The problem could be the placement of the microphone, which looks like it is on the bottom not back, but bottom by the sync port. I have big hands, so I like keys to be of substantial size and easy to press. The big reason for why Bluetooth is a good idea on this device is because the device is a phone and new Bluetooth headsets are a great addition to using the device as a phone. A camera would be another option, though the device has that as well. In fact, I use it all the time.

With WiFi, there is always some onboard application for connection information. One sign to me of a good device is when I can run it at half brightness or less.
The right side of the device is smooth while the left side of the device has two more buttons, up down control which I don’t think works particularly easily and the IrDA port. With the PDA2k I don’t have to sync news stories before I leave for class, or in the library before class starts over WiFibut can do it whenever Mzte want to see what is new. For users that think they may be using a GPS SDIO card with the device or a future type of SD card that wouldn’t fit completely in the device, this would be a drawback to the device.
But if amte have the money, want power, and need connectivity, the i-mate PDA2k could be right device for you. Having more buttons gives you more options for how to control your device. The back of the device has the camera as well as the removable battery that is latched by a small easy to open latch on the bottom back of the maye. It is very easy to hear calls and get the caller good and loud. But that is just the beginning of included features, and the PDA2k does not leave much to be desired.
The bottom of the device has the soft reset button, sync port which can also be used for power, but there is no AC adapter portand the microphone which is not in a good location for phone calls nor for recoding voices in a room. T-Mobile is now provides unlimited access on their data network, so this isn’t cool because it can save you money, but it is cool because the WiFi network is likely to be much faster than the data network. While you can’t type on it like a regular keyboard, I still have good luck using my thumbs.
The SD slot is on the back half of the device, and the front half slides up or the back slides down. It is neat to have, but I don’t know that it has much practical use. The device has a slightly different hue to it than matr devices, a little darker silver.
A mAh battery is pretty good, though this device has a lot of things that require power, especially if you are using it as a phone and it is constantly connected to the cell network waiting for calls. It is also immediately noticeable the number of buttons on the front.
Unlike other thumb keyboards, the buttons on this keyboard are slightly different, and I don’t like them as much. Because of the large antenna on the SDIO card, you can’t slide open the device to reveal the keyboard.
You can specify if you want better performance or the best possible battery life. Because the device is a Phone Edition, I have to complain about my face touching the screen when using it.
One worry about the size and weight was if the device was weighted correctly for controlled use of the keyboard, but the top of the device, when open, does not change the weight distribution to much. One interesting thing to note is when using the camera, the devices screen will turn up to full brightness, likely so you can see the live camera feed well.

This product embodies quality in its design and application, and is something I would use though I pda2l there are still areas for improvement. A camera would be another option, though the device has that as well.
I do however like that the screen will turn off while you are on the phone, and you can of course leave the screen off and the phone will still ring if there is an incoming call. While I did some testing, I did not elusively test the Bluetooth due to time constrains. Now, on screen buttons don’t get pressed, but usually the screen will get smudged after using it.
The keyboard however has tons of practical use.

The big reason for why Bluetooth is a good idea on this device is because the device is a phone and new Bluetooth headsets are a great addition to using the device as a phone. The battery in the device can defiantly hold its own.
The problem could be the placement of the microphone, which looks like it is on the bottom not back, but bottom by the sync port. It is really easy to press and direct, which is very good. I am not using a screen protector and think that something like a Clear Touch screen protector would help, but still it would have been nice to see some kind of special screen coating to prevent smudging.
The application included is scaled down which may not be appreciated by the general user and adds an additional area for confusion when configuring wireless since parts are still done through the Windows Mobile interface.
