New gadgets

The past week has brought me two new “gadgets.”

The big purchase was the HTC HD2– it’s a Windows Phone running Windows Mobile 6.5. However before you scream and run away in fear, HTC has developed their own user interface and masked most of the hideous parts of WinMo 6.5.  Microsoft should have featured this phone during the WinMo launch as it’s gorgeous and… dare I say it… a worthy competitor to the iPhone. (According to this article HD2 beats iPhone)

Last night I hooked up (can one “hook up” something that’s wireless?) my new Microsoft Wireless Comfort Desktop 5000.  This is my first new keyboard for the PC in 6 years.  It’s amazing how much a new keyboard can improve the computing experience.

Merry Christmas to me!  I will assign these as presents to myself…
