Hey guys, I need to know if there is any speed difference between an all-in-one pda w/phone GPRS to surf the net, versus a pda using bluetooth connecting to a GPRS phone. Is an all-in-one faster since it doesn't have to use bluetooth? I seems to me that an all-in-one device would be quicker, but I don't want to get an all in one device for money reasons and such. Anyone out there got any ideas? Thanks,
Josh

In my experience they're the same... The GPRS connection is slower than the Bluetooth link.

In this case it's a personal preference. I'm using the Motorola MPx220 Smartphone now, but I also have the Harrier Pocket PC Phone Edition (same as Verizon XV6600, CDMA EV-DO). And I use my h4150 to connect to the Internet over Bluetooth to these two other devices - can't see any difference in speed when doing that.
