That is a bit outside of my budget.

Default Sony M600i

Boy Genius--thanks for the great information. I was wondering if you have had a chance to test the Sony M600i or have any insider information you can share about it? Sorry if I'm straying too far off topic.

Thanks again

Have seen the physical Q today -- nice touch pad and layout. Very slim, too. The joy-stick is something nice to have. Screen is not proportional to its size, meaning, too small.

I have not had a chance to mess around the SE W600i sorry, if I do come across it I will definatly post here first. See I don't like the keyboard on the Q at all, its too stiff, and plastic-ey. I actually like the screen for some reason, I guess because its 320x240 and not 240x320 like other smartphones.

Please! Please! Please! Do NOT buy from Celluloco. It's one guy literally and he is notorious for selling things without EVER having them. There is NO working GSM Q. Not even motorola has one! Do not buy please! He is not even smart he doesn't have one live picture, such a scam

I've never bought from him, and don't plan to, but I browse the site for comparison, and just happened to see that, so I thought I'd share.

Thanks for the confirmation that he's a turd though.

I sell the w600i, so I can give you my opinion.

1. The swivel in my opinion would just get on my nerves.
2. Good battery life, but could always be better. For instance, the sony ericsson z520a has a 12 hour talk time.
3. Camera is nice, but I think it was better on the Sony S710. It does have several different settings, including night shot and more
4. Has MP3 song support. Better than the Itunes format, because I view a particular format limiting to the device
5. I have seen a couple of swivel tops come completely off.
6. Bluetooth and Infared capabilities.


This device is not bad overall, but to me, is not really worth the money as I am big on PDA devices. It might be nice for someone who wants a nice phone with a good digital camera. Beyond that, I dont think that I would use it for anything more.

Next one I think I will get is a V3x. I played with it in Singapore, and it's got the operating system like the CDMA motos, not the GSM, which is pretty cool. UMTS 2100 won't do me any good here, but it sure will when I'm in Japan and Europe. Unfortunately my only UMTS phone right now is the Nokia 6630, which is too much of a brick for travel.

Default question for The Genius

Genius- you certainly are a wealth of knowledge and i mean that without any sarcasm. I have been reading some of the forums that you are involved in and have noticed that you recenty said you deal with with high profile clients. Is this how you come across your information or do you actually locate these phones, pda's and blackberry's before they are released for thses clients?? Purely curious and thanks for all the great scoop!!!

V3x is a great phone, OS is very similar to the regular RAZR, menus are exactly the same just minor cosmetic differences. Just watch out if you need 850Mhz, although there are a couple 850Mhz V3xs floating around...

I think you may have the V3x confused with the V3i...

The V3x is primarily a UMTS phone for the 3 network. It's OS is almost exactly like the one found on the E815, V710, and other Motorola CDMA 1X-EVDO phones, not like the GSM OS found on the V3, V3i, SLVR, L6, etc.

Ok... When I played with it in Singapore (which was less than a month ago), I was reminded more of my cousin's E815 than my L6, V80 or V3. I guess I'll have to get one and check again. LOL

BTW, the DG V3i is really fresh. I'm quite envious. You definitely set the bar as far as mobiles go.

I've already seen an OEM Moto gold faceplate kit for the V3i. Can't remember where though.

Just out of curiousity, have you ever had any dealings with myworldphone.com? I don't find many reviews on them on HoFo.

Default SE M600i

This handheld will eventually support BB Connect and has a lot of features including touch screen, expandable memory slot, Jog Dial navigation, full QWERTY keyboard a la the 71XX BB, and runs on the latest Symbian OS

See the phone here:

Looks like SE is the latest vulture hovering over the post-NTP injured RIM.

Thanks in advance.
