Build a business case: developing custom apps

Landscape architecture

The Windows navigation system shows one of its quirks with the keyboard open. Just as you can only navigate the web while you’re viewing the screen in portrait mode – though you can turn it on its side to read in landscape format – you can’t navigate the phone’s menus while you’re holding the phone in landscape mode with the keyboard open. It’s not disastrous but it is awkward, and should really have been sorted.

Elsewhere there’s a fast 1GHz processor, 8GB of memory, which you can’t expand and HTC’s OK but not great 5Mp camera with 720p HD video recording. The battery held up fairly well, delivering a little over a day of fairly heavy use.
