Verizon XV6700

MobileTechReview do a characteristically deep and detailed review of the Verizon XV6700.

Windows Mobile Pocket PC phones have come a long way, as has Verizon. The phone is compact, has a great slide-out keyboard, a fast cpu and plenty of RAM. EVDO makes this device sing, and once you try it, you'll be addicted to fast email downloads and zippy web browsing. Though not a true desktop experience, Internet Explorer Mobile beats feature phone browsers hands down and is faster than the Palm OS Blazer web browser used on the Treo. Third party alternatives such as NetFront 3.3 and Opera 8.5 (both tested in beta versions on the XV6700) work well too. . . web browser choice is a good thing. Messaging does a great job with POP, IMAP and Exchange email and it can check mail on a schedule if you like. WiFi is great for those not in an EVDO area and for those who don't wish to spend the money on a data plan. Bluetooth range and reliability are good, something that we couldn't say of 1st and 2nd generation Pocket PC phones. If you're a power user, this phone is a great choice.

Windows Mobile 5 makes improvements that make this a smarter smartphone and the slide out keyboard is the most usable built-in set of keys on any PDA yet. The camera is amazing for such a device as well.

Same old Verizon story, DUN profile removed from Bluetooth, Wi-Fi deactivates phone voice use (though thereís an easy registry hack to stop that,) battery life, and a plain and simple crappy speaker.

The Bottom Line
Now that Verizon has been removing the DUN Bluetooth profile for a year, most are use to it. So thatís not a huge disadvantage but the poor battery and speaker may be. If youíre looking mainly for a strong Windows Mobile unit with a phone youíll use less than a stock broker on Wall Street, youíll enjoy this smartphone, then.
