Thomas Newston of Mobile–phones.co.uk highlighted the Sony Ericsson W705, the Nokia 6260 Slide and the BlackBerry Curve 8900 in his column for Manchester Evening News supplement ShortList, claiming each handset offers great features to consumers depending on what they want from their phone.
For people seeking “supremely fast email”, the BlackBerry Curve is the best bet, Mr Newston suggested, claiming that it is also the finest BlackBerry to date from a typing and display point of view.
The Nokia 6260 Slide is the most expensive model at £500 but has plenty going for it, he said.
“If you want to have some nifty features, but don’t want your phone to be an indecipherable supercomputer, this is perfect,” Mr Newston remarked.
The Nokia 6260 was released in November last year and features the latest 3G technology, GPS and a five megapixel Carl Zeiss camera.
