First, please accept my apologies for being away for so long. I took some vacation (okay, a lot of vacation days) and training. Rest of the time was spent frantically catching up. I’ll be taking nearly all December off, so happy holidays.
I figured I’d write about some cool devices before taking off. This is not a comprehensive list by any means. I was told there are 100+ Windows Mobile devices out there. Just a few :-
T-Mobile Dash / HTC s620
T-Mobile Dash, also known as HTC s620 in some markets, comes with 64MB memory, microSD expansion (those things are tiny), 1.3 mega pixel camera and a large 2.4″ color screen. It’s got it all: quad-band, Wifi, bluetooth…you name it. And yes, it does have Windows Mobile 5.0 with Messaging and Security Feature Pack (always-up-to-date e-mails baby).
Cingular 8525 / HTC TyTN
This UMTS device also has GSM / GPRS / Edge connectivity, as well as WiFi, Bluetooth and mini USB. Better camera (2 mp) with flashlight only sweatens the deal. Oh, and did I say it has 128 MB ROM and 64MB SDRAM?
Cingular 3125 – HTC STARTrk
Now to clamshell (flip) phone lovers, Christmas came early this year for clamshell lovers.
Cingular Blackjack (US) / Samsung SGH i607 (elsewhere)
Wow! And you thought Moto-Q was cool. Similar to HTC Dash, it’s a wide-screen Smartphone device with full QWERTY key board. Vodaphone, TIM and Bouygues carry it in Europe and Singular in the US. It’s also sold unlocked. They said it was the thinnest and smallest Windows Mobile device yet to ship with a full QWERTY keyboard. I haven’t had my hands on it yet, so I can’t judge.
O2 XDA Stealth
It seems that this baby is for Eruope only for now. It does have a touch screen and slide-out keyboard.
Pharos GPS phones
There are also some cool GPS devices. Check out Pharos PPC 525e and Pharos PPC 600e.
Finally there’s always Moto-Q and Palm Treo devices. Oh there are so many others. This was a good year. No, scratch that. This was a great year!
