Just received a replacement handset from work - used to use an HTC HD2 which I didn't get on with at all due to signal issues and the fact I was unable to type using the touch screen keyboard. I put it down to the fact my personal mobile is an iPhone 4 so thought maybe I was just too used to the iPhone..
Anyways, the Optimus is great. Win mobile 7 is a real improvement. It's taking some getting used to but first impressions are that I'm impressed. The typing issue I had with the HTC is gone - finding the Optimus keyboard just as easy to use as the iPhone. And signal is stable and just great - on Vodafone as I was with the HTC but the HTC just kept dropping.
I have a couple of questions:
1. Do I need to update the firmware? Windows has completed a load of updates and I downloaded a support tool from the LG website but the LG-E900 is not listed in their drop down so no idea where to go now..
2. I've registered my hotmail account since it's associated with my Windows Live and XBOX gamertag. I will have to setup corporate email tomorrow, is it possible to run both Exchange and Hotmail?
3. What apps do you guys recommend? I use Evernote on the iPhone which is great..
Many thanks, Rob.
