The Perfect Device?

[Updated: 11/28/2006]
A post over at got me thinking on what would be the perfect device:
Here it is:
Quadband GSM/EDGE/GPRS & UMTS [HSDPA if possible]
WiFi 802.11b or higher
Bluetooth w/ A2DP
miniUSB 5 pin [USB 2.0 atleast]
3.5mm audio jack [2.5mm acceptable]
WindowsMobile 5 for PocketPC Phone Ed [atleast AKU 3]
QWERTY [w/ backlight of course]
Touchscreen Input
QVGA [minimum]
Screen size [atleast 2.5 inches nothing smaller]
Memory/Expansion/Processor/Battery Power:
Hot Swappable [doesn't matter what format as long as it is not one of SONY's]
64Mb RAM/128Mb ROM [minimum, MORE would be better]
Minimum 400Mhz [more is better no TI OMAP's unless they are over 200mhz]
The Battery should atleast last 2 days [minimum of 1 day].
Weight/Size/Volume/Form Factor/Look:
Smaller/Lighter the better but not really an issue as long as I get the stuff above.
The least number of moving parts possible.
It has to look nice and professional [this of course is subjective]
Additional Goodies:
GPS [not really important]
Nice package [i.e. cradle included etc etc]
Not an issue [what are we working for anyway eh?]
Now owning an O2 XDA Exec [with AKU3], I could argue that almost all these things fit in to my criteria, except HSDPA, the moving parts thing, and the size/weight. So for now the O2 XDA Exec is as close as I can get, still haven't seen anything else that comes close. I am looking to complement my Exec with a smaller device maybe a WM5SP until 'my perfect device' comes out [hoping it does].

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
