Initial impressions and thoughts on the Mogul

I've had it since 9:45 this morning and am comparing it to my 6700 running on BigJ's Reload Rom 1.1 and here are my impressions:

Initially the unit definitely feels lighter than my 6700 - buth then of course it would since I was using an extended 2400 mah battery on it

The slide out keyboard with its spring load feels neat and there's a bit of play when it's closed and any light push on the keypad would send the screen into landscape mode.

I miss having a volume slide controller. I still haven't figured out how to quickly set the phone into vibrate mode or increase the volume. I know that during a call, the thumbwheel will adjust the volume, but I would like to set the phone to silence sometimes.

I can't assign the windows and ok buttons to new programs [the ones sitting next to the call and end buttons]

I need to get used to using the thumbwheel to move around - i instinctively move to the D-pad, which is also an adjustment.

The screen is much brighter than the 6700.

The massive amount of storage in the rom is great; although I'm afraid that it won't take me too long to fill that up!

Havent' tried the wifi yet.

Bluetooth: A2DP works as well as AVRCP on WMP and sony HBH970. Incoming calls get routed through without a problem.

So far I've installed SBP Diary, Pocket Plus and Weather - all working fine; MortSaver [best device locking program]; TCMP.

Activesync works as advertised and I had no trouble syncing with my exchange server. POutlook works as it had in the past.

I can't seem to activate the keyboard light when I slid out the keyboard and start typing ... GRRRR

Whew, sorry for long rambling post. Will add more thoughts as i play with it throughout the day.

Yeah, I found out that there's a light sensor on the device and it lights up in a white color.

GPS

Although the user's guide lists GPS support it is for location in ALI. Do you know whether or not applications will be developed to use that chip set for navigation?

My initial impressions and observations...
  • Wow I don't know if I should say this... anyone feel the Mogul feels cheap? I mean, the d-pad, the soft keys... I don't know, I feel my 700wx is more robust, like made of better quality materials.
  • I have not installed any apps yet, but I'm worried about the low amount of Program (RAM) memory available.
  • Activating was very easy and the rep I got was very friendly.
  • Windows Live would not sync my personal settings, so sync'ing always failed. Also, why the heck does it have to sync my Hotmail contacts? I don't want to do that but apparently is required to sign in to Messenger?
  • If you for example go to Settings and scroll down all the way down with the thumbwheel, you will not be able to switch tabs. Instead, the thumbwheel keeps jumping from the bottom icon to the current tab.
  • Screen rotation was very quick as far as I have noticed.
  • Both the Software and Music Store are worthless as they are just links to websites, save yourself a Today plugin and add them to your favorites.

Time to start installing apps... will report later!

two friends of mine that played with another person's 6800 commented on how it didn't feel as robust as the 6700. it is lighter, and from what i gather, the slide doesn't lock in place like 6700.

That's also true, when I click the thumbwheel the keyboard slides out a little.
