The Audiovox offered by Sprint is definitely a "killer" Pocket PC phone. It and its variants are the fastest models currently on the market and offer the most RAM. The unit builds on the strong XDA II platform which was never offered by US carriers but enjoyed great success overseas and with US importers. Unlike the GSM XDA II, the PPC-6601 is a CDMA network device with support for 1xRTT for data and EVDO when Sprint makes that very fast data service available. If youre looking for a convergence device and want the best possible Pocket PC performance, put this Sprint offering on your short list.
The PPC-6601 is a Pocket PC first, and a phone second. The same can be said of all Pocket PC Phone Edition models such as the HP iPAQ 6315, XDA II and the Samsung i700. They look, feel and act like Pocket PCs and indeed are full-fledged Pocket PCs with no concessions made. Add a mobile phone radio and phone software and youve got a Pocket PC Phone Edition model. Pocket PC phones support all mobile phone features such as speed dialing, conference calling, caller ID and speakerphone and use an on-screen dialer for making calls. What are the tradeoffs? Unlike petite cell phones, Pocket PC phones are large and since they were designed to be PDAs first, their ergonomics are geared towards PDA use rather than cell phone use. Not that theyre uncomfortable to use, but if you dont like the idea of holding a Pocket PC to your head, consider using a Bluetooth headset or purchasing another breed of smartphone. However, if youre already carrying both a PDA and cell phone and need a full-featured PDA, then a Pocket PC Phone can lighten your load.
