Windows Mobile 5.0 Notification Blues
I've just bought a Qtek 9100, or HTC Magician. Great. I'd done a little
bit of legwork into the devices and operating systems and foolishly thought
:) that by now, Windows CE / PocketPC / Windows Mobile / whatever it's
called these days will be significantly improved over and above what it was,
thus, stuff will work.
Actually, overall a decent improvement over WM2003 and previous generations.
Connectivity is a real strength, both from getting stuff set up and of
course using it too. WiFi, Bluetooth - just works (so far).
But why oh why has the notification bug still not been fixed? Why do I have
to fumble around with patches and whatnot for something that <suppressing
rant> should be basic stuff for any PDA.
<Sighs>. I broke two rules with the Qtek 9100; one was never to buy another
PDA with moving parts (*cough* broke that one with the Tungsten T2) and two,
never buy another Microsoft operating system one either. But it was all so
shiny and fully featured in the store. ;) Is there anything else I should
look out for? I guess the usual PocketPC stuff (I can live with), such as
occasional performance hiccups, the odd crash, and similar...
