How about full-disclosure?

by tuolumne    May 6, 2009, 1:26 AM

Your first review of this device wasn't much more than a complete trainwreck.

You complained about how terrible the touch display was, yet none of you were ever willing to admit that you were in fact using a pre-production device and never calibrated the display? As such, your findings were laughable at best, delusional at worst. There was zero reasoning given why your findings were completely disjoint from virtually ALL OTHER reviews at the time.

And here we are, almost a year later, and you are still peddling the same nonsense about the first Instinct having a "poor touchscreen". It shouldn't really come as a suprise, you also promised you'd retest a Glyde after it came out to see if you had a bad unit - never did.

So how about fully-disclosing that in fact, your original review of the Instinct's "touchscreen" wasn't relevant? Are you read to admit it now or will there be no reply this time?

The truth is, the original Instinct had a capacitive touchscreen that was vastly superior anything the competition sans Apple had at the time. Phones like the LG VU and Voyager were poor in comparison, reqwuiring mashing the display to get responses. And the original Glyde, with it's resistive display was a disaster.

Time to own up to reality here.
