Re: I'll nevar forgive @ac Touch Pro 2
really? i had one of those too and didnt have any issues with it. The HTC Artemis was a bit dodgy tho and build quality was not up to par with the other devices, and the touch HD suffered greatly because no one would pay for graphics drivers but i still have that one and use it to run GPS software, mostly because its touch screen is not effected by water unlike all current phones.
Its worth pointing out at this point that MS had almost nothing to do with WM devices. They licenced out a core OS, it was up to the OEMs and networks to shaft i mean customize it as they saw fit. this was hugely benificial to us in some ways because it have us a very open OS and lots of potential updates, the OEMs and more specifically the networks totally screwed WM over tho, filling it with bloat, not updating it, not testing it and generally ignoring it after launch. This was the reason MS has taken such a stand with WP, WM got slated and for the most part it was nothing to do with them.
Take the Touch HD as an example, a more than capable device that neither the networks or OEMs would pay for graphics drivers, meaning whilst it was pretty quick for its time, it sucked big time with anything like, videos, camera, games, graphical programs anything that used the screen in a heavy way.
HTC also started the Sense UI on WM which is used on many android phones, it actually performed amazingly well on the HD2, the HD2 was unfortunately too late to the game to make a difference, had it came out earlier then there is a good chance things would have been different in the OS wars. Bare in mind that the hardware in that thing is essentially the same as many android phones, even today!
