanks for slogging through the comparison!

    It definitely looks interesting, but I unless I'm reading your
    post the wrong way, those specs look like a lot of decreases in the
    things that really matter to business users -- standby/talk time, ring
    tones, voice recorder time -- rather than pluses.

    So that sort of leaves us with the other (after-the-sig) features, and
    for those....I don't know.

    I think most business users will never view a full keyboard on a phone
    as a "must have" -- we don't text much, and if we have need to input
    PDA stuff, we'll probably use a full-featured PDA rather than a
    stripped-down version on the phone handset.

    It's the same for the camera. I use a digital camera for work (site
    photos, to remind me what I've seen when I get back to the office). I
    sometimes need to put these in reports, though, so until phone cameras
    can give me, say, 2 or 3 megapixels, I don't think I'd give up my
    point-and-shoot digital camera in favour of a camera phone.

    Cool bit of technology, though...

    Same as most other phones then?

    The folding keyboard is ****e, it's un-natural and to use it properly
    you have to either hold with both hands or put it on a flat surface.

    Nokia's 7610 already has a 1 megapixel camera, so I'm sure 2-3 megapixel
    camera-phones will be seen shortly.

    Correct. I was being pleased only because it has the same set of things I
    want, albeit at slightly lover levels... I haven't found any other (Nokia)
    that has all of this.

    Good points; if you're really serious about those things you'll prolly do it
    with something else, but for it not to be a totally useless toy it needs
    this list for me... :-)

    Um, what other phones have the whole list? I've looked at a bunch of Nokias
    and not found one that has it all... Maybe I'm not looking in the right
    place.

    Well, if they allowed camera phones, the kids could take photographs
    of the pedophile.

    Quite a few. With Nokia the 7250i for a start, and the majority of
    phones released after this date. Even the new entry-level Siemens phones
    will have all of those features.

    I know, my first 3 phones were Motorola. I still prefer Motorola.

    All I am after is a phone with features /SIMILAR/ to the 6310i, is quad
    band and has no camera. In the era of global business travel (and
    business paranoia about cameras on-site) you'd expect to be able to find
    one easily.

    The 6310i does not have quad band. 900/1800/1900 is all it has.
