If you like a better designed phone, N96 is the way to go.

Other features which is better than N95:
16GB of internal memory + hot swappable memory card
Support of DVB-H tv, but you wouldn't be able to use this now.
Dual core CPU, although its number is lower than N95
bigger screen
Support for Ngage gaming (I don't know if N95 has this)
Stereo speaker which is quite noticeable

So far so good, I like it, it's fast and it's stable, but I think it's not worth upgrading over N95 but since I don't have N95, I'd get N96 instead.

He told me to just get the INNOV8.. which is about the same price for an N96 but has like a 8MP camera, 16gb, better UI.. and yeah. haha
INNOV8 is good, but I would get Xperia X1 instead.

I've been a Palm user for YEARS (partly because my uncle works for Palm)

The Treo Pro replaced my 750. My 750 was a Windows Mobile 6 device, and the Pro is also a WiMo device so I have no issues with the interface. Some people hate the WiMo operating system, some love it. I personally can't live without it, but I know some that just can't do it.

My biggest issue with the phone right now is it's keyboard sensitivity. The Pro is uses a keyboard layout and shape that is really similar to that of the Centro. The keys are pretty close together, and it doesn't take much force to hit a key. The problem I'm having now is that when I type on the phone, my fat fingers will accidentally bump the space bar instead of hitting the letters above it. That is the ONLY issue I have with it right now. Its annoying, but I'm starting to get use to it, and finessing my way around the keyboard.

The phone itself is a lot faster then my 750 after a hard reset, its nice and thin, and sleek looking.

For you? I'm not sure how attached you are to the Palm OS. If you don't live and breath it, switching over to WiMo shouldn't have you pulling out your hair TOO much. Aside from the operating system differences, if the keyboard layout on a Centro really irritates you, think twice about the Pro since they are almost the same buttons.

Time for something new, but as for WiMo I'm not to attached to Palm OS but i'll manage

I'm not a baller like some of you guys, I'm a deal hunter which is probably the opposite of a baller so here is a pretty sweet deal I got off of craigslist the other day

1. $15 for Bauer Vapors, the model is a few years old they are basically brand new and should last for a while



2. $10 for Easton Z bubble stick, barely has any wear on it, the model is also a little old but this was a $100 dollar shaft back in the day and still costs $100 in the new model (diff. color basically).... this was the real steal



If it was 2004, I got more than $200 worth of stuff for $25. This is as close to free as it gets

The stuff is used but in great condition... I check craigslist everyday and sometimes you can hit a sweet deal... its like the lottery. Just gotta get lucky with timing and contacting the seller asap.

pull that out around me and you would get shot
