Same as AnexTEK SP230

I just got the AnexTEK SP230 and use it with T-Mobile's service. The AnexTEK SP230 is the same device as the Audiovox. I don't know if the Audiovox has the additional keyboard attachment but this is a nice addition. But it has two flaws.

1) No command button. This actually goes against the PPC spec and really shouldn't be allowed to have the PPC logo. The logo requirements require the device to have a least one command button.

2) No WiFi. In my mind, this really hinders the device.

Fix the two flaws above and I believe this will be one of the best PDA phones available.

In my opinion it's a good phone all around. Good signal, the included keyboard attachment seems to funnel your voice towards the mic and people on the other end have reported great clarity. Don't like that I can't seem to find accessories for it yet (e.g. battery, travel charger) but I'm sure that problem will be fixed soon.

Yes and no. This new Audiovox has GSM 850, which is crucial for AT&T and Cingular.

Oh, so I guess the specs on this site are wrong? Wonder why they didn't build a quad-band phone like the upcoming iPaq 6315?

No... Confused The specs here are correct.

800 = 850, if that's what you mean. They're two names for the same frequency band.

So what I'm saying is that the AnexTEK SP230 is tri-band GSM including the 900 band, while the Audiovox 4100 has the 800 (850) band instead.
