    Audiovox PPC6601: lowest SAR rating!

    Another great reason to get out there and get one of these as your next phone.

    Cool.. now that we're using 100x more often then a normal phone, we're only at 10x the risk.

    uh oh... bad news?

    i might have some bad news y'all...

    i was very pleased to see it as having the lowest sar with all this talk about cellphones giving you cancer and whatnot..

    but turn out it's sar is .12 for digital but much higher at 1.3 for analog and it's my understanding both sprint and verizon are analog....but i'll be the first to admit i'm very "ignunt" when it comes to the nuts and bolts of wireless telecommunications

    check it out:

    Very Interesting

    I understand the concept of SAR being from a communications background, but I don't understand what they are relating to as Analog SAR in this case.

    The PPC 6600 and 6601 don't have analog tranceivers (radios), they use digital service only (one of the largest Cons IMHO).

    nowinjustfun, none of these phones have analog bands integrated in them. They are strictly digital tri-band phones. The GSM version, SX66, is a quad, band but no analog either.

    so am i way off in thinking for some reason that cdma was analog?

    how can the ppc6600 support sprint cdma if not analog capable... lol, i'm probably just asking thing that are way over my head...

    and furthermore, then what is C/net talking about when they have one column for digital and one column for analog, both referring to the ppc660x

    Yes, you are way off when referring to cdma as analog. It is strictly digital. Now, both carriers have roaming agreements with analog carriers, but cdma operates in the digital domain.

    Did not see anything about analog in the cnet article. Didn't look hard either though.

    Great! Thanks for the information, I've been using a treo 600, treo 650, and a ppc-6601 for work; all this info is great to know.

    I'm thinking about the 6600 for my own personal use, I just cannot be without a device; it keeps me so organized.

    Looks like our devices are still at the top (or rather the bottom) of the heap.

    Not sure how important this is since most of us use BT headsets.

    We may use BT Headsets, but a lot of us wear the phone on our hip by way of carrying case. It's just radiating all day!!!
