Phil, Newbury

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
The HTC Touch Flo interface is great and makes using Windows Mobile easy and fun. The slide down keyboard makes text entry a lot faster (if you're comfortable with T9 predictive text)
Bad points:
The poor device performance in terms of the graphics, HTC hasn't got the device drivers to make full use of the hardware and this really shows. Screen re-draws can be awfully slow. The device is fast, it's just the response of the display which makes it feel slow.

Tathan, North Wales

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Decent WM6 device, doesn't have GPS sensor but otherwise good. Screen is a lot better than previous HTC (SPV M600) and despite looking similar in terms of size is a world slimmer. One of the best phones that is free on a sensible contract and certainly the best PDA. TYTN II if you've got the money, otherwise this.
Bad points:
The HTC TouchFLO software is fairly useless for me tbh - looks nice and works well sometimes but often dumps you into a situation where you have to get the stylus out anyway. Maybe I'm just not down with the kids man.

Couple of bugs... transcriber module keeps disappearing and claims to not have enough memory to open camera when nothing else is running and nothing installed.

Finally the big button dropped off after a couple of days, glue technology obviously not having reached the point in Taiwan where it can be successfully used to stick things together.
