I'm looking around for a good mobile phone..I dunno if they're called that in the US or anything but you get the drift...price isn't an issue in this case..what do you recommend? I was looking at the sony ericsson t68i

I've always gone for Motorola phones. I'm assuming that Australia is using a GSM system. The V66 is a nice compact phone that should run on GSM. The V70 is a flashy phone that will get you lots of looks.

But if you want to sync your phone with your Mac, I think the Sony/Ericcson phones are the only game in town. The T68i looks like a pretty cool phone, but I haven't seen one in use.

BTW, in the US, they're mainly called cell phones. Mobile phones works as well. So does "celly".

Since price isn't an issue... I'd definitely go with a half-ton truck and one of those completely cool Dr. Who red phonebooths. It's a phone and it's mobile.

Or you could support Apple's Channel partner - Motorola! I'm sure others will have some excellent suggestions as well... keep your eyes peeled here.
