Cell phone with internet capabilities

by ajsnmt / August 26, 2007 10:15 AM PDT

On 8-21-07 on ABC News TechByte segment CNET presented a cell phone that had internet capabilities. It said it sold for $180. I missed out on the brand name. Where can I read a review on this phone? I am unable to locate it on your website or on I have an exchange student from Brazil and he is wanting to purchase this type of phone. Any suggestions or recommendations?

Virtually every modern cell phone sold today can access the internet. Are you needing to connect it to a computer like a wireless modem or use it independant from a computer? Some smartphones operate on Windows mobile (a phone based version of the program on many computers today). Which carrier/technology will you be using, CDMA or GSM?

all cell phones these days have the ability to connect to some form of the internet. whether its a mobile version of google or a media content download, all cell phones have access. newer smartphones like the iphone, blackberry, treo and so on can connect to real websites. what do you want the internet for?

Good morn everyone. I just registered so I guess I will need tags, shots or a secret handshake...I have been lurking for about two months, learning how to do all kinds of fun and time consuming things with my cellphone. I finally decided to throw myself upon the mercy of the established so I can ask a question or two..I may even be able to provide an answer or two; three may be too much....

I think the cell phone you talk about may be Nokia N70!

The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue

The Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
