The virtual keys are large enough that most people should be able to use a thumb to tap the buttons. The XV uses several virtual keyboards to make up for its lack of a physical one, including an on-screen key keyboard much like the BlackBerry Pearl’s.

OK, so it maintains a sleek exterior look for the device, and it protects the card from being accidentally ejected, but did anyone ask about how the user would feel being so inconvenienced if they ever wanted to access their memory card for any reason?

Last week Last 2 days Most commented. The design isn’t as fresh, but the features are compelling. Once this is loose, pry it upward, toward the battery compartment, and hold it there. Or perhaps due to unforseen issues, the release date got pused back? Also verizon prides themselves on having the in house techicians, and if you activate other carrier equipment yet have verizon service and something happens you bring it to a store to fix right?


Here’s one of the big problems with the U. And I say that with sarcasm dripping like you wouldn’t believe.

But xf6900 CorePlayer video program wouldn’t play videos properly though Windows Media Player worked well. I like it for what I need it for.

Tablet tools Tablet finder New tablets Popular tablets Compare tablets. The phone definitely feels cheap, the UI alterations are slightly frustrating, and the lack of Wi-Fi is extremely moronic.

I’m xv900 sure what that is, but it’s always coming up as a notification on the screen. The camera here is the same as on the Sprint Touch. Make no mistake, data entry is the big weakness of the Touch.

Second, it makes the edges of the touchscreen easier to access with a xv69900. But you yourself said that you are Loyal to Verizon because of the quality of reception. Now, Windows Mobile can do a lot: I’ll be the first to admitt that the weakest area in VZW is the cell phones, but 11 I would take it out on the store reps, often times companys dont like to disclose info about new phones especially when it comes to release dates.

The Touch sv6900 still quite usable, it just requires a slightly more watchful eye on the battery gage. Performance on the local Verizon network seemed typical of most recent smartphone devices, with data speeds in the predictable to Kbit range, averaging or so. We tried both and dialing numbers was easy, and the touch screen was quite responsive, but typing text messages and e-mails took a xv690 more time with all the multitapping.

I’m also getting tired of any virtual keypad that doesn’t have force feedback.

Yeah, this was a big disappointment for me. But the Verizon Touch doesn’t do anything that many other Windows Mobile devices don’t. A crappy omission, I agree but that makes xvv6900 useless? I have a and love it
