What's with the E71 loving on this site? Smallish screen and it's olddd.

Dean I am also in search of a new phone. Waiting to see what reviews say about the Sony Ericsson Satio which is out soon!

Screen isn't the biggest but it's not old.

Even if it was old, it's better built and has more in it than most new phones.

e71 is 12 months old, so its classed as an old phone, hence why the replacement is out in 4 weeks.

n96 is discontinued as it was a hunking pile of shit.

samsung jet, htc magic are good internet based phones from my experience.

There are (as far as I know) plus the software doesnt matter as much as the hardware with any htc as the software is changable at the min I have the hero rom and it runs fine got some good features on it. Only got the G1 because I got it the first week of release so there was no others out i prefer the keyboard even if I think the newer ones look slimmer and abit better.

Even if HTC stop giving out updates, xda forums will have them for a long time.

Rather have a magic anyway though.

Been on xda forums for years when I used to have my old windows phones great forum for any smart phone. I only like the dream because the keyboard really hate using toughscreen typing on any phone definatley the best phones out at the min (only other competitor is the iphone which I also love both, everything else just aint as good)

Nokia 5800 has Wifi and a fairly good browser, as with other Nokia smartphones I expect you can download Opera browser for it if you want it. 20 for unlimited texts and 200 mins, spot on 2 years though
