Well, I have been sick and tired of waiting for Handspring (Oops! I mean palmOne) to release the Treo 600 for T-Mobile and seriously contemplated exploring an alternative route. Interestingly, I was buying a CD from Amazon the other day, and I came across a great deal for the Sony Ericsson T610--Free!. Yes, I got the free phone after the combined Amazon and T-mobile $200 rebates, and Amazon even included $79 BT Jabra headset for free. So, it was a great deal to pass up. Furthermore, T-mobile is now offering the unlimited GPRS service for $19.99 per month. Serendipity also played a role here. My Treo 180's flip cover broke over the weekend, and I had to get it replaced anyway. To make a long story short, let's just say I passed on the Treo 600 and went with the T610.
Also, ever since I got the Palm Tungsten T3, I was itching to find out how great a T3 and BT phone combination might be. Needless to say, I thought the BT feature in my T3 was one of the most underutilized features. So, this was too great of an opportunity for me to pass up.
My initial impression: This is a fantastic combination. Everything worked as advertised or expected first time: transferring phonebook data, connecting to the web and sending/receiving e-mails using GPRS, and so forth and so on. I never realized how convenient BT was until I tried this combination. I was also pleasantly surprised to discover how much faster this combination was compared to my old Treo 180 when surfing the web and downloading e-mails.
I will have more later, but I'm pleasantly surprised and wildly impressed with what I discovered today. Stay tuned . . .
