iPhone

9 January 2007

So the phone with the virtual keypad is finally properly here, even if it took Apple to make it. I’ve long said that this kind of interface is the way to go, afterall, most of the time you don’t need a keyboard, so why have one? These phones with the sliding keypad that HTC is banging out at an alarming rate won’t catch on because they’re too thick!

I’ve stated my position on Apple before and I stand by it. Now, when someone makes a clone of this phone, and they will, if they could stick Windows Mobile on it that’d be great. Thanks.

    No, you are factually incorrect – Windows Mobile wouldn’t be great, it would be f**king awful. And that’a a fact, that is.

    Well, yes and no. It’s near the top of the crop when it comes to PC connectivity. Phone companion software on PCs is in general awful, Windows Mobile included. The latest Sony Ericsson suite is quite good but could still use some work.
    The amount of information we can and do store on phones these days makes good synchronisation a must. Given the number of years the manufacturers have had to get it right there really is no excuse.
