Whoa - convergence is cool! PDA+Phone!

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Jeff Rader, Aug 23, 2002.

  1. I am the proud owner of a T-Mobile PDA. It’s an integrated Pocket PC/phone combo. Granted, it’s a little big for a phone, but that is easily overlooked with how easily it integrates phone functions with Outlook. I can get emails from both my company’s server and my own accounts, do instant messaging and - maybe the best part – surf Talkbass anywhere and anytime I want!

    This replaced my Palm i705. It’s not as wide as the Palm and about the same height and thickness. It’s actually very comfortable to use.

    I just might be able to leave my PC in the office when I travel. That will just rock!

    Here’s a pic.

    If I can ask, what's the going rate for the hardware? And for service?
  4. Does it have the traditional solitaire??? :p


  5. Comp USA has it for $549 if you get the service a the same time. The rates are the same as my old ATT voice only account.

    Yes. It has the traditional Solitare! :D

    I've got this one.


    Not quite as cool as yours, but I couldn't get by without it. I hated having to carry a Palm and a cellphone everywhere. Problem solved a few months back when I bought this baby.
