I might just try this
I reckon I should be able to mask the onscreen keyboard on my Touch Pro in just this fashion. Shouldnt take to long either
Doesnt bother the Indians
When I was in India earlier in the year, I saw Sikh soldiers manning armed sentry points at the Airports. They werre wearing turbans and not helmets. Why can they not do the same over here? Or how about wearing a top knot under their helmets cos surely those pointy hats the cops wear have enough space under them??
Doesnt play well with Touch Flo
Bit of a shame that really, otherwise a neat little app
Just Head over to XDA-Devs
Already got the new Touch-Flo on my Touch Pro thanks the the good lads over there :)
But a few comments on the review...
1. If it has the Sliding Panels homescreeen this is not an HTC innovation, this is part of the Windows Mobile Standard edition which I actually miss on my Touch Pro as it is highly configurable (Look for chome configurator on XDADevs) and less of a resource hog than Touch Flo.
2. It is "Microsoft Office" not "Windows Office" (And if you save a blank document you can then open this when you need to make a new document and save as a different filename)
Come on Reg, these are basic facts that I would have thought you would know and I think you should come to me whenever you want a phone reviewed in the future ;-) (If only so I can play with all the new gadgets)
Monthly vs Quarterly
So whats the actual quarterly vs quarterly score then??
When comparing things it is commonplace to compare apples with apples as they say....
Glad I got my Touch Pro
Sounds like I made the right decision when getting the TP. Surely this review should have compared the G1 to the TP as they are functionally similar...
Them same Julie Moult who wrote this article?
what a dumbass!
Paris, cos she knows that racoons are not Nazis!
I cant wait for these to come on sale at IWOOT!! Imagine all the fun you could have with one of these.
Paris because, well, imagine the videos you could record :-p

"almost always weak pathetic affairs "
Eep!!! Not sure tempting Fate and the Ladies is wise.
Surely that should be "Fate" and "The Lady"
Too hot for a coat today...
I got one of these while I was in Australia on holiday as a cheap phone. It is just what one wants from a mobile: text messaging and phone calls! The alarm is pretty cool too as it has a built in talking clock :) Scared the hell out of me when I sat down one day and my pocket told me the time!
@ Edward Rose
Having known a few pirate broadcasters, the music they play is more likely to be white label stuff and music they have produced than the gash that the RIAA/MPAA et al are interested in so no royalty fees need paying. In fact most of the producers are pushing to get their music played to get some airtime!
Hitler really did back the wrong team didnt he... First his Xbox live account got blocked (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYvZnTFpip0) and now they didnt ship the HD drive with the 360!!
Mine is the camo jacket, third from the end, taxi is waiting...
Does anyone know if this SP1 will cripple the pre-activated versions of Vista? (need to know for a friend of a friend)
Reminds me of the old BT phone cards that used to print black dots on a white strip to account for how much had been spent. A bit of tippex on an abandoned card and you could talk for hours :)
O2 and Google maps for mobile
I managed to run up a £200 phone bill with O2 UK about a year ago just after I found Google Maps. I was showing everyone what it was like! I cancelled my contract paid them off and vowed never to go back to O2 ever again. I now use T-Mobile as my personal and Voda for work and havent had such a bad bill since, even after I used my Voda as a modem while I was moving house.
Google Ad Removal
Use an extension called customizegoogle for firefox and get rid of all ads, click tracking etc and you will never have to see a google ad again. Coupled with ABP I forgot that there was even adverts on the net!!
Or maybe even check that their tattoos dont say "steak and chips - £7"!!
@ As a non smoker and asthma sufferer
Amen, you said it good.
I smoke, but not in the presence of children or those who dont want me to. I aint gonna pay to go outside and freeze my fucking arse off, they can shove it up theirs for all I care!
Funniest thing I have heard in a while, hats off to you sir
are you sure he was not employed to draft up the historical report ;-)
@ Befuddled American
We have always used MPH over here in the UK, why on Gods Green Earth would we want to go to the shitty KPH??
So yes, it is 179 MPH :-D
A not so befuddled Brit :-p
T-Mobile MDA Mail
Why have you never mentioned this phone as a decent BBerry replacement? I have used this for a few months now and I find it very useful.
My only gripes with it are more to do with T-Mobile disabling the WiFi and not offering the WM6 upgrade that the USA got a while back, though it is possible to get a version for it once the device is unlocked. Also it is not a 3G phone so suffers on the web browsing.
The battery life is fairly decent, it lasted for the whole of the Download Rock festival, (Thursday - Sunday) including lots of videos and pictures.
