for me, iphone is not suitable because have no QWERTY keyboard and the data hungry mode.

Nokia is more suitable for me.

Good luck on your iphone.

And please, CPU speed is not always the way to see how good one phone is. It just like in notebook, intel release the CULV processor that mainly optimize on power usage. Nokia can use the processor that have the most efficient power usage ratio compared to competitor because symbian is lighter compared to competitor.

the training might seems easy for you, but let me give you a picture. in my country, indonesia, let say nokia have 3000 outlet throughout whole country. in each outlet they must present at least 1 or 2 person to go into this training. so, nokia might make the training to be 200 person at one time, so they will have 15 training session in 15 cities. that's not a small job.

2. After announcing it, they still need to transport it from the factory to the market.
3. They need to train the store person to be able to answer anything about the phone. They won't train it before announcing it, because it would be leak out, therefore, there's always a void time between announcing it and selling it.

The question now is, when will nokia sell this C3, E5, C6 & N8. I'm having a nightmare everyday and need one of this devices to beat those nightmare. :)

> In reply to Ajinkya @ 2010-05-22 18:56 from uth5 - click to readthe NAND flash is faster when reading un-sequential data. so it's a good memory for storing operating system, sms, apps. For storing data such foto, video, etc the mircroSD kind of memory (or the internal memory) is better.

The benefit of bigger NAND flash means the phone can have a bigger OS, thus having more capability. The S60v5 in Nokia C6 have a NAND flash of 512MB and free space around 240MB, which mean the OS already on 260MB size.

This is something you can't have in Nokia 5800XM or the original N97 because both have 256MB NAND flash. But the N97mini have 512MB NAND flash.

One inside thing: New and upcoming Symbian S60v5 phones like Nokia 5235 Comes with Music and Nokia C6 have 512 MB NAND memory versus old phones like 5800 XpressMusic, 5230/33, 5530 XpressMusic have 256 MB NAND memory. N97 variants being exceptions and have 512 MB NAND.

NAND is a type of flash memory and is classified as non-volatile type of memory. The more is NAND memory, more faster are data erasing, writing, editing and reading capabilities of phone.
