Hi From Bonnie Scotland

Hey guys

Just about to order 860 from shirtpocket.  Just wondering if there is anyone else in (not so!) sunny Scotland?

Cheers

JP

Hi JP,

Sorry, but I'm not from/in Bonny Scotland (I'm a Londoner), but I will contribute that I am a UK SL-C860 user, and I love it! Before I bought an SL-C860 I had the typical SL-5500 and loved that too... but the 860 is so much better. Faster, lots of application memory, absolutely beautiful screen, nicer build quality, the  keyboard is a lot nicer, the battery lasts a lot longer, the on-board speaker is cool, the jog dial and side-mounted enter/cancel buttons make it into a veritable mp3 player.

After moving on to the 860, the 5500 has been relegated. I advise the Cacko ROM 1.21 for the C860. This ROM works well for me.

Enjoy,
Edo.

Hullo.
I've just received my c860 from ShirtPocket and hail from the Glorious Kingdom of Fife.

What a magic piece of kit!  The screen.  The keyboard.  The fact its different!

I'm still a Linuxbeginner, but have had every PDA platform known to man.  Okay so the Z lacks some of the polished 3rd party PIM apps such as Iambic Agendus (palm) or PocketInformant (PPC) but I can live with KO/PI (for now, at least!)

And thankfully it sync'd to Outlook first time for me.  TCP/IP workig a treat, apparently.
Which is probably just as well......

Regards,
Neil
