HTC Touch HD [YAIK!!!]

YAIK - Yet Another iPhone Killer

HTC's newest shot accross the iPhone bow is the HTC Touch HD which started to make it's appearance last week is now official on HTC's site. This touch-centric device is clearly designed to subvert the iPhone. Here's some specs and some images of the Touch HD.

What's Not:
No Flash for the camera
No Internal Storage

vs iPhone c/o mobifrance
I don't think this is the device for me. I am still not prepared to loose the hardware QWERTY keyboard. I don't understand why HTC cannot put a decent photo assist flash on their new devices some of their past models had it. I also don't understand why they are not putting in integrated storage with these it clearly is designed to compete with the iPhone. Windows Mobile 7 has to bring more to the table so that the OS will be ready for the future which I believe is in mobile devices.

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.…
