Nokia, $899 nokia.com.au
★★★ NOKIA is trying something different with this smartphone that offers new ways to interact. For starters, the phone offers users the choice of a 3.5-inch touchscreen or a slide-out keyboard. The keyboard is a three-line construction with buttons that lie flat, but users should adjust quickly. This phone also uses Nokia’s recent Maemo software that offers multi-tasking and a better web experience. Its old-school appearance, thick body and persistent landscape view limit its appeal.
