The much-awaited Apache has now been released at $1199
It comes with two Lithium Polymer batteries too... nice touch. (as well as cradle, cable stylus, headphones etc...)

Have had mine since first thing this morning.

Had a little trouble getting Activesync 4.0 working (took about ten minutes of docking/undocking restarting, deleting partnerships).

Am I right in thinking that it looks like I cant sync between two computers?

The form factor of the Apache is really great, and for anyone who says its too thick - its thinner than a Sanyo 7400 (and no one ever complained about the thickness of that).

Some nice features - its working well with my Nokia Bluetooth carkit (CK-7W), WiFi at home, CDMA outside. Just need to take a BT pc card to work for my computer there :-)

Everythings a little smaller than the Harrier, (on screen), but thats a tradeoff im perfectly happy to make!!

It will synchronise PIM (Calendar, Email, Contacts, Tasks, Notes) to two computers, if runnnig Microsoft Outlook. If using Exchange ActiveSync then it will only synchronise between computers whatever is not selected to synchronise to Exchange.

On the other hand the VGA screen on the Universal is beautiful - but the fonts are too large and things not always fit well.

I got the chance to play with one for a while in the telecom shop in queen st. It was much compact than i thought.

Talking to the retail person, he said you cannot buy the apache on prepaid plan. Can anyone confirm this?

anyone managed to get the Apache to data roam in USA? I was told it would work by some at Telecom and that they still had to complete agreements by others. The phone roams as a phone but I haven't managed to data roam on CDMA. The wifi connection allows some internet access. With telecom's restriction on txting from the US while roaming I was hoping that email access via CDMA would be possible this trip.

There's currently no CDMA data to the USA, only voice.

There are rumours this will be implemented, but not dates are set to the public yet.

so why does theTelecom website say that data roaming is available in Aus and USA? More marketing BS or just another half-baked solution like txting that works to but not from?

Good question. Could you please open a new thread and put a link to the TNZ page where they say they have data roaming to the US?

This has potential to be off topic in this thread about the Apache.
