"What a mobile platform should be!"4.0 starson by covolor
Pros: All in one device for digital content + cell phone
Cons: No 3G Network---WEAK!
Summary: I’ve used quite a few windows mobile phone. All of those devices promise to do quite a bit, but I find the all in one windows mobile phone just plan suck. They freeze all the time and the response is horrible. So I decided to try the iPhone. Surprisingly I liked it, here’s why:
1. Interface is impressive—touch screen response is amazing.
2. All in one device for my digital content.
3. Camera is decent.
4. Doesn’t freeze every hour for no reason, like all my windows mobile phone do.
5. Surprisingly-no keys—this actually work, thanks to the touch interface.
6. Not to bulky, smaller then my Palm Tero.
7. Battery actually last longer then any windows mobile phone I’ve had.
Now, I’m just waiting to see what kind of applications will be coming out and how they will integrate into the enterprise architecture. Hopefully, we’ll see exchange support, some productivity applications, oh and a must, GAMES.
1. No 3G network, but edge is fine for now.
2. No copy and paste feature, they need to figure something out.
3. No 3rd party applications—soon to be a thing of the past.
4. Would have liked true GPS.
Sure this isn’t a true mobile computer, but it’s the first with the potential to do more then phone calls, calendar, productivity, and games. For example, the iPhone can handle the images doctors need to be able to see x-rays and other diagnostic images, currently windows mobile device and phones either don’t have a good enough display or they have a horrible processor that can’t keep up.
Anyway, I’d say, buy it, if you like digital content and you are sick of carrying an mp3 player, cell phone, and pda!
