Are you thinking about getting a new cellphone or pda phone? Well, my HTC8125 with 2G just broke so I am thinking about getting a new phone.
First thing you should really consider when buying a new cellphone is 3G support especially if it’s a pda smartphone you are buying.
For your information, my HTC8125 with 2G is about as fast as a 115200 bps modem for browsing the internet. It does support wifi but even with wifi, it’s very slow and I don’t recommended for anyone.

Anyways, here’s a Zedomax Review of 3G Cellphones:
Here’s a video review of it:
Samsung SGH-F700 is one of my favorite targets. The only thing I don’t like is that it runs Windows.
i-Mate Ultimate 5150 does offer 3G but doesn’t really look stylish or visually appealing to me.
The 400Mhz HTC 8525 supports 3G but having experienced a 200Mhz HTC 8125, I know it’s still going to be very very slow. The HTC 8125 pretty much lost all my confidence for that company so definitely a no-no. If HTC wants to prove otherwise, send me one! Plus my HTC 8125 just died recently only after 5 months of regular abuse! (My old samsung lasted more than 3 years!)
Here’s a 3G card for your PC:
I heard Verizon Broadband is pretty fast too.
Here’s a list of non-3G phones:
(Don’t get these if you are going to use the internet a lot…)
- new HTC P3350
- i-mate JAQ4
- iPhone – There are rumors that there will be 3G for iPhone in 2008!?! (R u kiddin’ me?)
- RIM’s Blackberry 8300
What’s your choice of 3G cellphone?
