  1. Now that I have a Verizon XV6700 (HTC Apache) and have had some time to play with it, I think Windows Mobile is what Microsoft should be focusing the bulk of their efforts on. There is much better value in the smartphone/pda form factor than in something the size of a composition book. If it can’t fit in a pocket, I’d rather have something that is a full featured desktop replacement running Vista.

  2. So true, especially for men, if it’s not pocketable, then it’s going into something the size of a backpack or briefcase. In that case, the weight becomes way more important, and the size can vary up to laptop size. (Of course, there is some correlation between size and weight.) I think this is also true of women, since purses have gotten smaller and smaller, but likely to a lesser degree, since they also carry bags smaller than a backpack/briefcase.

    That’s one thing I think Apple concluded – thus, the size of the iPod. And the focus on weight of the iBook and Powerbook/MacBook Pro.

  3. Om,

    I don’t really think it’s fair to say that because these senior execs are terrible presenters, that the platform is hexed. I would be dollars to donuts that these guys have less than 15 minutes with the device in question. They probably got off the jet, and were briefed in the Town Car on the way over. This is hardly sufficient proof to damn the device, don’t you think?

    Perhaps you’re spoiled by the benchmark of Steve Jobs’ mind-bending, minutely rehearsed presos? Perhaps we all are.

  4. You’d want some company to sit on some technology for 10 more years so that you can get 6 hours of battery life?

    I might not buy this because of the short battery life, but I commend them for trying.

  5. Forget about a CEO making a SNAFU in public. Do you EVER expect anyone BUT StevieJ to have a public demo without a hitch ?

    The real story here folks is that not that more public light has shined on Ori-What?-mi, the real utility ( or lack thereof ) of these devices can be seen more for what it really is.

    These are no different than what H/PC’s where about 10 years ago. Simply an addendum to your PC. Move along folks, nothing to see here..move along.
