I've been on the lookout for a new phone but I didn't really know what I was looking for. I'm pretty happy with my non-smartphone but it dawned on me that what I'm really missing is e-mail and Messenger support with which I could ditch the laptop in many situations.

Drool.

I had a MS Smartphone (Orange/HTC SPV500) for 2 years, and I never programmed a single .NET program for it.

I’ve just ordered Nokia's upcoming N95. I has 5MP Camera (Carl Zeiss, Autofocus, Flash) , 30FPS VGA Video, Stereo FM Radio, GPS (free maps for the entire world), Wi-Fi a/g, Bluetooth 2.0, 3.5G, Edge, USB mini connection, 3,5 mm jack, MP3/AAC/AAC+/eAAC+/WMA player, MicroSD, 240 x 320 pixels screen (2.6 inches).

Only drawback... it has the newest Symbian OS 9.2, S60 rel. 3.1 and not Windows Mobile. So I do not expect it to run WPF/e applications any time soon. It also has no QWERTY keyboard, and I would prefer a MiniSD instead of MicroSD (Max 2GB). But apart form that this phone cannot be matched.

Did I say that is small (99 x 53 x 21 mm/120g), and has a cool 2 way slide design.

It sounds like a very cool phone. Unfortunately the missing QWERTY keyboard is a deal breaker for me. I really only need a phone for communication and I've come to believe that doing anything else than phone calls requires a good keyboard.
