General Comments
I had a Compact II before upgrading to this Compact III.

Like the Compact II it is a PDA based Windows Smart Phone - built buy a company called HTC and re branded and sold under the T-Mobile name.

This phone has a touch screen, Windows 5.0, Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Internet, email, Media Player, PDF Viewer, Sat Nav, 2mp Camera. Oh... and a phone.

If you have a Compact II in my view its not worth changing and paying money for. If you're thinking of getting a Windows Smart Phone with Sat Nav for the 1st time - then this is the one.

Loads of features, easy to use and well priced, or free if on a contract with T-Mobile.

The one major thing with PDA based phones - they are not designed as a phone first. There is no substitute for real buttons!

The reception is not very good at home - well, non-existent, but that has more to do with T-Mobile's coverage in my area and not the actual phone.

I use the sat nav a lot and the GPS receiver is built in to the phone, as opposed to the old Compact II where it was a separate unit.
