To the person who harped about Nokia's talking phone capabilities, a few years back Motorola had a phone called the "Ming" which had the same features as you said...and it was a touchscreen with a transparent flip...ah well to each his own :)

First of all the BLUETOOTH in Nokia smartphones clearly beat Blackberry's bluetooth.

I have a Nokia smartphone and there are so many smart things about it which leaves Blackberry in the dust.

I could list a thousand but I will just list a few because GSMArena would probably run out of storage memory if I was to list them all.

Complete voice features with Nokia E-series smartphones isn't found in Blackberry phones. Examples, once somebody from your phonebook calls, Nokia smartphones SAYS the caller's name ALOUD due to it's built in speech synthesizer. This way I can have the phone in my pocket or be away from my phone and easily know who's calling.

You can also have your text messages read aloud and there's also a speech feature which narrates whatever you are doing on the phone (like a Windows PC) like say the time, call out each contact's name while you go through your phonebook etc. This is a good feature for people who are visually impaired.

Not to mention multitasking is a WHOLE LOT BETTER with Nokia smartphones with it's smart select feature when switching between apps. There are so much more I could list out.

Nokia is number one in the market for a reason.
