What is the way go to?

As a newly self appointed MD (I'll never get used to it ), I can no longer rely on my old LG phone on Pay As You Go contract to keep in touch with my clients.

I like the iPhone, but I don't need fancy. I don't know the others at all. I used to have an old Blackberry ages ago but at the time it only did pushed emails.

What will matter to me:
- getting my emails anywhere at anytime.
- browsing the net with a browser/display as close to a desktop as possible.
- syncing my Agenda with Google Calendar.
- developping apps as I need them.
- and making phone calls

So, iPhone or is there another one out there doing the job?

You need to go to Specs-Save & then look at the offers

My contract is up soon and am in the same hunt. Have a look at Desmo Dave (nee Benelli Dave)'s phone tomorrow night. He has a Blackberry Storm which is apparently quite smart.

Also the new Nokia N97 touchscreen one is out in March....

Well the big nono with the Blackberry is that it does not do Wifi. Whether I'll be at home or at clients, I will most of the time have a free Wifi network available to use.

Thanks for the N97 hint Paul, will google for it and might wait a few weeks more if it does what I need it to do

I had the iphone for 4 months and just got a Nokia E51 for work.

iphone is good, very good, as a complete package I can't fault it.

The E51 is very compact, will see how it goes in use. Easy sync and set up so far.
