TP Thoughts:

I feel a bit odd comparing these two. Really, it's like pitting Apples against Oranges in a Pineapple competition. :D

Although both are smartphones (duh), Nokia C6 and LG Optimus One are so different from each other that it almost makes sense to own both -- at the same time. One is a multimedia powerhouse with strong imaging and video capture capabilities and a full QWERTY slideout keyboard. The other, a slate device running the latest version of the leading operating system in the United States.

So there you go. If you were to ask me, which phone I'd personally get? I'd say, both.

But how about you? Which phone are you more likely to purchase on the sale day?
