[access-uk] Re: Owasys Mobile Phone.

Hi Andrew,

Now you're talking.  The 6630 is a lovely little phone IMHO, and has the
most responsive audio server I have heard with Talks, except for the Nokia
9500, which we are now testing too.  The 9500 is a monster of a phone,
having a QWERTY keyboard, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, you name it, it's got it, and I
am really looking forward to release of Talks for it.

All the best

  Hi Steve,

  Have given it a bit more thought and will probably go with the 6630 (?) -
but will look at deals etc.

  Hi Andrew,

  Well the size is certainly smaller than your N-Gage.  It is more like the
size of the 3650 if you have seen it, perhaps a bit thicker.  It would
certainly do what you want, though I don't know about the battery life, as I
only saw it for about an hour.  But if making calls and the odd text is all
you want, then it's probably fine, though the speech quality is vastly
inferior to that of Talks.

  All the best

    Hi Steve,

    Do you know anything about the battery life and the relative size on
this phone?  One thing I have an issue with my N-Gage is the fact it is
quite large, plus the battery drains very quickly, thus I was thinking of
one of these phones.  Will I be disapointed, I only use the N-Gage for
ringing and text messages?

    Andrew.

    Hi Steve,

    Depends on what features you want.  If you want a bog standard mobile
phone, then it's OK, though I don't rate the speech very highly at all.
It's a kind of Spanglish, English-cum-Spanish.  Text messages may be a
little hard to hear, though I only saw it at RNIB for about an hour.  But it
does the basics very well, and certainly has some interesting ringtones.
What you won't get is a display, so sighted people won't be able to help
you, you won't be able to transfer ring tones from your PC, as you have no
Bluetooth, and in fact, you won't be able to download ring tones either, as
you have no way of communicating with the phone.  But if all you want to do
is to ring mum or dad, or the hospital, it's fine, though 300 quid is a
little steep I would suggest.

    I hope this helps a little.

    All the best

      Hi list,

      Have any of you yet used the Owasys 22C mobile phone?  I'd like to
know what you think and, is it worth getting.

      Steve
