hw6945 vs HTC 8525 or Treo 750

by DaveyBoy    Nov 3, 2006, 2:45 AM

I just coughed up $750+ on an unlocked HP 6945 plus accidental damage extended 3yr warranty. She is currently w/ Cingular and has a Treo 650 which now is on its last leg. Unfortunately for her or me Cingular does not insure a phone which will set you back $400+ which is silly to me. My dilemma here was that I wanted to get her a 3G phone since they have towers in Philly. The 750 doesn’t have WiFi unless you spend $130 for a WiFi card. I put Skype on her phone so she could make affordable international calls. However, the 750 can’t make the calls b/c the processor is lower than 400 MHz. Plus, no warranty and she never wants to go back b/c to Palm. The phone was basically a year and a day old before she started having major problems! The HTC 8525 is everything you could ask for besides no GPS (which she’ll never use anyway) and the major killer is no warranty. If the HP had 3G I wouldn’t even be putting up this post. However, they could have given the device 128MB RAM instead of the 64MB (45 MB user available). I use DUN on my e815 to my HP iPAQ hx4700 (greatest mobile device I ever had) and my speeds are fantastic w/ EVDO. I used EDGE before and it wasn’t a great experience. I love HP and the experiences I’ve had w/ customer service are great (i.e., they don’t outsource customer service to India…Palm). I can’t justify putting that much money and time in a phone w/out some kind of insurance or warranty. I figure if she wants 3G that bad she can switch over to Verizon and get herself a XV6700. Most likely I will just have to cough another chunk when HP releases a 3G version. Thank you HP! Mad
