    I know nothing about these so-called smart phones. I've had my Sony Ericsson K800i for about three years now and the wife said I could get a new phone.

    These are the three that I'm interested in.

    http://europe.nokia.com/find-products/devices/nokia-x6-8gb/specifications

    http://www.samsungmobile.co.uk/mobile-phones/samsung-galaxy-580

    http://mobile.acer.com/en/phones/betouch-e400/

    They are all around the same price. I really like the Nokia because it has a 5mp camera w/ flash, 8gb internal harddrive and stereo speakers. But I'm sure if the O/S is any good and the cpu is only a 434 MHz processor. The Samsung has a 667MHz processor and the Acer has a 600 MHz processor. The Samsung and Acer both come with the Andriod 2.1 O/S. Is that better?

    Please help! I'm lost...:confused:

    You might want to consider (if you havent already) the LG Optimus (GT540).

    The LG is in the same price range as the others but is there anything in particular that makes it better?

    It's a Taiwan carrier called FarEastone
