... I heard rumor of this at Thrive on Wednesday. The Telecom sales team were doing a good job. So does anybody have any information on this upcoming phone - is it going to be as sexy as the P990????

[Moved this thread to Telecom New Zealand forum.]

They are talking about the HTC Apache Pocket PC Phone Edition, to be called (in good Telecom tradition of not changing code names) simply "Apache". It's the same as the Sprint PPC-6670 and looks like this:



It runs Windows Mobile 5.0, and connects to CDMA EV-DO.

It will be available sometime in October, the rumours are that it was pushed back one or two weeks. I've seem one working on Telecom's network, and played with the Sprint one while in the USA.

I am in the line to get one for a review and will post more information on Geekzone when this is available.

It doesnt actually look that bad! Was it much chunkier then the Harrier, and please say it has MMS - I could not believe the Harrier did not have MMS it was the phones only shortcoming in my opinion. That and I could seem to get mini firefox working... When will they learn that the customer (me in this case) might not actually want to use IE! Power to the people!

Thrive? whats that?

it is coming, the keypad looks like that of the jasjar where as the k-jam has isolated buttons. A play with the k-jam @ the vodafone roadshow (sorry i know this is the telecom thread) was promising a pity its edge and not umts (3g) but the buttons were isolated rather than just raised off a predominately flat keypad.

It is smaller than the Harrier - a bit lighter.

As for browsers, you have options: look for Access Netfront or Thunderhawk. Don't even think of Minimo - the software is in alpha stages and going very slowly!

Why would I be kidding? I am looking at my Apache now and there is no MMS client. You can however email photos.

Am I the only one that really don't mind not having MMS on a mostly business-oriented device?

no you are not the only one - I don't care either. As far as I am concerned an MMS client would just hog memory and I would never use it.

Are you telling me there are no business uses for MMS? I can think of 101 productive and innovative ways to use MMS. Anyway it doesnt mean I'm going to use Vodafone I'll just get another Telecom phone that suits me :)

must admit though... I only send PXT(MMS) once every blue moon.. mostly i forgot about it! LOL i just txt and even better call... and when i get V3G, i'll VideoCalling rather than PXTing.


Thought I would like to know how PXT api works and how/where to get a MMS gateway, so i can create my own PXTBlog. :-)
