Question upgrade time! but which one to go with?

hi all,

i have 5800 that's served me well for last year, i don't really need an upgrade, but i would like one, since it's that time.

my dilemma:
my 5800 already has software, good software, that i paid good money for.
- quickoffice
- handy calendar
- handy safe
- handy expense
- and joikuspot
replacing this device has never been so difficult

but the entire time i had this phone, i wish that it had a bigger screen and huge memory, mainly for web and media consuming.

my choices are:
the n97
+ bigger screen
+ huge memory
+ qwerty keyboard and t9
- i will lose my software

the ipod touch 32 or 64 gb combo
(this has been part of a 2-box solutions, thanks joikuspot!)
+ bigger screen
+ huge memory
+ competent on-screen keyboard and t9 on the 5800
+ all the bonuses of iphone os and apps store
(this IS relevant since i came from an iphone 3g and it has its advantages that i can't get from nokia at all)
- i lose convergence
(i like using only one pocket for my one device
- and integration
(manually pausing music/movie to answer a phone call or taking a photo and not see it on the bigger screen,)

and lastly, the upcoming iphone (skipping the 3gs) (this will probably get no votes in this forum but what the heck)
+ bigger screen
+ huge memory
+ competent on-screen keyboard
+ all the bonuses of iphone os and apps store
(this IS relevant again, and to make a valid point this time, i've recently switched to a mac, makes syncing a heck of a lot easier and compatible!)
+ i KEEP convergence and integration!
- i lose flash
- i lose my t9 (i love my t9)
- i lose joikuspot!

all of my friends have told me that i can't be satisfied, i am spoiled after having an n95 and an iphone it's nuts!

I'd hold of until the new Symbian comes out and maybe even consider WM7. If I had to buy now and wasn't afraid of spending some dough I'd consider the N900.

With the N97 it wouldn't be a dramatic increase over the 5800 I'm afraid. More memory and real keyboard I suppose. Still stuck with rather rudimentary Symbian.

What about one of those big screen android phones?

Or a dell mini 5? Those look brilliant - 5 inch screen, compact, cheap (if Dell pricing history is anything to go by), great for media, can be used with 3g sim (and as a phone!) or tethered by wi-fi.

You say you've had an iphone previously. You're probably better qualified than many of us to know if you'd like another. If price isn't an issue, I'd be tempted to wait and see what the new version is all about. And compare it with the dell mini 5, which'll appear in a month or two maybe.

Why will you lose your software? I've upgraded phones before, and I've contacted the software vendor, explained what I was doing, and got new licence keys for the new phone.
