Looks nice but ...

I really like the form factor, but no wi-fi, poor camera resolution, no standalone GPS and data plan requirement makes this a no-sale.

over in the "Review: Nokia Surge" discussion:

Sounds like an alternate version of...

The E71.

Same features, right?

My E63 is rather boring (S60 feels positively ancient after playing with the Bolds & iPhones of cow-orkers), but seems to have the Surge beat pretty well by just having Ovi access & a 3.5mm jack. Ovi sucks, but it's still better than the AT&T pool of programs.

I sort of understand Nokia's strategy of laurel-relaxation (ie - if it ain't broke, don't fix it), but they seem to have stood still while the whole mobile world has moved on to more exciting & innovative UIs and OSs (or would that be OSes? Or should I simply say "operating systems"?)
