Default Nokia 5730 Xpressmusic?

Hello, all;

I've recently (since my Nokia finally kicked the bucket) have been looking for a new phone - for obvious reasons.

I live in New Zealand, so there's practically no such thing as contracts or carrier-locked handsets, since all the high-value stuff is sold unlocked or parallel imported.

I've been looking at the Xpressmusic/Xseries phones, and I'm leaning towards the 5730 at the moment, but I'm wondering if there's anything that might put me off the handset?

I guess poor sound quality compared to a dedicated music player might be one (in which case I have my trusty Samsung YP-R1), but I've never tried an Xpressmusic phone, so I'm keen to give it a go. After all, the music player is just an added bonus to me - I'm interested in the T9/QWERTY form factor, the WLAN, Bluetooth, and maybe the GPS in case I get lost.

The X6, in all it's glossy multimedia glory, is just over my price bracket.

Any comparisons between the 5730 and the E75 are very welcome.

After all that, I ended up buying a Nokia N97. Spent way too much, but never mind that.
