Which one: iPhone 16Gb or Nokia N96 or Blackberry Bold?

by raller08 / September 27, 2008 9:03 AM PDT


I am in a bit of a dilemma and need some guidance. I am looking at getting a new phone and have pretty much narrowed it down to the following:

- iPhone 16Gb
- Nokia N96
- Blackberry Bold

I am not an executive businessman who is looking for a phone that is pretty much a mobile office; i am just looking for something where i can browse the web, receive my personal emails, have the ability for GPS navigation, etc. Also, i am not concerned about the pricing of any of these phones - by no means am i filthy rich; i have an 'executive' account with a cell phone provider whereby i am able to upgrade my phone once a year.

If anyone can give me some good advice regarding which one of these to get i would really appreciate it.

Thank you in advance!

iPhone vs. Nokia

I'm also a fan of Nokia. The link which Sauna6 has posted is on the Nokia side. One of the most important features of iPhone is that it uses Safari to surf the web, which is secure and fast. Possibly a review with less orientation would be better.

Thanks anyway for that link. It was useful.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
