To my delight when i got back to the office after my holiday a nice new i-Mate Smartphone 2 was sitting there!
After having used it for a few days now i am pretty happy with it. One annoying thing is when it is docked it keeps asking if i want to use the pass through connection. Not sure why … but if anyone knows how to solve this please tell me!
Other than that it is a really great device. Not sure it will stand up to the same punishment that my old Nokia 6310 did … but then again it does to a WHOLE lot more.
I never really got into the whole PDA thing. To big and bulky. Fine when you are working .. but a pain in a ass when you are out and about on the weekend etc… So the PDA in a phone thing is doing it for me big time. I never really was a big composer of email while on the go … and so the lack of stylus and touch screen is really not that big of a deal for me. Reading email, calendar and contacts is the biggest thing …. and having it all sync with Exchange Active Sync RULES!
No more phone and PDA … or PDA sized phone …. i love the fact that it is only slightly fatter than my 6310 … but packs all the punch of the Pocket PC.
