Default Re: What's a phone better than the Iphone?

i got one of these funny phones.
20€ a month, i get the usual GSM quadband plus Wifi Voip to make FREE unlimited landline calls to 50 countires or so.
It has bluetooth,a browser, i can watch about 30 TV channels via wifi (ok, not the greatest res. but cool to catch up on the news etc in the Metro) and comes with a 1gig card and headset.
It's far from perfect, but i am very happy with it.The built-in WiFi, i just couldn't live without it now....

The Nokia N95 is hot.

My friend bought some Motorola phone off the internet that uses a Linux based OS. Apparently there's a mod for it to use the iPhone interface.

If you read that Wired article I posted, someone made a iPhone skin/theme that works with any Windows Mobile 5 smartphone.

Yeah, the iphone and windows mobile, is just like Windows vs Mac. But that N95 looks nice, by the time I get a new phone in september, they will proly have an N97 out or something.

I like the N95's features, I just don't like the overall phone design. Looks too bulky compared to Blackberry's elegant and rounded design.

The N95 is crazy expensive. It's $680 at Tigerdirect:

The N80, N73, and E65 are similar phones, but much less expensive.

Most likely. Unlocked phones are always expensive compared to ones that are given along with a contract.
