Sprint PPC-6700

 

As a phone, the PPC-6700 is pretty good. The earpiece sound is loud and clear, though transmissions sounded a bit hollow on the other end and didn't offer background-noise cancellation. The speakerphone is so quiet as to be totally useless, but the...

Good EV-DO/Wi-Fi integration. Excellent keyboard. Small size. Good battery life

Poor speakerphone. Lagging applications. Can't dial with one hand

This is the best Windows Mobile PDA/phone we've seen, with a nearly ideal balance of size and power, though we have a few quibbles.

Of the 6700's many positives, the device's biggest is its QWERTY thumb-keyboard, which slides out sideways to give you far more typing space than most smartphones. The keys are all slightly curved outward for a nice feel that makes them easy to use as...
