Yes, the P910i has wireless b and can use wifi without using Vodafone data.

This website tells me that this phone is certainly wlan capable

Although the latest phone is the 990i as listed in the Latesyt My Mobile magazine

I suppose the next question is how much money you got to spend.
The next decision is what Operating system-Windows Mobile or Palm, Symbian.
Sounds like you got no experience of either??
My I suggest purchasing a copy of My Mobile-they list all the latest phones/pda in there.

I myself have 2 that I use-an Older Imate Jasjar-the one with the swivel screen and keyboard and recently got the Nokia N 95. The Jasjar is expensive new at around 1900 cheaper on ebay and imported of course.

The N 95 is a smaller device but handles multimedia very well, good camera and I cant fault the browser. Wlan for wireless surfing and the screen is good size too. I watch Sky Mobile TV on it reasonably frequently. When on the Vodafone its HSDPA so its quick as well.

Theres a couple more questions for you

Uh if going by the subject and you're looking at a P910i, then no it's not wlan capable. If looking at a P990i, then no problemo, Wlan capable and you can set your preferences of which networks to access.


If wanting wlan, then make sure you're getting a P990, else if you are getting the older P910i, then you can access the net through the cradle, but not wirelessly without incurring network charges.
