I got a iPAQ 614c sice last week. After 1 week, I can tell you : this baby ROCKS ....
Screen : Sharp, clear, exellent playback with TCPMP
Sound : soft, speaker is located on the back
GSM : as good as it gets ; speakerphone rather quiet ; BT headset (Jabra BT500) amplifies VERY good ( on the edge of causing ear-damage)
GPS : first fix took some time, tested with VisualGPSce, Navio, TomTom 6 : rocksolid always 8-9 satelites in view and in use
Camera : sucks (see attachment) ; funny : the 'mirror' on the back for selfportraits is rather good
Smart Wheel : WOW, acts like a touchpad, without taking the place of it.
Keypad : needs real pressing, not for weak fly-overs
WM 6 : needs tweaking
Hope this helps,
Hi Dirk..congrats with your new "toy"
Could you try the following (I think there might be a couple of bugs in the FW so I need to have a second opinion)
CALENDER: in month view: when using the wheel up down or left and right (or maybe scroll) does your unit scroll by the weeks or by the days. Mine scroll only by weeks, which seems not to be correct (if i compare to a smart phone standard)
CONTACTS: Select a contact with multiple numbers (don't select the contact, just stay in the contacts list view with the contact highlighted). to the left on the screen you will see the H or M or TXT (whatever is selected as default contact method) which has been selected. Now try to select a different contact method for that contact by dragging your finger to the left or right on the wheel (don't scroll). How does the phone behave? on mine the H or M or TXT just keeps scrolling and scrolling and there is no way to stop it unless i exit the screen. This must clearly be a bug. On the WinMo standard it works OK.
OK button: In the manual is says that the wheel can be disabled by pressing the OK button for a period of time. This does not work on my unit. How about yours?
I already tried to do both a hard reset and soft reset but it did not solve the above problems.
If you see that same problems, maybe we should contact HP and ask a bout any solution or similar (updates etc)
