My Nokia 770

I love my Nokia 770 and it's much more useful than the iPod - I must say...Since I was bashing all device manufacturers other than Apple, I must exclude Nokia from the list...

Having the courage to come up with a Linux-based Internet tablet, when they did, puts them squarely in front of Apple...

The thing is that I use them both (iPod Touch and the 770) as remotes to control movie playing at home and the Nokia is better equiped to be the remote. It is a little bulkier and sluggish to reconnect the WiFi, but the web browsing experience is much better, for the simple pages my application requires (larger screen helps, but the ergonomics of full-page and persistent zoom are what make it the better one).

Fully customisable home screen and a host of applications out-of-the-box actually make it the winner...just to think that I've had it for a few years now and it cost half what the iPod did...why is this new iPod touch so backwards? Target market? Well, I guess simplicity does have its is a portable music player first of all!
