    Post Opinion: What do you use your 660x for the most?

    Do you use it as a PDA the most? If so, what 1 program do you use the most and wouldn't be without?

    Or, do you use it as a phone the most? If so, do you use speed dialing programs or the like?

    I use my ppc6600 mainly for data, to stay in touch via email and for news. Secondary usage would be as a pda and my least used feature is the phone although I do demand at least a decent phone when I do use it. The 6600 has fulfilled these purposes admirably.

    Check email (ProfiMail), Internet (PIE), Phone, read ebooks (eReader), diet control (Personal Health). I use the stock PIM daily as well.

    The list above is what I use it for every day. There are a host of other things I do with it, but not daily. I am very pleased with the PPC 6600 and have had no problems with it. Only thing is I wish it did not have the keyboard. I am a long time Pocket PC user and can enter text faster on the screen than messing with that keyboard.

    Oh, one thing I forgot, Audiblebooks. When I travel I use it to listen to books when flying. I find that I can close my eyes and listen to a book and the time flies by (no pun intended) as opposed to sitting and trying to read or worse, just kill time during a flight.

    I get my books from Audible Books at http://www.audiblebooks.com. Decent selection, lots of subject matter. You just use their audible software on your 6600 and you can listen either via earphone or through the car speaker.

    Well we know this is a lie, one way or another. If you command the nation's nuclear arsenal with yours that would make your G.W. Bush and we all know that he isn't bright enough to handle a converged device. And besides that you spelled nuclear correctly and he would have spelled it "nuculear".
