Kevin gets his head stuck in the MoTR Mailbox….
Listener e-mail from David: He’s got a Samsung Q1 UMPC (woo-hoo!) and wants to upgrade MSN Messenger; can he still use ink for his chats? Sure can, even with Windows Live Messenger beta. David is also scopin’ out a Nokia N93; Matt shares some differences between the N93 and the N90.
Listener e-mail from Virgil: can I get a Symbian converged device for under..say…$300? Best fit for Virgil’s requirements might be the N91 but it’s expensive. Next alternative might be the N61.
Virgil also asks about “dumb”-phones vs.smartphones and tethering with UMPCs.
