Gettin' rid of the Pocket PC for a regular phone, whatcha think?

Ok so I've decided to get rid of my Pocket PC and go back to a regular flip phone. Don't get me wrong, i LOVE my PPC but it's a bit bulky and a bit to hard to use as a phone (it's more tailored to internet/email than being used as a phone).

So what I've bought in place of it is the new LG Fusic MP3 phone. A buddy of mine has one and he luvs it, and I've played with it a bit and must say I rather like it myself. Along with the transflash slot it also has a built in FM transmitter so that you can play your MP3's on any FM radio within 10 feet which is kinda nifty cruisin' down the road. It also has all the usual gizmo's like camera, external display, voice dialing, bluetooth, phone as a modem, etc.

What do you think, what would you do? Keep the PPC or get the flip?

vs.

Nothing beats a phone designed to be a phone IMO. Go for the LG, it looks sick.

Looks like the LG is ahead, keep up the comments I've had LG's in the past and been less than impressed as well, but this one seems very very nice in comparison to the others that I've had.

windows mobile is mainly used for business ppl, i have an audiovox with windows mobile and i never use any of the so called windows apps that come with it.. i use the internet on it, which is alot faster and has a better layout than other phones h/e theres nothing better than being on a compy. basically just get whatever suits you best.

i have to say, i do not like the look of that LG

in this day and age, flip phones do not need antennas, and it looks too flashy and too much like a blue ipod for me

Ur right, phones don't NEED antennas but guess what, I bet that phone gets better reception than phones without antennas, doesn't bother me really tbh.

It also comes with 4 different color face plates from the factory in blue, black, pink, and green I think is the 4th color.
