I have reviewed this post : http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?ForumId=18&TopicId=6868

My needs, I dont know anything about these products

Fast data with internet, pictures, text etc
Excellent mobile phone
Excellent email
Be able to transfer to overseas network, if I relocate ( Middle east )
Best accessories of either software or hardware, little freebee tools, add ons, keyboard
I suppose good memory CPU, HD, and RAM
Connect with laptops and desktops etc

I am learning towards Apache, what is the top of the range Apache product ?

Will the apache be good if I relocate, and need to jump on another network ?

The HTC Apache will be no good to take permanently overseas - its CDMA, so you cant just pop another sim card in it - its unlikely that your destination has CDMA, or even if they did, its highly unusual (usually impossible) to connect a foreign CDMA handset somewhere.

The iMate JasJar and a good bluetooth headset might be the ticket for you, but its bulky.
Check out the Kjam if you want something smaller.

CDMA in NZ currently has (IMO) the best / fastest mobile data (but there have been debates about that in some cases). Although UMTS is by no means slow either.

If you buy an Apache (without a contract), it will be worth around $700 on Trademe should you wish to sell it before you relocate.
