Which is better Smartphone HTC ChaCha or Nokia E6

HTC ChaCha vs Nokia E6

HTC ChaCha and Nokia E6 are the smartphones that are very close in their specification and features but different in brands. Both of them have similar look, similar QWERTY keyboard and screen sizes. Both of them were announced during very close time period, i.e. early in 2011. As I am also a big fan of QWERTY keyboard as I have hands on experience on Nokia E71 and E72, so I thought to compare latest offers from HTC and Nokia with each other. The comparison would not go long in speach but it would be a specification comparison like the one I did for iPhone 4 and Desire HD.

This time I have tried a new format. Below is the table that shows specification of both smartphones ChaCha and E6 and in the next column you will find my comments. You will find a shade of green color in the row where I gave more rating to HTC ChaCha and Where Nokia E6 has more rating the row color would be a shade of pink. However where row color is white or no-color, it means none of the smartphones have any advantage over other one. Finally I must say, it is a Human compiled comparison so there might be a chance of error. So please correct me if you find something to correct.

Beside a few advantages of Nokia E6 over HTC ChaCha I must say HTC ChaCha is a better smartphone than Nokia E6. The best thing in ChaCha is Operating system advantage. Android operating system is growing quickly these days. It has a huge collection of apps at Android market. That is much much better than Nokia Ovi Store as per my opinion. Nokia must think of improving their operating system to something that is now in. Let's see what nokia will do in future. At the end I must say thanks to GSM Arena for providing me the specification of both these devices.
