There is quite a saga going on with delays in shipping out the QTEK 9100 devices, but it now looks like at least one batch is here in the US waiting to clear Customs. I paid for overnight delivery so I may get it before the end of the week. In the meantime, I still have the pre-production test QTEK 9100 as I wait for the supplier to get back to me with shipping info. I have been pleased with its performance and am satisfied with my decision to sell the Treo 650. I do still have the 650 sitting in a box with all the accessories and thought about breaking it out again, but I am now determined to stop being wishy-washy and stick with my decision to go with the HTC Wizard. These will be great if they come to US carriers, but I am happy I paid a bit more money to get one for sure since we don’t know if they really ever will make it to T-Mobile or Cingular.
BTW, Cingular and HP just announced the availability of the HP Mobile Messenger 6515 device. While the device does have integrated GPS, the use of WM 2003 SE on a device with a thumb keyboard is not a very good move since keyboard integration is weak prior to WM 5.0. Also, I read in reviews that the device is a dog and has a short battery life. HP has not been very successful with its Phone Edition devices and US carriers should just focus on bringing high quality HTC devices to the US market. Consumers who are not device addicts like me probably won’t have a great experience with the 6515 and this may turn them off on Windows Mobile devices.
