@iraghava - the phone is 2 mm thicker and 8 gms heavier. Not a noticable increase by any means, but its a whole 6 mm LONGER to accomodate the keyboard within the form.

No problem there Steer, I have no issues with that. I think I'm going to see when it's going to get launched & pick it up if it's reasonably priced.

Damn! There HAD to be a negative - this was hotly debated but yes the HTC final specs seem to confirm that there's not WiFi.

Its not an issue for people like me that rely more on 3G than on WiFi, but it wouldnt go down very well in Europe where you have many more Hotspots to rely on.

A latest ten thumbs down from my side for the P1i for those wanting the sony-blackberry

Was in phuket over the weekend, offsite. A senior had a P1i that seemed to be working fine in Bangkok. On arrival in Phuket, it went mad - the blackberry kept searhcing non stop for the service, to no avail. besides draining the battery, it made the phone hang. No calls could be made, BlackBerry couldn't be turned off, and besides main menu, all other applications hung.

That being said, for blackberry purposes, stick with a blackberry. I've seen both with different bosses, and blackberry does its things well. P1i is a total no go (despite god level features otherwise)

In laptop (IBM T43, Windows XP), trying to search for Bluetooth devices, but after sometime it says no device found.

However, from my mobile, I can connect with other mobiles (Nokia, Sony) through Bluetooth and can exchange files.

What could be issue?
If you can confirm that your laptop is bluetooth enabled, then the issue could be that you will probably need to configure the target bluetooth device as "discoverable" and then search for the device.

I am facing a similar issue with my PC. My PC can detect my mobile but cannot detect my headset though my mobile can !! I am wondering if some of these devices are configured to be pairable with only one device.

I am trying to connect my mobile and laptop through Bluetooth for simple file transfer between them, I am not trying to connect to internet or so. I am able to connect them through IrDA port, but not with Bluetooth.

Hmmm, there is only one setting in my mobile that is set to 'Show to all' - I hope this should take care of it.

Since T43 already comes with inbuilt Bluetooth port, I thought this is not needed.

Question atom exec. or orbit

i have viewed a lot of phones and finally shortlisted 2 devices. now i am confused on which 1 to buy?
1. o2 orbit - better sound quality, better camera, built in gps receiver
or
2. o2 atom exec. - faster processor??, flash light, stereo speakers.
i have not heard any of them play music.. how is the volume and the sound clarity in both of them?
heard that there are a lot of problems in the atom series. is it true?
which is a better phone among the two of them?
any help on this front will be highly appreciated. thanks in advance. hdp

Two things:

1. Why do you want to go in for a windows mobile 5.0 device when the 6.0 devices would soon be made available?
2. If you are decided on O2 have you looked at Flame?

And one last thing: Check out the new range for iMate. Awesome devices.

The Exec definitely has the faster of the two processors and from what I have heard is a better performance PDA. Sound quality and all only a user can confirm but I doubt that there will be substantial difference between the two.
