Since K-Jam I have been using Windows Mobile 6.0. K-Jam comes with Windows mobile 5.0 however I cooked a 6.0 Rom. The features of 6.0 were really amazing and the performance was also better then compare to 5.0
The first time when I cooked Rom I was scared to install as I was not aware if the mobile would come up or not or will I brick my phone. However after few attempts I could manage to install the Rom successfully. I also install the cooked Rom’s on my friends Pocket Pc. It is fun for me to have new featured without changing the handset.
I also installed WM6.0 when I bought Vario II. Later when windows 6.1 was launched, I was thrilled to see the features of 6.1 and started to research on where to get the cooked Rom or where do I get ingredients to cook one.
After almost a month I could manage to create 6.1 Rom and installed in my Vario II.
Well I could not see much of new features in new version of Windows Mobile 6.1 apart from few good features.
- Instant messaging-like text
- Simpler e-mail and Bluetooth setup
- New Home screen interface
- New Getting Started Center
- Security enhancements
- Easier Wi-Fi connection
This make windows mobile interesting there are lots of third party tools which makes usage of phone amazing. (I will cover third party Softwares in future blog).
I was never scared of losing my data while upgrading the OS or install applications. All the data like contacts and files on my mobile is always synced with my Laptop and my SMS is always synced with Jeyo Mobile Extender.
To summarise, I have used various mobiles (Nokia, Samsung, Sony) the best experience and value for money I found is with Windows Mobile.
However all said and done, I am all game for new revolution of Google Android (First open source mobile operating system). My research is on for Android and hopefully will get some useful tips on the site too.
