iPhone vs E71: What a Tough Choice?
What started with a number of Plurks and Twitter messages, snowballed into what you see above.
I now have in my hands a very tasty E71 Steel White which I shamelessly lined up next to my equally tasty white iPhone 16GB!
Alright I know you want details. So here it goes!
I Plurked and Twittered that I was looking to move on from my battered and beloved E61. I then shared that I was deliberating between an iPhone or an E71. I was almost going to shell out the $400ish for the E71, when I decided instead to go with the iPhone. My last minute change of heart was due to my need of getting access to all my web content away from the computer. I also wanted to see what the iPhone fuss was all about and how it was supposed to be a great “media consumption” device.
The lovely people at Nokia and Text 100, decided this cannot be and decided to loan me an E71 to prove to me that I made the wrong choice! How nice of them? Heh-heh.
Decisions, decisions and decisions!
I have to say the Industrial Design of the E71 does holds its own and managed to even stir up a studio filled with Apple/iPhone hugging designers. Now that is cool. Designer peer pressure anyone? So what do you guys think?
