The nokia folks recomended the n60, is that a way to go, rather is that 
a valid way to go?
at&t currently supports the n75, how different is this phone from the 
n70 in the 'pim and i' article and the n60 mentioned by nokia.
nokia suggested i view the compare phones thing on the web site, however 
this appears to be most inaccessible.
I can't google anything because I don't know what i'm looking for.
