    Nokia e62 vs Blackberry 8800

    Advertisement



    I currently have the Nokia e62 which, superficially perhaps, seems very similar to the Blackberry 8800. About the same size, qwerty keyboard, BB push email, no camera, Edge, no wi-fi. But it is sooooo slllllllooooooww. Takes an age to open each email, switch screens or between programs and has a diabolical earpiece that won't work unless placed absolutely just right to the ear.

    I have never owned a BB and for some reason am a bit scared to try. But given the similarity of the two phones I am seriously interested. You all seem so knowledgeable about your BBs - could you give me some advice, please. I would say that I am a business user and one other requirement - it must be able to sync to my Outlook contacts (and calendar too would be a plus).

    A bb will sync with outlook and calendar no problem at all.

    The nokia is Win based right?

    BB is a whole different world, and to me much more user friendly.

    This coming from someone who totes an 8700 and a TREO 750.

    Welcome to the Stacks DiggerG. If having your Outlook email, contacts, calendar, etc handy and updated seemlessly at all time is important to you, a Blackberry is the way to go. That's their forte'.

    The e62 is known for its "slowness" due to its less then suitable cpu choice. Go to a cingular store and demand to play with a 8800 before purchae whether its a store model or an employee's. All balckberries are mighty quick. The graphics got better with cpu upgrade but the user experience has always been lightning quick no matter how old the bb was.

    BB's setup wizard is so sweeet! For a first time BBuser, it was fairly simple, and now I'm a addict!

    Well, now, if I can find one (my local Cingular store is out of them), I think I'll take the plunge and at least try one. If it's as quick as you all say, then I'll buy it. Thanks for all the replies.

    I can tell you right off the top, a bb compared to a symbian based device is a better experiance hands down with the BB

    The symbian is good, just not the E62. Slow as heck. I love my BB much better!
