Gotta love people comparing products that don't really relate. Let's get some real world reviews before actually shooting the product down with the usual MS + Security lines..... Did any of the other windows mobiles fall to a "1-900" scam? I'm not aware of any.
The first round of hardware is somewhat uninspiring to me, but then so sadly was the iPhone 4. I expected more from the 4th gen phone in terms of the camera option, same as with these devices. Granted one offers a 8mp camera with xenon flash, awesome just what i'm looking for. Oh wait, only 8gb storage with no expansion option? Sigh.
For all it's faults my N97 has been a great all roounder with good image quality and bags of storage thanks to the 32gb card slotted into it giving me a replacmeent iPod, decent on the go camera with a flash that works in the dark for the most part. There's little in the current wave of phone's that really enhances this middle ground "all in one" device. Looks like it's probably the N8 for me, which hopefully will have somewhat more stable software with the new symbian OS arriving on it.
Whilst I can appreciate the merit of tools like this and the simplicity of using them is fantastic, the fact that they can and do bypass any firewall irk's me.
What if an organisation doesn't want people able to share their company desktop with Joe Bloggs on the internet. Granted some products now give you an ability to filter for these types of technologies but sometimes the ease of use of a product can have a large price i erms of security. These products do make it hellishly easy for a small amount of social engineering to give someone full access to a desktop inside an organisation directly through their firewalls unhindered.
