n79 n85 vs 6220 classic

have been waiting for the price on the 6220 to come down a bit but now that these two came out i think i might just wait another month or two. The only thing is how does the n79 compare in size to the 6220. Spec wise you have to like the 3.5 jack and the fm transmitter. What do you think people?

No Qwerty?

I didnt see any reference to Qwerty; which would really enhance the appeal 😢
These are N Series phones, which are multimedia focused (music and photography). Nokia only puts QWERTYs on its E Series phones, which are business focused.
