Let me preface this by telling you I am not a totally techie person.
I like things simple and easy to understand. I need the sounds on my phone to be loud enough to hear.
However, I also need total Internet Access at all times. No I am not addicted to the Internet. I am a businesswoman who believes in returning her phone calls and emails as soon as possible.
I also need access to the Internet for different programs I use daily to conduct my Real Estate business.
With this in mind, I started searching all the different Smartphones and pda's out there. For me, I wanted an all in one solution that would efficiently handle all my tasks.
I had narrowed it down to the Blackberry Curve and the TMobile Wing.
The main differences, for me, were:
The keyboard was way too tiny for my fingers.
The blackberry did not have the same operating system as the Wing which comes with Windows Mobile 6
The Internet access was different from the way I was accustomed.
I searched online and went to a TMobile superstore. It appeared that they seemed to "push" the Blackberry. I have read many rave reviews about the Blackberry but as stated above, I had my own personal reasons for choosing the Wing.
What are the specs?
quad-band GSM/EDGE support
2.8″ touch screen display
slide-out, 40-key QWERTY keyboard
Windows Mobile 6 Professional operating system
Microsoft Office Mobile with Word, Excel, and PowerPoint,
and support for AOL, Yahoo, Windows Live and ICQ Instant messaging
Can connect to Internet email....my most important requirement!
Considered large, but great size for me!
And last but not least, the ability to write with a stylus little notes, like to do lists.
Voice recording does everything and also saves as a note. This is a great tool for someone with a poor memory!
I can now get my bpos while I am out on the road which will pay for this very quickly
Also, the total Internet access with TMobile is only $19.99!
I am very happy with my choice. I was originally looking at the IPhone cause it was pretty.
No, I am not typing this from my Wing, but I could, if I had the time. It does everything my laptop does and more!
Now I need to buy an sdmicro card for more memory
I absolutely love it and I am still figuring out the video and song download features!
