From the comparison shots it looks like a huge device, of course with all the goodies you get this is understandable. This will be probably out by Q2 2007. Not really on my shortlist of devices at the moment as it doesn't have a hardware keyboard but it's nice to see O2 moving on after parting ways with long time supplier HTC. It would be nice to see how HTC plans to answer the Flame...

If I were HTC I'd come out with something called HTC Ice hehehe then make it have better specs like adding a QWERTY keyboard and GPS. Oh and slapping on a SDHC slot for even higher memory expansion. That would surely piss-off O2 hahahaha!

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.…
