Any opinions out there on which cheapish Smartphone/PDA I should buy?
I'm looking at the HTC Snap (because of the price) but I like the key pad/keyboard layout on the Nokia E51 so wondering if worth the extra $$$. Any others I should consider under a grand?
And what do I need to know that the shops aren't telling me?
I really just need a PDA for the calendar and contacts (sync to my laptop MS Outlook) and emergency data when I'm out of town: email (check it occassionally on one day a week), viewing documents (maybe a couple of time a year) and as a modem to download files to my PC (maybe twice a year at most). I'm a pretty boring user ... I call, text, and send pxts and videos to family. I never use TV, music or internet. A camera good enough to print photo's from might get me to spend more. WIFI to connect to my wireless broadband and a speakerphone would be useful.
I don't want to be tied to a network if I can help it and I like to travel so the phone needs to be compatible with overseas networks (US, Europe, etc)
I have a reasonable understanding of how things work but I'm no techno so it needs to be reasonably easy to setup and use!
