As I mentioned previously, I installed the unofficial WM5 ROM image on my Verizon Samsung i730 Pocket PC Phone device.
It’s very well-baked – all the little Verizon apps are there (VoiceSignal, Remote Control, etc.). Everything just worked – I only experenced some errors with one app that I use, which I’m going to update and see if it fixes. One cool thing is error reporting when an app crashes – just like WIndows XP, it will ask you if you want to send an error report to Microsoft.
What do I love the most so far? It’s a tie between the soft keys (now you can do eveything with one hand, or without using the stylus) and the WM5 version of Pocket Internet Explorer. PIE changes the way it handles navigation with the d-pad, so instead of paging up and down, it actually goes from link to link, making it even easier to surf one handed.
You can bet I’ll be posting more updates (took lots of photos, etc.), so stay tuned!
