New cell phone offers speedy online connection

Joins Blackberry, Treo as useful mobile technology for agents

Though Sprint’s new mobile broadband phone wasn’t made specifically for real estate agents, the new tech toy’s ability to access the multiple listing service, take and send photos, give directions and create documents on a keyboard lends itself nicely to their needs.

“Agents can receive and respond to prospect e-mails when waiting to show a house,” Sprint’s Roger Gaunt said of the PPC 6700 cell phone.
