Echoey call quality

from Wired

Aptly named the Voice Messenger, this GSM/EDGE smartphone reads text messages and e-mail aloud in a voice reminiscent of the Jetsons' robot maid, Rosie. While we found her speech somewhat endearing, it was often unintelligible, choppy, and very mechanical. The voice recognition did a good job of obeying our commands for operations like playing music and composing audio e-mail (a message with an attached, voice-recorded note). On the flipside though, the phone often flubbed voice dialing and frequently called wrong numbers. To make up for these imperfections, the iPAQ 510 packs many elements geared for the constantly-has-to-check-e-mail set, including Wi-Fi connection and the well-designed Windows Mobile 6.0 OS...

WIRED View, create, and edit Word, Excel, or PowerPoint documents. Slick appointment calendar provides quick access to a specific date. Handy Shortcuts button quickly launches frequently used apps. Sync Outlook e-mail and contacts using Wi-Fi or USB. Makes VoIP calls. Expandable memory via microSD slot.

TIRED Echoey call quality. No 3G support. Cramped keypad and slippery, rounded keys. Some voice commands (especially ones involving messaging or data entry) require additional button presses to work. OS is a little sluggish.

Pro: High-End Technology / Excellent Price Con: cannot support SD cards presumably over 2GB I paid cash for this as my work phone through CompUSA (before their stores closed) so my price deal was better than my company's pricing. It came preloaded with Windows Mobile 6, but I did run the ROM update through it anyway. My company's internet and MMS settings only took 20 minutes to program (from my memory, no less!) and was up and running easily. My Yahoo accounts (also a breeze to program from a cheat sheet I made ahead of time). It could use more background colors for the menus (only 3) and I have yet to setup the Voice Messenger. HP support has been wonderful as I registered the phone with them and they invited me to participate in a product survey about the phone AND they will do a followup survey in 3 months. I loaded my own Google Maps and a friend bluetoothed SK Tools to my phone which has really boosted my phones processor with autocleaners, RAM and registry cleanup tools and a performance checker! I love the side access for the Micro SD cards, but it cannot work with high-capacity Micro SDHC cards (as I recently learned). Texting is easy, and all the buttons have a great feel even for my sometimes clumsy fingers. ALl in all, this phone was a great investment! Less
