Guest Sideburnt Posted September 25, 2007 Report Share Posted September 25, 2007 Please don't take this personally, because it is isn't intended to be... This post typifies the problem with Orange. Here we have a someone who is clearly an Orange employee, he is in the 5-10% or so of orange employees who actually know what a pocket pc is (the vast majority clearly dont have a clue about these devices), he claims to have an orange branded kaiser so is clearly involved in some way with its testing ect... YET he clearly doesnt have a bloody clue what the corporate plan is with this phone. Where is the direction with Orange?. A senior executive from O makes an official press release about one of the most important phone releases this year (probably second only to the iphone), yet someone clearly involved with this device on the ground is still talking about whether it is released !?!! Again, not a personal flame, but just typifies the misinformation and confusion at orange... which presumably stems from the top. Orange - sort out your affairs. summed it up nicely, its not that the release day is delayed for me, its all about the confusion surrounding a basic piece of information, is it going to be released, and when. Nothing sketchy, nothing assumed, nothing made during a press statement which doesn't stand true, just simple facts, and not speculation. Mobiles are Orange's business, they should be more up to scratch than we are right?, if not I question the companies general enthusiasm and research within the field, they didn't win the iPhone contract, no big deal, they've released a great little touchFlo phone, also commendable, but the iPhone beater is still shrouded in mystery. Not a great way forward to inspire confidence and forward thinking, I dont care that some senior executive got his feathers ruffled up at the prospect of releasing a damn fine device but to not back it up with corrections and updates is unprofessional. Do they really think that most people dont follow any kind of news on the internet, you just arn't going to persuade Johnny Councilflat and his wife to buy a Tytn II, its surplus to needs. But the large volume of high end, business and specialist sectors PPC users are going to be 99% of the time looking for news on the Internet, thats just human nature, and all we find are conflicting reports and a customer helpline that doesnt recognise its arse end from its elbow, thats going to turn these people off from Orange right there. And Im one of them. sorry for not being one of the cattle Orange seem to cater to, Im looking for a provider with a little vision and clarity. ...im on my man-period okay...
