  • Good try no cigar!

    This device has a great capacity, but there is a small snag, the device is just too small, it is an exercise in itself to use it. A device of this capacity should only come out in minimum 3.5 inch screen, I suppose will be just right for those who have perfect 100% eyesight and extreme petite fingers.

    Just my thoughts.

    • Dude, its not a lap top.

      Its supposed to fit in a pocket, not a back pack.

      • But It Has Windows Mobile

        So thats the biggest strike against it...

        • RE: But It Has Windows Mobile

          Windows Mobile is great, at least until version 2003. Haven't used 5 or other yet. Do you have any specific issue with it?

        • Thank gawd it does.

          Otherwise it would be stuck with some Linux varient or gawd forbid, OS X.

            It's VARIANT, not VARIENT.

  • "unboxing it was enjoyable"

    ...that's sick.

  • Finally!

    Now everyone can shut up about all the features that the iPhone doesn't have! Here's
    all those missing/neglected features all in one package.

    Funny, I didn't even know it was coming out. It was released on October 3rd and I
    didn't hear anything about it. Were there any line ups to get this baby?

    • Yes, But It Has Windows Mobile On It

      So we're guaranteed tons of lockups, random call drops, etc...


      Don't hear about the IPhone doing that now do we?

      • Thank gawd it does.

        I am sorry you seem to have such a hadr time with something grade school kids have mastered. Do you want training?

        • I Didn't Know You Had Such A HADR Time Spelling

          Need a gradeschooler to tell you how to properly spell? And you're a blithering idiot, look at the reviews people give this POS mobile OS, and the device has been reset numerous times to factory default. So either shut your trap or I'll cave your head in with a bat.

          • There is so much you don't know

            we could not list them if we had all the worlds serves to hold it.

      • Well, I never said I'd buy one!

        I'm just happy that such a Rube Goldberg-esque handheld device actually exists. It's
        truly the Swiss Knife meets Leatherman meets PocketFisherman of the handheld
        world. Now when people start going on and on about all the features and do-dads
        that iPhone doesn't have, I can point them at this thing and say, "Look, you don't
        have to buy and iPhone, you can buy this thing instead" and everyone will be happy.
        Well, in theory anyway. Some will have to deal with Windows Mobile as you say ;)

  • For your information about standby and talk times...

    AT&T 8525 has a standby time of 250 hours and a talk time of 5 hours.
    Similarily, AT&T Tilt has a standby time of 200 hours and a talk time of 4 hours.

    My UTStarCom PPC6700 from Alltel has a talk time of ~4.75 hours, although this is just an approximation, hence, the "~" sign before the number.

    (For ZoomText 9.0 screen readers out there, it should pronounce "A T and T." ZoomText's screen reader pauses for a second after the "&" character.)

  • Does It Lock Up 3 Times A Day?

    Tell you that you have 9,999 text messages in your inbox after you've cleared it out?

    Drop your bluetooth phone calls in an open area?

    Lose the ability to connect to the Internet at random even when you're within 5 feet of a wifi area or in a 3G area?

    Gotta love Windows Mobile 5...and I heard Mobile 6 is even crappier...

    Once the IPhone goes 3G this POS is on Ebay...

    And No_Axe, to smack down your idiotic comment, the phone has been reset to factory default several times and it still does the same thing, so your moronic comments about "operator error" can go right back down your trap.

      • Yes, like most zealots he is a closet user.

        But he seems to have problems most grade school kids don't. I have offered to send him a 12 year old to help but he refuses.

        • I Offered To Kick Your @ss Too

          But you didn't show up.

          Now tell me, where do they teach Windows Mobile OS to gradeschoolers?

          Can't name a school? That's right, because once again, I OWNED your pathetic old @ss.
