For about half a year now I've gone away from Windows Mobile and have been using Symbian s60. I own a Nokia n82.
For the longest time I've just wanted a phone that has great emulation and great ports of games, and symbian 60 has quite a bit.
Here I'm proud to show Quake 3 running on my Nokia N82, hope you guys enjoy!
Well, besides my motorola phones and proprietary phone OS's, Windows Mobile was my first BIG OS I've ever used. It started years back when I got a t-mobile sda smartphone. Then I upgraded to an AT&T Tilt (Kaiser). But after the Kaiser's lack of drivers, it made me switch to Nokia Symbian 60v3. I currently use a nokia n82. I also bought an Apple iPod touch. Some of you may remember my hate for apple, but I've jailbroken it and use it fun (lol). I can do multitasking, backgrounding, file browsing, all the things a normal iPod/iPhone wouldn't let you do. Hackers make iPod/iPhone's great, but apple restricts us from this.
anyway back on topic.. I've switched to S60v3 (symbian) because right now it's faster than windows mobile on a crappy qualcomm CPU. Nokia's hardware is far superior to the windows mobile phones currently out with now. I'm just sticking with what is best until Windows Mobile (HTC phones) catch back up again.
I always will love windows mobile tho. There are so many developers, and it's always fun to flash custom roms. Symbian can't even come close to the amount of developers. iPod/iPhone just has lots of apps, they're just fun to install and play around with, but none of it's as serious as Windows Mobile.
Here's what sums it all up.. if speed wasn't an issue (let's imagine all OS's ran at the speed of the iphone), I'd much prefer windows mobile, there are so many more features.
I'm simply just taking a break from Windows Mobile right now, thats all.
1) The question is why? Why do you stick with Windows Mobile?
The great forums related to it.. xda-developers, modaco.
So many hackers/developers making great apps.
2) What feature(s) make you stick with Windows Mobile?
3) What deters you from other Mobile OS devices?
I'm more familiar with every part of Windows Mobile than any other OS.
I've noticed, the thing about landscape is you need to play around with the resolutions. For example, on my Tilt it would crash on landscape. Bear in mind my Tilt's landscape resolution is 320x240. I found I was actually able to run it at 319x240 and it run perfect. Odd, yes?
So when playing with the config file try playing around with the numbers, subtract 1 pixel from your device's actual resolution and see if it fixes the problem.
It's because as of right now there is no device that can smoothely run windows mobile, it takes up way too much CPU power, so it leaves almost nothing for gaming. Also, qualcomm processors aren't making it any better...
This is why I'm switching to symbian 60 for now. Nokia N82 and N95 can play SNES and GBA at full framerate with sound. Not to mention, it can play quake 3 at about 25fps, with the accelerometer if you wish. Of course it plays quake 1 and 2 as well.
actually, some pocket pc apps have been posted here in the smartphone games section. We've just always treated it as a "windows mobile games" section, being that there is no "pocket pc games" section. ;)
I haven't been on Palringo in more than a year. Today I signed in again to find the number of people online had considerably gone up. Before it used to be under 10 people online.
now... I can't even count that high :D
Well, I hope I win, lol..
I'm assuming this could be unlocked for AT&T?
2. Will they be making more Right handed devices? (Keyboard slides out right, that way you can use the stylus with right hand and D-pad with left)
3. When will they move on from qualcomm and start using a faster processor, TI Omap 200mhz and Xscale (of different speeds) are faster than qualcomm. These Qualcomm processors are equivalent to most of HTC's 2003 devices!
