Re: So has the temptation got to you yet?
Well, I started with a PocketPC 1.0 (remember those ?) and have moved up through almost every version from there. I always carried a PDA and cell phone, then moved up to a 6700 to combine them and now a 6800 (I do miss the 4" display from my hx4700).
I will not get a new phone till WM7 phone start coming out, I don't feel there is a reason to change till we get major feature updates in the hardware. Some of the new spec'ed features are what I really want in a phone.
Over the years there has been progress in the version changes, I think the best change so far is in WM 6.5, with finally getting with the program and giving more touch access and not just a stylus.
If 6.5 is a step where we are going then we are going down the right path. I agree with what other people say, system perfomance is going to be huge one as we step down the line. I got a chance to play with the new iPhone for a while and as I was not nuts over the interface, it was really fast, I've never over the years seen a WM device run as fast as it.
If WM7 is scheduled for Spring 2010, then I will be disapointed. You can not re-do a whole OS in 6-8 months, it is sounding like it might be rushed out the door and that would make it a bad thing....
