    Default Which is better, the Touch or the 6800 at Alltel?

    :?: Hi,

    I'm a newbie at this whole PDA subject. I recently bought the Blackberry Pearl, and returned it because I simply could not use the small keyboard. Also navigating my way thru all of the menus, was a bit overwhelming. I decided on the HTC Touch, but when I got ready to purchase it, the sales person talked me into the HTC PPC6800, because of the large keyboard advantage. So, now I have that phone, and it is much simpler to navigate than the Pearl. I also like the stylus option, and touch screen capabilities. But, interestingly, I find that I hardly ever use that large keyboard. And that is why I bought this one! (and paid $100 more) I now wonder if the Touch with its large icons, etc., would have been the better choice for me afterall. HELP!!!

    Should I keep the 6800? Or, go for the Touch? Time is running out... as far as going back to Alltel for another exchange.

    I personally like the touch a lot better. The size of the touch is a major thing for me. Its so much smaller.
    Its going to work about the same as the 6800 so there wont be new menus to learn.

    If you want to know more just ask.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Does the Touch have a slide out qwerty keyboard like the 6800? Or does the keyboard just appear on the screen? If so, do you have to use a stylus, or are the keys large enough to use fingers? Thanks again! :?:

    No keyboard that slides out

    But it does have big buttons on the screen that are fine for your hand. You can even use the stylus if you want but its set up for real easy one handed use.
