    Once you go 3G or 3.5G (HSDPA), there's no coming back to Edge At least that's how it worked for me. I mostly use mobile inet for email and RSS, news. Occasional skype and instant messaging. When I was traveling for interviews, using phone as wireless modem was life-saving. Even though tethering is not officially allowed with regular data plan (I have ATT), you can still do it and nobody objects. Maybe when you are in the hospital most of the time and have wifi, 3G can become a bit redundant, plus quality of reception is bad in most of the hospital i have been too. So edge may make sense for some low-volume email-checking.
    Bottom line - once you start doing mobile internet, you are hooked
    How did humanity survive so long without internet???

    Unfortunately these are not the key products from skyscape... I got used to pocket medicine, WashU manual, Harrisons etc from skyscape on my PDA. They have A LOT of commercially available useful software. And almost all of it is "modified" for Win5. That's how skyscape became famous among poor IMGs ... LOL

    Unfortunately there is no currently effective way available. There was an emulator of win 5 for os x/iphone, but it was really slow and was d/c.

    Fortunately a lot of win apps analogues (and even better variety) available for iphone thru Cydia. You can also search for it iAppCat.com the single most developed index.

    As to medical apps there are a lot of paid apps from Skyscape and Epocrates available. Epocrates pro may be even free for you, say if you are member of ASCO (Epocrates pro oncology). Sadly but Skyscape is slower b/c it is partly web-based, so no ways to hack it (yet LOL!).

    valdisus, how do you get win mobile apps on iPhone?

    Yeah,
    having iphone and axim is not as convenient as just 1 gadget for all purposes. But like I said there is no such a gadget exist (or available) yet.

    Khamid, I wouldn't agree with comment on iphone It is possibly one the most hacked piece of hardware I have ever seen. LOL!
    Once you got started, unlocked it, jailbroke and installed cydia (done with just 1 soft unlocker program, takes 5 minutes) - you have much more access to FREE software than on any other device (even Win5 based) and can CUSTUMIZE everything! My iphone now looks like vista with sidebar

    Saguara, iphone 1 gen is available new/refurb for 300$ now (unlocked/original/no contract) on ebay. I bought mine refurb for 250$. Just look for a better bargain. Arguably it is pricey, but almost any good gadget cost 200-300$ now (w/o contract).

    And then ATT wants 70$/month for data +calls. Don't take it. Instead go to T-moble. There for 29.99 (300 min) + 5.99 (generic data plan) = 36$ you will have a good deal. Inet will be edge based, but cheap and available everywhere you go. ypu will need just a small hack available in Cydia.

    AND: NEW IPHONE IS COMING OUT THIS SUMMER.

    it may be painful to carry around an iphone, PDA and beeper.
    I like my HTC Kaiser (AT&T Tilt) - real keyboard, brick-hard, win mobile 6 with all software, internet, customization to your taste. Almost bulletproof

    Secret dream - Android-based phone. Maybe G2 when it is out.

    I respect HTC phones in general. New Pro, Magic, Fuze are really good.

    iPhone - great gadget. But I do not like Apple's proprietary approach to business - do not touch that, customize this etc. Plus I don't like overpaying for a brand name But hands downs - in terms of pleasure of use and overall experience - Iphone is superb.

    This is a nice one.
    But, still there is no one that would be as nice as iphone for a calling purposes, so hacked for med soft as Win5 based Pockets (eg Axim x51v), and as hard to kill as a brick
    So I use all of them for specific purposes.

    Donno about deals, but if one want to drool a bit, look at this:
    HTC Touch pro 2
    http://www.htc.com/www/product/touchpro2/overview.html
    Using HTC touch pro now - great toy!
    No limits for customization (only time, I guess ;)).

    There is plenty of deals for touch pro (previous model) nowdays, just google HTC Fuze...-50$-100$ with 2 year contract.
    Dont go for Sprint/Verizon - they are CDMA carriers: it means that you will have more difficult time to find custom ROM's, unlocking soft, tweaks, and so on...GSM development much more agile on the NET.

    Unfortunately at this time Samsung pushes more unproven OSes than Wins. No current good deals.

    Any ideas about new smartphones? I am looking at replacement with Win Mobile 6.1, may be HTC or Samsung. I am not a fun of other unproven OS's.
