But as you may have noticed the machine is in full force (media, surur and all); it is no longer possible for me to address every fabrication and deceptive fact that he tries to infuse as the truth.
surur may support some other company, this could be, and probably is, quite true. But I believe it to be different than what my role seemed to have taken on here. I was in a position of constant defending and rectifying what surur seems he must thrust onto the forum. I have no chance to partake in propaganda (positive or negative) as surur does.

My favorite device is my old HTC Universal, but its a bit outdated by current standards. It could do with HSDPA instead of just UMTS, built-in GPS is very 2007, and it could be a bit thinner. It could do with a better D-pad on the screen side, and a 4 inch screen could be fitted where the 3.6 inch VGA screen is now. These days even 800x480 screens are not uncommon.
On the OS side, the device lacks USB host for no good reason, it should be easier to connect via A2DP to a headset, and the built-in apps could be prettier. PIE could do with being multi-tabbed, and there seems to be a demand these days for a full-screen overview of a website, like in the IPhone, but also the new NetFront and opera mini.
There is no perfect device, but of course there could be a device thats perfect for one person.
The strength of the WM market is that there is such a variety of devices to choose from, so there is a good chance you CAN find the perfect device, and if there is shortcomings of the OS there is a good chance you can get 3rd party software to rectify it. The IPhone fails in both areas.

Archie and Surur are nothing alike.
Archie is an Apple fanboy / Palm/Treo basher. His past post show this clearly. (Not that there is anything wrong with that, other than him posting incorrect info and not understanding technology.) But to each their own.
Surur (it seems to me), if all about form factor and function. He does not rabidly support MS, but rather is critical of devices (any type) that are up to snuff (his opinion, which I think many hold similar view).
Surur posted he likes slide-out keyboards...I don't. Personally preference, but I don't see him or me saying HTC/MS/RIM/whoever has the ultimate solution. It's an evolving thing - competition is good.
As for the iPhone, it is slick, pretty and cool. But it is far from the BAEA that Archie makes it out to be.
If anything, the only thing Archie and Surur have in common is some bashing of Palm (the company) on how they execute.)

whoa MikeC! surur not a rabid ms supporter? or do i have him confused with Malatesta?
oh well.....i don't think they sound the same....Archie simply likes what Apple has to offer in the iPhone and has been forced to defend himself at every turn. i hardly think Archie is an MS hater and really doesn't spend all that much effort talking down Palm/Treo (i like to though). Surur doesn't seem to care much for Apple/Jobs and likes to downtalk the iPhone, likes to find fault in it (like i do a Treo) and in Archie's thoughts.
remember the movie First Blood?

did you talk down the Treo 680? how about the Mogul that even one wants to create a new Forum for.
you talk down the iPhone "mainly because it's incredibly hyped."
that seems like a very silly reason why, but hey, a mans gotta do what a mans gotta do, right?

I think Surur means it's hyped up to be something greater than it is, so he's cutting it back down to size.
Me, I don't really care about the hype. I expect that anyway, they can't sell the phone otherwise. I just want to know if I can use it.
