Default Switching from Windows Mobile to EVO. Questions.

Hi,

I am a longtime Windows mobile user (started with the Cassiopeia in 1998), but I am ready for the switch to Android. Are there other former windows mobile users on this forum and , if so, how did the switch go. Any issues with Exchange Server sync? Also, I love using my WinMobile device (TouchPro2) as a USB drive. I have a briefcase folder on my storage card and can easily synchronize files within this folder with 2 PCs. Does Android offer similar functionality. Any other tips and pointers?

I made the switch a while ago from a whole slew of WM devices to a Hero. Trust me, you will never look back. There is nothing I ever used to do on my WM devices that I can't do on an Android. USB storage included. Plus, you'll actually ENJOY interacting with your device (especially the Evo) which was a very welcomed change for me. Do it.

I am a BIG WM user since inception. I have always enjoyed some of its features and definately its customization. The processors didn't catch up with the OS experience( in truth the WM OS needed a lot of tweaking ) but now with the newer processors the experience is much better but still not good enough for me to look back. I made the move the Android and will consider WP7 when it comes out. I live in and out of Routers and Windows Environments.
Exchange works great and I have moved a large group of clients over to the HTC Incredible and another group this week. They wanted the Apple IPHONE but without the potential of having an extra battery to carry around they had a problem with that. That was their decision not mine as I don't care either way as long as they pay me

They like the Exchange Sync and so do I. Is it perfect? No but it does work well. There are many ways to secure an Android to MS Exchange experience. They tested out the phones for 30 days and are more than happy to make the switch.

You won't regret it and if you do then you can always get the HD2 or HD2 T9193 that will support AT&T 3G.

Good luck and happy Androiding

if you want a good exchange experience, i recommend the app "touchdown". you have to pay for it, but it's far, far better than htc's exchange syncing support, and the dev frequently updates it.

I recently left VZW on a WiMo .5 on a xv6800 and totally love the Evo. It is SO MUCH FASTER and responsive.
