    Smile SonyEricsson P900?

    Is there anyone who have experience with the SE P900 PDA+GSM?

    I'm looking to buy 2 of those, but need to be sure I can use it to ssh to servers, check mail etc.

    Also, can I set a task in the P900 to check mail every 5 minutes and alert when there is a new mail? A so called "Auto Get Mail" feature in the tungsten t3

    How about virusses? Are there virusses for the symbian os?

    Thanks!

    There very sweet, nice interface, very nice. Yes you can check email, and i would say you can use ssh to servers using a application. Yes automatically the P900 checks emails and does a ring or what ever you set it up for if you set up the phone correctly.

    Don't think they are many viruses for symbian Os.

    Thank you all for the information!

    How is the speed of loading webpages? I heard GPRS is around 50kb/s, is that correct?

    Since the P900 has a built-in modem, can I use my laptop to go online through bluetooth and the P900?

    Also, how much MB's of GPRS do you use monthly?

    I've found that a great combination is the P800 (and I don't see why the P900 wouldn't be better) + Sony UX40. Little PDA, good keyboard and a few nice SSH clients. Now I can truely work anywhere

    Indeed. One of my friends is on O2 PAYG and he doesn't get billed at all for his usage, even if he has no credit! Also with some packages you get alot of free data with O2

    If only the P800/900 had the capability for broadband speed, we'd all be happy campers That is the one downfall. I'm seeing more and more PDA's having the ability to transfer data at higher speeds than the p800/900 can.

    Ive been using the p900 for a long while now, excellent phone /pda you can get putty on there to admin your servers and you can check your email and set it up to auto check however often you want it to. Its also a great all round phone, has a nice calendar, reminder feature etc which syncs with Outlook.

    Ive tried the Treo but much prefer the P900

    No, it is not a lot - you will find that you will easily get through 20MB a month

    Ok

    I need to use it for emails, tickets (kayako's wapversion), some cpanel management, ssh work and of course a little surfing.

    How much would I need if I would do it daily?

    How much are you using currently?

    Why would you need to use WAP when you can browse the web normally?

    Kayako has a wap version (no images etc.), it should work with grps I think.

    Is page loadtime good on the P900?

    Also, where can I find ssh client for the P900?
