Work Phone

I need to update my work phone with CPW on O2.

My main requirement is web browsing and email capabilities. However, ease of use is important to me. I've previously tried a Blackberry and didn't take to it at all. I probably didn't give it enough time though!

Other features like texting, music player and the camera will be used too as I also us it as a personal phone. I'd like to try a touch screen phone this time too.

Bearing this in mind, I've narrowed down to the renoir, HTC touch or Iphone.

Based on my requirememnts, do you have any reccomendations, please? From those three, or possibly another contenders?

Thanks

I'm 90% decided on the renoir btw. I just want some final input, especially if you think this is a mistake.

Neither options are wrong.

Really its all down to like you say your lifestyle and the specs your going to want.

I phone is rich in specs and useability but the battery life is short which is true for most touch screens due to the heavy drain they put on the battery.

Out of the 3 you name the i phone would be my choice.

Thanks Lee. I was wondering. On the CPW website, it lists the "smartphones" and the renoir is not amongst them, even though it seems to have all the properties of a smart phone.

does it lack something the others don't?

It will lack the platform to allow applications a smartfone utilises and the facility to download and expand.

Like Nokia's a smartfone uses platform s 60.

The more stable but less expandable s40.
