Hey guys, I've been a long time follower here and this is my first post. The story is simply this; I'm in the market for a new phone. There are obviously certain features I want my new phone to have. The thing is, even though I live in Hong Kong (and to a certain extent, the US too), I travel a lot. My current situation dictates that I am in the US (specifically, the northeast) for the majority of the year. Currently, I use an unlocked E71 which I bought from Hong Kong. I use T-Mobile in the US. I don't really need a data plan as I use wifi. Really, I use my phone for calling, SMS, Music and light web browsing. The E71 has served me extremely well in those respects. People might say the S60 is dated, however, I have found it to be extremely functional, and it serves my needs extremely well. However, I am now inclined to go touchscreen. This touchscreen phone needs to be GSM. I travel a lot, and CDMA is...well, its CDMA. I switch out my SIM Cards very often, so, CDMA is a huge "no" for me. The phone also needs to have very strong multimedia functionality AND support either T-mobile or AT&T in the US on 3G. Currently, I use T-mobile, but, I'm willing to switch. The phone must also be unlocked. Call me old fashioned, but I like to have a SINGLE device for everything. Currently, my E71 is just that. I don't want to have a different phone for the US and a different one for Hong Kong and a different one for Australia. Now, I have been loyal to Nokia for many, many years. The E71 has given me no reason not to stay loyal. However, I do use Google's services (Gmail, Google Calander) and currently, they sync extremely well to my E71. However, obviously Android would be better for Google and its services. Hence, my dilemma. The phones that I am going to pick between to replace my trusty E71 (which has been with me ever since it hit the stores) are the HTC Desire, the Nexus One and of course, the Nokia N8. The Desire takes a huge step back because it only comes with a 900/2100 3G radio. This is the ONLY reason (atleast for me) to opt for the Nexus One in this regard. The Nexus one is tri-band 3G with either T-mobile support (1700/2100 AWS + 2100) or AT&T support (850/1900+2100). Most countries I am in (places in Europe, Hong Kong, etc) use 2100 for their 3G data, though, not all (Australia....). The Nexus one, alas, loses to the Nokia N8 in some rather important respects. First, the Nokia N8 comes Pentaband 3G. This is ideal. Second, it has stronger multimedia (HDMI, great camera, inbuilt 16GB+ expandable 32GB of Micro SD expandable, more formats supported, etc). The Nokia N8 also wins on things such as battery life, call quality (I say this based on testimonials from friends with the Nexus One and I assume the N8's call quality will be good as thats the one thing Nokia always gets right). The two tie in things such as web browsing (Nokia N8 has flash support like the Nexus One + Froyo). The Nexus One might slightly edge the Nokia N8 in this regard, but if the N8 loads a page 3 seconds slower, it is of no consequence to me. The Nexus One wins out in the App support for Android. I might be a die hard Nokia user, but I can see that Android has more apps. However, whether I have any use for them, I do not know; I've never used Android before. I absolutely refuse to go Apple for a whole laundry list of reasons. So, the Nokia N8 is looking to be the better choice for me and my situation. However, I do want to give Android a chance, and I came here to ask a few questions: 1) Is there an Android, other than the Nexus One, that has atleast TRI-band 3G that supports Froyo? (I want flash support) 2) Considering that I use my phone for E-mail, calling, SMS and multimedia almost exclusively, is the Nexus One really that much better than the N8 (the Nexus One is certainly pricier). The N8 will come with the excellent Nokia Messaging E-mail client which pushes all manner of E-mail accounts. 3) Considering that Nokia wins out on some extremely important "phone basics" (Battery life and call quality -both of which I hear, perhaps wrongly, are an issue on the Nexus One), is the Nexus One still worth it for Android? 4) All the apps I need are currently on my E71: Skype, Mobbler, Grooveshark, Wikipedia, Opera Mini, Skyfire, Gmail, Google Maps, OVI Maps, Youtube, FB, Ebuddy for IMing on all sorts of networks. They will certainly be on the N8 too. The question remains, is there something more that Android can offer me? Sorry for the long post guys. I would like some opinions. Currently, I am leaning towards the N8. Perhaps, the discussion here can change that.
