It’s been a while since I’ve last updated my mobile gear; currently my toys are a Sony-Ericsson W890i – a thin-and-small-aluminium-box with great sound capabilities (an iPod Touch doesn’t come close to it in terms of audio quality), a Gmail app good enough to ckeck my emails and that’s it. The other device – business-oriented, is an HP iPAQ 910C running on Win Mobile 6.1. Not the smartest smart-phone. Battery life – 2 days at best, not to mention that while on the phone you risk ending the conversation abruptly by simply touching the screen with your ear, plus other inconveniences. The push-email function comes in hand but I’d like to leave aside the work-related activities while I’m ‘OOO’. Nevertheless, for about 2 years or so I’ve postponed any investment in mobile devices simply because there was nothing on the market which could have triggered my interest. Maybe the iPhone, but even so – I’d like to see the concept being pushed towards a more ‘opened’ range of options. Until now it turned out to be simply a cool, entertaining piece of hardware.
Ever since MS has showcased its newly mobile OS (Win7 Mobile) I was a firm believer that this new concept will spawn a range of new, good-looking mobile devices. Not to mention their tech-specs. In this respect the newly leaked photos of the upcoming Dell Lightning may prove my theory.
Now this is something I really look forward on seeing live, considering the new Win7 Mobile capabilities.
