I currently have a Nokia N80 and my contract runs out this month so that means I can get a new one.
I want to get one that can browse the internet and pretty much everything a phone should be able to do these days. So I want a 'smart' phone.

Sadly the android based G1 phone isn't available here and I am not sure when the Nokia 5800 comes out here.
So it is either a Blackberry Bold or iPhone3G.

Or I wait for a while and see what else comes out, or for a price drop since nothing out there is really worth it right now.

I guess this is me giving you the low down of my situation.

I prob would have gone the Android based one if it was here.
So it will most likely be the iPhone or I wait.

You want my N80? Its from 2006.
I might sell it on ebay or give it to one of my sisters. Or keep it.

I was going to sell my iPod since the iPhone has the capability but I think it will be a drain on the battery.
So I will have to keep the iPod since I use music players a lot.

Looks like either a 16GB white iPhone, Nokia 5800, Storm or Bold, or a GI android.

Do I need a new phone? Probably not right now since the N80 offers everything I would NEED a phone to do.

I will only save $400 a year if I don't go on the iPhone (comparing my plans).
But if I do go on the iPhone, I get 'web 2.0', and an iPhone.
So it balances out.

In conclusion, we need better batteries, faster phones, faster internet, more storage, stronger phones.

you live in the United States... if it cost 20$ to send a jar of Vegemite I don't think it would be worth sending you my old computers, phones, mp3 players and cameras.

I think I ended up with the N80 for a whole extra year lol.
I'm looking at it now, I use it to keep my window open. What a brick.
