the phone sounded fairly clean, and callers had no trouble understanding us.
The Nokia E66 is a fine business phone, and a great, small alternative for users who want a slick design inside and out, paired with loads of great features. The phone has great options for business users, including Exchange server support and a robust Office suite, though not everything is as easy to use as it might be on a carrier-supported phone, and we found ourselves frequently searching for server settings, additional apps and instructions, all to get the phone working on this...
After the success of the E50 from Nokia, there was a demand for a something better in a similar package. That's when Nokia launched the E51. While the E50 was promising for an average user, the E51 packages power that'll suffice for demanding users. Can the E51 provide the power that many users expect with its conservative design? Let's find out.
The Sony Ericsson W810 is simply one fantastic handset. While I found the speakerphone to be weak, and was disappointed by the lack of stereo Bluetooth support, it simply does everything else exquisitely well. The internal antenna holds on to a signal well, the battery life is good, and the 2 megapixel auto-focus camera takes pictures as well as the Walkman app plays music.
Out-of-box audio quality is very good,
Picking up where the W800i left off, the Sony Ericsson W810i offers improved music navigation in tandem with the same excellent music management capabilities and decent amount of bundled memory as its predecessor. Out-of-box audio quality is on par with the high standards we've come to except from the handset maker, while we're slightly disappointed by the lack of stereo Bluetooth audio.
We were able to pair the Treo Pro with the Logitech Mobile Traveller Bluetooth headset and the Motorola S9 Bluetooth Active Headphones with no problem.
The Palm Treo Pro offers significant improvements in the design and features department, but the smartphone doesn't offer anything revolutionary and costs more than its competitors, which will make it a hard sell.
The speakerphone was adequate, and the speaker is well placed near the side of the device so you can talk with the phone in a supine position on a table.
With the Palm Treo Pro, Palm has created a competent piece of Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional hardware, but we're less enthusiastic about WinMo 6.1 every day. The Palm Treo Pro on Sprint seems an anathema to the ease of use and simplicity that Palm has always championed. Where Sprint got involved, adding trial programs and bloat by the handful, things are confused and redundant.
satisfying, clear sound
The Nokia 6650 is a rarity among U.S. phones, a carrier-supported phone running the Symbian S60 OS. You don't have to know that Symbian is the world's leading smartphone OS to benefit from all the potential locked away in this device, especially for business users who will find a range of e-mail and address book synchronization options with some simple digging.

Despite a pricey retail tag of $229.99 from AT&T, singing a two-year service contract (which is often standard in the U.S. when purchasing a cell phone today) brings the price down to a manageable $79.99. Online discounts and other specials can knock the cost down even further to $29.99.
Buried in the W350's details, we also have one other interesting perk: its talk time.
The Sony Ericsson W350 looks fantastic, but its performance doesn't quite live up. Perhaps we've been spoiled by the high-end Walkman experience we've had on other Sony Ericsson phones, like the but as a bargain phone, with a low-resolution screen and some flimsy hardware, the Walkman experience just doesn't work. We love the design, but when the tiny buttons and difficult controls make using the device more difficult, that love begins to wane.
