    my flatmate has one of those O2 ones...she loves it...but if u ask me, its too much for her since she aint a tecchie person...lol...I guess she wanted it for the looks and the fact she can get on MSN on the move (and she hardly does anyway) so her dad just wasted roughly £200 for nothing...but if its wot you want mate go for it...

    just my 2 pennies worth........

    STAY AWAY FROM NOKIA N80!!!!! I had one its rubbish i think the symbiam os is slow in general so it quickly gets frustrating to use. Got rid of that as soon as I could.

    Yeah, the 02 one is supposed to be really good - not sure what the offers are like, but would prob get Sat Nav seperately.

    Looks a bit like T-Mobile MDA Compact III...

    Got the Samsung E900 recently. Completely out of character, but was fed up with having massive phones.

    I've had two PDAs, and never used either of them enough to make a difference in my life, so I sold them both. I'd suspect a smart phone would be similiar, as I don't need my phone for much more than I'm already using it for: making calls.

    I have a PDA for work purposes, (O2 XDA Exec), and found them to be good to play around with for a day, then of very little use.

    If you will really use it day in, day out, then they can be very useful. If not, they're bulky, expensive, and frustating to use!

    I have a SPV C600 and I wouldn't give it away free it's that crap but then again the company pays for it so I can't really complain too much...
