    I'm not a fan of MSFT but I like my windoze phone over the crackberry I had...maybe it was there, but I have VPN access on my phone now


    Now if I can just get my company to transfer my work number for my personal so I can expense I could get a real phone...iPhone (they do it, I just need to get off my butt and find an ATT plan I want)

      Day one recap:

      http://www.engadget.com/2009/02/16/m...-strikes-back/

      To summarize, Microsoft is apparently threatened by the iPhone and is throwing hundreds of millions of dollars at windows mobile as evidenced by its complete overhaul and the numbers of manufacturers announcing phones based on it....

                  The Taiwanese are coming to the party in a major way now. Asus, Acer, and Gigabyte are invading the cell phone space:

                      I am happy with mine. Could use a better/bigger screen for the internet, but it does it's job to my present satisfaction.
                      Happiness is a nice road, great weather, and driving the S with Sue in the seat next to me.

                      I know for a FACT that the last year of production of the S2000 is 2003!!!!!
                      After that, it will be the S2200 under an assumed name.

                        OK - I was at the Mobile World Congress and have an important update.

                        The Scotland Booth in Hall 1 serves 10, 12 & 15 year old scotch starting at 5:00 PM. (Gratis)

                        Still not sure what that had to do with mobile phones, but it was interesting.

                          These guys have been around for a while. At one point Acer was a much larger manufacturer of cell phones. Larger than HTC, Compal or anyone else. For a brief moment in time Acer was a top-5 handset maker when they picked up the Siemens brand. Most of the Taiwanese have driven most of their volume under other brands such as Motorola.

                          It seems like the Taiwanese government is driving a big campaign for companies to develop a global brand. HTC is doing a very good job of it and has won some government award for their efforts.

                            Actually, it was BenQ that bought Siemens, and that acquisition dragged BenQ's mobile phone group into bankruptcy barely a year later. I was credit manager controlling a 9 figure credit line w/ them through the entire fiasco - what a roller coaster ride that was!

                              Yeah, I guess if we want to be super accurate, Siemens paid BenQ (of the Acer group) 300 million euros to take the mobile phone group off their hands. Not quite a buy-out. More of a sell-out.
