Need help choosing phone

Palm Treo 750 or Nokia E61/62
I know right now neither are bluetooth compat with BMW but I need Excel capabilites on my job.
I like the Nokia because it's WIFI capable so I can browse the web as needed but it has no camera.
The 750 has a camera but does not have WIFI capabilities and my company won't cough up the dough to activate any wireless stuff.
Anybody have ideas?
Thanks
I also have a P910 not being used... maybe I should just switch back over to that?
Right now I have a Motorola V557 so anything would be an upgrade but at least this phone is compatible with my car

wait...and iPhone....my 2 cents...but Right now I have a nokia 6600, (entry level smart phone from like 2 years ago, and I love the symbian OS, My friend just got and N80 and that kicks ass too!

So if you couldn't wait for iPhone, my vote would be toward the e61, but switching back to the Sony is a nice one too, I had a p900 for a while, kinda big but nice!

i'd say go with the nokia if WiFi is what you're looking for. on the other hand my gf has the 750 and it's pretty fun to play with. i have the blackjack and can't wait for the damn i-phone

Get the SE P990. Honestly probably the best phone I ever had, has everything you need, especially the capabilities of viewing excel spreadsheets. The new R9EA firware revision makes it really really stable, fixes all the bugs that were there from the original release, and even adds some functions.

I am actually selling mine right now on ebay. Here is the link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...1665&rd=1&rd=1

Go there to see why exactly I am selling it, I don't feel like reitterating it right now.

Best,

Dmitriy

So you have the Excel software already installed? I can't seem to find any included viewer that comes with the phone like my P910 did.
I also don't think that the iPhone has support yet for Excel.
The Treo 750 also has a add in card that allows use with Wi-Fi!!!
The 750 may be the ticket... so damn pricey!

i heard the SE P990 does not pair with the e90. i was about to get that but then i changed my mind. a nokia n80 is nice and it has a nice camera. i had that for about 6 months and it was definitely worth it. NOw i have a moto e6 and so far it's pretty good and it looks great. it's a smart phone with an ok camera and it pairs with the e90.

The iPhone is not worth the money for $500+. Not to mention that they already
fucked up by forgetting the phone in the first bunch of them sold. What a mess.
I'd stay with a Nokia or someone else who knows how to make a phone which
apple clearly doesn't. Have a look at the E50.
