I'm looking to get rid of my N502it DoCoMo and
get a J-Phone...I was going to get a new N-series
Docomo phone, but I want to get something with
a camera to show off to my friends coming over in
July. :) Yes, I know about the 251-series, but
they don't even have Java, so what's the point? :)
Anyway, I love my N502it to death...it just feels
"right" to me. I'm sad to see that NEC doesn't
really have any new J-Phone models, so that
leaves me looking at either the SH51 or the T51.
The SH51 looks cool, even if it feels a bit
bulky, and it has that SD memory slot, which
could be useful (though I'm not sure about the
mp3 capability of it...how long would the battery
last on that thing if you listen to an entire album's
worth of mp3s on a 64-meg card?). The T51 didn't
feel quite as good to me for some reason, but
it has the giant bonus of having an English mode
(even if it does change the menu screens to some
generic ukiyoe pictures :). My N502it doesn't have
English, and I've survived this long, but it would be
a nice feature to have.
Anyway, if anyone's used either of these phones, or
knows of any other models on the near-horizon, please
let me know your opinions. I don't want to buy a phone
for a year and then find out that the interface is so clunky
that I'll end up hating it after a day or two. :) I have
used both phones at a J-Phone store up in Sendai, but
wasn't really able to decide there which one I preferred.
Thanks for any opinions!
