    Okay...it looks like ATTWS is getting ready to finally start selling the
    P800 (my local store just received a dummy phone yesterday, and other
    accounts say that it will go on sale at the end of August.)

    Two weeks ago I bought a new iPaq 2200 PocketPC. I'm not a heavy PDA user,
    so I think I would be better off having a single device - I always carry a
    phone, so if the phone has PDA features, I'm more likely to make use of
    them.

    Anyway - I gotta decide whether to keep the iPaq, or take it back before the
    30 days are up (actually, I need to make sure it isn't 14 days) and get a
    P800.

    I currently use a T68i. I consider the phone to be too slow and clumsy.
    I've heard some people say that the P800 is "sluggish". But, _relatively_
    speaking, is it the same magnitude of sluggishness as the T68i? I recently
    played with a T616 as well. It, too, is a bit sluggish, but noticeably
    faster than the T68i.

    So just how slow (or not) is the P800? Does it have enough horsepower for
    advanced applications, like street navigation software?

    Thanks for any comments.

    Well I've had a T68, T68i, Nokia 7650 and then the P800. Normal operation
    of the P800 isn't sluggish at all in my experience. There may be a slight
    delay as it opens a program (no worse a delay than on the nokia 7650,
    another Symbian os phone) but normal use of it is fine.

    Take it easy

    I don't think the P800 is slow at all

    the p800 has a relatively powerful processor, there is minimal if not
    zero slowdown.

    Re: How slow is the P800?

    I have a P800 myself and it's not slow at all. And the advantage to have
    both a PDA and a Cell Phone in the same box is very useful. As you said it
    yourself, you always carry the phone, but the PDA often stays home and you
    miss out to file appointments etc.
