I would buy this if it were actually real. Where is it? I've been reading about it since late 2008.
sybian os is good os for mobile phone so toshiba should choose this for their mobile
Anonymous, 22 Apr 2009Even if Microsoft started from scratch, it would still be crap. Thats because Microsoft makes ... moreYet it sits in like 8 in ever 10 PC worldwide. I mean yes, agree Windows is just well Windows. But Microsoft isn't designing a software for a specific group. Its for a whole range of people. Also it isn't designing an OS for a specific purpose or following a specific usage. Look at Vista. Windows 7 is going to become Vista+ minus the excess baggage. And since XP, touch support has already been built in into the OS. In other words, Microsoft tend to load Windows with 10 million junk because it still thinks an OS should be all encompassing rather than usable. So what if it copies Mac. I can say the same of Apple copying Microsoft by entering the mobile phone market. Its not copy. Its just technology.
gamelall, 22 Apr 2009True these phones are all very powerful Hardware-wise but the OS just sucks. I mean for real, ... moreYou need to understand why people use Win Mo and if you have used it, need to be using it the way its supposed to. Also need to appreicate what it can do. If you end up buying a WinMo and use it like a Nokia smartphone or think of it as an IPhone, then obviously WinMo sucks. Obviously being a WinMo user my opinion is biased, but having moved from S60, tried out the Symbian Touch, I can say S60 wasn't designed as a PDA OS. Its a phone OS first. Organizer comes second. Even multimedia support ranks higher. For WinMo, its a PDA OS with phone functions and not so savy multimedia support.

No matter what microsoft do to it they're just masking many underlying faults. The whole thing needs to go back to the drawing board, i'd be surprised if it's not already. Phone manufacturers like htc, toshiba, samsung are gonna get very peeved some time soon.
True these phones are all very powerful Hardware-wise but the OS just sucks. I mean for real, Winmo? i cant understand why all these manufactors are backing Winmo so much when its clearly the worst mobile OS out there. Just imagine the Toshiba TG02 and TG03 powered bt Symbian OS9.4 5th Edition. Now that would be a phone to talk about. Its sad to see that outside of Nokia, samsung is the only other manufacturer to really support Symbian when it pretty clear that Symbian powered phone sells way more that the likes of Winmo
Tucks, 22 Apr 2009I agree. I gave winmo the benifit of the doubt last year with the htc touch hd and now regret ... moreYep... but what's the point of starting from scratch (Like the iphone's MacOS or Android or WebOS) when their functionality is sooo limited (please check all the limitations the iphone, the G1 or Dream and Pre have)? All OS have their limitations... all have flaws!
Tucks, 22 Apr 2009I agree. I gave winmo the benifit of the doubt last year with the htc touch hd and now regret ... moreEven if Microsoft started from scratch, it would still be crap. Thats because Microsoft makes mediocre operating systems, all versions of windows included. All they've done is copy OS 9 and OS X in every iteration. In fact, they make mediocre software alltogether. Internet Explorer is slow, insecure and bloated, Powerpoint is a joke in terms of productivity, RD is allways miles behind Citrix, Media player is also slow and buggy.
And the Zune..... well.....
Its good to see a Japanese comp releasing new mobiles outside of Japan.
I really wish Sharp and Panasonic would too.
xisionsuh, 22 Apr 2009Oh, my god... Winmobile?!! These phones deserve a better class of OS program. The Android i... moreI agree. I gave winmo the benifit of the doubt last year with the htc touch hd and now regret it. Beautiful phone but ruined by the os. never again winmo. All the snapdragons processors in the world wouldn't fix this sluggish, bug infested software. Windows need to scrap the whole system and start from scratch. I love bill gates and want to suppoprt him, but he needs some tips lol. Just like Apple with the iphone, lovely os because they started from scratch. Please no iphone hater comments please.
Android is crap, what the hell's wrong with you people.
WinMo has always been crap, these things need a real OS
Oh, my god...
These phones deserve a better class of OS program.
The Android is gonna give it to them.
