I had a Nokia 7650. Awesome, but slow.
I had a Nokia 3230. Terrible, but reasonably fast. I mean, after a half-dozen firmware upgrades and repairs, the thing would crash on an incoming call, and I had to pull the battery to stop it vibrating-alert-ing itself to death.
Then the Siemens S65. Ahh, Teutonic understated simplicity. Great phone! Shame about their Bluetooth handsfree, which now won’t turn on. It just “bleep!”s feebly at me.
Then I said I wanted an iPhone on launch day. I still have the option open to me to get one, via Cingular International.
But I got a Nokia N95 instead.
For me, it’s the spiritual successor to the 7650. With speed, maturity of applications, real actual functionality and it’s an indispensable part of my working day.
To flesh out the bundled apps, I’d tip you get Fring, the GMail application and Salling Clicker.
…anyone know how to get it to pair with Address Book on Mac OS X, for dialing and sending of SMS? The Nokia iSync plugins allow me to sync perfectly, I just can’t “mate” with Address Book.
