    Default Successor to N86

    If you are a fan of the "N series" type Smart phone, but not a fan of touch screen (it cant just be me !) where do you go from here ? Nokia produced produced two massively popular phones in the N95 8gig and the N86. The N8 looks like its the business but alas it has touchscreen !! Am I a dinosaur ? probably, I have no plans to leave Nokia (yup def a dinosaur), I may be wrong but I cannot see a natural successor to these phones and I suspect that there are a great many more like me.

    the n8 is only the beginning of symbian^3. i'm pretty sure there will be a touch screen/hardware keyboard device which you'll be able to use mate.

    @ bsmstar- Yeah that's really sad.. But guess what? I just found out that it's still available through timtechs but thing is if Nokia did cut the support then perhaps you'll need to look for another model? I wish you good luck
