    please give me information up to date

    I'm frankly very frustrated with the state of the technology and the cellular industry. I would love to get a Motorola E1000, but I gather they've hitched their 3G wagon to Cingular/ATT Wireless, and I'm guessing that merger will be nothing but problems for the next year or two. In the meantime, Sony Ericsson's Z1010 is an excellent example of last-year's state-of-the-art, replete with a VGA camera; and now Nokia's released half-a-3G phone which can do videoconferencing only with a special attachment! Be still my beating heart. I've a bad feeling my lust for a megapixel camera/cellphone will have to be sated with, say, a Nokia 7610. this could work, considering the forecasts that 3g won't be running in the US until 2006, so a two-year contract with a 7610 could time itself out to good coincidence... sigh.


    For whatever reason, NOK had for a long time been somewhat religious about clamshell style handsets. Some have argued that this is b/c it's much harder to carry forward the distinctive "Nokia Look" into clamshell territory and - being the style / branding conscious Finns - they've conciously made this decision.

    In any case, expect a slight uptick in their fortunes in the US and Asian markets now that they've finally brought clamshells to market. However, the underlying long term trends that have thrust Sanyo, Samsung et. al. so deep into the market won't abate. More Vodafone-Live! anyone?
