    All things considered I think that this is a very clever and generally well designed box of tricks

    I have always used a keyboard clamshell based PDA right back to the introduction of the Psion series 3a, I stuck with Psion untill their demise, and then bought a Hewlett Packard Jornada 720, I have a genuine use for these devices and they are not just a toy. The embedded software on the Jornada was no longer supported and it is very big, so I bought one of these on a contract, and all in all, I am impressed.

    As a phone it is a little alkward to use, but my main use of it is for data/e-mail/web, and as a PDA, and as a phone...its ok, but not as convenient as a little pat as you go

    I cant agree that it is slow, I think that in the main, web browsing is very impressive, and the E-mail side of it is about as good as you can reasonably expect get given its size, I would give it 5 stars for E-Mail...the keyboard works very very well, and is in many ways a bit better than the larger k/b on the Jornada old 720/680 series, but still not as good as a psion series 5

    The rotating screen worries me, as it is vulnerable when not completely rotated...be careful!!, but as a concept it is neat, and the image auto-rotates to fit when you flip it

    I use a leather case zip which allows me to use it in situ without removing it...not the slip case supplied, as I would worry about dropping it

    The Sim Free price is expensive, and you will cry if you break it, so get some accidental damage cover (houshold insurance ?)...oh and one more thing, as an MP3 player it is very very good because it accepts a standard size headphone jack (3.5mm I think)...

    I purchased this item through a telephone network provider, at a subsidised cost and it has been working beautifully. It is also a gem to look at.
    My principal complaint is of its functionality as a telephone - an obvious problem, but one that I had not considered before my purchase.
    If the JASJAR is carefully placed in its case in your pocket and the phone rings, you can plan on at least 15 seconds before you have it in hand and ready to answer. More if you want to unfold it to find out who is calling you. I have missed many calls because of this already, and its quite infuriating.
    I would still recommend it to anyone who needs an all-in-one, easily portable device. Truly one of its kind.
    I only have one battery for it, but it does tire quickly when the phone and mp3 players are used. a second battery may be a good idea.

    5 stars is for the product only. It was all I ever wanted:
    * It was easy to use
    * sychonisation with outlook was quick and simple
    * a comprehensive user guide that was well-written so I could use all the features
    * I could type in realtime and send it straight out in outlook for distribution.

    Then it broke. No reason. I took it out my bag and the screen had gone. I had had it all of two weeks. I was devestated.

    Suddenly all the failings of buying on-line come to the fore. The supplier pda-mobiles is running the business from cyber-space. No telephone numbner, no address, no response. Replies to email are slow, polite but with nil knowledge of consumer law or Amazon 'guarentee. WTen He claims it is not a manufacturing error but a 'human' error. How would human error stop the machine working? Pressing the wrong buttons too often? And how has he come to this convenient conclusion without seeing the machine? Then you find yourself wondering...well..it DID have a fault. Did the supplier get it from a legitimate source? You just do not know.

    And Amazon. Well, bless them! Their procedures are adequate enough for CDs, books and so on - things that are not time sensitive or very expensive. Where it does not matter too much. The average of seven to ten days to investigate however is all too slow for a working tool that is so fab you became reliant on it the moment you unpacked the box. It's too dear to pop out and get a duplicate. Yet you cannot survive without it.

    Things do go wrong with equipment. I accept that. If I had bought it from an O2 shop I could have received a replacement within hours of it going wrong with no questions.

    So my advice would be:
    1.

    Being a person who travels alot this is ideal for me. I hooked upto WIFI no problem and have used SKYPE VIA WIFI on this Pocket PC works great. SKYPE comes aleady loaded onto this pocket PC. Also you can get the network setting for free from the IMATE website for MMS WAP GPRS 3G and mobile Internet. I also used MSN via WIFI and 3G Pay As You Go Orange. Theres only one problem and that battery life but same with all pocket PCs. Could not do with out this device now MSN on the moves great and when you find a WIFI hot spot make some free phone calls with SKYPE to anywhere in the world. Ace +

    Finally, a device that does everything -- and I mean everything. From wifi to 3G you'll never be disconnected (in the UK, at least); I advise getting a contract that allows for a lot of data, with good 3G coverage, because this beauty is really worth it. I find Skype works perfectly, although you really do need a headset (it comes with a wired earpiece).

    It's quite large for a phone, it's slightly smaller than my Nintendo DS but bigger than any other gadget I've had, but the keyboard more than makes up for it -- a smaller device would be impossible to type on. It's just about as small as it can be while still being comfortable to use. Also, the screen brightness and clarity is top notch - mine even came with a screen protector - although don't rely on the built in camera to be much use.

    If you're a data user like me then you'll love the fact you can never be far away from your email. The keyboard makes typing really easy, far far easier than pecking out letters on a touchscreen, although the swivel screen means you can use it like a traditional portrait PDA too. I've not had a problem with battery life - it charges via USB so if you're never far from a computer you can keep it topped up.

    If you have large pockets (or you're female like I am and thus carry a bag!) it's an ideal buy -- it'll replace your phone and PDA and maybe even your laptop too. Beautiful piece of kit.
