I really want to ditch my Blackberry because while it does a good job at e-mail I need something that also lets me browse websites if needed. The 7750 is abysmal as a web surfing tool. The scroll wheel while great for e-mail just doesn’t do what you need when interacting with websites.
Enter the 9300i from Nokia that is taller and skinner than a typical smartphone but is packed with features such as a native e-mail client that supports POP3, IMAP4,SMTP and OMA data sync. The device can even support fax, mobile VPN, and firewall protection.
The 9300i weighs a scant 172 grams or 6 ounces, has 80 MB of memory and a MMC slot with hotswap capability.
The display is a good size at 640×200 and the color support is great at 65,536.
As you might have guessed there is WiFi (802.11g) support and the phone doubles as a music player, alarm clock and virtually anything else you can think of.
