We enjoy pointing out what pains us about our OS of choice around here, and it looks like somethings will be addressed in the next few years as Windows Mobile rolls on to post-WM6 releases. Points made in the posts here include the fact that service providers may simply have too low of a bar to meet when it comes to application responsiveness and phone optimization, as well as the fast that the WM team has been focused on Enterprise features and leaving regular users a bit out of the loop. Some of these regular user features are mentioned in this piece by Engadget discussing Windows Mobile 6.1 and it's new features. Personally I'd love to see Windows Mobile catch up to the ease of use that some other UIs enjoy, and we NEED a better browser. That being said, despite it's short commings, I'm still feeling like I'm most suited for Windows Mobile - and I sometimes wonder why! I guess I'm used to the compromises that we've all made working with Windows Mobile that current devices in other OS'es don't seem to make their users adapt to. Thoughts?
