+1 on this
battery life is a priority for me too - it kinda goes with the "mobile"
part of the mobile phone in my book.

I'm currently using a (dreadfully boring and uncool) Nokia e51 and my
ideal phone would really be the e51 with a bigger screen, an
updated/faster browser and a better camera (bonus points for a built in
gps device). I've been using the thing as a modem (with windows OR
linux) for a yonks, it lets me surf the web, it runs the new skype for
mobiles, it has wifi, its very small and it cost be bugger all as an
upgrade. Vodafone want about €400 for an N900 as an upgrade (wtf?).
Anyone know of a suitable upgrade for my e51? :)
I'm leaning towards a HTC phone next for a play around but not if it
costs me a few hundred euro (in my mind a phone is a throwaway device
anyways so it seems nuts to spend the price of a laptop on it).
