The Smartphone's breathtaking design includes its 12-numeric keypad and a semi-auto sliding QWERTY keyboard, which not only allows you to key in messages with minimal effort but also fits your style and preferences. In addition, the C500 features quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as WiFi b/g and Bluetooth 2.0. Also featured is a 2 megapixel camera for photos and videos; UMTS or even HSDPA is left."</i><br /><br /><img src="http://www.smartphonethoughts.com/images/paxton-20070507-dopodc500.jpg" alt="User submitted image" title="User submitted image"/> <br /><br />I wish this Windows Mobile 6 device would launch here in the US. Dopod is launching the C500 also known as the HTC Vox. I think this device is going to sell like hotcakes. From what I've seen the screen looks gorgeous. I am perfectly happy with my Dash and the C500 (Vox) doesn't add enough new features to make me want to switch but I do like the style of this phone. So where do you fit in? Are you going to buy one? Are you content with what you already have? Or, are you waiting for something else down the road? Let us know!

I would love to move from my t-mobile SDA to this phone. Just need to find a distributor &amp; a 'reasonable' price. :roll:

I picked up one of these last week and it is the best SmartPhone I've owned to date. :D

You can view my pictures of it here (http://blogs.sqlxml.org/bryantlikes/archive/2007/05/01/unboxing-the-vox.aspx).

I purchased mine from Mobile Planet for less than I paid for my MTeor and my SP5, so I think it is a pretty good deal.

Where did you find the carrier settings for your phone? The only problem I am having with mine is that it seems to drop the data connection, and then I have to restart the phone to get it back. Most of the settings are the same as on WM5, but there are a acouple of new ones, like CHAP, which I can't find any reference too. I am on ATT.

Check out http://pdadb.net for something really worth waiting for. Namely, the HTC S730 (HTC Wings). The specs are truly awesome and the device is 20 grams lighter than the Vox.
Also on pdadb.net you will find the HTC S720, a 3G Vox version for the USA.
