Hi Gena,

Operator not knowing with letter by letter I am afraid my dear <Smile>.
Simply press the Talks key and then hold down the number 2 for about a
second.  You will hear Cursor Mode is letters, or something like that.  Do
it again for Words, and then again for Original Behaviour.  This is a three
way toggle.  Original Behaviour is how the phone behaves without Talks.  In
a text message, if you press right arrow, you will go straight to the next
message, so Talks gives you the choice.

You can edit Word documents on both platforms, Symbian or Mobile 5.  Mobile
5 has it built in though.  You get Pocket Word.  However, in Symbian, you
can buy Quick Office for about 29 bucks.  This will give you the ability to
read and edit Word files, and is compatible with Talks, and I believe it
also works with Mobile Speak too, though I have not tried that combination.
Symbian is far more stable than Mobile 5, but of course, Mobile 5 is
Windows, so what do you expect <Smile>.

All the best

Steve

Hi

I accept what you say about USB 1, it would take a long time to use that =
or the wireless B to fill the 30Gb hard disk that is a part of the Icon. =
 I wonder what the latest capacity a mobile phone has today and what =
methods there are for filling that capacity?  On the issue of modern =
phones.  What is the more advanced and versatile platform?  I understand =
that Simbian and Mobile 5 are where the battle lines are drawn?  Am I =
right in thinking that pocket word is coming to the Mobile 5 platform =
thus, we'll have to purchase a non Nokia handset should we want to use a =
word processor?  Because we already have access to PDA's a speaking =
solution will be more or less immediately available?  Are my assumptions =
and understandings correct on these issues?

I understand that some people prefer main stream products and agree to =
some extent.  However, if specialist products flag particular obstacles =
in main stream products, the designers of main stream products may =
incorporate a solution in future generations of their products.  Anyway, =
I still enjoy and use the Book Courier I purchased from you.

I guess I need the full or professional version of talks, to read letter =
by letter?  I have the standard version as provided by Vodafone and =
either I'm doing something wrong, or standard talks on the 6630 can't =
read letter by letter?

Hi Gena,

Not at all.  My business interest is completely disinterested here.  In
general, I will always prefer mainstream, as opposed to specialist =
devices,
because they are all so far behind, including the Icon.  USB 1.1 for
goodness' sake, that went out with the ark.

Of course, Talks can do letter by letter, word by word, line by line, or
whatever you want.

The biggest memory card, not necessarily MMC that I know of is 2GB.  Few
phones use MMC nowadays, it is usually Mini or micro SD.

All the best

Hi

Really?  What is the biggest MMC?  Or do phones have 2 slots?  Can Talks =

or the other phone readers allow navigation letter by letter?  What =3D
phone has a word processor.  I think your business interest is some what =

Hi Gena,

If you go to the Levelstar web site, http://www.levelstar.com, there are
several podcasts, which describe just about all of the Icon's functions =
=3D
down
to the nth degree.

For myself, I don't want one yet, primarily because it is only USB 1.1
compliant, which means it's going to be damned slow at transferring =3D
files.
Not only that, most of the functions can be performed on a good Symbian
phone.  The only function I haven't found as readily, is a good RSS =3D
reader,
but a good phone with Talks can do just about all the Icon can do, and =
=3D
is a
lot cheaper.

All the best

Hi

As a Linux fan, I've been waiting for the Icon since last year's Csun.  =
=3D
=3D3D
It sounds like a great device, well thought out and have none of the =
=3D3D
restrictions that other dedicated devices have when integrating with =
=3D3D
other equipment.

Alas, it is not available to us here in the UK, nor can American friends =
=3D
=3D3D
send us one over.

I'd like to read reviews from actual users as it has been available for =
=3D
=3D3D
some time now, to see how good it really is proving to be.  As a blind =
=3D
=3D3D
developer has produced most of the interface from the ground up.

While checking out further info about the Tapmemo, I discovered another
PDA type product.  This one has 30GB of memory, plays MP3s and daisy.
Can be used as an Audible  player and comes with an optional docking
station which turns it into a note-taker.  More info at
