'The phone and headset managed a range of 20 feet which is average among phones.'
'While the BlackBerry "Pearl" 8100 -- available from T-Mobile for $349.99 or Cingular for $399.99 ($199.99, with the usual contract stipulations from both) -- makes a noble effort to implement the BlackBerry service including a QWERTY keypad, camera, and music and video playback into a device about the size of a business card holder, finding, programming, and operating both simple and advanced functions can be headache- inducing.'
'Unfortunately, the Cingular 8100 series is clunky and heavy,'
'speaker independent voice dialing and command system'
'Most frustrating is the placement of the soft menu keys in landscape mode; they're positioned on the extreme opposite ends of the keyboard instead of right underneath the menu options on the display.'
'It should be ready for retail sale real soon, as we saw a number of Samsung Executives using them this week.'
'The Microsoft Smartphone functionality in the SCH-i600 makes it a convenient phone with PIM- and e-mail–oriented PDA features'
'There are no colorful LED status indicators for Bluetooth and battery which is in no way something to mourn about.'
