Yes, I do pay attention to looks and I really really hate bricks. My favourite form factor is clamshell but the Razr v9 which I absolutely adore is really under-powered and over priced, so I'm looking for other possibilities.
Generally, I will use it for a phone/mp3 player. I sms a lot. I like the fact the D900i has a document viewer. That seems like a really useful function. I will use internet on the go and having heard that Telenor (my service provider) is going to be introducing 3G soon, the fact the U700 is a 3G phone makes me swing that way.
Curiously, I just find nokia terribly boring to look at and boring to use and the SE software is unintuitive for me since I've been a motorola person from the get-go.
Those with the U700s and the D900s, can you set your own sms tone because I know for the D600 you couldn't. I love using custom sound sets and background pictures, themes and generally everything and anything that I can, even if I have to use third-party software/hacks. So that matters.
Also what about the O2 stealth? Any one using it? Any reviews about it? Its for 18k on whatmobile.com
