5800 or wait for G2
Looking for some advice because I need to change my paltry £10 a month mobile contract that o2 kindly sorted me out with when I was out of work last year. As I'm earning now I really want a decent handset and lots of/unlimited texts.
I've been following Google Android development and like what I see. I'm considering the G2 on Vodafone next month but that's going to £35 at least I would say. Not too keen on that.
An iphone is out because I'm not prepared to pay the premium monthly fees.
Noticed the Nokia 5800 in last few weeks and everything I've read and seen I like. It's affordable on some pretty reasonable contracts, £25 from Vodafone and £25 to £30 for o2. Thinking if I tell o2 I'm leaving for Vodafone they might throw in unlimited web for £30 a month.
My only real concerns with the Nokia is the OS and 3rd party application development with Symbian as opposed to Android and iphone. Seems as though there is strong support for symbian but I'm worried that if I tie myself to an 18 month contract Android or iphone will have far surpassed Symbain capabilites by end of 2010.
Anyone else gone for a Symbian phone recently? What do you think?
Any Android watchers think I'm better off holding off for G2 or one of the Android other handsets which will be landing in the 2nd half of the year?
Thanks in advance everybody
