SmartPhone 2002 Dev Kit -> Where to begin ??? (or $499 paper weight ?)
OK so after having spent $499.- I get a SmartPhone 2002 phone that is
already outdated due to SmartPhone 2003.
On top of that the SmartPhone 2002 SDK is extremely poor to work with. I
feel like I have been transported back to MS C 1.0 days.
While the API reference is available, the following is lacking:
1. A proper get started tutorial that shows how to start a project, step by
step on how to write a "Hello World" application, and gradually takes the
developer to more and more sophisticated features of the SDK and phone.
2. A guide to the samples, this sample demonstrate the following features:
Where the heck do you expect developers to start ???
Tell me what I need to know to develop on the smartphone !
This DevKit, and then what ? Conferences ? When/where ? Training ?
How much is this going to cost me ??? What is my ROI on this ???
You guys have no clue on how to make it in this business.
I'm a shareholder and I hate this waste of shareholder capital.
