New Toy

Geek prevails!  I’ve purchased a new PDA/phone – the Verizon XV6700

After owning an IPAQ 3870 for longest time it’s was about time that I upgraded to a modern PDA that runs Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.  Because this beauty integrates a cell phone I no longer have carry around two devices.  This little box of tricks has everything in it -:

* Bluetooth
* Wifi
* EVDO (with data plan)
* Infra-Red
* 1.3 Megapixel Camera
* Mini-SD
* WM2005 OS – Full Version, not Smart Phone ed.
* 64MB RAM/128mb Flash
* Slide out keyboard

Since I’m cheap I didn’t sign up for Verizon’s unlimited data plan, nor the 5MB or 10MB plan.  Instead I signed up for the “per KB plan (about $15 per MB) knowing I would never use it (Verizon insists that customers have some sort of data plan with this device).  In fact I deleted the dial-up profile from my device in case an application should try connecting to the Internet without me knowing.  So far I’ve been quite content with Wifi in the office and home.

    Cool! đŸ™‚

    Will you plan to write some program on it, e.g. to show traffic information?
