Default Re: BlackBerry Torch VS Nokia E72, features, usability, and functionality

I have a Nokia N900 maemo 5 and the email is by far the weakest link. I have waited a year for them to address this - nothing. I can't even get HTML for exchange. Pretty shocking for a phone that cost me $700. I do think Nokia's setup for Outlook is very good though (I prefer PC Suite, which they are no longer supporting, over Ovi Suite.) Unless you have a 64 bit computer (buggy) or 64 bit Office (not compatible yet.)

February 11 Nokia is going to announce something. Speculation is they are going to do away with Symbian and MeeGo (possibly the successor to maemo.) They may go with Windows Phone 7 or Droid. If they do that would be stunning! I like the linux based platform - I have learned a lot from meamo - it doesn't treat you like you are an idiot. I hope they don't do this - the more OS's to choose from out there the better for the user.

It will be interesting to see what they announce...
