bit the bullet and switched to the Hero

Well my upgrade came up and i decided to switch to the Hero and try out android. So far i'm liking it a lot. Not to knock WM, but the UI is polished and everything just WORKS. I still have my touch pro and will probably continue to read the forums and tinker with it, but the Hero is my new toy. The only thing i kinda miss is the hardware keyboard, but i think it will just take getting used to.

Re: bit the bullet and switched to the Hero

Well congrats, my sister got one too. I like the nice fluid interface and the big screen and I'm pretty sure soon we'll see fully customized ROMs for that phone. If WM/HTC doesn't step up their game guess what will be my next phone hehe

Re: bit the bullet and switched to the Hero

i have been watching (not like a hawk) but i have noticed the tp is a die-n device. HTC doesn't even have a link avail anymore for it on sprint. TP2 never hit official sprint stores. I am starting to wonder if HTC is waiting for wm7 to launch before they put out a new device and going andriod in mean time.

Re: bit the bullet and switched to the Hero

well, it feels like HTC is giving mix signals. i know there was the article that just came out about all the code names inside android 2.0.1 for htc. yet, htc has stated they want to stand by winmo, but i don't see anything coming out except the HTC Touch HD2. but the touch hd2 hasn't even hit state side, so you may be right, they might be holding off until winmo 7.0 and using the touch HD2 to hold things down until then. besides, what's the point of developing a bunch of phones for 6.5 when 7.0 is right around the corner?

Re: bit the bullet and switched to the Hero

IDK about "right around the corner" wm7 keeps getting pushed. as of ms from the start, it should have been released already, then word was 1stQ of 2k10. now it looks to be a full year from now. but i agree, why push 6.5 when andriod is making a big hit and wm is short coming. it's hard to sell a divice when "new and (according to developers) improved" platform is out.

WinMo and Android are currently in two different markets really. Android is hot in the consumer space fighting the iPhone and WinMo is warm in the enterprise sector fighting the BlackBerry.

It is hard to do, but you can't confuse the two markets, although there is some overlap.

WinMo 7 is supposed to bring WinMo into the consumer space too, but they haven't been shut out of the enterprise yet.
