Summary: The HTC Surround was very disappointing. I guess if you have never owned an iPhone this would be an awesome phone. I bought this phone then sold it about a week later. I was waiting to find something to impress me and there was nothing. The App store is very limited compared to the iPhone app store. A lot of the things that I was used to doing on my phone I was no longer able to do. I also could never get this thing to sync to my computer.
Summary: This sexy, classy device hides a multitude of shortcomings.
Pure is a Windows device and as such promises to provide a useful PDA replacement. The Windows Mobile operating system permits storage, organization and even editing of documents, which can be transferred by cable or blue tooth. The phone comes with a desktop sync application, which I did not get around to trying, but probably works adequately.
There are quite a few negatives.
