New Options for Smartphones

EIT has been supporting Windows Mobile-capable phones for almost two years. These phones can sync with our Exchange service and, if you purchase a data plan as well as a voice plan, you can have access to email wherever you have your phone.

For a long time only Verizon wireless offered compatible smartphones, specifically the Palm Treo 700w and 700wx and the Motorola Q. These phones and Verizon voice and data plans have worked well for a number of staff.

However, many people have been looking for US Cellular options. US Cellular is now offering the Motorola Q with Windows Mobile 5 as an option. If you're interested in a phone that's able to sync with your Outlook/Exchange mailbox and you want to continue with US Cellular, you may want to check this out.

In addition, Verizon has two new smartphones, the Samsung i760 and Motorola Q9m. These phones have Windows Mobile 6, which is the latest version of the Windows Mobile operating system. The i760 is comparable to the Treo with a slightly larger screen, integrated Wi-Fi and separate number and slide-out QWERTY keypads. The i760 also has a stylus for touchscreen input. The Q9m, like the original Q, is not a touchscreen device.

Remember ISU has contracts for both Verizon Wireless and US Cellular.
