    I'm currently looking to get 3 smartphones on sprint PCS service (moving my
    contracts over from Nextel) I currently have an i930 and its big, heavy,
    horrable on battery life, slow iDEN network, etc.

    Currently our office has an exchange server running on SBS 2003, so my
    biggest concern is being able to get these to sync to get calander
    appoitments, tasks and e-mail. It would be NICE if the phone would integrate
    with microsoft CRM that we use, but it's not a deal breaker. I have full
    access to exchange so I cna make any changes I'd need to so these phones can
    sync.

    I've been looking at the MOTO Q as well as the Palm treo 700WX, what are the
    advantages/disadvantages between the 2? (from what I've read the Q is
    smaller and thinner, the 700WX runs a little faster and has slightly longer
    battery life) is there anything else?

    how does the EVDO network work, do you have to pay extra to access the 3G
    network? or does your phone use it (if available in your area?)


    To sync with exchange do I NEED a phone with windows mobile? (just curious,
    I have nothing against windows mobile)

    anything else you can tell me would be greatly appreciated

    thanks
    Nick

    Re: which smartphone for sprint?

    Palm is releasing Monday an update that will allow Palm devices to sync with
    Exchange.
    That said, you would probably be better with a Windows Mobile device.
    The version of Windows Mobile on the Moto Q may still be the stripped down
    version that allows you to view but not edit Office files. If you need
    that functionality, the Treo 700wx is the only way to go. Also, the Q does
    not have touchscreen functionality. Input is by the keyboard only.

    Re: which smartphone for sprint?

    thanks for the response... I don't belive touchscreen is 100% needed, not
    sure about the mobile office apps, so thanks for that info. do you know much
    about microsoft CRM? I'd LOVE to be able to access that through the
    smartphone, not sure if it's possible or not with either of these. any idea
    how I'd find out?
