I've had major car issues so haven't been able to afford to buy either. The demo of Mobi Office was great and gave all the functionality I was after. Unfortunately the demo time is up so it won't...

I can't help thinking that they'd be much better if they had a fold out top section to show a reasonable sized solar panel so it can charge itself when out and about making it more useful, and...

I can't see how the "free software" argument is all that relevant when the Symbian license for the device is something like $5. Saving $5 on the production cost won't bring the cost of a smartphone...

Again with point 2 for S60, why have I got the same on the inside screen as the outside on my E90. I get 2 more icons, and boat loads of wasted space.

The MP4 version doesn't seem to work. Tried it in VLC under Linux and Windoze, mplayer, Movie Player, Helix Player, and on my E90 with no success.

When is touchscreen meant to be incorporated into S60. Wouldn't be surprised if they tested the water with another 77x0 styled device, though, 800x400 screen, the angle sensor doobery so it can auto...

Downside to that logic, there isn't another S60 phone like the Communicator, so all the advancements for that are likely to only be for that. I.e. getting the calendar app working as well as the old...

Would be nice for one that fixes all the niggles with the move from S80 with the E90. But seeing as the replacement time seems to be normally 2.5-3 years I'd not expect it soon. :(

I've only got 2GB and it's split between SCUMM VM games and MP3s, but it is surprisingly good and sounds better than my wifes W950i. Dunno what her new W960 will be like, probably better again.

Now I'm thinking it's 50/50 on improvements/steps back. Yeah it has a far far superior screen (and lets face it you can't describe the 9500's as bad), but the keys are annoying and I write ~3000...
