Does it need to be plugged in via Ethernet or could I use the wireless connect to connect to the microcell?

I am at 82% so far. Last time on the charger was 5 PM yesterday (Saturday) but I haven't had a lot of use this weekend.

I would have thought browser, or superior hardware, but easier response to an email?

What do you see specifically about the 9800 that puts the 9700 to shame, if you don't mind, as I am looking at the 9800, but still love my 9700.
I like the smaller size of the 9800 as compared to my old 9000. Also seems to run a bit faster. And battery life has shown to be better so far on the 9800.

I use a long ethernet cable, but I believe someone else said they used a wireless solution.

Yes--- the GPS light is on. It is not within line of sight of a window, but it is on and it is working. I don't think it worked before the light came on. It took about an hour and a half for the activation to occur, but it has been operational since--- a few months now, every since I bought it, and it raised my coverage from 'SOS' no bars to 5 solid bars.

Ok so that means you're able to acquire a gps link from your location. Dubdub, I guess it depends if you're going to be able to get a signal from where you want to put the unit.
