Mossberg takes on MS Smartphones

Dec 11 2003 - 12:41 PM ET | Review, Smartphone
Walter Mossberg's latest column in the Wall Street Journal is all about smart phones. He has been using both the Motorola MPx200 and the Samsung i600: bq. "Both phones worked OK. Their big flaw is that the Microsoft software is painfully slow to identify incoming callers, even if they are calling from numbers included in the phone's address book. The process is so slow that in a dozen tests, neither phone ever identified a known incoming caller on its screen before the calls went to voice mail. Microsoft and the phone makers are working on the problem." Overall, Mossberg still liked the trusty Treo 600 more than either of the Microsoft phones he tested.
