Windows Mobile customizability has a rap star singing its praises

Summary:Readers here know that I enjoy using Windows Mobile devices even though they don't seem to be popular with the crowd. Their Exchange support is fantastic and they are highly customizable. I was reading Smartphone Thoughts and thoroughly enjoyed the 16 minute YouTube video interview (embedded below) of Naughty by Nature's Vinnie Brown talking up Windows Mobile. It isn't that often that you hear famous people talking about Windows Mobile and after listening to Vinnie I think he knows as much about Windows Mobile as I do.

One of the things I like about both the Symbian and Windows Mobile operating systems is their level of customizability. Both of these operating systems have been around for a while now, but there are both still extremely functional and useful. Vinnie talks about all the customizations that Microsoft and HTC made and allow for on the Touch Pro2. He is quite excited about this device (don't you love the way he pops out the names of past Windows Mobile devices?) and I couldn't agree more. He showed off lots of customization they were able to make on their test device.
