Compare Nokia 9500 with O2XDA IIs or Treo 650

Dear Friends,
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

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.

Question not about cellphones

I know this is unrelated to the Nokia 9500, but the people on this forum seem to know a lot about new technology.

What is the best laptop computer available these days?

Got it and there are a couple of let downs

Many things I love about this phone. Two I don't
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?

Is the 9500's performance any good for ssh sessions?

(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But I've heard some say it's very slow, especially on WiFi -- that it uses an outdated processor that's underclocked.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...

Can features not on this phone be added with the Memory card?

Can you add features with the memory card? Such as Voice dial or even use the music player (built in) and add or pick-up FM radio?

If anyone knows I'd appreciate it!

Jul 5, 2005, 6:40 PM

Voice Command & Voice Dial

Did I read that this phone does not have these features? If not how do you dial from the bluetooth wireless headset?

When will Cingular have this with a plan???

Please I'm within days of being locked into a contract. I really want this phone, does anyone know when it will be available through Cingular?

Any inside info, would be appreciated!

It's officially here in the US

I just got the email from Nokia and the 9500 is officially released in the US although the specifications on their web site indicate it uses the same communication bands as the eurasian version (900/1800/1900). I still haven't found it marketed together with a plan from T-Mobile(US), Verizon, etc. If you see a link to get both the phone and a plan together, please submit the link.

MS Outlook 2003 Catagories in Tasks

Can anyone tell me if the 9500 can handle the full suite of MS Outlook 2003 functions? I particular I need to know if it can display and sort Catagories in Tasks, or if there is third party software that can handle it. Thanks.

I know a small place in Chicago that sells brand new phones, you find overseas, it's called "Overseas Electronics." I would love to get a hold of one of these babies early.

When, 850Mhz, American Version? When? Hello! Crying or Very sad

Good Buy?

So I'm seriously considering pulling the trigger on this one - but my inexperience with GSM Unlocked technology has me a little nervous...

Two concerns:

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 Rolling Eyes ) 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 ...

Feature test

Does anyone know where the euro version of the 9500 can be purchased AND tried with a provider with return priviledges? I need to read email with GIF/JPG/TIF attachments containing numerical data. Had trouble with the IPAQ and T-Mobile would not support/troubleshoot the software they sent with the unit. Before investing this much in a phone, it would be nice to make sure everything works as promised by both the unit and service provider.

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.

You know what makes me mad. You can buy this phone with a contract from companies like voodafone and tmobile(europe) for around $350USD. I've seen on this forum that we won't get the phone from a carrier. Why not and why so in europe?

Cellphone GIANT from Finland

Nokia (Finland) invented the cellphones,and always will be step or two ahead other brandnames. This phone speak for itselfs....

Prices fall!!!

It seems that as more and more smart phones are released and available the prices continue to plunge on these. Granted they are by far the superior choice but attractive prices on comparable smaller phones will drive them even lower. IF you can wait awhile! Rolling Eyes
