Is your HTC device underperforming?
Expectations. A word that transcends time and humanity. Once in a while, it comes back to bite you in the ***. When was the last time you spent your paycheck on a device that didn't perform up to expectations? Well, a few people certainly did with their HTC devices.

Here's what wrote on its Web site. "HTC has neglected to include the necessary drivers needed for the devices to come to their full potential." Handhelds affected include the TyTN II, Touch Dual, Touch Cruise and S730, etc., based on the MSM7200 and MSM7500 Qualcomm chipsets. The problem, however, isn't with the chips, but the missing drivers.

While we are still waiting for an official response from HTC, here's what may have happened. Our comments are in brackets. The engineers and technicians forgot to include the drivers. (That's ridiculous.) Or the company thinks consumers wouldn't notice. (It's a treacherous Internet world out there. You never know when someone will hit you with a lawsuit.)

Either way, we hope HTC will come out to explain the situation soon. Are you one of those affected? Is your HTC device underperforming? Let us know in our Talkback.

Why... BUZZ worthy and brought to you by Cnet-Asia...
by ozyman4269 / January 22, 2008 11:06 PM PST

I'm not trying to cast disparaging remarks on HTC. I bought, at full price/no plan discount-rebate(in Asia) the HTC TyTN II and I really like my device and think it's a quality product.

How ever I would like the most muscle that my device can muster for what I paid for it.

Furthermore I believe this is a BUZZ worthy story and it was brought to my attention BY CNET-ASIA!

What is your conflict with this story/thread?
