Ok, I'm a gadget/phone nut and I spotted this Smartflip Smartphone awhile back and had one of those impulse purchase moments about 6 weeks ago and unlike me, this phone is near flawlessJ It's definitely survived the honeymoon period and no buyer's remorse, it's a delight and just had to blog about it!!
I reckon Windows Mobile 5 is the release that finally added the smart to the SmartPhone and the Smartflip IMHO finally adds the sizzle.
I love the industrial design of this phone, as the name implies it's a clamshell design so it closes up protecting the keypad and main screen, it is light (approx 90g), small and slips in to your pocket with ease without looking like you are pleased to see everyone!!
There are a number of incarnations of this phone from various venders including Dopod S301 and Qtek 8500. Steve's running with the Dopod S301 and likewise he loves it – think his only grumble is that it's light on main memory, but that is true of all the WM Smartphones at present...
I've installed the following software
So here's what I love about the phone?
Stuff that is good enough
So if you've not guessed I reckon this phone rocks, paid for it myself and no regrets – but as per all reviews your mileage may vary...
Hmmm, now the nice folk in marketing just gave me a JasJam to work with, looks great has every connectivity option you could imagine, 802.11g, 3G support etc. If you want to talk to me about Windows Mobile Development then drop me a line via my blog.
