I thinking of getting an HTC all singing and dancing pda phone. If anyone has an internet enabled phone can you actually see what you are doing on such a small screen - for instance - could you actually book a flight - The HTC screen size is 2.8 inches
I couldn't possibly comment on the visibilty, but I've been looking at mobile internet deals and some of the supposedly "unlimited mobile internet" offers have caps as low as 50mb a month, so check the usage limits on any contract before you sign anything...
I have an HTC with a slightly smaller screen than the one you are considering. It is ok for sites that are set up for mobiles ie have a version for PDA. I find it is hopeless for other sites as you have to scroll around too much and cannot see enough. It depends on which site you want to book a flight and how it has been set up.
Depends upon which browser you use. If you download and run Opera for Mobiles it loads the full page and you can enlarge small areas by tapping on the touch screen on my HTC. This makes all the page very readable but is slightly slower than browsing on a full size screen.
and the screen is fine for browsing - as long as you're not planning a long session. I haven't used it to book a flight yet, but I reckon I could do it without too much hassle - my phone has a very good zoom tool.
Thanks all for the advice. I was not planning on making a habit of booking flights from the phone but it's the sort of thing that could well crop up. I am actually thinking of getting this HTC so if anyone has any comments - click here
