Last Thursday, I purchased a under my contract.  I had previously tried other phones like the but did not like the battery life it had.  I also looked into getting a , but unfortunately our company is moving toward Windows Mobile devices to make the integration between our laptops and our Exchange Server easier.  Another nice thing about having such phone is that I can write software for it using the .

Here's what I've discovered/really like after a week of having this phone:

  • Battery life is OK

Earlier on my battery life didn't last very long, but then I realized that I had immediate synch for my emails from our Exchange Server.  After I switched it to sync every 5 minutes, the issue went away.

  • QWERTY Keyboard is NICE

I must say that having a decently sized keyboard is pretty nice.  My typing is not great on it yet, but it allows my hands to grip it nicely so I can move with it rather quickly.

  • Camera Software

The software for the camera is pretty cool.  I just love how easy it is to interact with the menu items for both still and movie settings.  The quality of the video is descent enough for a mobile phone.

I must say that having a data plan does make the experience with the phone tons better.  The download speed is pretty descent so I don't have to wait too much to get my content.  However, the only thing that I find a little annoying is that I can't do multiple browser instances going at the same time.  It's not awful, but it would be a nice to have.

Do you have a Windows Mobile phone?  If so, how do you like it?
