Currently retaining the iMate JAM and the A1000.

The reason I asked is that there arent many fans of the PDA Phone in India and its unusual to find a person who's been through more than one and is still stuck on to these gadgets. Most people dont have the patience.
heheh. I am a gadget freak so I keep changing my phones every now and then. I am a member on most of the mobile phone forums. treo phones are good but not better than windows pda's which is why treo is coming out with a windows treo phone 700w and then a symbian treo phone. I am currently waiting for the nokia 3250 and n91 which after siemens sx1,n-gage and sendo-x will be the best music phones.


the 3g services wont be India anytime soon. the latest speculation can be given to 2007 beginning. No use buying a 3g phone as the services in UK are not great yet and they are still developing them.

buy whatever you like.

Ever tried connecting your laptop to the net using the A1000? I cant seem to - the PDA browser works fine, but I just cant get the phone to act as a modem. I've been dying to check out Etisalat's 3G services, but am unable to do so.

Any help will be appreciated...

If you havent paid for it yet, try to hold on to the purchase for some time. The blasted thing crashes like nothing else I've seen - it crashed twice during the demo they were giving at one of the Gitex stalls. Ditto with the iMate K-JAM...I think Windows Mobile 5 has some serious memory management issues.

I have used the P 800 for about a year and currently i have the P 910i ... I havent got a chance to fully explore the K 750i ...
IMO ... p 910i is a great phone ....

Infact , I think Ericsson makes one of the best phones ... had a T 28 and then a T 29 earlier .. and I absolutely loved it ....

I like the A1000's handy design and ringtones and the camera is good in daylight. ANd P900 has an excellent set of fetaures and keypad.

A1010 and sonyericsson p950/1000 hermione is not out yet.

which have you used?and why such a question?

Sony Ericsson's new phone in the P-Series is the P990i a.k.a Hermione.
Launch dates Worldwide - Dec 2005 / Jan 2006
In the US it is called P990a.
