Being an owner (among other devices) of Samsung BlackJack smartphone I was postponing the free Windows Mobile 6 upgrade until a better time. Better time has come today, so I went all in – backed up the device, checked to see if I really have all the appointments in my Outlook calendar and proceeded with upgrade.
I haven’t been timing the process with precision, but I believe it took around 20 minutes to reflash the device. Upon reboot, the instruction suggested doing the reformat of the device. Finally, the doom of PC has fallen upon smartphones.
The new interface is just a notch better then the previous one. Everything looks like miniature Vista, which got me worried. However, I didn’t noticed any significant degradation in speed, which was my primary worry.
I am still installing software that I need to use the i607 productively, so there is a lot of areas that remain untouched with this new operating system. Stay tuned for more reports.
