hello.
I've had mine a day and love it so far. there are two things of note:- My wife thinks I play with it too much ! and the OK button can stick in if you dont press it cleanly.

only annoyance so far - I can't get my Mac to connect to the internet via the Tytn II - can't find a script that seems to work. Never had any problems with my K800i or MDA pro.

Bluetooth PAN should work, but doesn't seem to!

I assume you applied my tweak pack to get BT DUN on the device?

Whats up with the bootup time of the TyTN II? When I power my device on it goes .. "smart mobility" (what the heck is that?) .. then it lists the firmware revisions.. then it displays an animated HTC logo.. then it displays windows mobile logo.. then it finally goes to the today screen.

I don't know if its _much_ longer than my Dell Axim X5 to boot up.. but shouldnt it be quicker all around? ... maybe the idea is to never turn the thing off? :-)

O_o
That doesn't happen every time you turn it on, right??

Yes, that happens every time you turn it on, it's no slower than the Hermes was though. And why would you ever *want* to turn it off anyway!?

My annoyance - although I haven't noticed anyone else complaining yet - is that the screen is blinkin' hard to see in direct sunlight. The Hermes was definitely more usable in bright conditions. Fortunately for me I live in London, so bright sunlight isn't usually an issue...

Yeah same here, the bootup is very long. But don't understand why to switch off. I'm using the phone because everybody can be in contact with me in the 24h if they want. At bed time the phone is charging... i think a cradle'll be a good accessorie if there would be. ;)

I think a ROM update will be done a shorter boot time, but imho that's not that annoying.

Not working Java, but I'm going to investigate futher.

I've also noticed today a 'buzzing' sound coming out of the internal speaker while in-call volume is set high - seems like speaker is a bit loose and sound vibration causes that 'buzz'. VERY annoying, but stopped occurring after quick treat of air duster. But I consider getting warranty replacement if problem will start happening again. This is not the thing I would expect from nearly-500-quid device... :(

Hi Guys,

Has anyone experienced video playback problems on the HTC Kaiser? I seem to get alot of lag when playing videos trnasfered from my N95 to the Kaiser on Windows media player. They are like one second gaps making the video very jittery.

Is this a hardware problem or software? Any advice will help.

Thanks

Is there a cradle accessory for this thing? I use mine all the time for my PocketPC.

Scrub my problem with Macbook using the Tytn II as a modem - found the program 'internet sharing' (cunningly hidden in the Programs folder) which sets up the bluetooth PAN mentioned before. Immediate internet access from Macbook ensued.

Right, there is one more - camera bug that makes each picture rotated 90 degrees clockwise by default. Extremely annoying.

Yes, However you can enable it with this registry tweak,

From MoDaCo wiki:

To enable ClearType in Landscape mode:

[codebox] HKLM\System\GDI\ClearTypeSettings\OffOnRotation = 0 (DWORD decimal)
[/codebox]

To disable:

[codebox] HKLM\System\GDI\ClearTypeSettings\OffOnRotation = 1 (DWORD decimal)[/codebox]

Note that your PocketPC screen's LCD red/green/blue ordering required for proper ClearType display is only correct for Portrait display. You may or may not prefer to leave ClearType in Landscape mode disabled

Ok, problems I have noticed. When you soft reset, sometimes the backlight does not go off, you need to manually put the phone into sleep mode.

Trying to select GSM only rather the 3G can sometimes cause the phone not to find a signal (same in reverse). Soft reset needed.

Not a problem but a minor annoyance is the fact I keep trying to slide out the keyboard the wrong way (Hermes way). Its only a matter of time for my small brain to learn that new trick!

on a positive, I am finding the battery is lasting a whole day in 3G with push email on!!! My old hermes could never do that. I should expect that to get better in the next week or so as the battery only reaches full capacity after a week or so.

A few observations:

1) I find it quite annoying that every time you turn it on, it goes back to the today screen, even though I have the Today timeout disabled (in Settings/Today/Items). I want to see the application I was using when it turned off/I turned it off. Anybody have an idea how to do that?

2) Another thing is the black HTC Theme. It is great, but in apps still using the old style WM 2003 menu bar at the bottom, it looks odd because it changes the color of the bar from grey to black.

3) And the stylus is on the wrong end.

4) The start menu hangs after phone calls when a device password is enabled. Turning the unit off and on fixes this though.

Overall, great device. How could I ever live without the memory??
