Please help - need to decide on a PDA/smartphone
      #28384 - 08/29/07 12:30 AM

I am in the market looking to buy a smartphone. My needs are:
- Quad Band
- Wifi
- GPS (atleast i would prefer)
- Windows/palm preffered, symbian would also work.
- Voip capabilities

Here are the choices i am evaluating:
Hp Ipaq hw 6945
HTC Vox S710
Nokia N95
Nokia E90

My budget is around $500+-100

I am also thinking about an option of a Treo 755p with sprint service as the data plan is the cheapest with sprint.

Please guide which one i should buy.
Thanks

The Nokia E90 and N95 might be priced a bit high for your budget, and if you're in the US, the GPS software/mapping isn't the best. You might also want to check out the E-TEN Glofiish X500 and X500+ (both reviewed on our site). They have GPS, are Skype-friendly, quad band with EDGE and WiFi.

Thanks for your input but i did check out the phone as suggested.
I would really want an integated keypad on the phone.
What would be your take on IPAQ hw6945 or HTC S710?

Appreciate your help.

I like the S710 quite a bit. But there is the added price of buying GPS to use with it. It has great phone ergonomics and the cleverly integrated keyboard is very usable (unless you have quite large fingers).

The iPAQ is pretty old, and that makes it a bit harder to recommend.


E-TEN also makes a keyboarded model, the M700: http://www.mobiletechreview.com/phones/E-TEN-Glofiish-M700.htm . It has a slider design similar to the S710 and Cingular 8525.
