living with the IIs
ok, having got over the initial gadget fever which fuelled my earlier post, "O2 in possibly got it right with IIs shock", I thought I'd give an update on life with my new matt black pal.
The software on the IIs is far better all round than previous models, the new users at work have taken to it very quickly & all comment that it's mostly very intuitive.
I still think it looks great!
The phone mic quality appears to be a vast improvement on the II.
The keyboard still hasn't won me over, tapping this post out all style!
I have to admit that the yellow hue on the screen is in attendance on my model, nobody else has complained about this at work but then, they haven't got 2x Xda II & an iPaq 4150 to compare it with.
Bluetooth is not quite as flawless as first hoped! I get some crackling and general flakiness (sometimes connecting, sometimes not) when in use with both a Jabra 250 headset & a nokia car kit. In addition, although the IIs works ok (not immune to forementioned flakiness) with a standard BMW built in bt kit (00465?), it doesn't want to play with the new "i-drive" models (75579?), we've had to resort to using another Sim card in a nokia 6310i and call forwarding when getting in the car! Roll on the first ROM update.
Overall though still more than happy and my old II is stuck in a cupboard gathering dust!
