Nokia N96 vs HTC Touch Pro

I remember the first time I was burgled. It was in 1993 and I was living in London at the time. It was a tad unsettling to come home and see the front door of my apartment smashed open, and things not exactly the way I left them before I went to work!  I lost a bunch of Audio CDs, my TV and some cash that was lying around - but NOT my computer.
