Sorry, but I suck at explaining stuff :P
Yeah ok these might all be little things like you say, but the Pandora is is a collection of loads of little things. Without them it wouldn't have become what it is today.Exophase said:Tripmonkey_uk said:The volume wheel was definitely asked for due to the 2X not having one.
I meant to mention this, but I don't consider it a very major decision.
Tripmonkey_uk said:So was a dedicated menu button.
Nor do I consider naming a button "menu", which is hardly a unanimous opinion anyway.
Tripmonkey_uk said:The clam shell is common sense.
Maybe when considering everything else, but even then more people wanted a sliding or swiveling design. OP says that such a design isn't an option, but with everyone else (big company or not) doing something like this I kind of question this.
Tripmonkey_uk said:The touch screen was asked for and bought because it didn't cost much more than the normal screen and it offered more choice. Craig was never really that keen on a touch screen IIRC.
Due to it having a touch screen, it also needed a stylus and a place to put the stylus.
No, craigix definitely wanted a touchscreen long before he mentioned anything here.
Tripmonkey_uk said:The battery wasn't originally going to be easily removable either, but M.Weston made it so after a lot of requests.
Another very minor design decision that was easy to change later.
EvilDragon said:Add WiFi to this list. It was a community request.
Not how I remember it. In fact, craigix believes so firmly in any new gaming handheld having WiFi that he thought Wiz was making a fatal mistake by not including it. It was definitely one of the features the device he envisioned (prior to announcing anything on these boards) included.
Regardless of if you agree with me or not, this forum plus the other open source and gaming forums have all contributed to shaping what has become the Pandora handheld.
I'm not trying to take anything away from the hard work that Craig's done when I say that as he was the one that made all the final decisions etc. but to say that it was all just his idea is plain wrong.
