Hong Kong Tech Phooey

a tech junkie from Hong Kong

In Depth Review – Dopod 838pro


Well the phone been out for quite some time, 2 months to be exact in Hong Kong.  It features the most up-to-date technologies you can find for a PocketPC Phone.  Spec wise,  GSM Quadband (850/900/1800/1900)+WCDMA Triband (850/1900/2100), EDGE/GPRS/UMTS, Bluetooth (v2.0) and WiFi, IrDA FIR and primary and secondary cameras featuring 2.0 megapixel CMOS w/flash and mirror and 0.1 megapixel CMOS for video calls and self-portraits, video recording capable.  Together with a nice full qwerty keypad, this baby is what I reckon to be the best phone or smartphone around.

Usually when a phone like this comes out, we’ll get tons of previews and reviews, but I always reckon that the best time to review a phone like this would be a month or two after it is launched so that others would have ample time to test drive it out.  The following review from Judie at Gear Diary is one of the best I’ve seen so far and it’s pretty accurate according to my experience with the phone (since late Sept).  I’ve posted a useful tip/comment after the review regarding scratches that can easily made on the silver inverted C cover.  One thing I didn’t mentioned is that although calibration problem as seen with the Taiwanese version were not present, but somehow calibration is a bit off after 2 months of use. 

Full review from Gear Diary is here.
