Yesterday, Eric ditched his Palm Treo 650 for a Nokia E62.
I haven’t played with it much, but from what I have it’s a nice little device.
Does that say “I want to look like a Blackberry (or Motorola Q)” or what? The joystick is a little weird, and I don’t have a clue about getting around the Symbian Smartphone interface. The screen is gorgeous and bright (especially compared to my Cingular 8125).
I would say that I could stack 2 or 3 of his E62s to make one of my 8125. I never thought the 8125 was bulky, but compared to Eric’s thin, little Nokia mine is a heavy brick. Yes, I have new gadget envy. I’ll get over it. I can’t upgrade my phone until August 2007.
I like my slide-out keyboard in theory, but when I’m on the go getting to it is easier said than done. Most of the time, I’ll just write rather than type. And yes, he can sync it to his iBook. His phone is was much less expensive than mine, but mine does WiFi and his doesn’t. He also doesn’t have a camera, which I would consider a selling point. I hardly use mine, and I run the risk of not being able to go certain places with it.
On the negative, I don’t know if I can deal with the Smartphone interface (Symbian or Windows Mobile). I really like the touch screen. I’d miss it going back to a phone that can only be navigated with buttons and joysticks.
