Like reports from both coasts with hand-ons tours of new devices with new user interfaces from both Motorola and Nokia.

AD       article continues below...

As you would expect from a team like Phone Scoop, we are bicoastal. This means we can easily cover events in California or New York at the drop of a hat. However we've never taken advantage of the fact as much as we did on Monday, when we attended events in San Francisco and New York City simultaneously.

In San Francisco, JavaOne provided a venue for Motorola to launch the E895, and with it their next generation operating system. Nokia was also there showing off a few phones we hadn't seen in person yet like the new 62XX sliders.

Meanwhile, in New York City another event provided an opportunity to spend time with a few other new Nokia handsets, like the Nseries and the 6265 CDMA slider.

Read on for first impressions (and lots of pictures) from both coasts.

Slider key lock?

Does anyone know if the slider locks when the kepbad is in and unlocks when extended - like a flip phone when open or closed? Or does it lock with keystrokes like a candybar.

My husband needs one hand operation and prefers the flip phone for unlocking and answering ease, but it easily slips from his hand when trying to open it - broke the last one that way. Has to carry in an upper pocket or pants pocket so size is an issue, no space for a case to protect it. In my mind a slider and Nokia brand for reliability in our area (other brands drop calls or go into roaming a lot sooner) may be a win/win.

Nearest working model to me is an hour away. It will be a one day thing when I check it out in my hand an decide on it or another opti...

Nokia CDMA

US release? Verizon or Sprint? I really like the look of that one!
US Cellular has it right now. I'm looking into it for my husband. He has some serious use/need issues as candybars are too bulky for him and flips are too awkward because he often has to operate one handed (not driving either btw), and dropped his l...

E895 surprisingly Nokia-like

Or so it looks to me. The keys and overall physical design remind me of Nokia flips like the 6255i.
I know . . . I don't normally care for Motos, but the fact that this one is Linux based and uses Opera for a browser is VERY appealing to me. I might actually consider it even though it's a moto . . . ๐Ÿ˜

...or should be. Actually.. rumour has it that Sprint's CDMA network needs to be upgraded fast, or the 2 keycodes will collide and kill the whole network. -- I don't know if its true, some guy who work for Samsung USA network development told me that.
CDMA is far from dead - in fact, it's thriving with Sprint and Verizon - and winning the 3G race at the moment with EV-DO.

Nothing wrong with GSM, of course, but CDMA is doing just fine.

The issue with Sprint and Verizon's networks needing upgra...

N Series coming US! WOot

I hope the N70 if it comes here will be the Hspda version with UMTS 850/ 1900 that would be hella sweet. N90 withn in the next month also excellent and N91 maybe sometime this year cu zz i don't think but do hope for earliar than a march debut for us. Decent I guess consdering we never got none of the good stuff before.
North America never gets any of the good phones because of the novel concept of using the 850/1900mhz band as opposed to the 900/1800 band that the rest of the world uses. Since CDMA and TDMA use the 800/1900 bandwidth as well, so it seems that there'...
