Success HK have the latest techno releases from around the world, heres the info on this one:
The Xplore m98 is an excellent attempt at miniaturising a full PalmOS device into a tiny clamshell design ?apart from the 1.3in 260,000-colour screen, the triband GSM phone has WAP 2.0, GPRS Class 10 and support for MP3 ringtones. The phone’s memory is also expandable ?underneath the battery there’s a card slot that supports TransFlash media.
The Xplore X98 has two different graphical user interfaces ?one that works much like a phone with simplified icons, and the other is the full PalmOS interface. The logic is that the regular phone interface is meant to keep things simple and allow you to quickly access phone functions without having to scroll through an intimidating number of icons. However, if you want to access the full PDA functions, all you have to do is press a button and the familiar PalmOS graphical user interface will appear.
On the PalmOS side, the phone comes with all the usual applications, including a version of the QuickOffice suite, which allows you to view and edit Word and Excel documents, as well as access e-mail and view attachments. Of course, some concessions had to be made to keep the size of the phone down. While the touchscreen display has a good resolution of 176 x 220pixels, the small size of the screen might make text entry a little challenging. However, the phone makes up for it by allowing you enter text anywhere on the screen instead of just in a small, delineated area. This is in addition to the regular keypad input method.
