$549? That's about #20 these days, isn't it? ;)

The RRP on the P900 is #549, so the usual #1=$1 conversion factor seems to
apply. OK, so you're looking at the P800, but the difference seems to be
mainly in the firmware and case design.

The P900 makes a lousy phone if you just want to use it as a phone though.
All that PDA functionality gets in the way.

ObOldTech: The P900 makes a lovely Viewdata terminal though, and it's faster
over GPRS (assuming the server is Internet-connected, of course) than at
1200/75 :)

The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once.
