Sprint today announced the Audiovox PPC-6600 series of high-end PDA phones. The devices are the CDMA versions of the HTC "Blue Angel" for GSM networks, marketed as the MDA III, xda IIs, i-mate PDA2k, and Siemens SX66. Like its GSM cousins, the PPC-6600 includes Misrosoft's new Windows Mobile for Pocket PC 2003 Phone Edition. Features include a sliding keyboard, large touchscreen, Bluetooth, and a removable battery. The PPC-6601 will be available early next month exclusively to Sprint business customers, while the PPC-6600, which adds a VGA camera, will be available by the end of the year to all customers.

re: bluetooth& WiFI

I've heard that Sprint has heard a lot of complaints regarding the bluetooth crippling issue, and they issued a statement saying they will not cripple this device. Also they will provide a software patch for the Treo 650 to enable bt dialup. If true, then they deserve credit for reversing a truly stupid decision. Who wants to pay more than $600 for an intentionally crippled device? Not me. Now my question about the audiovox/blue angel/harrier is why no WiFi? That was another truly stupid decision. I really don't care what the justification is. I don't want to hear it! I really despise being told that I should settle for a stripped down version of anything. If that's what I ask for, fine but don't tell me I don't need it.

"PCC 6601" - almost like the chip in the very first Power Mac 😉
