Does it rn skype over wifi?
How well does the processor handle multitasking media player plus more?

Take note that the Microsoft Windows mobile suite SUX real bad… I had the HP 6315 that ran version 3.0 and I had to reset the device 2-3 times a day because it would freeze, the OS platform that Microsoft uses is very unreliable. It sounds like this is a reoccurring issue with all devices. Don't use this device or any that runs the Windows Mobile suite unless you are willing to backup your data everyday and are ok with the fact that you could lose all your data at any given time. On multiple occasions I had my device crash (back to the original welcome screen- everything is gone on the phone) and had to reinstall all my software which takes 45minutes at least to put everything back on... beware when using Windows mobile.
Have it for a week in O2 xda minis form. S far pros and cons:
- great screen surprisingly good to read books on the move!!
- just rigth to put sat nav in ( i got Copilot 6) and being able to see it while driving,
-good for games,
- first pda which i'm not embarassed to use without hands-free.
- great idea of all in one device with proper keyboard
- transcriber( handwriting recognition) works surprisingly good. I'm found me hardly using keyboard as it is so much more fast to write.
- bugged and unreliable. As a finished product - junk. Only suitable for geeks who dont mind to reload and reset things all the time. Crashes or freeze at least 3 times a day WITHOUT any extra software installed. If you want to use it for serious stuff forget it.
- Phone is rubbish and everybody complains about me sounding like through the pillow. did not had to repeat myself so much and so often never before.
-original wired hands-free very bad, wire long and thin, tend to tangle in no time, mic weak, sound poor,
-very slow in most of the times. press something and have a tea while you thinking: will it crash now or not?
- Windows mobile is sick joke. Without using host windows PC you hardly can do anything, i do not like or have wintel pc oops!!
Resume: beautiful idea and form but bad and cheap execution combined with unreliable useless erratic OS. Still technology in infancy and craddle stage. Guess few years down the line next generations will work as intended with some degree of hassle free use. But until then it is an expensive toy for technolovers and nothing more.
Lockz i think it is the O2 version with the problem cos i have had no problems and my customers are happy with theres to so i think you need a t-mobile one
eastcoast all you need yo do is call your service pervider and thay can set it up 4 u
Fantastic device, very versatile and the smallest lightest all in one (PDA + Phone) on the market. Has a faster WiFi than the 9090 which connects easily to any home WAP.
I bought the 9100 for a weak ago , i love it but i cant get the tom tom 5 working.
i just bought the qtec 9100. luv it, except i need help with the gprs settings, im with t-mobile, please can someone help me so i can get online..
Yes they branded the phone.
Just like T-Mobile branded it with the name MDA Vario
Is it me or is this exactly the same as the xda mini s, Have o2 maybe rebranded this item? Somebody please confirm for me.
I just purchased the qtek 9100 and its in french. How do i convert it to english. Anyone please HELP and email me back firstname.lastname@example.org
Most of the positive posts about the 9100 are related to the device itself (look and feel, coolness factor). MOst of the negative issues seem to be related to the actual usage of the device. I am a pretty hardcore Blackberry user who relies on both email access and phone to get through the day. I have been _trying_ to use the QTEK 9100 for about a month now and I have gotta say either mine is broken or the device is not ready for prime time. Here's my stats so far:
Avg Phone Calls/Day: 25
Avg Emails/Day: 30 outbound; 200 inbound
Device Freeze Ups: at least 2 per day
Device Soft Reset Time: 2 minutes (this means 2 minutes of unusable phone!)
Number of Contacts: 3500
Time to Search Contact by name: Up to 2 minutes!
Start up time from sleep: Up to 15 seconds to paint the screen with the keypad before a call. Intolerable!
DTMF Failure: the keypad sometimes freezes upon call initiation making it impossible to enter DTMF tomes to enter passwords for voicemail. This happens on about 1 out of 4 voicemail calls.
Too Many keystrokes: having to hit a power button, then
One last complaint: The keyboard is too big to be used with one hand. Blackberry and treo users are alread accustomed to working with one thumb to send an email - I can't believe that I am saying this, but the keyboard is just too big.
All the quoted times are with no other applications running - if you have something else like media player (god forbid) running in the background then the device will grind to a halt.
So the bottom line is that if you are a kid who want to watch movies and play games then this device rocks. If you want to manage your mobile office then stay far away form this. I am glad to still have my Blackberry..Now I just have to pry my SIM card out of the QTEK for good!

I think that this is the same phone I also am a little confused about all this. I want to get this phone in jan. The good thing is that I will get it for free, with my upgrade from t-mobile. It is called the mda vario.
here is a great breakdown of the phone
I found it very helpfull to understand the phone. I think that you can watch movies on it. especially if you can get the stereo headphones to get the right connection. If anyone has already worked that one out please feel free to email me with a solution. It is a 2.5mm stereo jack with microphone. so rather than the 2 black stripes on a normal stereo jack it has 3. anyways hope this link helps. http://www.coolsmartphone.com/article479.html
