Windows Mobile Gripes

It seems all I’m doing these days is complaining but why is it that when I forward a link from a web site on my iPAQ, it doesn’t get recognized as a valid hyperlink in my email? It’s being sent as plain text and not HTML.
I’m not crazy about having to upgrade to a brand new ipaq to fix this and since Windows Mobile 2005 won’t be available for mine, maybe I’ll find another way of reading my feeds. Why can’t the mobile team just get a fix for this and just release it as a patch?
If Apple can make a Mac for $499 and I can upgrade the OS, why can’t I buy a Pocket PC for $399 and have it at least last longer than one year without having to upgrade it?
