Review: Nokia Surge
I don't know what to make of this phone. The form factor suggests it is for messaging fanatics, but key components (social networking) are absent. On top of that, Nokia has done nothing to expand upon or improve the messaging features of S60. Despite the power of S60, the messaging applications feel antiquated and lack modern conveniences such as threaded SMS. Threaded SMS should be feature numero uno for messaging phones.
The camera is mediocre, as is the video quality. The music experience is OK, but is hindered by the 2.5mm headset jack.
Browsing is solid, as is the performance of the phone features.

I'd say if you're hooked on S60 and really like this type of form factor, than perhaps the Surge is a good choice. On the other hand, AT&T offers so many phones that cover the same ground — and do it better — that I'd have a hard time recommending the Surge to S60 rookies.
