i got a siemens, not by choice this is just the one i ended up with after my other got nicked...
i heard that eventually everything in your life will be organised by ur fone, it will have ur credit card + identity + personal details etc etc...

I dont think it competes with the Ericsson R310 though..
they stopped making these because they were too good
