You have only the JAMmin option, and it's GPRS only. The Jasjar is 3G, but big and heavy. Another option is to use the SP5 Smartphone, but again it's GPRS only...

Get an Apache it runs the real 3G (EVDO). I was getting 1.3Mbps yesterday using it as a modem via USB.

thanks for that, would you have another option if i dropped the wi-fi. i suppose as long as its got 3g i could sync with exchange over the internet.

is the mail client on these things just like outlook e.g. does it an exchange client setup and can it be used using rpc over http? or is there another way?

thx

Nope, all current models come with Wireless LAN and cellular data anyway. Changing the requirements wouldn't change the outcome.

The Outlook client synchronises to Exchange Server over HTTPS, usin the same address as defined for RPC/HTTPs, but using its own protocol.

cool, ive just had a look at the Apache here and doesnt that look like the one. If only Telecom would match Vodafones $49/1Gb data plans Id be straight down to get one now.

I hate to say it but the Telecom $49/1GB deal is for the AirCard only and does not apply to Apache. Sorry Frown

You mean "does not", don't you?

What a bummer. I was thinking of changing my own plan to that one.

Ok, it looks like some stupid marketing decision made a company loose a potential client, again... Next!

What kind of idiotic move is that? What difference does it make if a customer is using a data card or Apache?

Yes I mean 'does not' - sorry. I don't make the rules regardless of whether I agree with them or not.
