Sorry but don't you know that WM5 has been out on the market since October 2005 when the first PPC on the market featuring it, T Mobile MDA Vario (HTC Wizard) was introduced.

Can't understand how anyone who is remotely informed could grossly misinform the public that the Sprint PPC6700 is the "first ...PPC ...with WM5" in Jan 2006.

Sorry, but don't you know this is a Smartphone site and not a PocketPC site?

Well, I can't understand who you're talking to, or what you're talking about. I don't see anyone in this thread talking about the first Windows Mobile 5 Pocket PC being available in January of 2006.

I read through the thread 3 times trying to figure that post out.

Did you happen to notice at the top of that part of the newsletter it says "Sponsored By Windows Mobile". In other words, that's an advertisement. And as for it linking to threads, it doesn't link back to this site. It's an ad, and it links back to whatever the Windows Mobile people want it to link to.

So instead of creating a new thread and simply outline your concerns, you felt it would be better to randomly pick an active thread and start flaming it without even explaining what you're going off about - nice. Rolling Eyes

I've split this off from the original thread and moved it to the HoF&S forum.
