Please keep me posted!

They SHOULD work and are cheaper than the P800 with possibly 
better specs, but 3 have supposedly locked them down as far
as installing new apps.  They should be unlockable since
obviously 3 has no influence here, but... but...
Also, bluetooth requires a firmware patch to enable, but
the capability is in there.  I'm not ready to risk it yet.

The P900 (P800 with a few refinements) is due shortly, so
perhaps the P800 will plummet in price.

This decision would be so much easier if Nokia would make
their Communicator with GPRS.  Morons.  A year ago this was
the only close contender when I got the sidekick.  

Also, have you seen the BenQ?
