PDA Buyer’s Guide Reviews the Motorola MPx220

Motorola MPx220

And they like it well enough:

“It looks like a regular cell phone but boy does it pack a lot of features and power! If you’re looking for a phone that offers easy syncronization to Outlook and MS Exchange, can carry much the same data as a PDA but don’t need the size, features and touch screen of a PDA, then do consider the MPx220. However, if you make plenty of calls in noisy public places, you may want to steer clear of the MPx220 because earpiece volume is low. If you plan to use wired or Bluetooth headsets then you won’t have to worry about this. We do hope Motorola issues an updater to increase the built-in earpiece and mic volume.”

They do make mention of the lackluster quality of photos taken by the camera, even though it’s 1.3 megapixel, and also the low speaker/earpiece volume during calls.

Isn’t it interesting how this phone was lusted after for so long by so many geeks (myself inlcuded), and when it finally came out, these relatively small issues allowed it be upstaged by the out-of-nowhere Audiovox SMT5600?
