Post The Test

Submitted for your thoughts..

I suggest a standardized test for all "pocket PC/Phone/Smartphone"s.

There seems to be a whole mess of new phones with PDA functionality, to the point where I'm getting a little stressed out. I have an Apache and my current, an N95-1 and N95-3. My friends have, Iphone, 6800, Ocean, N95-2 and Blackberry pearl. Needless to say it can get a bit confusing with 6 people trying to look up directions, play youtube clips and email/sms each other funny(read: dirty) pictures and videos all at the same time.

What's even more confusing is that, we're all such fanboys of our own devices that we will not believe that someone's else's phone is better than our own.

"So could you help write an email with your N95? Oh wait... you don't have a keyboard... nevermind.."

You can see how this geeky tech night went.

Which brings me back to the reason for post. A full fledged and standardized PDA-phone test that includes a true scoring system which negates as much "fanboyism" as possible.

The Test.

Using the latest firmware, a fresh format and whatever available software you can find. (at no cost?)

Please keep score.

Please add questions and comments that you think are good for ALL PDA-PHONES. This test is in Beta form. And by Beta, I mean I just did this off the top of my head in 10 minutes. I want to get this to a good stage and Java it with a database.

I have tried my best to keep out perception based questions like "ease of use for touchscreen".


Also please respond in this way.
