Nokia E62 / E61
Help! E62 or 8525
-I believe the E62 uses the Linux/Symbian platform, while the 8525 uses Windows Mobile. I think the Linux is fine, but there might be more programs and opportunities that come along with the Windows Mobile platform. Drawback is, I hear a lot of folks complaining about Windows mobile version. Never used it, so I can not say.
-8525 comes equipped with Wifi, E62 does not. Not sure if that is important to you or not.
-8525 is 3G (broadband speed) capable. E62 is not.
-The 8525 is much more expensive (approximately $400 w/2 year K).

The average 8525 user will either be new to the PDA devices, or had a old Audiovox

The e62 user knows what he/she is doing more or less
and is either coming from a Blackberry or Treo
The Nokia user will ask
"Can I sync my calander and Outlook from my pc with t...
