nice taste in music Eric!

i'm assuming that it was your music on the phone.
It was. Thanks.
That is exactly what I thought when I saw that screenshot. Smile

Great Video Review

Thanks guys.

I really think this is a much better choice music phone than the Samsung UpStage.
It's also better than the Motorola Rizr.

Voice activation feature

I noticed you said nothing about the Voice Activation feature on the phone. You can use it to access programs on the phone as well as make calls by holding the right soft key or the volume down key until a tone plays and speak now appears on screen.

I personally don't like it because you need to learn how the voice tags are spoken by the phone and then imitate them. Trying to call my mom's cell phone by saying "mom cell" I recieved either contact not found or a list of items to choose from that twice out of 10 tries came up with her on the list.

Rogers Wireless Nokia 5300 has a different media player

Just an FYI for any of you Canadian folks reading this article and considering the 5300: The Rogers Wireless version has a completely different Media Player.

Some of the key differences are:

-You can NOT minimize the media player and so it is impossible to do anything else while listening to your music (you can still minimize the FM radio).

-Almost all users have issues with the Rogers Media Player not "seeing" their tracks or if it does giving them a "DRM error".

On an unrelated note I stopped using my 5300 largely because of the fact that it has no Email Client. (what phone in 2007 does not have an Email client?)
