    Personally i prefer the G1 because of its ties to google and the fact that it has an actual keyboard. I had an iphone and with my huge fingers it was almost impossible for me to type. Plus the fact that it has the Amazon music service instead of a DRM’d music seervice won me over.

    I prefer the Blackberry storm for many reasons:

    Full touch interface
    Same email client that is the core of blackberries success
    3g Network
    Use as a modem for laptops and other devices
    3.2 megapixel camera
    and its clickable screen which makes selection alot easier and more interactive.

    Hands down the blackberry storm is the best phone for me

    I prefer the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, because the price, the specs, and the structure are great.
    The iPhone is a pretty device, but is not enough to compare with these to phones. So, I really like the great Nokia 5800.

    It is really a tough call. I am a tmobile customer and i have the mda right now by htc and it has been great for 3 years, so it’s kind of hard not choosing another phone by htc. the storm just looks sooooo good, but I really dont know how it will operate…just have to wait and see, right now it is the g1 but the storm has not lost yet

  5. My choice is the most capable of the lot, Nokia 5800:
    GPS navigation, wi-fi, AT&T 3g compatible, unlocked, carl zeiss lens, autofocus, multi-tasking. Might possibly wait for the soon to be announced n-series touch device.

    decided against iphone: no GPS navigation, no 3rd party multi-tasking, no copy/paste

    decided against G1: no GPS nav, no standard headphone out, no video recording capability, T-mobile 3g only.

  6. 1) Size
    The iphone is bigger in size and uneasy for one hand grip. Nokia 5800 is designed to fit well into your hands. Being smaller in width, its easy to operate single handedly.

    Nokia 5800 size: 111 X 51.7 X 15.5 mm

    20) Experience
    Nokia: Ages of experience, hundreds of success stories and dozens of smart handsets in current portfolio. Nokia has about 40% market share with the No.1 spot with no close competitors. Certainly the king when it comes to brand value, service and experience.
    Apple: First phone ever launched by Apple is Iphone, no prior experience in the telecom market. It’s a novice in the market with a very less market share despite having millions of Iphone sold.
