Cingular has announced its 8100/8125 phones (aka the HTC Wizard, O2 Xda Mini S, Orange SPV M3000, Qtek 9100 or K-Jam). According to an Engadget posting, the same underlying phone (MDA) is expected to be released shortly by T-mobile. The specs are impressive (alghough no GPS) but a few commentators who have played with the phone (known as the Mini-XDA in the UK) have posted remarks that raise a concern about its stability. Guess I’ll have to monitor the forums before making a purchasing decision.
According to the information posted on the IMATE site, the phone’s software includes support for using it as a wireless modem with IR, USB or Bluetooth. Running Skype on this phone (on Wi-Fi only) is apparently enhanced by overclocking it to 240 mhz using Overclock.
This device, along with the HP IPAQ hw6900, are tied on my list to replace my existing smartphone.
