I see that some of you already got the device. My wife wants to replace her Nokia N80 for the white version. Now I previously had an Orange SPV M3100 (HTC Hermes) & had no end of problems with that sold it & now happily using an Asus P525. So how about the the Trinity.
-Is it stable?
-Does A2DP & AVCRP work properly as in having proper stereo output?
-Does the A2DP reconnect automatically to WMP after receiving a call (the -Hermes never did, had to restart everything).
-How's wifi reception (the Hermes was crap). She uses wifi a lot as we have 250mins free BTOpenzone minutes a month.
-I looked at the HTC website but it seems they do not supply firmware upgrade support for their devices. So where can you get them officially?
Even though I had a bad experience with the Hermes I haven't lost all faith in HTC products yet. Fill me in guys. Thanks
I have found it to be very stable - granted I buggered about for the first couple of hours and then hard reset it to make sure that it was "default".
I don't use it as a music player although I am giving some thought to getting a pair of headphones - I use Mac's so I am tied in to iTunes and hence use iPods...
Wifi seems to be pretty good - comparing the results of iStumbler and WiFiFoFum its not picking up all of the AP's that I can see but enough to make a good hash of it.
Firmware updates - I tend to use XDA Developers and their wiki to source new firmware. At the moment there are no new bits out there for the Trinity yet. I still hope that the GPS will get switched on at some point (yes - I believe the rumours...)
As a phone it works fine, DirectPush to exchange works well and 3g is sooo much faster and with Web and Walk I don't mind hammering it. Voice quality is better than I expected but it is a bit too early to guage battery life.
