Whenever I’m at a press event and I run into James, I know at some point in the night we’re going to be laughing at the latest dumb move by Canadian mobile phone companies. I’m an ardent fan of cool cell phone technology, and James is such a fanatic he owns a cross-border shopped mobile device that is currently not even sold in Canada.
For the past couple of weeks I’ve been toying with Bell’s HTC Touch phone, and I’m a bit of a fan, with one minor disclaimer. My first impression has definitely been on the “wow” side of things though. I love the size of the phone, the controls are straightforward, and I like all of the features. The only place where the phone loses me is when I actually make a call and boom, every application on the phone opens.
