which smartphone for exbal

I'm up for a new phone and want to upgrate to a phone I can put exbal on.
What phone do you use and how well does it work on it.

Not real interested in palmpilots. I only want to carry one gadget.


thanks in advance

Nate

Nate,

Exbal works perfectly on my ut startac, but think there are probably better options. I think exbal will work on anything that uses windows mobile. I found out I cant carry my camera phone on white sands missle range. So I decided to go double duty and do away with my gps. I bought a PDA with gps to run exbal.

Hi Nate,

I have exbal, on windows and os palm.
Exbal will work fine on both, but be aware, the palm on windows come with lots of problems.
Battery life shorter 2-3 days shorter then a os palm, windows feezing. (W6).

Just wanted to say thanks for all the input I got. I ended up getting a smart-phone XV6700. Exbal for the pocket p.c functions flawlessly on this phone. I am very impressed as this is my first dealings with a portable ballistic program. Exbal is definitely an awesome software.
Thanks again,
308nate

The more I use exbal the more I wonder how people did this with just drop charts I got busy and forgot to send payment for the brakes we talked about. End of last week was wild and it carried over. I appolagize glad I saw this post as it reminded me. It will go out tomorrow.

308 Nate, is that a Verizon phone? I'm in the same boat you are (were), but i have AT&T. Anyone know of a phone they offer that runs exbal well? Like the Tilt?

Mine is a verizon, but I believe at&t sells a similar phone. Do a search on ebay . To my understanding It needs to be a pocket PC with either windows 5.0 or 6.0 phone and it needs to have a screen res.of 240 x 320. Not sure if this matters, but may need a screen size of 2.8" blackberry won't work.
