Just got to fiddle with the new E71 (the one on the right), which was launched at Nokia’s own show on CommAsia week. From a 30-minute hands-on take today at the office, this shiny metal-clad GPS smartphone might just be my favourite from Nokia. It’s thin! Definitely pocketable. Secondly – and this will be a big draw for IM junkies and poor long-sighted souls like me – the qwerty keyboard feels shiok. Until touch-screen keyboard becomes haptic (as in it delivers some kinda force feedback when you jab at the keys), only real keyboards will do for me. Then again, touch-screen phones might still win over the I-wanna-feel-my-keyboard camp. This phone should be in Singapore soon, perhaps next month.

This is where my next paycheck is going to go… (:
Here’s my key input: I suspect we’re only touching the surface when it comes to the potential of touch interface.
Some folks might prefer a quirky keyboard over a qwerty one.
At the end of the day, though, just get whatever pushes your buttons lah.
(Touchy issue, I know…..)
