    Have to say my sis just got one and I was underwhelmed. Didn't have a long play but it just didn't feel all that & I'm also all ready fed up of her randomly phoning me from her bag or the phone answering in her bag. Not sure if that is just her settings or the phone but I haven't had that problme from someone since the old nokias! Added to that I am very wary of WM now, although I have been hearing that 6 is much better.

    I do have to say that the iPhone Killers review reads really badly, as in not much of a review more like a Touch fan comparing.

    Windows can read and write to OS X partitions with a little bit of software: MacDrive

    OS X can also read and write to NTFS partitions with a little bit of software: Macfuse and NTFS 3-G. You only need to download NTFS-3G though as it has Macfuse bundled with it.

    Well I'm a hard man to please with gadgets and I'm impressed. Sounds like she's not putting the keypad lock on, though to be fair, did take me a bit to work out how to engage it! Not sure on formats off the top of my head, but haven't had to convert anything... yet!

    Had that a while ago and it worked fine for a while but then it just starting saying that my partitions were corrupt and never worked correctly for me even after fresh install of xp and updates to sp2.

    Ran checks on OS X and also booted up from the os x installation media both of which using disk util reported no errors like what mac disk did so I have never used it again.

    Same here and although the HTC Touch HD looks nice I am still not keen on the HTC Touch HD OS and hence why I got the iphone - and yes I know about the iphone 3G S but am still waiting for the next one to come out as am hoping they will upgrade it again with some more goodies.

    @ HodgeHi

    Thanks for the suggestion anywho - just I dont want my music / itunes etc getting corrupt and obviously OS X does not truely support NTFS and FAT32 does not support over 4gb so a bit knackered on that front - I think there is something 3G or some addon like fuse that you can install for NTFS read / write capability but not sure what that would be like so didnt want to risk it.

    xdasite.com can answer all of your questions regarding HTC phones.

    I know the owner there and he knows his stuff.

    Might be useful for syncing music to various devices - Doubletwist by DVD-Jon!
