Right, turns out getting an iMac sated my geek-style buying-shiny-things urges. For about a week. Now I want a new phone (partly because my contract is running out about now, partly because new phones are cool).
I’ve pretty much set my heart on a Nokia Series 60 smartphone, because they’re meant to be rather good and I love gadgetry (in case you hadn’t noticed).
However, I am struck by the dilemma of whether to get a 7610 (about a year old, but with good support from iSync, Salling Clicker and the like) or a 6680 (sufficiently brand new that most networks won’t have it for another couple of weeks, and no support as yet from iSync). I am faced with the choice of going with the known quantity of the 7610 about which I’ve heard very little but praise, which has good integration and plenty of features, or the 6680 which is more of a gamble with potentially higher payoffs (according to Loïc Le Meur, “it rocks”).
One thing to bear in mind about iSync support is that Apple have been historically rather bad at this, taking in excess of 6 months to support the aforementioned 7610, so is the gamble worth it?
