Of course. I love WM...I hate the Verizon firmware, but the non-crapped up versions of WM are great.

I've got a Motorola Q9 with WM 6. It's got a few quirks, but I like it. One of the nice things about it is it's super-easy to tether to a PC or Laptop for internet access where ever I might be.

I have a Palm Treo with WM 6.1 on it. The good thing about WM is the number of apps for it out there.

The only PPC's that I have left are now being used for a Ballistic Calculator, and the other is a Remote Control for the household devices.

Pantech (AT&T branded, unlocked on T-Mobile network) Matrix Pro with WM 6.1. Love the dual slider keyboard. Having it sync'd with my Small Business Server 2008 rocks. A bit more horsepower and battery life would be nice, the screen could orient a bit faster, and the volume could be a bit higher; but overall, I really like the phone.

Heh, Verizon HTC Touch Pro 2 running a SSK 6.5 ROM. Might try one of the others available too. I had the i760 with a cooked ROM running 6.1 long before Verizon ever released it. Never been adverse to playing with toys (i.e. running mer on my Nokia N800 too).

I've got an HTC Tytn II (AT&T branded Tilt) and I love it! Wifi, BT, super nintendo emulator, etc. My phone kicks iphone's sorry butt all over the place.

I recently flashed to WM 6.5 and I don't know if I like it as much as 6.1, but I'm giving it a run. I was looking to get a touch pro 2 as a replacement at Christmas, but it's pretty much the same thing as I have now, so I'm actually looking to jump ship and try the android route. Only problem with that is AT&T doesn't have any android phones out... So it looks like I'll be sticking with this one for a while.

I had a Toshiba PPC at one point in time that I was told was "top of the line".





I will never buy a toshiba product again

6.5 is way better then 6.1 IMO. I have the touch pro and touch pro 2. There great ppc's . The best thing about having a winmo phone is that you can get a rom at www.htc-android.com.

There may be an Android rom out for your phone, check http://forum.xda-developers.com/ to find out.

I pickup an Omnia running 6.1 for work. I hated it but put up with it for a year. The layout and features just sucked. I was not until I discovered that HUGE world of ROMs that I started to love my phone. I tried a few but settled on SPB 3.5. I picked this shell because my Omnia is technically my companies phone so I did not want to tweak it too much in case I left the company. I have every possible program I could want on my phone now. I have software for my Google Voice account which let me cancel my personal cell phone. I have ballistic cals, Garmin GPS, Google Maps, SMS-Chat and on and on I could go. I even picked up a 16gb micro SD card and moved all my music to it. When I drive I have my cell phone, GPS and MP3 player all in one package that mounts on my dash. The only thing I dislike about the phone is its lack of HD. The screen is nice but nothing like an HD screen.

You are correct on the omnia kinda sucking with the stock rom. I like SPB but it froze on my touch pro 1 alot when S2U2 would come on.

Cingular 2125! Dropped numerous times and I think the battery is bulging and ready to explode!

I've got WM 5.0 on it. I slapped in a 2Gb memory card to watch movies (.wmv) on the tiny itty bitty screen, listen to tinny sounds of .wma and I have Pocket Street, a mapping program on it. I can sync it to my Thinkpad, too. Plus, it's unlocked.

Yup. I had nothing but problems with S2U2 even before I installed SPB. S2U2 locked up my phone a lot and even locked out my broadband. Verizon was unable to bring it back so I had to do a hard reset .
