If you printed out the specs on paper of the SK3 compared with the WM5 and now WM6 platform and other Smartphones, yes, it pales.Originally Posted by treid12
But the intangible thing you cannot rate until you've got used to it is the speed and integration between applications. Once you've memorized a few shortcuts, it's part of you. Without a stylus, I can be in line in the grocery store and feel a text message come in, one hand take it out, read message, flip it open, pick "reply", bring other hand in for the kill, bang out a 100 char reply, thumb down to send, and have the whole thing back in my pocket in 15 seconds from the first vibrate. That was JUST NOT POSSIBLE on other devices I tried.
The rock-solid AIM client, 90% solid Yahoo Client and 75% solid MSN client (lol) are icing on the cake. (I need more AIM friends... that client is NEVER down!), plus cutting and pasting between IM/EMAIL/SMS is just sick. Someone tells me something in a text I can cut-n-paste into an active IM session in about 5 seconds. Sick.
Integration. Key is integration.
So no, not for looks AT ALL. I don't care if it looked like a turd, I'd still use it (until I got something better).
