All In One Smartphone PDA MP3 Video Ebook Reader – Which to get?
i currently have the palm treo 755p with lots of applications to do many of these things above, but i want it more “supped up” and more powerful processor for game emulation, speed, better camera, etc… its just a few years old technology..
Im looking for a smartphone that is ALL IN ONE… I want it to be able to be an mp3 player w bluetooth, pda, play movies via large GB SDHC memory cards, a good basic camera w 5mp at least, pdf jpeg ebook reader would be nice. Wifi would be great as well. I was looking at the samsung omnia, palm pre, palm treo pro, htc tough pro, nokia n series (not sure which is the latest n series). unlocked is a good idea, but im not under contract with any provider so I can switch to anything. These are just the ones I know of…im sure there is more to choose from…
thanks for your help in pointing me in the right direction
I'd go with HTC. I've got a universal(ppc) and a vox(smartphone) and they both do just about the same things. Vox is a little under powered but still manages emulation ok
iPod Touch vs iPhone?
OK! I know this question has been asked, but my question has a different spin. I have a nice Blackberry, so I don't need a phone. Therefore I want a touch. BUT the phone has more features (eg: CAMERA). SOOooo… Is it possible to just buy an iPhone and not have phone service linked to it (not use it as a phone, just an mp3 player with a camera?) And yes, I do only have 8GB of stuff, so don't give me the “16GB touch instead of phone”
Also, does the phone have WiFi?
You cannot use the iPhone without activating it with a service.
What smartphone should I buy?
I want a nice and fast browser, WiFi, GPS, a good camera with video capture and a fast and stable OS, mp3 player,Java, lots of nice FREE apps, sexy design, good battery life. Up to $500.
You did not say which provider you use, so I'm going to assume that you want an unlocked phone (for use with AT&T Wireless or T-Mobile).
Once you start talking about a good camera PLUS smartphone capabilites it immediately narrows the field quite a bit. The combination of the factors you mention will probably lead you in the direction of a Nokia N-Series device (e.g. N95, N85, N79). Among these, I would get the N85, as it is both newer and “sexier” than the older N95.
There is also the E71 (or AT&T's branded version of it, E71x). The camera is not quite the same – in particular, pictures from the unlocked E71 tend to be a bit blurry. However, unlike the current N-Series phones, it does have a QWERTY keypad. The E75 should also be out shortly.
Check out the “unlocked phones” category on Amazon, and read the reviews.

HTC Desire v Galaxy S?
I currently have a 3 year old Samsung g600 which is playing up. The signal has completely had it. I know it is the phone and not the sim as I have put my sim in a motorola and I have full signal where my phone has 0 signal. It has been playing up for about 6 months and I have just had enough.
Anyway I was wondering what people thought of the HTC Desire and the Galaxy S? I have read many reviews and each seem to take a different view on which is better. I can not afford an Iphone as though the contract is the same the Iphone has a more expensive initial cost.
I am thinking of switching from my current Virgin Mobile Liberty sim to either orange or O2 swaying towards an orange contract.
If anyone has any other suggestions? Any phones coming out in the next couple of months. I can tide myself over until the right phone is out there for me. I may also be going abroad for a while so don't really want to rope myself into a 24 months contract before I know what is happening anyway.
I would like the phone to have:
have a reasonable camera (I have a digital camera so it is not the end of the world),
a qwerty keyboard – whether that be touchscreen or physical format,
WIFI (I travel a fair bit and my laptop it quite heavy to carry about all the time),
Reasonable battery life though I realise that with a smartphone it is likely that it will be poorer than I am use to
Sat Nav – Whether free or like with orange included in the contract (looking a panther 30 or 35)
MP3 player/ ability to watch films etc. – This phone will also be replacing my Ipod Video 5th Generation 60gb
I would select the Desire over the Galaxy. I own a Nexus One and the design of the Desire is very similar. I love HTC phones and I think they integrate Android into their designs batter than any other manufacturer.
