    Hi, I am deciding between the Nokia 7650 and the Ericsson T68 phone but wanted to know what the difference between MMS (as in the 7650) and EMS (as in the T68) is?

    Also, are there any general opinions regarding which handset is best?

    the 7650 is only available in Europe. As for MMS vs EMS, I suspect they are merely "branded" names for the same thing.

    Quoting from Ericsson's website (http://www.ericsson.com/ems/):
    A new universal messaging standard has arrived. It´s called EMS (Enhanced Messaging Service) and is a direct descendent of the ultra popular SMS (Short Messaging Service), which by the end of 2000 was being used to send more than 15 billion text messages per month worldwide. With EMS, your text messages become more than just words. Pictures, melodies, animations and formatted type bring your personal communiqués to life.

    Nokia has probably labeled theirs "Mobile Messaging Service." (I tried to verify this but Nokia's main site (www.nokia.com) is down right now.)

    It is as if we both sold hardbound books, but to make mine seem special and unique, I advertised that only my books have SureFlex(tm) binding. You counter by advertizing your books as the only ones to have OmniGrip(tm) binding. When the informed consumer cuts through all the bull, he discovers that they both use matting and glue for binding their hardbound books.

    This is the problem I have had with ATT's latest "mLife" ads. It is just one more thing to confuse the uninformed and make them think they are getting something no other carrier can offer. And by the way, it is working just as ATT had hoped. I spoke to an ATT employee today and he said he agreed it was laughed at and mocked by the employees, "but it IS getting people in the door. And isn't that what advertising is supposed to do?"

    I couldn't argue with his logic.
