That does look might attractive due to the pricing.I guess they are pushing these devices more and more out in the public, and as I recall an article back in Jan of this year it said that by the year 2006 there will be an increase of PDA/Phone users by about 30%. Now thats mighty impressive growth and I am sure PDA makers are looking to reduce the size and weight as the technology gets better. That is an impressive write up and kudos to you.Please keep up the good work as I am looking forward to reading all the "juicy" reports of new emerging "converged devices".

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..

Yes, you can just put your T-Mobile SIM in an unlocked phone and it will work. You will have to enter your own GPRS data connection settings (settings provided by the T-Mobile web site) since the phone won't come pre-configured for your GPRS carrier. But voice calls will work without any configuration!

The iPAQ 6300 will be $499 with new activation, and probably $599 if you're an existing customer whose contract isn't about to expire.
