Yes I am. I get a bit obsessed when this happens. Last time I went with a Sony Ericsson W850i on T-Mobile and, while I was happy to have a nice, up-to-date phone with Walkman and fast web-browsing, it was somehow a bit of a disappointment. The buttons aren’t very well spaced and the navigation pad cracked within weeks of opening the box. And it crashes all the time when I’m using Opera Mini. I think I made my mind up too quickly based on looks – although its competitor for my affections, the Nokia 6300 was prettier but less well-featured so it wasn’t entirely a shallow decision.
This time, I’m trying not to make the same mistake. Although, to be fair, my main criteria are "touchscreen and 3G". Now, I know what you’re going to say but I HATE APPLE so forget it. After that the main dfficulty is finding a touchscreen phone which isn’t a bit, you know, girly. The Nokia N95/96s are fugly and expensive. The Samsung Tocco is small and rather lovely but again pricey and might well be for ladies. The LG Viewty seems ok, but not very exciting. The LG Secret even *sounds* feminine, though it seems quite kick-ass, features-wise. The Samsung Omnia is red-hot awesomeness, but it costs a billion pounds.
I don’t know. I’m going to research a bit more, then get the prettiest one.
