    My mother is looking for her first smart phone, she's 67 so it needs to be easy to use.

    I've been out of the phone market for a while now so I can't really give advise on the newer phones out there. She's narrowed her choices down to the iphone and the new Nokia E71x. Anyone have some input on the ease of use on the Nokia? She couldn't use my Touch Pro so it needs to be a really easy to use interface which makes me lean towards the iphone.

    Iphone.

    Buttons are easier to see.
    Interface is very very intuitive.
    Very minimal bugs.

    Iphone is pretty fail safe. I would recommend a Nokia to someone looking to get a little more outta there phone.

    What I would recommend is not buying a 67 yr old mother a smart phone. Get her a dumb phone........ and a cat.

    iPhone.

    My mom is 78 and picked mine up and was playing games and texting my sister with less than 2 min of instruction.
