Even though it's touch screen, it also has a pretty nice keyboard from what I saw. You wouldn't have to deal with the complexities of WM either.
T-Mo didn't roll out 3G in your part of CA yet, or is it only in your home/office that lacks T-Mo 3G(?)
I recently purchased an HTC Touch Diamond. Unfortunately, the phone really isn't my cup of tea: I'm not a fan of Windows Mobile or touch screens.
I've been researching phones for a few days now but can't seem to find anything; Europe gets all the decent cell phones and I live in Santa Barbara, California! I'll list a few of the features that are important to me:
-Must be GSM, I have T-Mobile
-Must have a QWERTY keyboard (I text a lot)
-A decent calendar
-Well organized and extensive call/text history
-Wi-fi with a decent browser (Opera!) would be nice but not a big deal
Because of my location I can't use 3G service so I really could care less. I don't use my phone for music, pictures, games, or other multimedia so those features aren't important to me either.
Some of the cheaper-end messaging phones, like Samsung's Gravity or Propel, seem like they would satisfy my needs, but their operating systems are poor/cheap. Back in the day I had a Nokia 6820 and loved it to death. The LG KT610 seems perfect, however it's a tri-band European model so I don't think it will work. Help?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
