I’ve had enough of it, I really have.
I met ANOTHER guy the other day sporting a Windows Mobile handset.
“Do you like it?” I asked.
“Oh, it’s brilliant,” he responded, “I love it!”
“Shit!” I thought, reaching for my SMS Text News business cards, “Maybe I’ve found someone I can actually blog!”
I grabbed the guy, sat him down and explained I ran this site and that I really would like his opinions.
“So,” I began, “Tell me about your device, what do you love about it?”
“Well, it’s just amazing. I really love it,” he starts, “Although I do have to reboot it about 3-4 times a day, especially when it hangs or cashes,”
My face dropped.
F*** it. What do I have to do to find someone who actually uses these devices without trouble?
Seeing my face, he asked if my new Nokia E61i needs a few reboots each day.
I looked at him with a degree of horror.
Er no. No. No it doesn’t. Maybe if you overload it, as I often do, with a ton of things, it might slow… but crash? Rare. Now and again you’ll get an application error, but, you know, we’re talking rare.
I’ve had enough.
I emailed HTC’s PR and asked to be put in touch with whoever does their PR in the United Kingdom. After an abysmal time with that iPAQ over the weekend, I am desperate to:
a) Find some people who LOVE their Windows Mobile devices without immediately telling me how many times they crash.
b) Check out some of the latest HTC handsets and try and redress the balance of reporting here on SMS Text News.
I’ll let you know if I get any response from HTC.
If you can help, by the way, let me know?
