I’m really torn between the 2 phones.  I’m tempted to get the iPhone ‘cos of certain applications like the TVU player and GV online.  The Nokia, however, has a better camera & allows customisable contact/ringtone profiles, not to mention T9 input and handwriting recognition.  I think I’d definitely prefer the X6… but when will it be out?  Boohoo!!
