you like the real phone because of their good emulator support ?
As a development platform, yes, having an accurate emulator is good. (2nd only to having on-device debugging like the motorolas and sony ericssons)
i can only point to:
- images size limit of 16k
Yup, I agree it can be a pain, however it only effects the early Siemens phones. The 65 series (m65, c65, cv65, s65 cx65 etc etc etc) do not suffer from this limitation.
- i turned the handy three times, cause i thought only to discovered the front screen (101x80 !!!)
again, the newer phones have more standard resolutions - 130x130, 130x176, etc etc.
- did you ever notice the main menu of mc60 ?
theres the typicall 3x3 icon menu and you have a 4-way
controller. guess what happens if you press left or right
Yeah, dumb isn't it - the interface is pretty crap on the later phones too :|
However, its nothing when compared to the O2 X2/3/4 series, or the Sagems.
- sometimes i whish i had a crank to speed that damn devices up. they are not slow, they are *horror*, especially when managing more than 2 and a half sprite
Samsungs beat Siemens for slowness, no contest at all
look at Jbench for proof
