HTC MTeoR

I've read very good things about the MTeoR. HTC has been delivering some really high quality products of late and I think it is only a matter of time before HTC and Microsoft over take the market.

The nice thing about buying direct from HTC is that you don't get all the carrier specific software in the ROM, an option that US customers don't really have.

I know someone running the HTC TiTaN on Cingular. He bought it from eBay. Only downside is that his phone doesn't have some of the Cingular specific functions that my 8525 has.

EP, Smartphones generally do NOT have a touch screen. The fact that this device does makes it even better.

Does your carrier support Exchange Push?

Looks pretty good. If you prefer the smartphone form-factor, it's probably one of the best ones out at the moment, and is also 3G-ready.

I'm really digging the ASUS Pegasus too. It's not out yet, and the full specs haven't been revealed, but it looks sweet! :D



A totally environment-friendly product to reflect the company’s respect for a green planet. Pegasus is a super-slim (15.4 mm) PDA phone that incorporates a PDA, a phone and a GPS navigation system in perfect union. The numeric keypad is handy for its phoning functions; a jog dial enhances the interface operation; single-handed control perfectly unites a phone with a PDA. The camera body is finished with brushed aluminum and diamond-cut edges to accentuate superior taste and a feeling of luxury.

You can buy unlocked, vanilla HTC devices from a few online stores here in the U.S. as well. It's much more expensive compared to getting one through a carrier contract, of course, but it's possible.

Here's the HTC TyTN on Amazon, for example:

Besides, all the carrier-specific stuff is just part of the extended ROM, and you can prevent that from getting installed if you soft-reset the device right after the initial setup (screen calibration etc.) :)

It doesn't have a touch screen, but then thats not a feature I am seeking... would be moving to one with a compartmentalised keyboard and I really don't want that either :)

Good tip. I will have to keep that in mind for next time.

Just remember that the ExtROM includes almost all of the carrier-specific stuff, not just the bloat, so you'll also have to manually configure all your data connection, SMS/MMS settings, etc. Then again, if you need anything that's in the ExtROM, there are also ways to un-hide it so you can selectively install only what you need.

It's probably worth it in the end though since you'll end up with a leaner, faster device that's customized just for you. I'm planning to do that the next time I hard-reset my device. I didn't want to do it right after I got it, and I haven't ever done a hard-reset since then.

Well after not finding one in London --

"do you have any phones by htc?"
"er heat transfer coefficient?"
"right, bye"

-- I ordered one from Expansys today, so will hopefully be here tomorrow.

Apparently Bink has one and the battery is not so hot, but it has to be better than the 8800!
