It's tough I agree. I used to work for and for the most part stuck with Nextel for most of the people at PCTorque. Troy is now running the Nokia 9290 and I like the features of the phone, but it's like a big brick. I've been lately using the i85 from Nextel, but need good internet to watch the Sagerforums when I'm away =). I had been looking at:Kyocera 7135Nokia 6800 (too small of LCD)Nokia 9290 (like Troy likes, but it's kind of too bulky to be taking to the movies with you)
So, I went to Verizon to check out the Kyocera and it wasn't able to display sagerforums.com... cross it out!
I then went to Sprint and they showed me theToshiba 2032
It was nice with Windows, but for calling, it had speaker phone or external headset only. It was able to access the sagerforums, but the links to read posts often failed. Plus the links were hard to read.
They then showed me the Samsung i330 which brought up the Sagerforums quickly and clearly with what I felt was an easy to use Palm OS interface. I didn't like that it was exposed (LCD and front buttons), but was willing to settle. The guy said they were sold out of them and didn't think they would get any more in. He said he thought the new Samsung i500
was to replace it which they were expecting any day.
So, right now I have my name on a list for the i500 and am looking up whatever info I can find.
I have been using the Nextel M1100 for wireless internet through a Sager laptop which is just too big for work in tight places such as in a store or at the movies.
So, as of right now the best phone LCD I've seen for websurfing is the Nokia 9290 because of how wide the LCD is. The Windows CE systems have some nice application features, but may be buggy with limitations. It has got to be something I can throw in my pocket and surf the web.
