  1. Modaco is so dead, no one has even noticed the reply before mine is spam... Shame really....
  2. To be honest, I too have defected (to the Apple camp). Can you blame Paul? I loved windows mobile, but the second I Jailbroke my iPhone I was amazed at the things I could do! Exchange support is brilliant, for years I kept telling myself windows mobile is the only phone that can do exchange properly! The phone just works and everything is logical. I'd love to try an Android phone and I assume Paul propably re-discovered the fun of hacking/cooking/modding phones and making applications that belong in 2010! Read his twitter feed, he talks alot about android and you can tell that he's really into it. It's very hard to be excited about windows mobile these days.
  3. Again, like me quite a few WM devices and now seriously considering the iPhone. Does it? Compared to winmo, whats the GPS like? Whats OTA activesync/exchange like? Do you miss the homescreen? Is there any feature of WM that you actually miss?
  4. 1) The ability to customise every part of the phone, ROMS, GPS, activesync and exchange support, the ability to connect to a VPN connection and to join a windows domain. 2) Above + RDP client. 3) Honestly? Nothing anymore. These last couple of weeks I've asked myself the same three questions you've been asking. More specifically, do I upgrade to the HD2 or do I ditch windows and get the iPhone? After much reading and playing around with a lot of iphones I've noticed that the iPhone pretty much does what winmo does now. Plus it has an amazing screen and a great app store! The only thing that was holding me back was, the lack of GPS, the lack of native exchange support, the lack of being able to connect to a VPN network and CamerAware! Turns out the iPhone does all of this now and more! There is (unfortunately) a program that is very similar to CamerAware, (Paul if your reading this, please port it to the iPhone!) For the last couple of weeks I've been using an old nokia of mine for roaming purposes and I forgot what it was like to have a phone that just works, no crashing, no freezing, no soft-resets, no fidling around with CAB files, the list goes on... I dunno, I think WinMo is stuck. It hasn't changed in the last 5years. Gonna call vodafone and get me an iPhone...
  5. Slightly off topic... Are there plans/rumours of a similar device to the HD2 but with a touch keyboard?
  6. What is the GPS like? Is it erratic like on the Vario 3? Where sometimes it gets a signal straight away and some times not at all? Do TomTom, Co-Pilot and CamerAware run well on the HD2? What is sound quality like when using the 3.5mm jack?
  7. Your not alone and I doubt we're the only ones who feel this way. I am seriously considering getting an iPhone or the Touch Pro 2, if the iPhone had a keyboard there would be no debate. Too true, my friend showed me his jailbroken iPhone, some incredible stuff.
  8. I think traditionally WM phones were always used by the more technologically gifted. Think about it, what mobile OS truly had, GPS, office mobile, proper exchange/outlook synchronisation and installable applications before WM? No one wanted GPS and maps on their phone? No wanted to read their e-mails on the go or read PDF's on the tube apart from business users and IT people. Blackberry has been around since the 80's, they were one of the first to get you your emails on your phone, but no one wanted a BB back then, they were too complicated, too costly and they were only good for the business users Enter BBM. BBM helped kick off the BB and now everysinge teenager, yuppie and businessman's got one. Oh and it does push e-mail without having to spend a fortune on CALS and new devices - if your a company. To this day I could'nt give my mother my Kaiser and just expect her to know how to use it, she did however go and buy an iPhone 6months ago and now knows it inside out and never called me to help her out and she is not the most technologically gifted person in the world, but the iPhone is shiny, it has her music on it, she can browse the internet, she installed wikipedia from the app store and she got it connected to her hotmail! She's never reset it, its never frozen, its never crashed, its easy, and..... it works. Seriously, Pocket PC 3.1 and WM6 look the same, they act the same, they both freeze, they all need soft resets, they all need to be hard-reset every 6months, they are laggy, they all need a stylus, you cant just send a text message without some sort of keyboard lag, bla bla bla bla bla.... Also, Apple makes just the iPhone, nothing else, they put all their effort into a perfect union between hardware and software and concentrate on one phone at a time. BlackBerry, make what, 3-4 phones a year? All running the same OS and all with the same purpose and same quality, yet RIM puts all its effort into just those 3 or 4 phones a year. Nokia is kind of the same. They have a very good, very stable OS, they just marry the hardware to their software and makes sure it works. My 3310 and my 6210 still switch on and still work perfectly with 2-3 days of battery after nearly 6years. Microsoft just make an OS, they never see any hardware and they don't seem to be making any radical changes to their OS or concentrating on it very much. Realistically, WM has not changed in forever. Nothing is new. All they seem to do is add stuff on as they go and hope that the phone manufacturers and carriers will take care of the rest. Where would WM be without HTC? Finally in terms of price, WM is expensive. Not just owning one, but probably building a WM device too. Phones are supposed to work and update with the times. WM was once the front-runner when there was no alternative and it seems that everyone's caught up.
  9. Simon, my upgrade is due now and I feel exactly the same way you do. The only thing that held me back was, like you, TomTom, RDP and Exchange. Now that Google sync is functioning correctly and the 3GS has GPS, I'm not quite sure whats keeping me back? 4years of WM phones? 4years of waiting for a decent browsing experience, 4years of waiting for a phone that "just works". I don't know what to do, for the last week or so I've been debating between the Touch Pro 2 or an iPhone... Hell, I even played around with BlacBerry Messenger the other day and I must admit BBM is pretty damn good (the rest of the BB was crap though). There is a reason half the worlds got a BB or an iPhone and not WM.
  10. Is there any talk/rumour/news of a version of the Leo with a hard keyboard? I don't know what to get. My renewal is up and I don't know if I should get the Touch Pro 2, the Leo or the Xperia 2! :) Or wait and see if Leo+keyboard comes out!
  11. I've been on the fence for sometime regarding the TP2. My contract is up for renewal and if reading this thread is anything to go by the TP2 is going to outshine my faithful Kaiser. Still on the fence though. Why? How long till the "TP3" comes out? The Leo is now out, how long do you guys think till a 1ghz touch and type phone from HTC will take to be announced? Should I just get the TP2?
  12. Does this new version of outlook finally bring IMAP IDLE to our phones?
  13. Wow! What? You got an unbranded Touch Pro 2, SIM unlocked and using the original HTC ROM on Vodafone!?!?!?! 0o
  14. Let us know if you do and how!
