    It's that time of the year again, and I'm trying to decide which mobile phone to go for. These two phones seem to be near the top of my list, so I was wondering if anyone here has some experience with either of them? Good or bad.

    I'm looking for a phone that's got a nice camera, looks good, has a easy menu system, can surf the net and use some kind of messenger (MSN / AIM etc.), and most importantly, make calls! :teeth:

    If you have any other suggestions, please feel free to post them! (y) :)

    I'll get a K800i soon. But I like SE's generally. Not sure it has has practical messenger functionality.

    I've got an N70 and its the nuts, the OS on it is fine and you can download free programs off the net for it - I just put Tetris and a MSN client thingy on my phone.

    My boss' N90 has pretty much the same software but slightly out-speccs mine. As always with Nokias they're so easy to use!

    K800i has a far better camera, with a better flash and macro mode.

    However, the N80's 60 series software has more expandability in terms of software, and the camera is acceptable.

    Up to you Stu.
