T3’s Windows Mobile 6.5 round up

Untitled picture

T3 has been working for a while on group test of four of the most popular Windows Mobile 6.5 handsets on the market. Weighing up the pros and cons and it makes for an interesting read. Check out the highlights after the break. Confusingly they have a picture of the Touch Pro2 over the Touch2 section. Even from the review it is difficult to judge as to whether with are reviewing the Touch Pro2 and Touch2, however given the lack of mention of the Qwerty keyboard I guess they mean the Touch2 and have merely posted the wrong picture.



Sony Ericsson Xperia X2
£605 sim free
Love: Great 8-meg camera with camera light, effective QWERTY keyboard and good music software
Dodgy touch-sensitive controls, a screen that needs a lot of stylus input and occasionally complicated Panels overlay.

We say
: Great shape, smart screen and good keyboard are let down by clunky Panels interface

Review | Pics | Sony Ericsson


T3 Test Winner: Samsung Omnia II
Love: Superlative vivid display, responsive touchscreen and excellent Samsung Widgets
The odd Cube setup is a less successful interface but is the phone’s only real disappointment

We say
: The large, bright screen is a winner and Samsung’s stylish design make this phone stand out

Review | Samsung Mobile


HTC Touch 2
Love: HTC’s neat TouchFLO interface is about the best non-Windows setup you’ll find
There’s no flash on the (average) 3.2-megapixel camera

We say
: If you fancy a small handset, this is the best WinMo phone you’ll find, thanks to HTC’s TouchFLO

Review | HTC


Toshiba TG01
Love: Great screen and super-quick processor make this phone good to use
The limited Tosh overlay to add to the Windows experience

We say
: If you want a portable monitor big enough for watching video, displaying photos and making documents easily readable, the Tosh delivers
