Won’t somebody please get me a Nokia E51?

Something strange is happening with me. It happened over the weekend.

I was in a Vodafone shop and … I don’t know what came over me. I headed over to the other side of the store where they had the ‘work’ phones and I started browsing the small handsets.

We’re doing a lot of consultancy at the moment which means I’m having to be on-site in client offices regularly. And lugging about the Nokia E90 is a bit annoying. It’s huge. And it interferes with the lines of one’s suit.

I felt myself wanting a smaller, lighter handset. But with the same general facilities that I’m used to from Nokia – Mail for Exchange in particular.

I am now seriously considering a Nokia E51. Small. Slim. Powerful.

Good choice, do you think?
