Do you have any old Windows Mobile (WM) Personal Digital Assistance (PDA)? Are you thinking about buying a new BB (BlackBerry) smartphone? Or .. are you confused about choosing made-in-China mobile phones to buy?
Well, you don't have to be confused or sad with it. If you have an old PDA, don't sell (or throw) it away, since you are lucky to have it. If you are thinking about buying BB or any China mobile phone, think again. Click "read more" below to read ...
First of all, BB is "just" any other mobile phone, but off course (a lot) smarter. That is why it's called or categorized as smartphones. PDA in the other hand, is a mini computer, with all features in it.
So, if you are choosing between BB and PDA, in my opinion, you better buy PDA. Even an old (WM) PDA is worth more than BB to me. But don't pick PPC PDA, at least the PDA must have Windows Mobile 2003 (or shortened as WM2003) as the operating system and it must be a phone PDA (not just ordinary a PDA without any making call capability), for you to be productive enough.
I have an old Verizon Samsung SGH i700 (phone) PDA, with WM2003 in it. I buy it on the second-stuff (or used-stuff) market. It can work very good in my country, Indonesia. I use TelkomFlexi as my (CDMA) operator. All I can say is, it works very good and I'm happy with it.
To be productive, I must find some good applications to be installed in my PDA. Some of the sites that I downloaded my applications from are:
There are a lot of sites to download PDA applications. But those above are my favorite sites to search PDA applications. Especially http://www.pdagold.com/freeware/ and http://www.sorobangeeks.com/ (the latest is good, since I can download applications directly from my PDA).
In http://www.pdagold.com/freeware/, I can get some productive tools like calculators, big and intuitive SIP (Soft Input Panel) virtual keyboard, Opera Mini, instant messenging, games, and a lot more. I can even have some 3D games in my old PDA!
Well I think it's enough to say that even an old PDA is better than BB. This opinion is very relative to time and place. But I think PDA will last longer than BB and any other smartphones, since PDA is not just a phone, but it's a mini computer.
You can play games on PDA (just like I do), editing your files, replying your email, chatting, and so on.
There is no disadvantage of having a PDA. The only thing you would consider about PDA is the price, the manufacturer, and the type.
Hopefully this can be a help for you.
