Just a heads up for anyone looking to buy a QTek 8500.. I have just received mine from www.expansys.com and I am pretty pleased with it seeing as it only costs £69.95 now thats a BARGAIN.

They have them in the 'stock clearance' section...

So tempting and they have the Samsung i320 at £119 can't justify the spend atm though.

Mine arrived on Saturday from expansys...delivery was excellent as I only ordered friday @ 3.00pm

By Saturday afternoon it was running WM6 with the help from the guys at xda-developers.

Back to smartphones after my short stint away with the blackberry!!!

hmm, im still running wm5... not really sure about moving to wm6 seeing as i have destinator 6 running smoothly on it, as is pocket msn and msn messenger. wm5 seems pretty stable and i think is good enough for me.... you know the old saying.. if it aint broke , dont fix it... :)

im glad my post pointed you in the direction of this great bargain

Oh, I'm so tempted by this, it'd be a nice small alternative to carrying my PPC around. Though I might try flashing wm6 onto my SPVC500 (which I still really like) first.

Quite excited now it's been shipped. I only bought it whilst I sit my Orange contract out... The M3100 is good but it's BIG especially as I'm not commuting and using the keyboard for emails etc.

So on a scale of 1 to 10 how hard will it be to put WM6 on it without bricking it? (the phone and myself that is!)

I've had a look at the link Paul posted and I suppose it seems fairly straight forward, but had to ask to gauge opinion... I had read (and it was late last night) that GPRS wasn't working on one of the ROMS?

More research necessary I suppose :)

I bought one of these at the full price of £250 when they were new - I still have it and prefer it on occasion to my HTC Touch. At this price, you can't go wrong!

I wonder how big the discount for 5 or more is - perhaps a small group buy might be in order?

I had a spare minute so I just called 'em to find out and was told they're selling them at a loss anyway so no discount. It was worth a call though to find out.

I've now just got to stop myself from hitting that 'Add to Basket' button.

Quick answer: There's some minor tweaks to the OS but the major benefits relate to interaction with servers.

They've got 800 of the pink ones... for £10 less!

I think I'd rather spend the extra tenner! :)

Wish you hadn't found this unclelimey. I've just ordered a pink one - I really shouldn't but at this price it's a bargain!

Too hard to resist :)
