i'll have to remember this when i receive my new corporate 700w. nick - are you pleased with the performance of the 700w? have you tried the SDIO wi-fi card or is Verizon's EVDO service fast enough?
Yeah, just like SMEG said, the EVDO is pretty fast, at least on downloads.
Yeah, I sometimes think that a WIFI option would be cool, as I would be able to surf and talk at the same time, but then again, how often would I do that.
I also think that WiFi would be cool when I was playing with my phone at home, etc, but honestly other than saving battery life, I'm really not sure what the advantage would be.
As to the performance, yes, I'm getting used to it.
The first day I had it working with my Exchange server doing Exchange ActiveSync; I killed the battery in about 6 hours. But I had it syncing every 5 minutes, and was in a bad coverage area.
I have since changed it to sync every 15 minutes, and the battery lasts almost all day.
The battery life is the thing that concerns me most, and I have made a point of plugging in a car charger, and plugging in my phone every time I get into my car.
The phone has been pretty reliable, but when the battery has been low, I think I've turned off the phone by mistake. Then again, I did the same thing with my RazR, so there you go.
The cubis game is very addictive.
Honestly, the best thing I like about any MS phone is the fact that I can sync to my Exchange server over the air.
I had an MPX220 before this, and the Treo700w certainly works better.
Size wise, it's a little large, but again, I'm getting used to that.
I'd be very interested to see if I'll want to switch to the Q when that comes out, right now this thing is just working.
Oh, quick update.
I got a phone call this evening from one of my customers who needed to shut down their windows server as there was a scheduled power outage in their building in a few hours. After I hung up with him, i use the Terminal Server application to remote into his server and shut it down. How cool was that?!
There has been a bit of a learning curve with this phone, while I learn what keys do what, but I'm getting used to it, so there you go.
