It's a shame that 18 months after the iPronto
came out they are still trying to debug the unit.
I can understand what you're saying and yes it would have been nice to have had a bug-free product from the outset but I would assume that the iProntoTeam is a very small group and aren't exactly one of Philips main moneyspinners. Certainly since the unit was launched in the UK then as a dealer we've seen Philips consistently working on any problems that we have been reporting back to them and as far as I'm aware pretty much all of the major bugs have been ironed out.
Also I saw that Philips was planing to cut back
on there less then profitable lines. That could
be the end of a product that has not lived up
to its original billing. To bad iPronto has the
making of a good remote just be management has
stop it from be what it should of been.
My information is that the iPronto will continue to be produced, supported and developed and I understand that there is an evolution roadmap for the unit that extends beyond 2005. Of course I'm not Philips and I don't have access to their internal plans but hopefully the people that I do know there are giving me good info.
