MSNBC’s Krakow Calls Nokia e62 “Best Smartphone Ever”

MSNBC’s Gary Krakow says the new quad-band GSM Nokia e62 is the best smartphone ever. The camera-less phone has a QWERTY thumb keyboard and looks like a Motorola Q or stretched out Blackberry. Krakow strikes me as platform agnostic based on past reviews. So, I’m taking his opinion at face value. I wonder, though, how well the phone syncs contacts and calendar data with, say, Microsoft Outlook or Apple’s iCal. The article also doesn’t mention how well its web browser works (probably Opera) or if it has an RSS feed reader.

Upgrade an HP iPAQ 2215?

Reader I.I.B. asks: I wish to know if my ipaq 2215 can upgrade to windows mobile 5.0?? or windows mobile 2003 2nd Edition????

Unfortunately, HP did not provide any kind of upgrade path for the iPAQ 2215 Pocket PC. However, current generation Pocket PCs (without phone capability) are reasonably priced as they slowly disappear from the product  landscape. The 416MHz Dell Axim X51 is currently $224 and the HP iPAQ rx1955 is $299.99.
