Is this phone for me?

I’ve read over the faqs and threads (and I am sure I missed something) but I am still not clear on something.

To start off with what I am looking for is a device that will:

a.Allow me to use IM (AOL, Yahoo, MSN, etc). It seems there is software for this that lets me do that.

b.Allow me to browse the web. Now I have read threads that say people use the IE on it or get Opera but I haven’t seen videos/pictures of how it works and how the websites actually look. Any links to this would be appreciated.

c.Allow me to get directions. Now Google maps or MSN equivalent seem to do this? Basically how do I get from A to B and then get the nifty map I can zoom in on, etc. while driving or whatnot.

d.This is the big on that I am confused on. Turn by Turn directions, is this offered for this phone? From sprint I see they have a navigation option for this but does it actually work on this phone?

Is this the phone that will allow me achieve what I want or are there other phones someone might recommend?

I have the 6700 and know that you could use a BT gps receiver and software to give u turn by turn directions, not sure about how that works on the 6800 as i havn't gotten it yet, as for IE i use it on mine works fine, there are some issues with some sites and you need to scroll across them due to them not being formatted for ppc use, i love mine..

fudd6901: Most of what you are looking for will not available on the Mugol from the manufacture. (I do not think any phones would). But there are softwares that you can search on the web and learn more about your specific needs. Just Google them.

a) For IM there are couple 3rd party softwares, IMPlus or Angile Messenger.

b) Use can web browsing with PIE (included) or add Opera, Minimo. However they are limited compare to the PC.

c) MSN live search or Google provides good search for direction (I prefer live search)

d) There are navigation softwares that can provide your needs but you will need the bluetooth receiver to track your position. This topic is available some where in the Appache forum. If you sign up with Sprint navigation service, I don't know if Sprint provides turn by turn voice assistance or not.

Most ppc phone will provide the needs you are looking for. But the difference in the Mogul is you have alot more internal storage space and the future of REV A (3G internet broadband speed).

Apparently Sprint will offer navigation through TeleNav. However, the date has not been set.

As far as the other questions... they have been answered pretty well above.

Check out this video on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ya_qr6vvs00 and then fast forward to 2 minutes and 20 seconds to see some web browsing.
