"Amazing product but Sprint may be it's downfall"3.5 starson by mad_dog_2u
Pros: Good things like multitasking, good visuals, physical keyboard and what not.
Cons: No video, voice dialing and task & memo custom categorization (at least it wasn't clear if you can do that)
Summary: I went and looked at the device. It's a good PDA that has retained it's useful feature like tasks and memos (although I didn't see any categorization options for tasks or memos other than High Medium and Low priority. Loved the feel of it in my palm (no pun intended).
But Ughhh I urge people to be VERY VERY careful about the Sprint contracts and it's pricing deception tactics (especially old customers). Sprint's shady pricing tactics may be the downfall of this device. Sprint claims to offer the device at a price of $199 after mail in rebate to new customers. Turns out that new customers end up paying a little over $250. For old customers (like myself) who get $150 off on upgrades, Sprint makes you pay exactly the same as the new customers!? Sprints explanation, "Sir, the cost of the device is $ 520 which brings your cost for the device to $200 after the $150 upgrade deduction and $100 rebate". How is that different from saying "SALE 10% off" after bumping up the "original" price by 20%?
Molly, I know you do the Molly rant about AT&T already. Check out Sprint, they're like the sketchy drug dealer guy at the block corner. I for one, am waiting my contract end with Sprint so I can be a free man with choices (many choices).
