Hunting for my next mobile phone

I want:

  • Brand: Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Samsung, HTC, BlackBerry
  • OS: Any except Windows Mobile (So HTC is almost out of question)!
  • WiFi
  • BlueTooth
  • Qwerty keypad
  • Screen: at least 3.5 inch
  • FM radio
  • 3G
  • Good quality camera with at least 3 Mega pixels and a Flash
  • Fast processor

At present I am using i-mate JAMin a rebranded HTC phone with Windows Mobile 5.0.

Windows Mobile sucks! The processor sucks! The combination is slow, the phone hangs often. There’s no querty keypad which I have found is must for a smartphone. It’s tedious typing emails or even SMS on the tiny on screen keypad. FM radio is something that I miss sorely from my Sony Eriscsson K750i. And 3G is round the corner, I would better get a 3G capable phone.

Nokia E90 is already out there but is expensive at 35K. Nokia E75 is another contender and is just out but it has an odler OS in Symbian S60. I am interested in Nokia N97 which is due in June. It has everything I want plus 32 GB in built memory and a 3.5 inch screen. The feature set is impressive. Lets wait and watch!
