First take: Dopod C500


Christmas stocking a size too small? Fret not. This Windows Mobile 6 smart phone with a slideout QWERTY keyboard is equally compact, goes easy on your wallet at S$568 (RRP) and is likely to score you a date.

"Still my phone up to now"


I am using this phone up to now and it helps me a lot with my work. I use skype and windows program. I recommend this phone for people who are always out and is not bringing their laptop. It is small but the features are remarkable.

Very easy to use, has wifi and front keyboard, camera is not bad

It gets slow sometimes, no 3g and hsdpa

"Surprisingly amazed when I first got this Dopod C500 out of the box. It appears much smaller than what I thought. Imagine, a small phone with both


I had been experiencing a disappointment from the old mini O2 and had stopped using a window mobile phone since then. It took me 2 years to overcome the resistance to any window mobile phones until I came across this Dopod C500. This phone comes in a...

With both keypad and a full qwerty keyboard, you have a choice to explore both in different circumstances. For example, the keypad function appears to be more convenient while driving rather than a qwerty keyboard or a touch screen. Of course I'm not...

GPRS connection does not disconnect automatically but manually. If you forget to disconnect each time after browsing the internet, the data transmission could cost you a bom

"Decent but flawed"


Decent phone, but quite bulky. This phone hase the worst of both worlds. The inconvenience of a smart phone, but the bulk of a Pocket PC (windows WM6 pro). Add this to the terrible HTC customer service who will repair you device after several weeks for...

looks like a regular phone

from 1995

"Outstanding features in a very small gadget"


I just buy this smartphone in Hong Kong today (23-May-2007). Once I hold this smartphone in my hand, I feel very easy to use (one of the reasons..I am left-handed). Of course, it is also suitable for right-handed users. I used O2 IIM smartphone before...

Wifi, Easy to use smartphone, keyboard, good camera quality

"ALMOST my dream PDA phone"


Almost, because my dream camera is a two-way slide. Vertically to open up the numerical pad (for phoning and text-ing) and horizontally to open up the qwerty. Not possible? I don't think so, very much ossible. That way, it can accomodate a larger...

2 input methods: numeric & qwerty; wm6; wifi; pocketable package

rather small screen; no 3G; slow processor; no HSDPA
