Need a Few Good Cellphone Recommendations
So I'm looking for a new cell phone.
My fantastic Nokia 8290 (my buddy Jeremy calls it "the Unix of cell phones") is over three years old, the buttons are wearing out, and the screen is broken. More importantly, new phones can do things that my Nokia can't. The phones I'm looking at call all take and upload pictures, email, IM, surf the web, and post to blogs. Mobile services are becoming more important at ESPN, too. It's about time that I jumped on the mobile data services train before it pulls out of the station.
So after dragging Geneve to a Cingular store this weekend to check out the beautiful Motorola Razr v3, and deciding that the $600 price tag wasn't worth it, I went looking for alternatives. Robert Scoble loves his Audiovox SMT 5600, and Amazon reviewers concur (there's the power of word of mouth again).
It's the front runner right now based on features and size, for sure, but I need to go and play with it at a brick and mortar store. Even then, I won't be able to gauge whether the UI will be bothersome on a day-to-day basis, as Matt Linderman points out.
Do you know of any other cellphones that I should check out?
