      Instant Messaging and Solitaire are the two major reasons I love my Smartphone. I have passed, literally hours, playing Solitaire on my phone.

      The compact framework is awesome too... how many other phones give you the ability to write such amazing applications for them so easily?!

      I think this is not enough (for example you could send an SMS from the airplane)...

      The 2 coolest things about my smartphone (an Orange SPV, since you ask) are the fact that it's an MP3 player (I'm the only one at work who doesn't own an iPod.  Believe me, there's a kind of extreme reverse coolness about that), and the fact that it has Internet Explorer.  I'm one of those people who has to google everything so IE on my phone is very handy.  It's also great that I can check train times when I need them and not have to go on the net just before I leave home for the day.

      True, but that assumes that my wife has her phone on, and that we get cellphone coverage at our house (we don't!). It's much easier for her, as well, to chat with a full keyboard on the PC than to send from her handset.

      I do realise, however, that this is a very U.S. way of approaching it Smiley

      He he, yes. Here in Europe the idea that you can't send an SMS seems so dated. I think IM definately has the potential to be the "next SMS" though, once enough phones have the capability.
