    Just think of this as another one of those polls that are always posted here. I want to be honest, I would like to use the reviews/specs on another site of mine that I am in the process of building. Anyone reviews submitted will be highly appreciated! Here is the info (non-specific) that I am looking for. The more written the better, and if you feel something is relevant that is not listed here, please add it. I've placed this in the chat section purposely hoping it would receive more attention. Thanks in advance!!

    Phone: (model)
    Carrier: (Nextel, Sprint, T-Mobile...)
    Ease of use:
    Pros: *
    Cons: * I guess these 2 with the asteriks are the most important
    Battery Life:
    Camera: (does it have one? clarity?)
    Color: (referring to type of display)
    Bluetooth: (does it support these devices?)
    Picture: (only if you have one already of course)

    Jim, I would love to know which cell phone is the best for sound-especially loudness. Anything else, other than I guess 'not getting cut off' is inconsequential to me.

    Here's something that got linked by Instapundit, which might help ya:

    difference between the new and old...
