Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Large memory, got every cable needed overall a good package.
Bad points:
Windows Mobile not great, nearly a minute to boot, silly things like answer a call when the phone is keypad locked and you can't change the volume during a call. Software clunky compared to say a Nokia phone or PDA. Would like to assign the user button to something other than internet explorer. Windows Media Player not great, Mobile 2003 version has no tone controls
