Later versions will come in various bold colors.   Mgr and Exec are 8 or 16 mb.

Announced but not final product Mic button is the only button on the side. The rest are on the top.  Docking station folds up. The Nino 200 does not support the clip on modem.  

 

 

Notes:

Systems with large caches will generally perform faster even though they do not have the fastest clock speed.

The larger dot pitch for the displays are easier to read.

Battery life is based on manufacturers claims, your mileage will vary.

The Uniden and BCom look almost identical - the Uniden supports a Type II card though (I don't know who's making the unit).  The Trogon and the Everex are identical - Everex, a member of the FIC Group and Trogon are purchasing the units from the FIC Group.

The Leo Freestyle unit is similar to the Everex Freestyle.  They are part of the same conglomerate called FIC Group.
