    I want a bluetooth phone to go with my shiny new MacBook Pro (that and my current one is on its deathbed) and I'm torn between the Motorola RAZR (too cliché now, aren't they?), Motorola SLVR, and the Sony Ericsson W600i.
    I really like the thinness of the motorola, matching 'Pro' Mac color, as well as iTunes support (seriously though, I have a 60GB iPod in my pocket!)
    On the other hand, I love my Sony Z500a. It feels solid and, as far as UI and software go, Sony is to Motorola as OSX is to Windows.
    Does anyone have experiences to share regarding these phones? How do they fare with iSync. I am really 50%-50% right now. Help?

    thought about the Motorola q3? Smart phone with SLVR's thickness

    I just bought a Cingular 8125 and while sitting at the DMV with a friend reading a Techno magazine, i saw the first write-up on the Q3 and was PISSED... wish i had waited, but still very happy with the 8125.

    Slvr or Sony. I'm not sold on Motorola products (crappy UI) despite me owning a blue RAZR (not my choice, my mom just selected it for me.. i coulda gotten a better value).

    You're definitely right about the RAZRs.. they're all over the place now. If you want to distinct yourself from the others, you grab the SLVR. You get the added bonus of iTunes on it (albeit 100 song cap) that can be "blasted" via "speakers". Then you can get the shiny "ooh aah" from your RAZR buddies.

    My personal option is the sony. A damn cool phone that I highly doubt anyone has, so you can pretty much be assured of "Think[ing] Different." Sony's got a better UI as well.

    Yeah, I am leaning sony too. I only worry about Mac compatibility.
    According to the reviews I read the general (actually, I didn't see one bad review) consensus is "Best Ph0ne EVER!!!!!!!!OMGLOLOlOLOLOLOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    h0e0h, The Q3 looks awesome, but I don't really need a smartphone and am trying to save money. Thanks though.

    Edit: found some software to sync iTunes... so yeah... I think I'll get the sony. I still cant find a bad review.
