Compare Nokia 9500 with O2XDA IIs or Treo 650
I'm new to this forum, and recently I booked Nokia 9500. I am expecting to get the delivery by the end of this week.
But, now I'm little confuse, did I selected the best phone as of 2day, as we have 3 other phones which are leading now, such as
O2 XDA IIs
Sony Ericson P910
Palm Treo 650
I request if any of you have a complete comparisons between the above models.
Your early response will be highly appreciated.
Got it and there are a couple of let downs
are as follows: You can not use the speaker phone when the phone is closed. It goes on when you place the call and then open up the PDA.
That could be useful, however, I still use the speaker while driving, when I'm on hold and opening the phone at that time is awkward.
Secondly, you cannot turn off the PDA - you have to remove the battery. The phone portions turns on and off just fine. But the PDA is always on.
I called Nokia on this and they confirmed that it's just the way the phone works.
Still playing with it - so I'm sure to figure out more in the next few days.
If anyone has suggestions on how to patch these problems - let me know !
Is performance any good for ssh?
(I know there are ssh clients like putty available -- that's not what I'm asking.)
I program in Unix/Linux and need to be able to log in and do work or read email on the remote side. I'll be doing this more than I'll be using the phone for voice. I do a lot of text typing. I don't care about multimedia (mp3, camera). Hence the 9500.
But I've heard some say it's very slow, especially on WiFi -- that it uses an outdated processor that's underclocked. That web pages take minutes to load instead of seconds, even on WiFi.
Is that true? Is this machine too slow? I'm surprised its price hasn't gone down since it was introduced in the U.S. market, because except for its larger keyboard...

It's a bloody shame....
That this device is not available on Verizon's EvDO network....
It's officially here in the US
Should I get the nokia 9500 or Nokia 9300? - Tough one
I found retailer in NY offering the 9500 for a good $150 less than their nearest competitor - and $200 less that their own price if you get it without service - (though they say the device remains unlocked). Must be nasty contract requirements so I ran away.
Anyone else's experience(s)?
Unless someone wiser (not hard to find ) warns me off - I'm likely going to purchase this phone from one of PhoneScoop's sponsor-sites, then go to a T-Mobile kiosk in the local mall (I'm told their GSM 900MHz coverage area is best) - sign for the shortest-term contract I can ...
Also, why the delay in getting this unit in the US? This phone has the potential for a lock on the business traveler that needs data connections. I would love to put the phone through its paces.
