This is a new phone, and one that I haven’t had a chance to try yet (I saw it at Staples for $349.00). The PLUS is that I can buy the phone without a contract and subscribe on a monthly plan! I plan on doing this to try the phone out… So the information in this post is from reviews I’ve found on the Internet.
This phone supports GSM 850, 900, 1800, and 1900 bands (quad-band phone).
Here is the marketing information on the product:

Once I pick-up the phone, I’ll also provide you with a review – hopefully in the next few weeks!
Over the next couple of days, I’ll introduce a few more products to you:
Of course, there are many more out there all ranging in price. I’m partial towards HP as I’ve used a Pocket PC for about 5 years now and really like it.
