So... I'm at the end of my contract and looking at a replacement for my N95 8GB which is a decent phone but I reckon that the newer ones are better.
My choice is between an N97 or an iPhone 3G(not the new S version - I don't reckon it's got any real advantages for me)
My thoughts are:
Pros: I like Nokias, it runs multiple apps at the same time (eg I often run email, browsers and sportstracker at the same time), it's got a proper keyboard, plays wma music files (which saves me converting loads of my music), has Nokia Sportstracker, which I've found great
Cons: touch screen/UI won't be as good as the iPhone, fewer apps
Unsures: not sure if it does cut and paste
Pros: Brilliant UI, loads of apps, great browsing
Cons: Can't run more than one app at a time, Camera isn't great, need to run iTunes, won't play wma music, concerned that my big hands/fingers may find the keyboard tricky, look like a bit of a hipster
Unsure: Is there any reason that the 3G S is actually an advantage - from using iPhones in the past, they seem fast enough to me and 16Gb would be enough memory. The compass is a nice to have but not really essential. I guess a 3.2Mb camera might be a good improvement though.
So, any help in deciding between the two appreciated though I'm not interested in out-and-out Apple-evangelism or Apple-bashing (is that a euphemism?)
