Touch Pro 2 – Been and gone on Orange?

You may remember I banged on for months about wanting a Touch Pro and Orange couldn’t decide if they were going to get it… Eventually I opted for getting one from Vodafone (SIM free through a colleague). It’s a great phone, but has a few quirks and I’ve been hanging out for the HTC Touch Pro 2. Yep, I’m still resisting the iPhone (much as I use my iPod Touch for loads of things now!) as I have the usual concerns: Will I have listened to music all day and not have enough juice to make a call or check my email. Can’t put a spare battery in it. Plus it does mean leaving Orange after almost 15 years as… Continue reading »

HTC Touch Pro (or No!) on Orange

I think I’ve found the perfect phone from me, The HTC Touch Pro (which I talked about a while back) looks like it does everything I want or need! Take a look at it here: HTC Touch Pro But I have a minor problem, Orange aren’t being forthcoming in offering it 🙁 Whilst on it’s own this isn’t unusual, they are generally last to market with new handsets after they’ve Orange Simplified (read “rebranded and Orange Software’d”) it, the mixed messages that I’m getting from Orange ARE unusual. On a recent shopping trip I popped into the Orange Shop at Cabot Circus, and whilst my wife was looking at handsets I asked once of the loitering assistants if there was… Continue reading »

HTC Touch Pro – Boring Video!

This quite seriously may be the most boring video you’ve ever watched on Youtube…. buy Hounddog But it has probably just convinced me, exactly why I want a HTC Touch Pro over the iPhone! This video was a texting challenge, set by osmio between the two handsets. Don’t get me wrong I still love my SPV M700/Trinity, I just fancy a change! Only last week I was inches away from upgrading to the HTC Diamond whilst on the phone to Orange. It’s not that my phone doesn’t do almost everything I want it to – I just fancied a new toy with a bit of speed! The HTC Diamond looked perfect barring it’s lack of memory card, but that’s all… Continue reading »

An iPhone? – Nah!

In answer to Lisa’s question! I’ve looked at these, and although they ‘re a nice phone (and even nicer with the 3G option) I think I’ll give it a miss at the moment… I’m still loving my HTC Trinity, but might be tempted into the HTC Touch Diamond in the not too distant future (I’d be more tempted if it had a memory card slot – actually not just tempted – I’d want one right now!!!). As an aside – check out Lisa’s hunt for Harry Potter with her G3 Canadian iPhone in London!

Seeing Two of Everything!

I synced my new SPV M700 with my work PC today, it did it again and created duplicates of every single item in my Contacts (that took at least 10 mins), it’s still working on the Tasks, and Calendar (I dread to think what it will do given the size of my Calendar!). I did tell it to combine items but that’s because I don’t want it to lose anything… But now I’d have to spend several hours de-duping… I’ve found several tools which I’m going to try in the vain hope that they’ll sort the problems out.. http://www.slipstick.com/addins/mail_duplicates.asp http://www.modaco.com/content/pocket-pc-software/267793/dupededupe-remove-duplicate-contacts/ Update: The DupeDeDupe software sorted my Contact out free of charge, and it’s probably quicker just to change the view… Continue reading »

Impressed with Orange (for a change)

I’d almost bordered on getting rid of my Orange contract recently, and moving over to either T-Mobile (for their data plans) or O2 (for the iPhone obviously!), but they’ve surprised me in the last 24 hours and I may well stay with them. Yesterday for some unknown reason the main keypad on my SPV M700 (O2 XDA IIs, HTC Trinity, HTC P3600 whichever you want to call it!) just stopped working. I promptly rang Orange and asked the all important question….. No, it wasn’t will they replace it, it was: “When are you going to release the HTC Diamond?” I’d noticed it on their website as “Coming Soon” and already knew it was a phone I wanted. The very helpful… Continue reading »
