Good: The styling, the various connectivity methods (Bluetooth, IR, and wireless
Bad: Small amount of built in RAM
Comment: Not a bad phone. Offering multiple ways of connecting with other devices (the Wi-Fi option is a great addition). However, it is let down by the low-spec CPU built into it, this becomes apparent when trying to use an app such as Skype. Generally though, this is a good PDA/phone, with no major problems.
Good: lots of features all work well together
Bad: media player
Comment: a great phone, recommend using alternative mp3 player software though.
Good: Wi-Fi,Windows Mobile, PUSH email, EDGE technology, not on PAYG (keeps the Chavs away!)
Bad: Would be nice to have a keypad BUT I guess this would make the phone bigger
Comment: This phone, in my opinion, has set the standard for how mobile phones will evolve over the next few years. Primarily this phone will be considered a business phone but seeing how mobile technology is moving I can see this transitioning into the mainstream mobile phone sector due to its size and affordability. It's a perfect balance between Pocket PC operations and normal mobile phone useage
Geeky Tech stuff... Wi-Fi capability on this phone is superb. I've downloaded SKYPE so I get all my international VoIP calls free when I connect from a wireless Hotspot. Active Sync is a smart way of syncronising various data options from laptop or PC. The PUSH email facility renders the need for a Blackberry redundant. Next step is to load TomTom Navigator on this device for in-car SatNav. I am really impressed by this piece of kit... 10/10 to Orange!
Good: Extra features
Bad: The Jury is still out!
Comment: Just got my new M600.
First Impressions are good, very good... However, the build quality is still very acceptable, but as it is not the same nice silver/wipe clean cover as the M500. Eating your pie and chips will leave fingerprints on the plastic.
I have lots of applications from the M500, will they run OK? The processor speed is a bit of a concern, however only time will tell if it's a show stopper.
In the short term, I'm glad I've upgraded.
