HTC Apache / PPC-6700 Pocket PC Phone Edition

In September 2005, my daily driver PDA was an HP iPAQ hx-4700 and my mobile phone was the Samsung i550, a Palm OS device that was never technically released in the US. I thought that I was satisfied with the combination of the two devices – enjoying the best of both PDA worlds in a …

i-mate K-JAM HTC Wizard Pocket PC Phone

When I bought my O2 XDA II Mini in February this year, I thought “Now this device will be a keeper for at least a year”. How silly of me. As soon as I started reading about the HTC Universal, I knew that was going to change. A device that had a built-in keyboard, WiFi …

The Treo 650 (Can a Smart Phone Become My Main Brain?) Article

Updated 05/12/2005 Background: I’ve never been a mobile phone junkie, but I’ve been wanting a new phone pretty much since the day I upgraded to the Motorola T720 a year ago. I quickly came to the realization that I didn’t like flip phones at all. When the phone would ring while I was driving, I …

Nokia 9500 Mobile Phone Review

Motorola V400/V500 Mobile Phone Review

I had a lot of trepidation regarding the Motorola V500, the first time I saw it. Maybe it was the darkening Singapore shopping mall around me, at half-past closing time. Maybe it was the pushy sales clerk who alternately badgered and begged me to hand over my money. Maybe it was because I’d never heard …

Samsung E700 Mobile Phone Review

I have had a few camera phones already, but none of them had a reasonably good integrated camera that delivers fair picture quality.

Samsung SGH-S300 GSM Mobile Phone Review

I have to admit that I am addicted to mobile phones. In the past year I owned a Sony Ericsson T68i, Sony Ericsson T300, Samsung S100, Samsung T100, Siemens S55 and last but not least a Nokia 3650. Somehow none of the phones really satisfied my needs. Either the screen was great but it drained …
