    I'll be in the market for a new cell phone in the next few months. I'm really looking for a good business phone with Bluetooth. I really don't care about a camera. What I would really like as well though, is a wifi enabled phone. I'm aware that Palm's Treo will do this along with some other "smart phones" but I'm not really in the market for a "big" smart phone. Anybody know of any cell phones (GSM/UMTS) that'll do Wifi?

    Thanks

    Actually, neither the Treo 650 nor the Treo 700w have WiFi. I just picked up a Treo 650 and it is actually smaller than I thought it would be. You should check out a smart phone that has WiFi because it might be a little smaller than you think cause I know it was for me.

    Wow those Nokia E-series phones look pretty decent! Thanks for the tip!

    I just use my Vodafone 3G Data Card for when I'm on the move.

    I get 400kbps in my pocket, how good is that :D

    UMTS is pretty decent yeah, but I'm not that enthusiastic about the steep prices here in Holland for now. With Wifi connectivity I can get free access almost anywhere!

    IMO O2 Atom is the best one out there. It`s got all the features you can have and still it`s the smallest PocketPC phone. Also you can have O2 miniS if you want it to have a full QWERTY keyboard.

    Ok. Iknow you said you dont want a big smartphone but these two are really small. Especially the Atom. And in any case I dont think web surfing on any other phone without windows mobile OS will be any good. What`s the point in having higher speed net access wen you phone wont really display most of the web sites. Anyways, thats just my 2cents.;)
