The wifes P3600 arrived this morning. But they sent the wrong colour. She ordered white & got the black one. Anyways I been playing with it all morning & here's my 1st impressions.
Looks nice & shiny
Excellent loud clear external speaker
Nice & responsive
Phone reception & general operation is fine
3G works well
Shiny surface = fingerprint magnet
MS bluetooth stack, better than before but still lacking
A2DP implementation. No real stereo only mono out from each channel
Also when disconnectd from WMP it doesn't auto reconnect.
In summary if you used previous HTC devices before then you'll be familiar with this one. When used as a pda & phone it does most things as expected, the menus & general operation are same as before.
But its going back, one of the main reasons being the crap A2DP. Wifey uses music player a lot on her 1 hour daily commute & the fact that sound quality is rubbish (low volume & no stereo) & no option to connect a wired headphones as theres no headphone jack. The same problem as the Hermes in that once disconnected from WMP it doesn't auto reconnect. Have to go into Bluetooth manger to re establish the connection.
Also comparing it to my Asus P525 other than the smaller size, 3G, louder external speaker & looks a bit nicer, in all other depts the Asus is as good & some areas much much better.
