I've been using mobile office devices like this, for around 20 years (early pda's such as the Psion 3 series, for example). I find them indispensible, and have never had them stolen while working abroad, unlike friends with their vanishing laptops that seem to disappear for a pastime. Not losing my work is rather important, being able to deliver that work easily, or forward work in progress to safe storage such as an e-mail inbox, is also important. As an aside, I can't wait to get my hands on one of the new pendant bluetooth hard drives Seagate are bringing out (up to 60gb storage apparently), which I can hang round my neck, for easy backups. It will be an ideal partner to devices like this.
This X7500 is about as small as is practical for a Bluetooth/WiFi 640 x 480 resolution touchscreen Pocket PC comms device.
Website designers are starting to get 'up to speed' with the requirements of mobile pocket device displays (Microsoft have issued guidance for their support, to enable easy updating of sites for resolving these issues, so sites can display correctly in these lower resolutions), and which are quite different to 'legacy' websites.
With that in mind, the 640 x 480 resolution is optimum (properly implemented sites even look good and work well with 320 x 240).
800 x 600 would be very counterproductive in this regard, and detract from touchscreen usability, plus sites would take a lot longer to load, which will contribute to hammering your battery, as well as your connection costs with some service providers outside of WiFi connections.
This device has a place, and a substantial market which has been waiting for what this product offers, to arrive. That market is not a laptop market, it is a Pocket PC market with phone and other communication facilities built in, as well as maybe satnav, which revolve around Bluetooth and especially WiFi capability.
Anyone that wants to use this device next to their ear, doesn't know what it is about, or, just wants to show off. Bluetooth it, or speakerphone it.
It's an overlap market with the one for devices like the 320 x 240 resolution HTC Hermes/TyTN/Vario II/M3100/etc (I have the M3100 running one of the 'pre-release' cooked Windows Mobile 6 roms).
Pocket PC devices are able to run Pocket PC applications (MSN Live Messenger for Pocket PC, Pocket Word, Pocket Excel, Pocket Outlook, for example) very well, without power hungry processors. The battery in this X7500 should give perfectly adequate usage (2200ma is a pretty good capacity for a powerful device like this), given it will either a) be hooked up to a PC via USB for convenience and usability whilst also having the battery topped off; or b) be used whilst plugged into a car charger, for most of the time it is switched on.
With a device like this, if I don't have it plugged into a powersource, and am not at a place I will be using it at, or not using the GPS (backpacking, or whatever), then I simply SIM swap into a spare GSM handset to save capacity. We all have at least one of those, right?
Do NOT make the mistake of comparing devices such as this, to Symbian OS devices such as Nokia, Sony Ericsson, etc. They are chalk and cheese, and don't offer anything remotely like the sheer functionality and lack of grief of a Windows Mobile device (for example think on the SE 990 saga, a 'flagship' Symbian device very very late to market, and STILL looking for a firmware solution to its problems, how many months later?).
If you need the features that X7500 offers, then personally I'd get it flashed to Windows Mobile 6 ASAP, or better, insist that the supplier supplies it running Windows Mobile 6 - yes it is worth it. Windows Mobile 5 certainly works, and might well offer all you need, but there are significant advances in version 6 that devices like this can take advantage of.
Useful Windows Mobile 6 upgrade info, here:
If you need most of the features and usability offered by the X7500, plus infra red, in a much smaller package, then get the Hermes/TyTN/Vario II/M3100 - which is a truly outstanding device in its own right, and one which provides everything I could possibly need from a mobile device.
Which is why I won't be buying an X7500.
Full marks to HTC for producing it though.
Its cute and the best part is, it fits my hand, it has all most all features which one wants to buy and can utlize at this point in time, Excellent i wish we can update the Windows 5 to 6 or else it would get stuck with the final consumers.
Way to go i am planning to buy one but just waiitng for the price to come down a little bit...
HTC with its innovative products will sonn become a mkt leader...
man its out got mine today from http://www.popularelect.com loving it
"up to 5 hours of talk time" = 4 hours talk = 2 hours talk + 1.5/1 hour screen usage = 1 hour talk + 1 hour screen usage + 0.5 hour GPS
IT THAT ENOUGH FOR YOU?
USB 1.1 WM5 - great job HTC ! push obsolete technology for merely $1500!
May be a new ROM will update it with WM6.
HTC version is not out yet....once people will start playing with it, I am sure they will find a way to update it with WM6
x7501 is for US market and I am sure there would be a way to put on x7500 WM6
I don't think the x7500 can be upgrade. HTC is releasing x7501 with WM6.
Hi guys, can any body can tell me, can I upgrade WM from 5 to 6? what about the quilty of the sound??
I had Nokia phone for few days, I got so frustrated N73 is so slowwwww, I never saw such slow system and what I heard from people everything on Advantage is faste, almost flying
