Nokia 9300 Communicators were everywhere

9300

Russell Beattie reports on Things I didn't see at 3GSM in Barcelona:

Treos or Blackberries: Nokia 9300 Communicators were everywhere, and though 'd see the odd American with those silly belt-hooks for their Palms and Blackberry phones, they were pretty much non-existant.

Same thing at last week's conference. Anneliese, Mark, Otto, Wolfgang ... everybody had a 9300. I'd probably still be using a Treo, if it had Blackberry Connect yet.

Treo 650 user here, but what I'd drop it for in a second is one of the new E70s.

I've been demoing a 9300 since mid-November or so, including all of Lotusphere.

It's interesting if a little slow. I'm running the Blackberry Connect software on it and I was surprised to find out that I'm not missing anything by not having the RIM/Blackberry hardware. I thought I'd at least miss the thumbwheel.

Maybe I'm not creative enough or maybe it's what I do but I don't tend to use most of what the 9300 can (slowly) do. I think it's a little big and heavy for what I'd use it for if it was a personal cell (probably going to get some version of the HTC Tornado for that soon), but comparing between the 9300 and the RIM 7290, I still don't have anything to really prefer one over the other.

I'm using a 9500 and the main reason I prefer it to the 9300 or 9300i, is the cursor control key, which is just abysmally bad.

Has anyone yet tested the new Nokia Communicator 9300i and the BlackBerry Connect Client? I am not talking about the client version for 9300/9500. This client does not work on the 9300i.

Abdelkader: There is no client out for the 9300i yet.

I "upgraded" from a 9500 to a 9300!

My 9500 now sits unused.
