    "Seemingly custom-built for business travelers, the HP iPAQ hw6515 ($450
    with two-year service contract) will tell you where you're going and who

    It's funny how Winmob devices get 22 chances to "get it right" but the
    iPhone has to be perfect.

    And the iPhone is a lot more than just user-friendly, or in the naive words
    of some detractors, a toy. Right now my iPhone "toy" is running Apache and
    SSH servers. With the Web server I have access to my iPhone from any
    computer on the same network--and I only turn it on when I need it. SSH, of
    course, lets me do just about everything on the iPhone from another
    computer. Or I can use a terminal right on the iPhone itself. This is a full
    blown 'nix 'puter that is capable of just about anything. Heck, I have a
    cron job that FTPs my contacts and addressbook databases to safe location
    each hour. And the hardware fits the iPhone like a glove: it just works.

    Could *never* say that about any Winmob device I've ever owned.

    If the iPhone has to be "perfect" it's only because of Steve Jobs crapping
    on every phone that ever came before it at the 2007 keynote. HE set the
    bar!

    Which is very cool, but requires a level of hacking that makes the
    convoluted reg editing and tweaking of a WinMo phone look a walk in the
    park!

    > Could *never* say that about any Winmob device I've ever owned.


    I'll give you that. Unfortunately, the touchscreen version of the WinMo OS
    has never been built from ground up for telephony use. It's always been a
    "kludge" built by grafting phone hardware onto an existing OS built for
    PDAs.

    The WinMo "Standard" version, however, (formerly known as "Windows Mobile
    Smartphone") for non-touchscreen devices is a far more stable and
    phone-centric OS- it WAS designed as a phone OS unlike the PDA versions, and
    was MS' answer to the earlier attempts of phone manufactures to build PDA
    phones built on the Pocket PC platform. I don't use it, however, for the
    same reason I don't use an iPhone- there are too many features lacking from
    them that are readily and easily available on WinMo Pro devices. I'm
    apparently all too willing to trade ease-of-use and stability for an
    enhanced feature set! ;-) I did buy my wife a WinMo Standard handset
    because, like the iPhone, it too "just works" for it's intended
    out-of-the-box functions, but, like WinMO Pro, is also easily enhanced by
    third-party apps- just not to the same degree, although that's been changing
    as more developers concentrate on the now more popular "Standard" platform.

    Well, you were saying that the phones I listed require "tech Geek"
    expertise to use functionality without effort. I showed that you were
    anything but right. In that context, your statement makes no sense as a
    reply.

    I laugh at this.

    I can sit across from people who have these devices and show them a
    neat feature of the iPhone, they will say they think their phone does
    that too and they will play with it for several minutes and then give
    up. They can not remember how!

    Those other phones are user friendly - NOT.

    Sure they are. They have voice dialing, SMS, high speed internet.... A
    bunch of easy to use features that the iPhone can only dream about at
    this point.

    And in some cases, the interface is much more intuitive than the iPhone.

    My iPhone now has voice dialing and vocie command. That is what is so
    neat about this is that you can add or create missing OTB features
    with the iPhone which is a powerful waffer thin computer with a great
