I love my PDA2k. Its my phone, its my PDA, eBook reader, game machine, etc. I also use Smartner Duality on it for push (BlackBerry-styled) e-mail. Its a great way of getting push e-mail at a relatively low cost ($5/ month or $60/ year via Handango). It is truly awesome!
Because I now get mail no matter where I am, I’ve been using my PDA2k’s slide up keyboard a lot. The thing has really come loose! Its not slamming shut on me yet…YET…; but I’m really concerned. The keyboard is held open only by friction and obviously the screws that are holding it down have loosened in the 4 months that I’ve had the device.
This is a HUGE design flaw! The people at i-mate need to fix this problem or offer an easy way of getting the device serviced or swapped out.
I’m going to have to post on this at pocketnow.com where I am a Senior Editor. Some how, I think its going to be the only way to get my device fixed without being deviceless for a month or more… Maybe I’ll get it fixed after I purchase the new iPAQ Mobile Messenger hx6500.
