Hi there.

Anybody care to venture which they see as better? The SE got a good review in Tone magazine, but my heart leans towards Mr Nokia - email features look a bit stronger for example........

Have you actually used either? You may play with them and find one much better than the other

Having used both, I would say that they are both are very good handsets.

The 6120c is a very stable/"does everything the box says it should" Nokia. Email is good, and I even had exchange sync running (much better than the SE). Lots of S60 apps are available for download.

The SEC510a has a better camera, and I like the slidey lens cover.. and about almost all the same features.

Its a personal choice.. Perhaps head into a store to compare?

Every phone is best suited to the person that uses it, i have always backed nokia but on the 6121c the buttons at the top of the phone are too small for me and i feel like a basketball player playing with a kitten. the sony has nicer buttons and i love the bigger higer res screen. its a newer phone and has a 24mth warranty against the 12mth one on the nokia. i would go for the c510, it is very pretty in black. if the sony was in prison its nickname would be fish. its that good looking.

I have a 6120c. Email functions are great. I use IMAP & Exchange Activesync.

Camera is pretty average at best in good light, and total mass-hattery (drop the 'm') in bad light.

Wish I had gotten a Sony I think, though for the price its pretty darn good.

S60 is great.

Cheers - the fish it is..... TH - love your sig. Hopefully he is just seen as an arrogant sh*t and gets put away for a long stretch. He could make the acquaintance of 'fish' as above... hehehe
