Last week I upgraded from an O2 Xda Zest running Windows Mobile 6.1 to an HTC HD2 running Windows Mobile 6.5.
As you can see from the screenshot above, comparing screen size, I installed Spb Mobile Shell 3.5 which I prefer to the HTC Sense today screen, partly because of my familiarity with it but mostly because Spb Mobile Shell offers far greater customization than HTC Sense today does.
This weekend will be a good test of the HD2 as I take it with me to Luxembourg. As I write this (in Windows Live Writer 2011, by the way) I’m copying The Lord of the Rings trilogy to my phone in WMV format to watch on the journey.
I’ll write up a full review next week after I get back in Blighty.
By the way, I used MacX DVD Ripper Pro for Windows to convert it to Windows Mobile-friendly WMV format—rather than Spb Mobile DVD which is what I had been using until this week—but that’s also the topic for another blog post, methinks.
