It's a handy option to have if one is on a tight budget.
But you do get what you pay for. . . the small, non-transflective display that has only 12 instead of 16 bit color, a slow processor, weak RF. These are tradeoffs. But at least it has four buttons and a d-pad, unlike the also affordable Audiovox PPC4100 from AT&T! Equus, when you used the Audiovox, did you find it was harder to operate, esp. one-handed, with no directional pad?
Yes..it was very hard to use,especially while driving without the D-Pad...I am sure there will be some accessories arriving for that soon that might help that concern. You definitely cannot drive and use the 4100..may be they figured a cheap-skate like me cannot afford a car but ride the city transit bus and still want this PDA/Phone and have that certain "look"!!! No I did not say that,... sorry..
