Samsung Epix vs Blackjack II
      #32848 - 03/09/09 04:33 PM

I have an excel sheet and word doc that I use several times a week. I currently store them on a USB Flash drive that I pop into whatever computer I am at. When I went to look for a new smartphone, I asked if anything had the functionality of editing Microsoft documents and was happy to learn of the Epix. The more I thought about it, I was wondering, if I wanted to edit one of the docs on a pc instead of the phone, how would I do that? Would I have to eject the micro memory, put it into a usb housing and then stick it into my pc? Can you possibly send the file via Bluetooth? Is there another way if the pc doesn't have Bluetooth? I also store PDF docs. Would I be able to look at these? Or, at least store them on the same memory device? While searching for this info, I saw that the Blackjack II is a step below and thought, why go through all the above hassle? The BJII still syncs with Outlook, etc, right? I am sooooo confused! Any help would be great!

Yes, you could use a microSD card in the Epix and put it in a card reader to use with a PC. Or you could send the file back and forth via Bluetooth if the PC has Bluetooth. The Epix can display PDFs as well.

The BlackJack II runs a somewhat different version of Windows Mobile-- the version for non-touch screen devices. It has a slower CPU and the built-in MS Office suite has fewer features (the non-touch screen Windows Mobile phones are designed for viewing docs while the touch screen Windows Mobile ones are intended for folks who want to create and edit Office docs).
