HTC Universal - gigantic phone reviewed

Htc-Universal52

What's amazing is that even without a case, I felt comfortable using the Universal just about everywhere - even when at the ranch. Being able to fold the screen so that it was protected inside the clam shell allowed a freedom that I had forgotten since my CLIÉ days. Now that I have been reminded, I can definitely say that of them all, this is my favorite PDA form factor.

I have heard complaints from Universal owners about slow startup times, but since I had already learned with my PPC-6700 to keep my Today Screen plug-ins to a minimum that has not been a problem. Overall performance has seemed similar to my iPAQ 4700, never particularly sluggish - but then, it's not like I am ever running the PDA equivalent to Photoshop on my handheld.
