SPV E200 Smart Phone May Be Coming to U.S.
High Tech Computer has received approval from the FCC to release the SPV E200, a smart phone that runs Windows Mobile 2003. However, whether it is actually available in the U.S. is up to the wireless carriers.

The E200 seems like a really nice phone...but I'm sure as hell not going to pay $763 bucks for it! That price is absolutely ridiculous if not outright insane! Personally, I refuse to pay anything >$500 for a phone even if claims to be the fountain of youth...
On another note, there's a really nice review of the E200 vs SPV you can read here. It gives a really nice overall picture of the E200 FYI...

Wow, that looks very impressive. Hopefully the price will be significantly less when it gets released in the U.S. (which, hopefully, it will ).Covert of www.cghm.8k.com

I don't find HTC name (recent date) when i search the FCC website on Granted Bluetooth Devices (fill in the dates under granted date range and the word bluetooth under Product Description)

I really need someone to explain the appeal of the smartphone to me.
I recently purchase and later returned the Motorola MPx200 from AT&T. Part of my dissatisfaction was due to RF issues that are not related to the OS - but the OS was an issue as well.
Had my company deployed Exchange 2003 (or even 2000) - I can see the appeal of this phone going up - as it can be easily and always sync'd - wireless access to email etc. Unfortunately that option wasn't available to me - but I knew that going in.
I guess my complaint is just that these phones are not PDA replacements. At least not for the way I use my PDA. I can't see going into a meeting (and I tried) and taking notes on what was going on. There are few programs currently available for the smartphone - and nothing about this form factor allows for easy data entry.
T9 can work - and you can add new appointments etc. -but realistically, this is a read-only phone. It sync'd perfectly with Outlook - but stand alone / data entry is just a nightmare.
