New Phone/PDA

Right well I'm pretty obsessive with what phone I have so although my contract runs out in August I'm looking now.

So far top contender (if it's out then) is the Sony P1 (thx XMS for pointing it out)

Link



Second is the Sony W950i

Link



Third is the O˛ XDA Argon

Link



I want:

* WiFi

* 3G if poss, or deffo GPRS

* Touchscreen

* Decent operating system

* Decent Browser

* Decent storage capabilities

And obviously mobile and text messaging capabilities

What dy'all reckon?

As an XDA owner id say get it !!!!

Notable Software : VNC, Pocket Putty, Skype, Office, Mortplayer, Media Player, Opera PPC and a shed load of other software which just make life easier

Try the Trion Tho (400MHz 64Mb Ram)... QWERTY Keyb is a large bonus LINK

Or The Orbit (201Mhz 64Mb Ram).. GPS LINK

Argon is 400/128

take a look @ the indepth specs this is usually a gd site http://www.pdadb.net/

and IMHO WM5 is the best PDA OS out there

XDAs are meant to be awesome little things. Came within a hair of getting one mehself when the Orbit suddenly dis-appeared >.< They did bundle some navigation stuff with it also.

The XDAs are a little fragile, the P1i is a way off yet and pricey.

I've had a P800, P900, P910i and now a P990i.

The P990i has had a lot of bad reviews and does have its problems but I'm very pleased with mine.

I've seena few battered XDA's and ours at work seem to do pretty well actually so I'm leaning to those at the moment

I don't know if you get them in the UK, but the Motorola Q seems really cool, and has a qwerty keyboard.

Problem solved by getting XMS's Dell Axim

Might wait for the Sony Ericsson P1 and get that on contract though as I have not seen one phone I actually want

I hate phones, always break them, always buy the one with the best features and never use any of them, if only I could get hold of that old Nokia with the stubby aerial again, I'd be happy, you could chuck that off a cliff and it'd still work
