Why Microsoft Windows Mobile Upgrades Suck
And why I prefer my Apple iPhone… Recently HTC announced a ROM upgrade for the HTC Touch HD. Today I tried upgrading my little device… while the process went smoothly, the result as you can see below was quite the opposite…
ROM after ROM, OS build after OS build, I’m impressed with Microsoft’s lack of major improvement. Seriously they’re not new in the PDA and mobile phone business, how hard can it be to release a rock SOLID and NON destructive ROM upgrade for all WiMo devices (including HTC and other manufacturers for their lack of support and ROM upgrades).
To give you an example, I contacted Apple to change my iPhone, not for any glitches or major problems, but because a little white dust got stuck under my screen. I could live with it, I mean it was there for several months and only visible when turned off… Anyway I called Apple, the next day they delivered a new iPhone in a gorgeous package… Put my sim back, resorted ALL my DATA, software and settings with a single synch with iTunes and once done upgraded to the latest ROM upgrade without loosing a SINGLE email, contact, or software data…
Granted the iPhone sucks in some areas, you can’t install anything you want on it, granted we’re talking about a SINGLE platform and an OS made ONLY for this platform… but Microsoft, HTC, and others, when will we get some SERIOUS devices to play with that use Windows Mobile 7? Hell yeah maybe, but will there be anyone left to purchase a device from you guys before then?
PS: No HardSPL on this Touch HD 100% pure stock!
