Engadget finally picked up the video issue with the HTC Kaiser / AT&T Tilt, and this got HTC around to answering questions about it vs. blowing off the situation: HTC further responds to video driver issue, will improve future products – Engadget.
Well, http://www.htcclassaction.org/ probably helped a lot, too.
The CorePlayer guys have done some coding so that their upcoming product will work more natively with the hardware on the device, so it’s a “for pay” solution for watching videos at a more natural flow. Unfortunately, all remaining video heavy applications (like a graphical GPS program) suffer without a driver to do all this acceleration naturally.
My old Axim v51 kicks butt compared to the out-of-the-box HTC Kaiser / AT&T Tilt. And that’s too bad.
In this day and age, Windows Mobile devices need to compete directly against the iPhone, and this is a case of a hardware provider falling down and not doing the right thing for their customers.
