Last Sony Ericsson Symbian smartphone leaves the house

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 1-Dec-2006 19:07

For months I have been trying to convince my wife to switch from the old Sony Ericsson P800 (Symbian UIQ-based) to a new Windows Mobile device.

I suggested the Windows Mobile device mainly because she is now keen on checking her e-mails while on the go, and the good old Sony Ericsson P800 wouldn't work with any push e-mail solution, only pop3 and imap. Since we have a Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 here, Microsoft Direct Push is an ideal solution, with no need of third-party software.

But she liked (note the past tense) her P800 because it is quite a compact  smartphone, with touch screen.

Today the P800 met the floor. Hard. And she asked if I had any phone she could borrow. The only ones I have around here are Windows Mobile Pocket PC, so she's now using an old i-mate Pocket PC Phone Edition. We might have to look for a newer more up-to-date model for her soon.


The bad side for me? Just last month I bought a brand new battery for this phone... Well, as posted in the post title, this is probably the last Symbian device in this house.
