Here's my Shift wishlist! Care to add anything anyone?

- A car charger (12V 3A, any pointers anyone?)
- Full WM on Snapvue in 800x480
- 2GB MicroDIMM at a reasonable cost!
- Have a go at upgrading the 1.8" HDD
- Enable the GPS
- Enable phone calls
- Ship CamerAware for shift :D
- Enabled SDHC support for the internal card reader
- HIGHER CAPACITY (but no bigger) BATTERY!
- Find a coat where it fits in the inside pocket :(

Will add more as I think of things :(

Hi Paul,

One of the key things for me (which I feel is of great importance) is for the synch of Vista to Snapvue for calender tasks and emails. Surely some tech head can come up with a software solution?
I synch my HTC cruise perfectly with the vista side then input calender, tasks and contacts by hand into snap vue just so that I don't have to fire up vista.
Apparently Snapvue synchs though a work network (pointless) so why not via an activesync or mirror software straight from a PDA or from an online service like a pseudo network that allows vista synch to 'bounce back' to SnapVue.

Hi Paul,

You wrote:

"-Enabled SDHC support for the internal card reader"


As far as my Shift is concerned, I can say that the internal card reader does support SDHC (German Retail, amazon.com).
I have an 8gig SDHC Class6 Card. The Device Manager shows the correct size and the transfer rate is +/- 5mb/sec.

Did you get the Version with or without Origami Exp.?
Maybe the guys at HTC decided to upgrade the Hardware a bit :D

Cheers from Germany, Hyrex

I would like a vehicle mount that allows access to the keyboard when needed. There are options out there but they either need me to glue/stick something onto the back of the Shift which would allow for keyboard use but then I have something mounted to the back of the device. I don't like that idea. Otherwise, there is the option of using a "vise" type device that would not allow me to access the keyboard. I will probably go this route if I have to but I do not prefer it.

I talked to ProClip and they were not going to make a holder for this device unless it really takes off. It would cost over $5,000 US to make a device for the Shift and they don't think that there will be enough demand for it at this time. Their office is only a couple miles from mine and I stopped by and talked with them and showed them my device. They took some measurements and weighed it and thought they could definitely do something but it was a matter of ROI.

Any recommendations would be helpful.

word is gps has been unlocked by the shift project, heard it on irc, wifi im not sure about, but i also heard that sd cant even be found by wm in any way theyve tried so far. Also, they think they know how to make calls, but not 100% or actually done it yet.
