    Right now I'm using an unlocked Treo 650 and have had it for about 4 years. I am updating to newer technology and I'm thinking of getting the Nokia N95 8gb, the Sony Ericsson P1i, the Sony Ericsson c902 (a bit different than the other 2 phones), or the Samsung innov8 . Since they are quite expensive, I want to try to get opinions before I leap into this purchase. Have you used any of these phones?


    Do you have another phone to suggest that you've actually seen or used? I've had a Nokia in the past and remembered it as being a good phone.

    Ideally, I'd like a quad band smartphone that has a touchscreen, voice dialing, large display, vibrate, good battery life, and good memory. If it has a high mega pixel camera (5 or above), that would be a definite plus, but not a deal breaker.

    I do not need to send data (other than email) and am not really into IM'ing. I do not want a Blackberry, as I do not want to incur the additional charge each month associated with this brand.

    I do not want Microsoft OS and I will be syncing to a Mac.

    One of the places I'm considering is techforless.com and I've read some good reviews of the place. Has anyone shopped there??

    Thanks for your help.

    I have a Nokia N95 8gb and it has always worked great for me. I recommend it, but then, I like to IM and have put a tonne of software on it.

    I would also recommend checking out the Nokia E71. I had a E61 for years and loved it. Got a chance to play with the 71 for a few days in the UK, great phone.

    Thanks for your suggestion. I looked at this phone, but I felt the keys were too cramped for me to use easily. I didn't really play with the keyboard though, just a quick look. I will definitely look again, since you've actually used this model.

    The N95 is a good phone. It is very easy to use.

    Re: Can you help me choose a new phone? Please

    Thanks for your reply. I almost got the N95 yesterday (just wish the price would come down a bit) when I read about the New N97. It seems to have everything I wanted in a new phone...a touchpad, a full querty keyboard, and the other assorted goodies that the N95 has. Now I'm trying to decide if I should wait until that's released in the US and whether or not the price will be anywhere near my budget. Perhaps that will need to be relegated to the 'phone after next' place...*sigh*

    Yea but at a starting price of 500 Euros and $700.00 USD, and at a much larger size than the iPhone 3G, you might want to wait out and see what Motorola is planning on revealing. Motorola has announced a new Android OS phone in the making similar to the HTC G1. It's going to be more affordable- probably much better designed and hopefully smaller than the Nokia N97. Very likely to be debuting in June 2009.

    I may just wait until the new Android phone ships from Australia. I tried to post the link, but don't have enough posts to be able to do so. If you are interested, go to apcmag.com and search for the story about the 1st Australian Android phone.

    Looks cool and is more reasonably priced. It has a smaller display, but I think I could get used to that. No decisions until it's been evaluated, though.
