My contract is up on my 18month old Nokia E71. And I’m still no nearer working out what I’m going to get next. I suppose I don’t have to, but it’s scratched screen and bunged up charger socket (the charger doesn’t positively click in place as it’s got some gunk in there, so I have to make sure it’s pushed in hard or it won’t charge) mean that it’s becoming a pain to live with, but I do like it.
I like it’s small skinny size. It’s pretty tiny really. Thin, I can have it in my pocket and not know it’s there. They keyboard works great, I can one hand it when I’m, well, not when I’m driving of course, but when I’m doing something with my other hand…
So iphone4? Maybe. I was delighted to find out my mother-in-law doesn’t have a 4, she has a 3G. And that friend of my wife’s who’s husband said he’d got her a “2nd hand iphone4″ actually had got her a 3G… not that I’m a snob or anything.
HTC Desire Z was looking good until I saw about “that cursed hinge” and it does look a bit bobbins.
But – I really like the HTC brand now – I think their website is class – http://www.htc.com/uk – and the HTCSense stuff that they do looks brilliant. http://www.htc.com/uk/product/desirez/overview.html
Apple’s iOS thing with lack of real multitasking, battery drain and super-pretty just bugs me. The iPad drives me a bit nuts, unless I’m using it for watching teh telly on in’t bath or something. To use it as a computery thing – no… I can’t skip about… I mean with one hand on my E71 I can check emails coming in whilst web pages are loading, whilst twitter is twittering.
I’ll end up getting an E72 I bet.
