I have a Windows Mobile Phone. I’m not exactly a fan. I really tried to find useful things to do with this device beyond the obvious check email, SMS, etc., but I can only use my device so long before I’m overcome with an urge to throw it across the room or drop it in the toilet and flush. I put the positive stuff I’ve run across in bold text, as for the rest, Windows Mobile fans can write it off as filler or the ramblings of an idiot. Everyone else can get a feel of what the Windows Mobile experience is like without having to experience it for yourself.

At this point you may be thinking that I really hate this device. I don’t, not really. I just wouldn’t mind at all if it was accidentally smashed into tiny bits, and I enjoy thinking of ways to destroy it. The device provides just enough frustration to dream about destroying it, but not enough to inspire following through with it.
