Trading my Nokia E61i for an HTC TyTn

I found a trade deal this weekend on Howard Forums and will be sending off my Nokia E61i for an HTC TyTn. I wanted a TyTN last year when I reviewed it, but it was going for over US$700 so I passed it by. I want it for a couple of reasons, 3G support in the U.S. and the ability to load it up with the excellent PocketBible application and various translations. I loved the E61i and as readers know the E61 is the device that knocked the Treo out of my hands. However, with other Nokia devices in my current collection I would rather gain these two other benefits right now.

    Interesting change. Seems like a step laterally usability wise though. You gain just as much as you lost, except in a readily available keyboard.

    I would think that the Kaiser would be more your tastes though as both that and the E90 seem to fit your idea of the communicator side of smartphones that you seem to like and use.

    Yeah, it was definitely lateral, but the 3G and PocketBible support are valuable enough to warrant the trade.

    The Kaiser does indeed look like a great device, but I don’t have the cash for it right now and if it comes to AT&T then maybe I can sell the TyTN and get the Kaiser/AT&T 8925.

    I like the E90 specs, but am not sure about that widescreen display and think the E61i meets most of the same needs in a smaller form factor. I also spent that E90 cash by keeping the iPhone.
