    rokr is kinda cool, but i'd rather have an iphone

    however, i'm happy with my w810i, so i don't need either

    The e6 is nice, especially once you do the hacks to allow quadband and EDGE internet.

    I would take the iPhone over it any day though. I was never too impressed with the applications of the e6.

    but considering the prices and stuff? I mean, its a pretty big difference. is it worth getting the iphone for $150 more?

    :ugh:

    No, no, no. He should wait for the next iPhone, and to tide him over until then he should just buy a pair of cross-country skis and a batch of falafel.

    (this advice is only a sliver more retarded than yours)

    for $250 you might as well buy an unlocked sony ericsson w810i and be done with it. great phone, quadband, great user interface, good music player / WAP / etc., and best of all, fully supported by OS X / iSync.


    edit: nevermind, you already pulled the trigger. pics? :dunno:
