While users of the Droid X should be happy about having a phone that still rivals the market of smartphones today, this new nuanced upgrade to X2 power is well worth it for enthusiasts of the mobile cellular market and just technology in general.

Nokia has unveiled three new additions to its E series of business-centric smart phones at the 3GSM World Congress a while back. As with all of Nokia’s cell phones and smart phones, the U.S. availability of the models was up in the air, but we just got our hands on one today. It is an upgrade to the Nokia E61/Nokia E62, but do not expect any revolutionary changes. Instead, you get some minor design improvements and the addition of a camera as well as Nokia’s Team Office business application. Disappointingly, support for our 3G networks was not added and unlike the E62, the Nokia E61i does not have the backing of a U.S. carrier so you will pay around $400 for an unlocked version of the phone. That said, business users will be well served by the solid performance of the E61i’s messaging and productivity capabilities.
The Nokia N95 is quite possibly thee most robust and well-deserved phone we have ever come across in our reviews of cell phones.

The voice quality in the N95 is simply superb, and the web features and QWERTY are spaced just right enough to consider this a high quality phone.
Sony is the largest entertainment industry leader in the world, and has been the only leader in the cell phone market without a true carrier for a long while. But does that stop them from producing quality products in comparison to more sleek styles? Nope.
