Which Mobile Phone should I buy?
I need to buy a new phone.
I use Ubuntu Linux 5.10 and I would like to do the following:
- Copy files to/from my phone.
- Use my phone for its 3G connection
- Use my phone as a IMAP mail client, with Folder support.
- Synchronise my appoints from Evolution (or Sunbird?)
Which phone should I buy?
My experiences so far have been poor. My last one was a Samsung Z130 which could only do the 3G connection, and I couldn't do anything else with it. Previously I had a Nokia 7110i (or something like that), and that phone couldn't speak to my linux at all. My friend has a Sony/Ericcson Z800i which he's able to copy files (looks like USB stick on Ubuntu), and use it for 3G from the laptop, but cannot synchronise appointments, and the mail clients is poor.
I'd like to go with the manufacturer that is serious about open standards.
