Well, I had been intending to talk Vodafone UK into upgrading me from my beloved-but-battered Nokia N95 8GB to the long-coveted Nokia N97. But I’ve just read a bunch of reviews, including one by the sainted Stephen Fry, and they’re all awful. It’s a resistive touchscreen that comes with a stylus? If I want one of those I can necromantise the old Handspring Visor with phone module that I have mouldering in a drawer somewhere. And that hideous, unfunctional-looking keyboard? I am very disappointed.
The iPhone 3GS is of no real use to me: I’m neither an Apple user nor an iTunes user. I’ve fiddled with a G1, and the build quality felt a bit flimsy to me (I’m used to Nokias, remember, which are sawn out of Finnish girders). The Pre isn’t going to get her fore some while, and, as an ill-used old Treo user, I’m kind of cautious about any new Palm phone anyway.
Any recommendations for a clever new phone?
