    Default Dopod 838 Pro - Any users here

    Need some advice from users of dopod 838 Pro. Thinking of getting one. Using a Nokia 6280 now. Really love feature of sending SMS from PC with Nokia. I need Dopod for few reasons.

    - WiFi to use skype, make overseas call from office or near free spots. Browse internet /
    email.
    - Windows Mobile - Car Navigation, the screen is small but atleast I can
    simulate the route before driving.
    - office documents viewing.
    - 3G / EDGE - Needed when I'm in Japan.

    Have concerns over
    size , weight and battery life .
    Can I user activesync to send SMS.
    Bluetooth headset - which is recommended ?
    Anyone from KL , where to get best deal ?

    6280 serves me very well as a phone. Dopod is a pricey gadget, so wanted to be
    better informed before making my mind.

    Need advice from existing users. Thanks guys.

    Maybe you want to read this thread

    As for using AS to send SMS, third party software needed.

    Cheers

    Using it, loving it.

    I use it for navigation while driving too (Mapking) and it works great apart for some minor occasional glitches.

    Been using it a lot for browsing (on 3G its really fast) and emailling (free email push services at http://live.mail2web.com/)

    ppcsg.com is a great place to get started and to know more about your options.

    im using a motorola H500 BT headset with the 838 pro.
    moto's BT is quite clear...but i wouldnt recommend this model. But you can try out the others.

    the phone works great in japan...i was in tokyo in aug..used it throughout my entire trip.
