Love the SX66 PPC Phone design
      #19780 - 04/22/05 03:46 AM

Currently I have a Treo 600 that I am less than pleased with mostly because it's Palm and not PPC. I saw an non-palm or ppc based phone ericcson T60 years ago that I like because it fit sideways on your belt and faced inward really hugging your belt. Universal swivel clips don't do that. The problem I have always had with palm and ppc phones is that they are so bulky and the SX66 appears as if it will be even more bulky than the treo 600 but then it has bluetooth and wifi which is really nice.

I think what I need is a PPC phone for which I can find a tightly hugging sideways belt clip that faces inward. This will take at least some of the bulkyness away and perhaps even improve signal strenght since I will no longer need to keep it in my pocket.

Does anyone know if I can do that with the Seimens SX66 found Here?

If not is there a better option?

TMobile PocketPC Phone Edition, just switched to Treo600 Palm

The SX66 is quite a bit larger than the Treo. I'm not sure that it would be comfy on your belt no matter how closely the clip held the device. If you haven't already, take a look at our review, which has both devices in a comparison photo:

If you're not afraid of imports, the iMate Jam Pocket PC phone which we'll be reviewing shortly, is quite compact and is about the same size as the Treo.
