This is a very tough one indeed. Another advantage of the XDA III is that it will be available sooner than the 9500. But if the keyboard is very important for you, I think the 9500 will be better...

My only fears with a PPC Phone are the battery (will it last a day with intensive use???) and how good are they as a phone (since the phone is just an app running in the background, not a symbiose like with 9500 or the P900). I admit that XDAIII is tempting, but I think I can restrain myself :) Especially since rumours about a killer XDA IV have already popped up...

I don't know how reliable this is but there is some rumour about the IV here:

If you say that the keyboard on the XDA III is great,i'd say that the one one the 9500 is a gift from god ;)

It's a Pocket PC with a phone circuit. It may suit some people, but it sure as anything won't suit my needs. Where's the qwerty keyboard for a start?

There is a QWERTY keyboard.You just slide the rear part of the device down - ala 7650 but its only good for thung typing since the keys are too small.

I would still consider the Nokia 9500 elite than XDA III, II or whatever. Simply because a PDA is a PDA a phone is a phone ;) :icon14:

I don't touch screen especially on a small screen, and ultra slim is nothing for me. Big things come in big packages ;) Heh, look at that PDA keyboard its too small, I would need a twiser or a sharpened pencil to type with that keyboard, unless they provide there touch screen key. But then again PDA's don't really amaze me that much. :cool:

Exactly. A Pocket PC phone and a Nokia 9500 are two VERY different animals. Using a PPC as a phone is really quite cumbersome, let alone as a PDA.

If you want a keyboard then IMHO you only have one real choice.
