    Thinking of getting this nice SmartPhone on Orange...
    Anyone used it?

    It has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Full Qwerty keyboard, EDGE and more...

    Am I right in saying that it doesn't have a touch screen?

    Hey Fire - you're right! Just read some more about it...

    Hmm... I used to have a Sony Ericsson P910i - that was darn cool - but it didnt' have Wi-Fi and it was a little chunky... But it did have the touch screen!

    I've tried most devices but found the Palm 750V outshines everything else and it breaks the mould IMO being pretty old now, but still much more useful than more recent recent feature packed PDA's and smartphones.

    Just my two cents reading this post in from the pub!

    So have I :) (but in white)

    Having read up on the eeeuser.com forum, it appears that the only UK stockist with them in stock at the moment is RM.com. Technically you need to be "in education" to order from there... But apparently loads of non-"in education" people have bought without any problems.

    Bosh.

    Going back to the E650, I used one of these for about a month earlier this year (on Vodafone) while I was waiting for the Nokia E90 to come out.

    On the whole I actually enjoyed the E650, it's much better than the SPV M600 I used to have.

    The real downer on it is the lack of touchscreen, which makes web browsing a bit iffy.

    Other than that it was great - quite friendly, fits nicely in the pocket and it's ok for email.

    Ok so im a bit confused about that thing. Firstly how does it connect to the internet? Can you literally just connect out and about anywhere? No charges?

    Secondly can you get Windows on them yet?

    No - you will still need a wifi account to be able to connect.
    Yep - you can install XP on them.

    Anyone know of any other good touch-screen WLAN phones right now on Orange, Voda or T-Mobile?
