The most advanced phone in the world?

I known this place is focused on Windows Phone Edition devices, but I thought people might be interested to have a look at This Wee Beastie. It's a Nokia phone that is significantly smaller than a MiniS but boasts;

WiFi, GPS, A2DP, EDGE, HSDPA, 5MP Camera, TV Out, Slide out keypad, slide out audio controls and plenty more. And remember, a device quite a bit smaller and slimmer than a MiniS.

I always used to be a fan of Symbian. Until MS released WM5 the Symbian OS was light years ahead of Windows Mobile but their hardware always let them down. I eventually moved to MS devices when Symbian took forever to include WiFi. Now, with the exception of touchscreens, they are right back at the top end of the specs; and touchscreen is possible with Series 60 3rd edition. Just depends whether Nokia fancy trying it.

So, it looks like HTC and the others might have some proper competition in the hardware specs and form factor innovation stakes, and that has to be good for all of us!

Seems interesting, but I don't personally like the look of it. Lots of nice specs though.

Agreed very nice specs, but they definitely need a lesson in the style department!

Let's face it, a total lack of design style has never stopped Nokia selling bucket loads of phones before!

Can I just say boo hiss, WM FOREVER!!!!!!

WMobile is a great interface, and I am hardly an MS fanboy !

I find the most advanced pda phone to the 02 exec, but it was a tad heavy for me :)

Im in the process of getting an 02 stealth...which is much more my preferred style and weight !

I'd say the TyTN is the current title holder in my book, wipes the floor with the Exec. There are some seriously interesting phones on the way though.

lolz...TyTN is indeed nice, but definitely the evolution of the universal/exec.

I still dont get those qwerty keybaords....I simply do not use them. I prefer to virtual keybaord on the screen for SMS, quick notes. Anything bigger and requiring alot of keybaord input, I use my laptop(which will soon be replaced by a umpc) If this wasnt an option, id prefer one of those portable keybaords rather than fiddling with tiny qwerty keys...

I used to think like that Astro, until I had the Wizard. Now a qwerty-less device seems stoneage.

I vary myself, if I know it's just an odd note, PI entry or SMS then I'm quite happy using the SIP, but if a lengthy messaging session is needed then it has to be the Exec.

It all depends on the user I guess. My PDAs role is moreso as a phone and lightweight computing stuff(emails on the go etc).

When I need to write, I need to write heaps, eg. reports, lectures etc, Im not going to tinker away on an infernal qwerty the size of my hand(or less) ! Since having tried xp tablet and the touch pack, the onscreen keyboard and handwriting recognition are excellent. Im really looking forward to picking up my asus umpc later this year.

Yeah, again, that's what I used to be like. It only took a couple of weeks of use with the Wizard before I was using the keyboard for everything. I find it loads quicker than the stylus.
