On a posting yesterday on the Microsoft My Phone forum, a worker from Microsoft confirmed that once the trial for Premium services ends that you can buy the service in full for $4.99.
There is no word on a UK pricing in the thread, but I have posted to ask this to them. The thread is here for anyone interested:
The best bit for me is that this looks to be a one time only price, as my original concern was that this was going to be a monthly subscription service.
The fee will be payable via the Windows Marketplace either on the device or from your My Phone account online.
Let’s jut hope that they can fix the locate my phone feature for the Touch HD:
I’ve been a OneNote user for some time and namely with OneNote 2007 and it’s lack of Ribbon UI.
When I originally got my old O2 XDA Orbit (HTC Artemis) it came with OneNote Mobile as part of the office applications, however I was not a user at this point in time.
As time moved on and I began to use OneNote, I had upgraded the ROM on my phone which meant I no longer had OneNote.
I was left in the same situation with my Touch HD as the Windows Mobile 6.5 ROM I am using doesn’t include OneNote, however when I attached my phone via USB today so that I could flash the Radio and the ROM with fewer builds, I noticed a popup from Office 2010 which 2007 never showed.
(I have attached the phone via USB before, but it’s always been with Office 2007 installed not 2010 like now)
So today was contract renewal and phone upgrade day.
I went to Carphone Warehouse on my way home knowing that on Monday they had 200 HTC Touch HD’s in stock in the warehouse.
Much to my disappointment they have managed to flog all 200 of them so they are out of stock and probably won’t get more for another two weeks. It’s just lucky my Nicky loves me as she’s let me have her two day old Touch HD and she’s going to take my upgrade.
Well not technically true because I’ve been using HTC devices for about the last three years, with my HTC Wizard first, my HTC Artemis now, but today my 18 month contract with O2 UK is eligible for upgrade, so I’m trotting down to Carphone Warehouse after work to order my HTC Touch HD.
They don’t keep them in stock in the stores but they deliver to home, so tomorrow when I finish work I shall be in possession of it.
Nicky got hers earlier this week and it’s gorgeousÃ¢â‚¬Â¦I can’t wait.
