Does someone know if this phone has separate slots for both MMC and SD. If so you could use the SD slot for a wifi card and the MMC slot for memory expansion!
Mine arrived yesterday from www.gpsmidlands.co.uk and apart from missing wireless is brilliant. I have managed to install s spectec sd wi-fi card without too much problem. Gps sensitivity is as goos as it gets !!
I have preordered mine from www.supergps.co.uk as they will be the first web site in the UK to have them. Arriving with them 10th March
In love with this phone but wifi is a must in this internet world.
But no wi-fi and no support fot UK 7-digit postcodes, sadly. Can add SD wi-fi, I suppose, so probably the best all-in-one currently available. I think I'll wait for something better though.
I've been looking a long time for a new phone. I'm now choosing between the QTEK S200 and this one but I think that it will be this one.
Differences between QTEK S200:
- Bluetooth Version 2
Yeah, phone looks really smart. Looks like March is now confirmed as release date. It was due around October last year.
This site has delivery for early March www.supergps.co.uk. Probably in time for the launch at CEBIT.
According to this eshop http://www.clove.co.uk/products/products.asp?strAreaNo=400_1_13&intElement=26657 the phone will be available in March. I will buy it since there is no better communicator/gps bundle available. Great cpu, memory ok, latest s/w, gps..... (Maybe the screen is a bit small for gps but I'll live with that)
OK.. Since everybody think it is a great phone w/ all those power parts and excelent performence, did we miss something??
It's been a while since we saw the first post of this phone from Aug '05. And Now it's Feb '06. I am still waiting for it, but when will it really release? it's been delated for long time, and many times.
Anyone knows if the GPS chip be able to provide aviation Data (speed/distance/Altitude/Heading etc...).
Well the previous post mentionned that the A201 was able to take any GPS software , is that known for a fact? (it would be sweet if the A701 does the same ... you guessed it for aviation software :-) ... thanks).
Well, it uses the SiRFStar III -- which is a darned good GPS chip. I'm hoping they follow the A201 and allow you to install whatever GPS software you'd like, rather than the 268/269, which comes prepackaged with TeleAtlas things (TomTom uses SiRFStar w/ TeleAtlas maps, btw). No clue on the phone quality, though ...
Honestly, I had never heard of this brand, I have a doubt about its recieveing abulity. Also will they being for sale in US? THis company mainly target on Asia market, I wonder the GPS they have, it that including US maps. HOwever, I do feel impressed about it's function.
Side note -- according to their reps, they're targeting an early February launch date, but don't have tech specs (!?!) or target pricing (darn) as of 1/2/06.
Great looking phone. I don't use wireless a great deal, so the lack of built-in wifi isn't a huge detriment -- that's what my SD wifi card is for. Kind of worrisome that I haven't seen anything new (no reviews, no nothing) since the press release ... anyone seen any kind of review on this yet?
And I agree with Lee -- all indications are that this phone is quad-band, not tri-band. Which is fortunate -- the lack of an 850 band here in the states would keep me from buying this gorgeous phone.
I broke my D500 and this phone will replaces it (i can livce with out Wi-Fi) I Have been look for a few day to buy this phone but no dice. I read that it should be out in march of 2006. where is a good places to buy it before it is out? Is Ebay this first places to buy it?
Wowwww! really very beautiful design as well as compact, small with GPS intigrated, it is a must have device.
Why is this phone listed as Tri-Band when the Press Release from Mio's website clearly states that this phone is a quad-band phone?
the Qtek G100 is not a phone and has very samll ram rom and a slow processor...
