jenerio, 01 Feb 2009Can you please elaborate why touch screens are not practical. i hate keypads actually u kip on... moreTouchscreens were NEVER practical.
Example: Someone is calling you in the middle of a meeting. You cannot talk at the moment. With a regular phone, you can reach in your pocket and press a button (without looking) that you can actually feel, to turn it off. With a touchscreen phone, you need to take it out and actually find the button that will turn the phone off.
Touchscreens attract dirt, smudges, fingerprints that are annoying. You have to constantly wipe the screen to keep it clean.
Keypad phones are much easier to keep clean.
And they offer a much better tactile experience.
The only reason tochscreen phones have gotten so popular is due to the hype the worthless iphone caused (and this is mostly in the US).
In many countries, people STILL prefer keypad phones. They are much more simple to use. It is a different experience using a phone with buttons you can actually feel.
Anyway, this phone is great. Why do you need Wi-fi? I can see the convenience, but is it really comfortable to browse the internet on such a small screen?
Cell phones were originally intended for making phone calls. If you want to use the internet, use a computer.
DJ, 02 Feb 2009How can u say that the phone is not yet released in the market.that's because the 6300 was a success and since this is a sucessor of the 6300, i bet it will be a success too.
where're the blue sms/signal lights as in the 6300?
very easy in practice..or am I wrong???
Can't see why they wait till Q3.. First of all: I want one now, and secondly, we need new phones like this one on the market.
Russell, 02 Feb 2009This phone will be a success like 6300. I can bet. How can u say that the phone is not yet released in the market.
I agee touchscreens arnt practical esp if u r a heavy user.
Nokia knonws this, and thats y their 1st 8 megapixel fone due in 2 weeks isnt expected to be touchscreen
for me, I disdain touchscreen phones.. though they seems to be the "in-thing" nowadays BUT.. there's no better tactile experience than to have tactile experience on it. I'm sure there are million of users who would agree with me on this.
In some touchscreen phones, once you cracked the screen, there's no way ever you can use the entire phone itself.. the basic core functions are in the screen.. once its cracked, phone's good as dead already. Not as much as with a keypad, that though the screen is cracked, as long as you can still see some words in it, you can still make calls and perhaps do some texting on it.

to each his own though, if a touch screen works for you, then great.
