“I love this beasty. It is instant on and the display...”

Written on: 23/01/2002 by Mike. (1 review written)

I love this beasty. It is instant on and the display is pretty good - not in the Ipaq league, but the power consumption is low so you go for a week on a set of 4 AA nicads. The only annoying thing about the Ericsson MC218 is that the stylus sometimes pops out on its own - its held by a wire.
I just bought a Handspring for my son, but I know I have a better PDA with a decent little keyboard as well.
Speed isnt everything - EPOC is small and fast - I even enjoy my favourite Speecy game Lase Squad… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/11/2001 by Steve Gray. (1 review written)

This gem really performs well with my Ericsson SH888, except the dim screen which is more than just a nuisance. The open/close on and off switch has packed up and it cost me several sets of cells before I realised! (as well as the return postage) but....pull the cf card from my digital camera and I can e-mail a shot from a fell top. Well worth it at the price from www.clove.co.uk , forget the Psion! If you think that I have been unfair about the screen--then lay it down next to a Palm… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/07/2001 by David. (1 review written)

Previously I was a 3A user but I bought my MC 218 from Clove and found the support fom Clove and Ericsson simply the best. Ericsson actually walked me thru setting up the personal internet with me on the phone and them telling me what to do till I made the connection. I work away from home a lot and it is ideal to pick up emails the internet calls are free provided they do not exceed 4 hours a month (cellnet package)

Never failed yet and the only foible I find is using the address book in… Read Full Review

I have to disagree on the fact that you can only search in the name-field in the Addressbook.
<br>Pressing Ctrl+F (or going to the "edit"-menu and selecting the bottom most option) gives you the ability to search ALL fields available. I use this very often to find groups of people I have labeled as part of a club or similar in the "Notes"-field.
<br>On all other points I totally agree; Ericsson even swapped my DI27 modem to a DI28 for free when I switched from a GF768 to a T28 phone!
<br>I just LOVE this machine!!! I had a PalmOS-base thingie for a while, but I quickly went bach to the MC218 despite its large size and weight. The larger screen and superior keyboard make up for this more than enough!

To Jan van der Wouw who wrote the comment.
<br>I live in the Netherlands as well and am looking for a Ericcson MC 218. Where did you buy yours?
<br>Isn't the MC 218 more expensive than the Psion 5mx (you can get that for only 380 euro's already)

Written on: 12/02/2001 by johnno. (1 review written)

Having lugged around a Nokia 9000, then 9110 I wanted something similar. Tried the Palm V but constantly hunting and pecking with the stylus on the letters was a pain, and setting it up for the internet took days rather than a couple of minutes. Whilst combined weight of Ericsson phone plus MC218 is more than Nokia its better handling, the fact that I don't need to carry the MC218 all the time, better memory and more software made it ideal. After fifteen months with it I cannot imagine living… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/09/2002

Absolutely agree. Only problem now is what can you buy to replace them as they are no longer available?
<br>
<br>I don't like using these where you have to use the stylus, oh yes you can buy a keyboard but that is another item to carry about.
<br>
<br>I can't think what I will do without it!!

Written on: 23/03/2000 by Peter. (1 review written)

This is actually an Ericsson badged Psion 5mx which is far better than the MC16 I had previously. The MC16 was Windows CE2 and painfully slow. The MC218 comes with all the Psion software plus an infrared modem for my Erricson phone. The extra software gives me full internet access via my mobile including email connection to my isp and fax capability. Dont get excited about internet access using a mobile though as it is far too slow. The keyboard is great and I can edit my phone numbers on the… Read Full Review
