Older generation--why bother

I've had this phone for two years now. It _was_ state of the art (WiFi/GPS) back then, but has been overtaken many times since. First off, why get a Windows Mobile 5 phone which so many cheaper Mobile 6 or 6.1 ones out there? WM5 is SLOW!!!!! While the screen is big at 3", the resolution is quite gross...More
I've had this phone for two years now. It _was_ state of the art (WiFi/GPS) back then, but has been overtaken many times since. First off, why get a Windows Mobile 5 phone which so many cheaper Mobile 6 or 6.1 ones out there? WM5 is SLOW!!!!! While the screen is big at 3", the resolution is quite gross (240x240). The provided HP GPS software is junk. TomTom Navigator 6 works great, but it's pricey. The camera is junk. No 3G. Why is this phone still on the market??? Less
