What Is Your Next Phone Going To Be?

Many new phones announced for this year, and I'm sure more great gadgets will be announced at the MWC in Barcelona in February ( http://www.mobileworldcongress.com/ ).

Personally, I'm a bit touchscreen-tired. I'm looking forward to Acer's "Blackberry style" Android phone (http://www.slashgear.com/acer-betouch-e210-android-smartphone-packs-qwerty-and-touchscreen-06123926/ ) . Better yet, I hope Nokia come up with a proper E71( http://www.mobot.net/nokia-e71/specs ) upgrade :D

I probably won't get a new one until the iPhone 5 comes out. I am rapidly turning into an Apple fangirl!

I just got a Nexus S - will see what it's like! Not sure it's going to last the year though as there's a lot of new phones rapidly coming down the pipeline. It does feel like "touchscreen" fatigue now though and I'm not sure where we'll see innovation this year that truely feels exciting.

I just had my iPhone 4 replaced (currently on my 3rd!). It's so pristine I don't think I could get the new model as it feels like a waste! Unless it's a massive upgrade, I'll stick with the iPhone 4.

i am hoping that the nokia n9 will be good spec wise and meego will be impressive. otherwise i think the motorola atrix will be my next phone.

I've got the HTC desire. I'm fed up with upgradeitus so if there's nothing fantastically better (dual core Gingerbread perhaps?) I won't change and switch to a rolling month sim only deal and keep it. That way if something fantastically better does come along I won't have to wait a year or so to get it :)

...seems a certain irish network starting with 'V' is incapable of fixing my Desire HD - I just got the second faulty replacement. Hoping for HTC that that isn't a trend? O-o

Will probably do something daring today and demand a Blackberry Torch ...

galaxy note.looks more like an i5 than an i5.

Any iPhone 5 pics you've seen, are almost certainly renders or prototypes which won't represent the final product :)

Thank god the Note reached an official launch before the iSue 5...sorry iPhone 5, at least stops Apple claiming it was a copy...maybe.

JanSt / MOD  Sep. 6, 2011 at 12:29

The Note will be launched in some Scandinavian countries in Q4 - in time for the Xmess...should be easy enough to import one

matt101101 / MOD  Sep. 6, 2011 at 16:28

As, I mentioned a minute ago, in the UK the note will be £600, which is wayyyyy to much. I'll wait for quad core and a slightly smaller, but still 720p, screen, *cough, cough* Galaxy S3....if it's anywhere near as ground breaking as the S2, it'll be phone of the year 2012, no doubt.

I'd love a new android qwerty slider, with a top range spec. Alas it looks like I'm on my own as nothing seems to be on the horizon which would suit. I was really looking forward to the Xperia Pro - but with an October release date and specs which weren't exactly 'killer' when it was announced at the start of the year, it looks as though it might be DOA...

JanSt / MOD  Sep. 6, 2011 at 17:11

Yes, though not big into Android, I'd like to see a Qwerty Android that doesn't scrooge specs-wise.

matt101101 / MOD  Sep. 6, 2011 at 17:35

Desire Z, that 800mhz CPU can be overclocked like a bit*h, it's a beast with a bit of fiddling. Also, anything bearing the desire name, tends be a damn good phone.

JanSt / MOD  Sep. 6, 2011 at 19:30

who are you talking to, matt?

matt101101 / MOD  Sep. 6, 2011 at 19:40

JoeBear...and you :p. The Desire Z is a great Android QWERTY slider. Just needs some...fiddling, to get it's full potential ;)

JanSt / MOD  Sep. 6, 2011 at 19:59

Sorry, I wasn't clear, matt - I meant a brick, frontfacing qwerty a la BB/E6...
And the Desire Z overclocked needs a very long charger cord to be of *mobile* use :p

Mines going to be a mango windows phone

matt101101 / MOD  Sep. 6, 2011 at 20:14

Jan, I've seen a Desire Z hit 2ghz, dual core fast when it's clocked that high ;)...god knows what that did to the battery life :p, 2-3 hours, at best I'd guess.

Oh right, I thought you meant sliding QWERTY, as that's what JoeBear (love that user name btw), mentioned :).
BB Bold 9900 is AWESOME! I could nearly live with no Android apps/rooting etc for the smooth, lag free experience of the 9900....nearly, being the key word...

JanSt / MOD  Sep. 6, 2011 at 20:37

Love the feel and design of the Bold 9900! It's gotta be one of the classiest things evah! (note to self: accelerate on way to work when approaching Vodafone store. Do NOT stop. Leave wallet at home. Think ugly thoughts)

matt101101 / MOD  Sep. 6, 2011 at 20:43

It's lovely, makes the iPhone 4 feel like cheap crap, which for all my slagging off of the iPhone, it's a quality product...until it falls to bits, a la my iPhone 3G... Get one on PAYG for 2 weeks, since you can in Ireland, it's free after all (as long as you can afford to be 500ish Euros down for a fortnight), no fair :(.

JanSt / MOD  Sep. 6, 2011 at 20:48

May just do that :p

matt101101 / MOD  Sep. 6, 2011 at 20:51

The UK is cooler...honest... :'(

tmobg2oc  Sep. 6, 2011 at 23:10

my desire z has great battery and yes it does take some fiddling to awaken it but it is a new machine when its done.
plenty of people blown away by speed of it.
destroys standard atrix/lg 3d daily in work.
shame there is no dual core qwerty on the horizon so i may have to get a tab(let) to play with til there is one.
my 2ps worth.

JoeBear  Sep. 7, 2011 at 09:25

I've heard loads of good things about the desire z, and if it was 6 months ago I'd probably have bought one without too much thought. Right now though I dont think I can bring myself to buy a phone which is already 12 months old - especially when so many shiny new phones have been announced recently.
