over in the "Nokia Surge 6790" discussion:

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.
what I think is that up down left right are going to be too hard, unneccesary how small the lip on the d-pad is but we'll see when it comes out.
????? What are you talking about? The camera resolution is decent considering the PRICE, I don't know of any phone on a carrier that has free GPS, and the data plan requirement is only for the rebate, which is only $50. The wifi, on the other hand.......

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"?)
i have COW-workers too
