I am using Nokia phones since the beginning. I think I should have given up after 9300 disaster. I've given a second chance with E65. However, It isn't working anymore...

The last straw is the decision of Commontime to discontinue mSuite client functionality on Symbian S60 3rd edition. mSuite will support only Mail for Exchange clients on these platforms. And I must say that Mail for Exchange really sucks!

I just hope IBM to be determined to continue Traveler support for Nokia.

Once upon a time, Nokia was the biggest mobile phone brand targeting business needs... You already know the current situation. They are trying to recover their position now.

Though, some of my customers are still happy with their E66, E71 and E72 series. I must admit that Symbian is still good at robustness and phone functionalities unless you are not using any third party application. Its application development environment provides much more opportunities for developers.

But I'm done :)))

Any phone suggestions?

The 9300 is not a communicator, although it looks like one. Nokia doesn't even list it under their communicator section :)

The 9210, 9500 and E90 have a superior keyboard compared to the 9300.

@Henning, it doesn't seem bad. But still, symbian has application limitations. iPhone and Android is way ahead.

@Mika, I could not use its keyboard efficiently.

I liked Samsung Galaxy S 9000. It is a fantastic phone. Unfortunately, there are problems with the Turkish edition. Samsung does not import galaxy. The importer operator (Turkcell) changed some software features. Android market is closed. You need to crack it before using.

iPhone, on the other hand, is too expensive in Turkey, since it targets upper segment customers...

I think HTC seems more appropriate for me. And Android of course.

I think I still prefer Nokia Communicator as real phone, since it has a decent anamorphic widescreen display and real keyboard.

I often don't even need to carry my laptop to meetings, as I can just type on my phone as with the laptop.

For gaming phones I would prefer some HTC or Google Nexus series phone, as they run on Linux, and the ugly Java based Android interface can be bypassed easily with raw C++ and OpenGL code.

The Nokia N8 doesn't seem to be that bad.

Sorry, no recommendation as I still use a Nokia myself. I will keep it for calls and probably use the iPad Gen. 2 for the rest.
