I was quite content with my Cingular 8525 until I found the Nokia N800 Internet tablet last weekend. The Nokia tablet ($400) is such a fun addition to the 8525's Internet functionality, but doesn't reliably connect to the Internet!! Then, despite Missing Sync, I had to use a PC to upgrade my Windows Mobile software, and wiped out all of my contacts accidentally. There are work-arounds, shareware programs, etc., but I am so tired of that. I simply want a Apple phone that works with my...Apple computer. I don't care anymore about the lack of 3G. I care about the ability to 1. Sync with my Mac with a mobile Apple OS (not a glitchy Windows hack/shareware work-around) 2. Play music stored on my iPod/phone if I want, or connect to Rhapsody and stream music from ONE unit. (with the Nokia N800, it's stream or grab the iPod and play pre-saved music) 3. Increase connectivity stability. EDGE is slow, bu it connects. If I am in a wi-fi area, I'll opt for that connection. Either way, conectivity should not be a problem. (with the Nokia N800 Internet tablet, connectivity is a MAJOR problem). 4. Hopefully access Flash and other web data as its intended to be seen. No web-enabled phone to date has lived up to this...not even the Linux based N800. It's Flash 7, so you can watch vids on You Tube with a wacky frame rate or convert them (hassle). I hope the mobile version of Mac OSX truly displays content as it's meant to be displayed/played: text and multimedia. 5. Get e-mails that look as they should, not as attachments that you have to re-sync to obtain and open elsewhere. I love my 3G. I love the ability to talk on my Cingular (HTC) 8525 while surfing the web, getting an e-mail or text message. BUT, the points above outweigh that. The only problem NOW is that like everyone else, I may have to "camp out" or miss out.
