  • Kinda works, no USB functionality

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Kinda works. Haven't had dropped calls, though not many of them have been made.

    Cons:

    USB doesn't work. Under WinXP shows like drive E: with 0 capacity; an attempt to format it under WinXP causes WinXP to suggest to insert a disk into drive E: (!) - how silly !.
    Under Linux the picture is clearer:
    usb 2-10: New USB device found, idVendor=1af0, idProduct=8850
    usb 2-10: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
    usb 2-10: Product: Dark Horse
    usb 2-10: Manufacturer: Mobile Storage

    OtherThoughts:

    Nice to have a torch light and two batteries. Both cameras work, though I need none.
    Haven't tried video recording.
    FM radio has poor reception - only the strongest stations in the vicinity, other radios at home do much better.
    Manual is unclear, with no pictures.

    Bottomline:

    If you need it as a data device with desktop connectivity, don't count on it.
