Why does it say VGA recording only available in some models?
Does this mean the english OS does not have this because of some patent / chip restrictions?
If so I better cancel my order for the english OS and get the danish one.
No VGA recording may be intended for the north americian version, that was the reason that there was a dispute over some Qualcomm chips shipping into the US wasn't it?
What happens if Qualcomm chips get shipped into the US? Is Qualcomm ment for Europe?
That's why they have two version of their processor/system-on-a-chip:
the MSM7200A, which support VGA encoding at 30 fps
the MSM7201A, which is exactly the same except it does not support VGA encoding at 30fps (I think it is [email protected], [email protected]), due to patent problems with some american companies. All devices with 7201A are targetted for selling in the US (although some may end up in europe), while no 7200A device should be sold in the US (although I guess some grey market and private sales may end up bringing 7200A to the US).
TD2 is now exclusively with MSM7200A, so not for US. I guess the version with US 3G which is due later will include 7201A...if Qualcomm has not solved the patent problem since then (unlikely, as their 7200 line is at the end of its life)
That means that all TD2 sold now are with VGA 30 FPS as I understand from what you are writing? And later there will be a specific 7201A for the US?
Expansys-usa.com is also selling the 7200 processor version
As long as it does not bring them patent litigations, they would not care....In fact, I guess they would be all for it (while not giving any support nor warranty for non-official roms), if it means they sell more devices...Surely HTC knows that using only software limitations, it would be hacked instantly
I am almost sure you will have the version with better VGA recording. As no official US models exist yet, no point in crippling the VGA recording at the moment...I got the English OS version, it says processor is Qualcomm 7200A.. I live in Denmark, so I assume I'm getting the European version and not one shipped from the states which has limitations..
Not really an answer to your question, but imho pocketxpdf is much better and free. It always opens documents for me Adobe LE can't open. Adobe LE drove me nuts!Is there anyway to get the "Adobe Reader LE" some other way?
Well reading the manual it appears that HTC has removed the following programs from the Diamond 2
Adobe Reader LE
Voice Speed dial
Which where all available on the original Diamond. Is there anyway to get the "Adobe Reader LE" some other way?
It is indeed!Adobe Reader LE 2.5 is present on the TD2 already.
