Recently bought an HTC Apache which is my first foray into pocket pc phones and im really impressed with what these types of phones can do. As well as being able to update it to WM6 and install various custom themes and programs.. im really happy. Just one thing...

The speakerphone absolutely sucks.. i mean it's downright horrible lol Anything like a wave or mp3 file sounds really gutless. the mp4 videos look great on the screen.. but i wish the quality of the speaker was at least half decent. It's good enough for the normal built in polyphonic ringtones but crap for anything else :( When im at work at breaks, i like to check out my mp3s/mp4 videos without my headphones or when i forget them. It's like everything is so good and then it comes to the speaker and its a big letdown.. im guessin the speaker budget was a lot less than everything else lol

In saying all of that and a possible upgrade later, which of the current pocket pc's have a good quality speaker?? My sanyo 9000 had a great speakerphone so lookin at something similar.

being on telecom, the tytan is the only other option huh.. but if i change to voda, what would be the best pocket pc on their range including possible imports?

any feedback much appreciated!

cheers

None. Their speakers are not built for multimedia experience. You have to use a pair of headphones for best results.
