the funny part is: you are still here - even if you own a nokia phone. it seems to me like you will return to the spv when a couple of bugs will be fixed - maybe with an update sooner or later.
speaking for myself: the spv is definitly the smartest phone i ever owned. with a little tuning (big thx to this forum and the nerds on it!) it is handsome, useful and of course stylish (especially here in germany where you can't go to stores and just buy it if you wan't it, telekom will bring the next version from htc since the spv is exclusive to orange...). it always depends in what you wanna do - i wan't my contacts and dates in my pockets, a tool for a little entertainment with music and pics of my kids, the ability to surf the web for information on the go, mail connection and messaging functionality. all that comes in a very nice and for my taste easy to handle package in the spv.
just one thing hurts me as spv user: the battery is too poor to use all the nice features excessive. but i guess thats a problem we could expect from a ce-driven device. i remember this kind of discussion when it comes down to the battle between palm and ppc's. and something else has to be remembered: i had a couple of phones before - motorola, nokia etc.. they've had all kind of problems when they first came out. the hardest thing i remember was the motorola startac 85 - it switched itself off while i did phonecalls, i had to replace it at least 3 times till i had a working one. or the nokia 7110 - a freezer-phone. release battery to get it back to work. i guess it needed ours in the nokiashop to play a new software version on it. but all that seems so far away today.
i'll stick with my spv. and i know a lot people who would like to have one. i wouldn't recommend all of them to have one, but if you like playing around with things, love to discover what lays in your hand - then the spv is the phone you should have. we'll see what follows this first try.
