One of the neat things about my job is that I’m often given cool technology to play with and review. A couple of weeks ago, I got an HTC 6800 from Bell Mobility to play with and so did my fellow WWITPRO executive member and Canadian IT Manager guest blogger, Don Spencer. Well, we decided to get together and do a video review of the device. It’s my first time doing something like this, and figuring out all the camera equipment was a job in itself, let me tell you. But the end product isn’t all that bad – with much thanks going to the co-op student that’s working in our department from Waterloo, Majid Mirza, who did the post production work using Windows Movie Maker.
For me the voice part of any mobile device is actually the least important. I mainly need to use it for email, text messages and note taking. The HTC 6800 does all those functions very well, as well as being a great phone. However, there are some things that I don’t like, along with more that I did. For more information than that, you’ll have to watch the video – it’ll only take 4 minutes and 12 seconds of your day!
If you’re currently evaluating phones, you may also want to check out the review on the HTC Touch which Damir recently posted on the Canadian IT Pro blog. He also made note of the new Windows Mobile web site.
[UPDATE] Due to your feedback, our most excellent intern Majiid revamped the video and turned down the volume on the soundtrack. However, there is still a lot of background noise, which is just due to my video-making inexperience. The next one will be better!
