12/01/2009, While the Sunno A880 was released a couple of weeks back, this doesn’t mean that the final product has no room for improvement. No sir, the Windows Mobile 6.5-powered Sunno A880 intends to appeal to the mass market with a more HTC Sense-like user interface, thanks to the hard work by a couple of users on M8COOL’s forum. This new update seems to work just fine on the Sunno A880, […]
