But the MPx200 uses Smartphone 2002 - the device in the kit has 2003 so for developers planning for the future, this is the way to go right now.

Did anyone see the price? $499 for an unlocked GSM phone without a contract. Now if it was CDMA...

I would love to know if they have fixed the problem with charging through the USB cable. It is the only thing that stops me from upgrading to 2003. If anyone knows please let me know.

The phone is great - I am very happy with my development phone purchase.

hey guys,

it would be nice to get the Motorola phone :-)

I was wondering, is there an emmulator for Smartphone like the SDK for PocketPC ? There's an application I would like to build for smartphone.

I'm holding out for a TriBand MPX200 if possible.

btw, Aussie, good luck in the Rugby World Cup Semi's Tonight! :P

Yes, I'm quite sure there's an emulator in the SDK - even with the phone, it's faster to test on the PC.

I'm holding out for a TriBand MPX200 if possible.

You can get exactly that right here:

I bought another Smartphone Developer Kit during PDC'03, but when I tried to sign into MSN Messenger... "Sign-in to MSN Messenger Service failed because the service is not compatible with this version of the program." :(

I guess it's only a matter of time before a new ROM update is released that hopefully allows us to use the MSN Messenger service again from our WM2003 Dev Kit Smartphones... Any news on when this might be? I think all the issues highlighted (missing T9 functionality, USB charging not working etc.) could easily be addressed with one final ROM update.

Still, it's great to finally be able to demo .NET Web Services on a working WM2003 Smartphone! :D So, this is the way to go right now for WM2003 development, until I can get my hands on an O2 Xphone (http://www.myO2Smartphone.com). 8)
