Runs Microsoft applications (is that a good point?!). Syncs to Outlook. Easy to trasfer files from PC. Touch screen. POP Email.
If it loses signal for more than a few minutes IT DOESN'T RECONNECT! Which is very annoying, and can loose you business/friends etc. Not Bluetooth.
As a phone it makes a good PDA! I'd only recommend the XDA if you were serious about using it as a PDA. I'd keep another mobile phone as backup.
Reception is its biggest drawback, and I have missed many calls as it hasn't reconnected to the network.
Web browsing is very possible and the GPRS connection seems fine. Battery life is good, but falls off after serious web browsing.
There are many downloadable programs/games available, and file storage is no problem with my 256MB memory card. Would you believe "Age of Empires" on a mobile phone!!!
Perhaps one day there will be a software upgrade to make the phone work better...
