Have you ever tried to type out an long email with an on screen keyboard? Or try and edit a spread sheet with an on screen keyboard. This phone is designed for business people and 90% of business people want a hardware keyboard.
Just letting you guys know i have the T-Mobile HTC Touch Pro 2 and i uninstalled the ROM that it came with it and installed the European version ROM and the Touch Flo 3D seems to run more smoothly. Also I'm glad i was able to get the Black Theme not the Blue one that comes with the T-Mobile ROM also i just realized that i can now Conference Call with 5 people instead of the 3 that T-Mobile restricted it to.
The review did not mention that are at least 3 major on-line retail stores that sell software compatible with the TP2 and WM 6.1.
They are www.mobihand.com, www.handango.com, and www.smartphone.net and they have thousands of applications available for purchase.
It is disappointing that Microsoft has chosen to go down the path of forcing developers to pay them to provide a retail source of the developer's applications. It will be interesting to see what additional benefits Microsoft's Marketplace for Windows Mobile will offer developers to justify the fee for posting software on the site.
Since there is no fee at the above sites, why would one choose to post on MS's site?
Is there a lot less blur when snapping pictures of moving objects?
The first gen' iPhone does a much better job than my Touch Pro when it comes to getting something in focus when taking pictures of moving objects. I'm not sure if it's just a shutter speed thing (I haven't tried burst or sports mode on my TP) or if it has to do with the camera's focus.
I am thinking of getting one but the only thing holding me back is for one the lack of Flash which after having one on my TP makes it almost a necessity. And secondly I am hearing rumors of a HTC Leo. I have had HTC (every US GSM version) and Iphones. But for IT work and other business related a keypad and windows is a must. I will probably pick this phone up but if you are technically into smartphones (pocekt PC's) you expect size.
