The anticipation for a Windows phone loaded with a snapdragon processor built into a fever pitch especially after it was released by HTC to consumers in Europe. Naturally it was a priority on my ‘to-do’ list when it was finally released on T-mobile just around a month ago. After spending some quality time with the device I’ve found myself disappointed once again.
The lightning fast processor allows you to navigate thru the screens in the windows mobile 6.5 HTC sense UI without a problem. However after spending most of my time roaming on T-mobile’s EDGE network I have found the internet surfing to be a frustrating waste of time unless I’m in a Wi-Fi hotspot. All of that despite T-mobile’s claim that I live and work in areas that have good coverage. Still, there are a lot of great features to this new phone; Google maps and Gtalk, enhanced calendar functions, 5 megapixel camera w/flash, the new “swipe” keyboard, and old favorites such as “windows my phone” and office mobile.
I got my hands on the iPad and managed to create a video review (in HD, of course) of Apple’s latest device! Check out some of the slick features of the iPad and why it’s a must buy, in my opinion.
The T-Mobile HD2 is out and I decide to take it for a test spin. Check out the Guru Inspection and see if this is worth picking up!
