Anyway, for the meantime I will continue blogging and surfing the web on my E61 using Opera Mini which is to date the best internet browser for any mobile device.
To be honest, I am greatly disappointed with the experience I had generally with the HTC Advantage. Previously, I thought highly of the Windows Mobile operating system and I was anxious to get my hands on any device that runs the OS. Now that I had hands on experience with the OS, I can honestly tell you that I am planning not to touch any other Windows Mobile device until Microsoft totally revamps it.
The OS is slow (despite the fact that my HTC has a 629 Mhz processor), choppy, not user friendly, dull, the menu options and locations is not consistent in all its modules, the built in on-screen keyboard is not finger friendly, and the list keeps going on and on. I mean the OS has been around for ages now yet no attention was given to the interface.
As I said before in a previous post, I have a feeling that Microsoft is working on the successor of Windows Mobile 6. But even if that was true the release date could be years from now. Not sooner than 2009.
As for the time being, I will stick to my beloved Nokia E61.
I guess I will be spending Sunday in bed while stuffing my system with antibiotics and pain killers. Although I had a good fair amount of sleep last night, I still woke up not feeling well. My head feels like it’s going to explode any minute now, I have a painful stiff neck, and aching bones all over my body.
I just hope it doesn’t continue till tomorrow morning as well or I will be definitely calling in sick, which I really hate doing.
So basically all I have been doing today is lying in bed, trying to keep myself warm, and drinking gallons of fluid. Not to mention the amount of drugs I have been swallowing. Oh yeah, as well as trying to get time to flyby quicker by watching movies on my laptop and spending time online.
That’s all I have for tonight.
How do I know this? Well, I don’t.
If Windows Mobile expects to last another year, Microsoft’s Windows Mobile team have to be working on something spectacular behind the scenes, behind the news, behind the blogs, or even in complete secrecy, for god’s sake.
Or at least do it for my sake! I mean recently I bought a new Windows Mobile device and I was disapointed with the operating system’s interface. I expected a quick and snappy OS to go with my new device. But I was sadly and unfortunately disapointed. I even switched back to using my Nokia E61 for sometime to reduce the agony.
So one of my wishes and hopes for the year 2008 is a significant Windows Mobile update or upgrade.
There. I said it.
