I have it! Excellent device - all is good, the only shortcoming could be sound quality in loudspeakers (sonds rather metallic) and not so cool sound on earphones (if compared to 750i). As to pictures it's quite good for 2 mpix camera - just don't move the phone while taking pic and do not photograph in darkness!!! :) GPS works just marvelously!!!
If you are thinking about this being the same as an MDA Compact 3 on TMobile, BEWARE!!
TMobile have the MDA3Compact, but it has NO WIFI CAPABILITY - ineed what I've read leads me to believe also that it is not just a WiFi locked Platform, but that the Hardware for Wifi is not present on the TMobile MDA 3 Compact.
If like me you read that the HTC 3300 was the same as the MDA 3 Compact on TMobile, you'd be lead to believe it has WIFI and it doesn't - BEWARE!! That is why it's significantly cheaper to buy than the O2 Orbit xx
All the best - Deb
overall it is great,gps is incredible,the only thing i found is that sound is not that great...by the way,how do you overclock the procesor?
Had the phone for a month now and like it very much. a nice upgrade from the 818 pro, faster start up, easier one hand operation and slimmer. Although it isn't technically much smaller it does make a difference.
Have not used GPS yet but looking forward to it. Not sure how fast PDA phones are supposed to be but i have no issues with the speed thus far.
i have had the 3300 for a week and i am quite pleased with it. However i get some annoying screen freezes when i terminate an incoming call.
Does anybody else get this? could someonw propose a remedy?
does anyone know what is the best microSD memory for this HTC P3300 device? does the speed of the card (x60, etc) really matter?
This unit uses a TI OMAP 850 200 MHz processor
I currently have a Qtek 2020i that uses a Intel Bulverde 520 MHz Processor (had it for 2 years)
What is the difference between these two processors
TI OMAP 850 200 MHz Vs Intel Bulverde 520 MHz
I was working with this phone for 2 weeks.
-Good stability of the OS
-Good GPS functions (with NMEA)
-Quite good battery life with latest upgrade from qtek official website
-Very slim for what it has to offer
-Ultra low voltage cpu, and good performance for its MHz...
-Are we still sticking up to 300MHz processors??
-The display could be a bit wider than 2.8"
-SAR... 1.26W/kg????? Are we boiling our brains or talking to the phone afterall? Probably the one, yet worst downfactor of the phone/pda...
One other thing you need an adapter to use normal headphones with nearly every other device using a 2.5mm jack, this device is no different a jack can be obtained and used in the same way .
I am from OZ and just ordered the Aus version a dopod P800w. In regards to the processor, i cant believe how many people early on that had never even seen the phone were giving negative comments on it because of the processor and the battery. I currently own the imate Jamin which uses the same processor as the P3300, I use it for everything from the playback of full length movies to using Skype and Oziexplorer with a BT GPS. It handles it all with ease.
The processor is a dual core processor that uses less power for the same amount of processing power giving you longer battery life, which in turn means you don't need as large a battery and you don't need as large a phone. Looking at the dimensions of this phone it is actually thinner than my Jamin.
As for you guys in the UK having wifi disabled that is a travesty, if that happened in Oz we would most likely boycot the the company doing it and I would get the phone sent to a mate outside the UK with wifi enabled.
To anyone that has had a Jamin before, how do you find this phone?? What is the Audio quality like in calls and how loud is the ext speaker??
I used it for about a week and tested almost everything incl. skype 2.2 worked perfect. Opening windows file though explorer takes sometime otherwise the CPU is okay. But I tried to install BullGuard antivirus on the device and it got stucked on today screen. Soft/hard reset couldn't help solve the problem, the touch screen was just not responding any more. It's now been sent for reparation. It's hard to say what caused the problem at the moment, but I'm thinking it's probably a bad lcd touch screen.
I made my order today.
Here in Athens, Greece, the best price (i ordered it) is at 585Euro, but with no internal memory card or software.
Its better this way as i can spend the money in order to buy the 2Gb card i want, and software....ehmmm...plenty of it on the net!
i think this pda/phone is great and here in Greece i have read many reports of people saying that is overclocked even at nearly 300MHz with no problems.
im expecting it in 2-3 days!
If you don't want the big gps phone,this is the best chice,i am using this phone for few days,is very power and good battery life.you can buy from Entrepot cellulaire peel mtl.
hey can anyone tell me where i can find addtional maps for north america for this device. thanks
Yes it comes with MSN IM. This phone is great, I had it over a week now and this is a great phone.
owned it for a week now. Great battery life, better GPS signal (vs. hw6925), slim and light, but not working with iguidance 3.0.
Im about to buy one but im looking at the specifications and i have one question can i use the msn messenger or yahoo with it??
