    Hello. I'm not sure if this is the best forum to post this in, but here goes.

    I'm starting a new job soon, and my current phone is rather old, so I'm planning on getting a new one soon. I've spent some time looking at what's available, and so far, the Nokia 6230 and 7610 look the most interesting.

    I know the main difference is that the 7610 runs Series 60 Symbian, while the 6230 is Series 40, plus a few small features. Also a few $$$. The thing is, I'm not really sure exactly what Symbian does or what the advantage of having it is. I've heard that you can run more programs on it, but what kind of programs, and where do you find them? It is worth the extra $$$ to have a "smartphone"? Any noticeable speed differences?

    Also, if you have any recommendations for other phone models/brands that have similar features, I'd like to hear them.

    Having Symbian on your phone allows you to use a lot more programs based on Java Mobile Midlets and more freeware programs than the Series 40 selection. The simple fact is that Symbian is used by numerous companies (Sony Ericsson to name one) so you'll find that there are more programs/apps out there.

    A few places to get you started:

    www.symbian.com
    www.my-symbian.com

    Apps to consider:

    I'll add more next week.

    Personally, I like Symbian OS since it's a lot more flexible than Series 40.
