More rants from Jacek

Walter S. Mossberg from WSJ hates Microsoft

June 11th, 2006

…. when he writes again things like:

While the Q keyboard is larger than the Treo’s, we actually found it worse for typing.

it has a scroll wheel and back button on the right edge. The Q’s keyboard has more space between each key than most smartphones, but the rounded shape of the keys themselves makes them uncomfortable to use for more than a few sentences of email.

… what indicates that Q’s keyboard is useless for typing. This is very harsh judgement - it is like saying that “this Porsche car is useless for drivng, after 5 miles you just can’t drive with it”. QWERTY keyboard of Q is main argument for Q, etc and saying that it is useless is really very strong opinion.

I was playing with Q very shortly only so I can’t sure for sure, but I dunno whether Mossberg is right not. Maybe he is. It would mean disaster for Motorola :-( and quite scary.

So, let's get this straight, he hates Microsoft because the Moto Q has a shit keyboard? Riiiight.
